We had a group of 40 older people on a tour of Taranaki.
We chose Flamingo for our New Plymouth stop.
From the first phone call till we left, Tony Maree
and Kerry made the whole stay
a breeze and couldn't be more helpful.
We used the games room for a barbeque dinner,
and again they helped to make the evening a great success.
Rooms are fine.
Thanks for a great stay.
Would really recommend it for a group.
But if we went as a couple would definitely choose Flamingo to stay.

We never intended staying in New Plymouth but when my wife broke her arm and was kept in hospital for three days and then advised against travelling we had to find some accommodation, the I-site suggested The Flamingo and I don't believe we could have found better anywhere in the area. Our rooms were really comfortable and well maintained, the motel is situated close to the town so it is easy to walk in to the centre or down to the coastal walkway and there is easy access by car to the many attractions in the area. Tony & Maree ensured we had everything we might need and were always really helpful. In spite of the regretful reason for our stay we really found the motel a very good base. I can't recommend enough the motel, the city and Taranaki as a great place to visit.

Swimming pool including an indoor hot pool.
Room décor getting a bit tired but nevertheless always clean and tidy.
Plenty of car parks.
A range of unit sizes from large living and sleeping space to smaller space to suit most situations.

Our family of four recently spent three nights at the Flamingo. We had two one bedroom suites, and they were perfect for us. The rooms and decor reflect the 1990's, but they were spotless and spacious. Best of all, our host Tony was extremely gracious and accommodating. No request was too much. A member of our group lost a watch while there, and when it showed up after our departure, Tony phoned to confirm that it was ours and posted it promptly. We'll stay at the Flamingo on a future visit.

Nice motel with not much noise from the road. The swimming pool and the hot tub was very nice. The hosts were great and the kids were pleasantly surprised that there some chocolate fish in the fridge.
