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.

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights. The room was perfect: warm, spotless and above all Ian and Helen were so warm and inviting.
The motel is within walking distance to restraunts, waterfront, the beautiful gardens, shops just to name a few of the things. The mountain picturesque coastline and beautiful gardens are also handy by car.
I absolutely recommend Assure Abode on Courtney for the best place to stay in New Plymouth.

This motel is in a very convenient location, is clean and comfortable . The owners are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble. Whilst we were staying there was a group of 20 motor enthusiasts also booked in. The owners did an amazing job of maintaining our peace and quiet whilst enabling the potentially rowdy group to enjoy their carpark barbie and drinks. Not an easy task!

We stayed for two nights on a roadtrip to New Plymouth. We found the room comfortable and spotlessly clean. The owners were friendly and helpful. The motel is situated almost opposite one supermarket, with two more in easy walking distance. Pukekura Park is within comfortable walking distance, as is the walkway, city centre and numerous places to eat. Although sited on the roadside, we were not at all distrubed by traffic noise. We had one of the spa bath units, which had a lovely little spot with table and chairs where we could sit and read.

The rooms were tidy, modern and great value for money. Great location in the heart of New Plymouth. What really touched us, was we had an unfortunate situation with one of our kids and Ian the owner bent over backwards to help us.

This is first-class customer service and shows the value of a good honest kiwi business going out of there way to give their customers a great experience.

We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

I chose this place due to the proximity to shops and restaurants and I needed 2 bedrooms traveling with teens. Our unit was super clean and beds comfortable. Our hosts were friendly and knowledgeable about NP. Wifi was fast in the main area and there's free netflix. My only concern was that there's 2 small couches in the living area when an L shape would work better when watching TV.

Went on a busy weekend where everywhere was booked out. These guys didn't increase their fees, in fact the decreased them because there was only two of us in a 2 bed suite. Amazing!!! Friendly as anything and the room was perfect and tidy and the proximity to town and Pukekura park was handy as. Be back defo!!

Friendly owners, helpful check in, heaps of advice and really tidy, clean units. You can just walk through to Devon Street and the shops and cafes, heaps of car parking and super cosy beds. Super king bed, all the ammenities you need and I can’t overstate how clean the units are. Busy road but didn’t worry us at all.

We arrived late last night and were accommodated with a special rate as well. The owners have only had it for 7 weeks but they're doing well so far!

Possibly one of the most comfortable beds we've slept in here in new Zealand. The bath is big and comfortable and the whole suite was clean and tidy. There was plenty of storage space and good lighting.

We would definitely stay again whenever we visit new Plymouth and you should too.

We were in town for a family gathering, and chose Abode on Courtenay as it had both two bedroom motel suites, and adjoining room studio suites (which effectively worked as family suites, without the additional lounge area).
The motel is a basic strip motel style, with two stories surrounding a parking courtyard. All entrances are off the carpark or balcony. There did not appear to be any children's play area, pool or the like, so it really is built for function rather than relaxation. A great place to stay, but don't expect to hang out there.
The motel rooms were comfortably furnished, and spotlessly clean. Bathrooms were modern, with reasonable amenities. I was impressed that the bathroom had a spa bath with bubble jets and built in pillow - although the bathroom steam extractor fan activated by the light switch was so loud I don't know whether it would have been possible to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing soak. In the bedroom we had a large flat screen TV, mounted high on the wall, which included 10 SKY channels. The TV had a number of different inputs, so I was able to connect my laptop up to it for the kids to watch a DVD. (although luckily I had the connection cables, as the reception wasn't able to provide them).
Abode's location on the one-way Courtenay street is VERY convenient, directly across the road from both Countdown and Pak-N-Save supermarkets, and within a block of the Warehouse, KFC, McDonalds, Burger King, and Burger Fuel. It is also within a 5 minute walk of a number of restaurants and good coffee cafes, and the centre of town is only 4 city blocks and a 10 minute walk at best.
The only real issue I had was with road noise, particularly late at night with loud cars, and when people were walking home from the pub and making a lot of noise on the road outside. I was glad there was a large security fence between the motel and the Courtenay footpath.
For convenience and cleanliness, we give Abode full marks, and would happily consider staying there again for a brief stay in New Plymouth.
