The reception staff were VERY welcoming, but unsure whether the excellent swimming pool was 8 metres or 10, so.my OCD-fed 126 laps were either 1260 metres or nearly 1000 :o) The restaurant was okay, the wine nice (In NZ? Really) The room was fine, so everything quite good and more than acceptable, with reception excellent. We stayed two nights and...

Modern decor , fine dining, a well stocked bar, off road parking and friendly staff made for a good experience. This hotel is owned and run by a well known New Plymouth family who are very experienced in the hotel and catering business.

Stayed for two nights and it was a nice room, comfy bed and decent bathroom which could probably do with a little upgrading. Wifi worked very well. It was annoying though, having put the do not disturb sign on the door, to return later in the day to discover someone had been in and made the bed. It was also...

Just a short stay, but room was clean and nice, wifi was really good, and had a decent amount of TV stations that were important to us to follow US election at the time. Nice coffee bar with small fridge, and water was really HOT...thought it may have to do with the geothermal area that we were staying in. Beach...

The kitchen was slick with everything you needed (dishwasher, oven, microwave, fridge with ice box) but the stand out feature was the granite breakfast bar with bar stools. Genius. We ate at the restaurant every night and the kids couldn't keep away from the steak egg and chips (with choice...

Arrived late after long drive, staff were very helpful and arranged a snack even though kitchen was closed. Whilst venue has a few years on it, never the less was very neat and tidy and well kept. Price was reasonable for the locale.

Classic 1970s look and feel which is a nice sort of retro. However room needed a makeover with loose wallpaper and chipped tiles. Some investment from the owners please! Breakfast okay but one waiter only made for delays.

We were staying here as part of a large group for two nights. The room was upstairs and was a good size, with a queen sized bed, a single bed, two chairs and a coffee table. There was a small 'kitchenette' area with a fridge and microwave. There was a limited amount of cutlery, cups etc. It was great for...

My daughter booked a room for two nights with her 2 sons. Auto Lodge added an extra bed so I could spend the night also. Well equipped kitchen. Clean tidy unit. Lovely indoor swimming pool. Easy to find. Plenty of parking available.
