“Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Couldn't fault Pukekura Motor Lodge when we stayed there recently.
The complex is new which meant everything was in it's place. Our unit clean, quiet, warm with really comfortable beds. We stayed in a upstairs unit with a bath which was lovely at the end of a long day driving. They unit had a good view over the city with. Table and chairs outside that one could enjoy the evening sun.
Highly recommend this as a quiet, comfortable place to stay.

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

Such a nice place to relax on work trip. Spacious, modern and clean. I switched to this motel over a year ago for work teips. The hosts are your typical lovely kiwi couple. The service is world class and the rooms are well set out. Great cooking facilities. Love the double blinds for privacy. And really comfy beds!. I would recommend this motel to anyone seeking accomodation in New Plymouth.

A great place to stay, with modern rooms, the most comfortable beds in town, and a great option of restaurant charge backs / delivery.

Hosts are helpful, courteous and good humored!

Very much recommend!

Was upgraded to a two bedroomed apartment. Lovely surprise to be greeted with an umbrella as the heavens opened up all day - so my luggage was still dry!

Apartment was very tidy, modern décor and lovely double blinds which would keep out the sun during the day, not that I stayed when it was sunny - but also kept out the light at night.

Bed extremely comfortable and I enjoyed the many sky channels which helped me to switch off from work.

Only negative thing that I could say was I don't like soft soap to wash with - but then again it wasn't a major issue.

Room Tip: If you can ask for the rooms at the back of the Hotel - very quiet from the road noise.

We stayed here for two nights in a two bedroom apartment. The apartment was modern, well appointed and absolutely spotless. We loved the double blinds and blackout curtains in all rooms (children slept in both mornings - bonus). We found the apartment to be quiet, even with another family with small children next door, there was no noise through walls. Staff were all friendly and helpful. On checking out we accidentally left a much loved toy behind and they called us straight after we left to let us know. Was close to the Festival of Lights in Pukekura Park and an easy short drive into the city centre. We would definitely stay here again.

We needed a room with disability access provided, and they delivered. The room was a bit larger than their adjoining standard rooms, so you could actually get around inside in a wheelchair. The benches and equipment were all down low so they could be reached from the wheelchair. There was easy access to the shower and toilet. The furnishings were excellent and quite new. The house-keeping was to a very high standard. And all this came at what we thought was a quite reasonable price.
And the Festival of Lights in the nearby Pukekura Park, the reason we had detoured to New Plymouth in the first place, was a first rate show and quite wheelchair-friendly in the parts that we got to.

Stayed here for the Taranaki Around the Mountain Relay this year as part of a work trip with my partner, an excellent place to spend a few nights, well equipped, modern and comfortable. I had no room service nor am I aware of the room price but based on the features I would have no issue staying here again.
