Stayed here one night when passing through New Plymouth with my 7yo and couldn’t fault it. The host was super friendly providing extra info on visiting the Festival of Lights (which was also brilliant). The room was clean, spacious, and the bed was really comfy. Highly recommend!

Friendly welcoming staff, a great place to stay for a weekend away. Rooms are very comfortable we stayed in a two bedroom unit, if you are staying during winter request the switch on your rooms heat pump to warm up your room 30min before you arrive. Central to everything and just down the road from Boy High also across the road from the race course. Highly recommended.

We booked a room at the Pukekura Motor Lodge on spec when we needed to stay overnight last week and we are so very glad we did. We had a first floor superior studio and paid a vey good rate by booking direct with the motel rather than via a booking agency. The room was spotlessly clean and very tidy. It had all the facilities you need when self catering and all the fixtures and fittings were new and of very good quality. The large bed was very comfy. The bathroom was well equiped with toiletries and had a bath as well as a fantastic shower. Whilst the motel is not in the town centre, it is within a couple of minutes drive and there is plenty of parking. Would not hesitate to recommend this motel and we are looking forward to staying here when we next visit New Plymouth.
