We stayed here last night - what a beautiful motel! Good value, spacious room, beaut TV, AC etc, spunky decor, real handy - easy walkable to restaurants, cafés, bars, shops, and the best shower I've ever tried!

All round excellence. Great location - close to main shopping area / CBD, coastal walk & Puke Ariki.
Modern spacious well appointed spotlessly clean quite units with very comfortable beds. We had Unit 16 which was upstairs with a sea view. Friendly helpful hosts / owners - told us about "Fresha" an excellent cafe / delicatessen nearby. Suggest you book well ahead as was fully booked for the 3 nights we stayed.

All very nice.
Lovely modern room with every comfort.
Owner was lovely & apologised in advance for Wi-Fi problems which were no worse than many places.
Everything worked & we walked home safely from our town centre restaurant.

This motel as a great find and not what we were expecting. A lovely greeting from our host who recommended the evening concert in the park which was great. The room was clean, spacious and had the fluffiest towels! Great bath with power shower over, choice of milk for the fridge and lovely big bed. The bikes were a great touch the next morning too.
Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Traffic noise can't be avoided unfortunately

As a regular traveller to New Plymouth, I always stay at the Dawson.
Great sized rooms, quiet location, great decor and real home from home.

Bathrooms are a great quality and with heat pumps in every room and decent sized TV, it's all the busy traveller needs.

Hosts are always happy to help, and make you feel welcome. Nice one Barb!
