Spacious and comfortable

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Oct 2022
Room was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and accommodating and our pet dog was made very welcome. It was nice and quiet - the next unit had a new baby staying but we didn't hear a thing. Great value for money.

Good location, Tony was very helpful and the price is right for the dated rooms. Even though the motel is on a busy road, the rooms were relatively quiet and we didn't hear much traffic noise. Would stay here again.

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.

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.
