“Awesome place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

It was a last minute booking to visit Taranaki and arrived to find Kelly-Anne on reception and David mowing the lawns.
Both are very proud of their property and it shows in the attention to those small details.
Very helpful with suggestions of where to eat,things to do and offered Free Wifi without asking :) nothing was too much trouble.
The rooms are very modern, cosy and clean and the staff are friendly....What more could you want?

Would recommend Lockwood Manor to anyone.

Last minute booking, got there late and was welcomed by a large cat doubling as the security guard at reception. Pleasant service, free Internet offered without being asked. Room was very modern and spotless. Everything there I needed. Only issue was heat pump didn't seem powerful enough for room. Cooked breakfast served on time the next morning.

It is one of the best hotel that we have ever had in New Zealand. The room is very clean and warm, we are happy about everything of this motel, and very high quality service too. We had a bit worry about the noise before we get there, but it wasn't a problem at all, the location is handy to the shopping mall and city center. Highly recommend to anyone .

Warm luxurious room. Aircon is unobtrusive yet very effective. Everything quality and to a high standard. Really enjoyed the stay. Loved New Plymouth as a destination too. Would recommend Lockwood Manor to anyone.

From beginning to end it is a great experience to stay with Mary-Anne & David at Lockwood Manor. The reception is exceptional with a big smile, a free drink, free newspaper, free milk. I have stayed here before and will again. What makes it stand out? Well, it is well priced. It is well located handy to shopping and food. It is easy to find and quiet even though close to a busy road. Good safe parking. I had a queen studio which was immaculate, roomy, warm with aircon. and underfloor heating. Great kitchen with a couple of biscuits in the tea/coffee rack (always a nice touch), table & chairs, desk, flat screen TV with sky. Electric blanket on a very comfy bed. The Lockwood structure is warm and welcoming. Well done you two. You deserve the certificate of excellence award you have from Tripadviser. Cobb & Co is a 2 minute walk but be careful with what you order here. See my review.

Room Tip: They are all great.

One of the best motel experiences we've had in a long time! Fabulous hosts, the property is immaculate and rooms spacious with every detail thought of to ensure a great stay. Noise was not an issue on SH3, infact location was perfect. Thank you!
