“great time”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

Had a fantastic time here. Motel room extremely clean , great attention to detail. The service was fantastic, the owner dropped me down at my bike ride start venue ... unbelievable. Our children loved the pools. The room was a bit dated but honestly it did not matter as it was soooo spotless and the price was great , so we would highly recommend it. The owners make you feel like you are life long friends and we are looking forward to returning next year!

My partner & I stayed here the weekend 8/9 March 2014. The hospitality that we received was outstanding and a very delightful place to stay!
Upon arrival we were also given complimentary wine & beer...what a plus

Can only recommend this place. Staff are warm and very friendly and go the extra mile to make their visitors welcome. Upon arrival we got a vino and beer as welcome drink.
While the décor a bit retro all is spotless. 2hrs free WIFI is a bonus aswell.
I can only recommend this place and we certainly will stay there again

Stayed here one night, clean and comfortable and the hosts where very welcoming. 2 hours free wifi was very handy and unexpected. The only drawback was our unit was right by the road so we didn't use the balony because of the traffic noise, with the door shut it was nice and quiet though. I would recommend this place just remember to take your togs for the hot pool and outdoor pool :)

I stayed two days here when in New Plymouth a couple of weeks ago. The facilities and standard of accommodation are value for money, it's not luxurious but tariff isn't priced for that market. I found the hosts to be very helpful [My first trip to the city] I would stay there again for business or if on my own as for a romantic stay I would usually go more upmarket [e.g. spa in room]

We stayed here as a group of 31 for the last two nights of our family reunion. It was perfect for what we wanted. Our unit was downstairs at the front, and we weren't bothered by any traffic sounds.
The location was great, close to town and the waterfront walk.
The swimming pool and children's play area were well kept and in good condition. The indoor pool was fun too.
We were planning on going on excursions during one of the days, but ended up hanging out at the motel because the facilities were so family friendly and very comfortable.
Maree and Tony were great hosts and really helped make us feel very welcome.
We celebrated a very fun New Years Eve here too.

What a great location for the coastal walkway and town. The local bus even stops right outside great for non-drivers like us. Tony & Maree couldn't have made our stay better, wish all owners could be like them. Will definitely stay again.
