Room upgrade and host organization

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Aug 2022
Tony the host arranged flowers for the upgraded room and was very helpful to suggest places to eat and visit. Our second visit to this motel with a ten-year gap. New Plymouth and Taranaki were lovely to see again. Lots of excellent places to eat. Great value for money. The shower was the only downside, which was limited in hot water. Weather variable, but it's winter , what else to say
Date of stay: July 2022
Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are quieter than the ground floor.

Ideal accommodation for a couple or for a family group. We have stayed before with a 5 year old grandchild, but this time just the two of us. The room was spacious and well appointed, spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and lovely bed linen. Everything we need for a perfectly comfortable stay. Would recommend without reservation.

Had a great time in New Plymouth, motel was clean and tidy, room was lovely, comfy beds and everything we needed. Great location - not in town centre so wasn’t too loud, but still close to everything, has free wifi which kept our son happy. Will definitely stay here on our next visit.
