Good mid range motel

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 Mar 2023via mobile
Great central motel. Very approachable owners, who provided excellent local information. The courtesy cycles were very adequate and made the stay very affordable and great value. Would stay again - but in the units away from the main road
Date of stay: March 2023
Room Tip: Get a unit off Lemon St. Use the motel website and phone before arrival

A lovely, clean, tidy and modern place to stay. On a main road but unit was pretty quiet. Good quality bed and bedding, decent pillows and towels. Excellent value for money. Very helpful at reception and good laundry. Will stay again and recommend.

We stayed here for just one night, but I must say, that it was a good place to stay. Only 10 minutes walk from the down centre. It is close to the main road, so easy to get there, of course it means there is a bit of traffic noise. But rooms are good and clean. Kitchen is well equipped. Value was good.

This motel is a very tidy place to stay, with a good range of facilities. The hosts are very helpful, the rooms are impeccable, the internet very fast, and close to the city centre. It is also adjacent to the amazing Te Henui walkway.

Our two night stay at 16 Northgate Motel provided us with easy access to some fantastic sightseeing opportunities such as Taranaki National Park, Pukekura Park and the Coastal walkway. The motel is well situated at the northen end of New Plymouth and while the room is rather dated and small, it had been freshly painted and was clean and had everything needed for self catering.

Hi John,

Thanks for the review and for the positive comments.
Actually all the window joinery is 2 years old and is the latest double glazed and laminated for extra quietness and security. Toilets are just about 8 years old. Basins 8 years old , and new plush carpet just 8 months old.
See you again.
Paul
