Clean and tidy

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 7 Oct 2022
The room was basic but clean, with everything we needed for 2 adults, 2 teens and 1 kid. There is a dairy and chip shop near by. It is close to everything. The staff were lovely and helpful (including the lovely dog). We had a nice 3 night stay.

Reviewed 27 September 2022

We had a weekend stay at the motel and it was so great to be able to wake feeling refreshed after sleeping on a comfortable bed. We had a room with a kitchen and ample space for us as well as spare beds. Our towels were refreshed daily, the room was so clean and smelt fresh. Proprietors were very friendly.

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

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.
