Upon first glance of both the exterior of the hotel and the first glance of the rooms I felt like I had gone to the 70's. Wow was I surprised, the service was impeccable and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on while I holidayed in New Zealand. Great location as well. Highly recommend.

On arrival at Flamingo Motel we were made to feel so welcome. Maree actually introduced herself which doesn't happen very often.
The unit we stayed in was spotless and the bed very comfy after a long day.
The heated pool was so relaxing.

Pity the weather wasn't in our favour.

Would highly recommend Flamingo Motel to stay in if visiting New Plymouth.

Hope you enjoyed the feijoas.

We stayed for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom unit. We loved it. It's an older motel but extremely clean and very comfortable for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. We had a warm and friendly welcome when we arrived and it was no trouble to change rooms from the front to the back of the motel. We enjoyed the indoor heated pool and we were provided with pool towels to use - at no charge, which was fantastic. Overall I would recommend this motel to anyone. We will definitely stay here again!

my fiancé and I stayed at Flamingo Motel over the Easter weekend for 2 nights. We absolutely loved it! We've received an incredibly warm welcome from the owner/manager Toni, who has been very kind and helpful during our stay. The facilities are well maintained and well looked after - the rooms are well equipped and very tidy, fresh and clean linen and towels, spotless clean kitchen with very clean cutlery, glasses and kitchenware. Awesome pools - spacious heated pool inside and another pool outside. big thumbs up! great value for money also. We'll definitely be back, the best motel we've ever stayed at in New Zealand.

We had a group of 40 older people on a tour of Taranaki.
We chose Flamingo for our New Plymouth stop.
From the first phone call till we left, Tony Maree
and Kerry made the whole stay
a breeze and couldn't be more helpful.
We used the games room for a barbeque dinner,
and again they helped to make the evening a great success.
Rooms are fine.
Thanks for a great stay.
Would really recommend it for a group.
But if we went as a couple would definitely choose Flamingo to stay.
