“Comfortable and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

I stayed 3 nights at the Flamingo with my dad while we caught up with extended family in New Plymouth. The proprietors are wonderful - very helpful and friendly. We had a 1 bedroom unit which suited us perfectly. Although the decor is a little dated the beds were very comfortable and the shower had good pressure. As our stay was in early winter the heat pump warmed up our unit quickly and kept us very cosy. The kitchen was well equipped with all the usual items as well as a full oven/stove. I highly recommend staying here.

Stayed June 2014

The owners are very friendly and helpful. Great Pool and spa. Our room had a new TV. In particular we were impressed that they called us within 10 mins of leaving to say we had left a gift card behind. Will definitely stay here again soon.

Room Tip: If you have kids get one near the playground.

Wonderful hosts, very clean and tidy, just what we wanted for our two night stay. Upgraded to access unit for mobility impaired mum was a welcome bonus. Will definately stay here again if in New Plymouth.

We have just returned home after almost two weeks at the Flamingo while we had business in New Plymouth. The unit was spotless and very comfortable but the biggest asset of this place is the attitude of the owners and their staff. We were made to feel very welcome, nothing was a bother and every day they asked if there was anything else they could do to make our stay better. We will definitely return.

We have just got back from 3 nights at the Flamingo Motel. We have stayed at numerous motels during our trips to NZ but none have been as comfortable or as welcoming as this one. From the moment we arrived till we left we were made to feel like family and everywhere was as clean and tidy as it was possible to be . It isnot the Ritz or Hilton or any five star.palace but is the nicest motel you could wish for.

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
