Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really liked staying here. Nice and conveniently located and very helpful staff. They helped me after my stay too, to look for something I left behind. Room was nice and spacious too. Would definitely go back there.

What a beautifully presented place to stay. The owner is so helpful, friendly and welcoming and the room was beautifully presented with its own kitchen. It was so cozy and warm. Location was really good too for walkers who like to explore walks. Very handy to the coastal walkway. And for Mac Donald's fans, it's right across the road. Highly recommend the Amber Court Motel.

We stayed here for 2 nights for 2 adults and 3kids. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit. The unit was pretty basic but had everything you could need. Parking was provided outside unit. Kitchen was a good space with bits you need. The unit and rooms got very hot there were 3 fans but did not help too much. Our 7 month did throw up abit over her cot sheets and they were not replaced but we made do.

We took 15 Triumph Stag cars and their owners for a weekend in Taranaki, and stayed at Amber Court. the motelier, Raewyn, was very accommodating, helpful, and negotiated a deal for the number of rooms. She was very helpful, and I would have no problem with staying there again. Very convenient to downtown, shopping, restaurants, and has easy access.

Greeted and checked in the receptionist. She was lovely. The room is a little worn and furnishings are dated but still clean. If you're wanting something ultra modern then this isn't for you. Was good enough for us, my family was just passing through for the night. Kids slept well, adults not so much. Kids enjoyed the indoor pool. It's not heated but was clean. The spa is right next to the pool so we could watch the kids and be in the spa at the same time. Pool gets booked at reception for an hour at a time which was nice because we got to have it to ourselves. The folder had some good local info, we wouldn't have known about the different entry points to Mt Taranaki otherwise. Central location, lots of restaurants, petrol station, supermarket etc.

Had a great time and Isabell who was managing the motel was very helpful with local knowledge. Great location. The room was very spacious and cosy. The art gallery is well worth visiting and in addition to the Len lye exhibition there was also another great exhibition by Candice Lin. The staff very friendly and informative.

Overall bloody perfect! Positives - Everything. From the massive room, the pool, the location all the way to the amount of pillows! But most of all the lady at reception, very nice, positive and service with a big smile. I wish I got her name so I could give a shout out to her! Please respond! As I have mentioned in most of my reviews, my father is a hard man to please but he loved this place and gives all praise! He said it was the best stay! Negatives - All the bad comments from people who are expecting to stay at the Ritz. Highly give this place a 5 out of 5. Im even going to book with the lads soon. Thank you guys!

We didn't pre-book or look at reviews before finding Amber Court. The welcome was friendly and the room was inexpensive. The motel is in a very handy location - easy walking distance to supermarkets and restaurants, (and every fast food shop you could think of!). The room was very dated but clean, with a comfortable bed. We were given a quiet room in a block "down the back". This was quite separate from the main motel block, tucked in behind commercial buildings. I felt quite comfortable walking up to the main street from the unit at night with my husband, but would have driven if I was by myself.

We had trouble finding a hotel, most were sold out. We got the last room at Amber Court and were told at checkin that the room was dated but clean. The room was quite large with lounge and kitchenette. The bed was comfortable and the shower good, we certainly couldn’t complain about the room for the price we paid.

The room was old fashion, dated and slightly musty. We stayed 2 nights. When you arrive the doors and windows are all open and because of the airflow the mustiness isn't that noticeable until you shut everything. Heating was a problem. We had a 2 bedroom unit, the beds were comfortable and it was very spacious and felt clean. Good location but pleased we weren't positioned up the front as there is a fair bit of road noise.
