“NOT THE NICEST OF PLACES TO STAY”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2011

Very old and dated motel, no hair dryer, only 3 sets of everything (cutlery) yes we stayed as 3 people but some people might use more then 1 spoon in 2 days don't you think. Tried to have a cup of tea in the moring, horrible taste I think even budget tea tastes better. Everything was very budget and old. The hosts were a nice old couple but we saw some people pulling up chatting to some friends that were staying in the same motel & the friends of the people were growled off by the owner for parking at the front of the motel. Seemed a bit mean and unprofessional and I doubt of the front road of the motel is your property if someone wants to pull over and have a chat then that shouldn't be of your consern. Also had a few long black hairs floating on the edges of the bathroom sink yuck, and please deodorise your closets as they smelt of old musky body odour.

I stayed with my partner here for 3 days and we really enjoyed our time here. We booked a large studio and it was very clean, in good shape and we even had a balcony. The studio consisted of a fully equiped kitchen, one queen bed that was very comfy and an extra single bed that we did only use to place our staff on it:-). The carpet in our room was one of the cleanest we have ever seen compared to other Motels and was probably quite new.

After travelling over 6 months around the world and staying in hundred of different places, we must say that the hospitality here was outstanding! Fi and Ian were helping us whenever we needed some information, help in transportion and were always there for a little chat!

The Motel is approx. 2 kilometers away from the town center but with a car it is only a couple of minutes to get there. There is a wonderful park just around the corner which we definitely recommend to have a walk at. The Motel is also a good place to stay when you plan to climb Mount Taranaki/Egmont in one day.

We just spent several days in New Plymouth at the Coronation Court Motel for the college sports championships for the Lower North Island, New Zealand.

It isn't a 5-start hotel but the reasonable rates reflect that. Coronation Court hosts Ian and Fi have done a wonderful job providing clean, comfortable and quiet accomodation. They are nice people too.

Since taking over management of the motel in early 2008 Ian and Fi have been upgrading the rooms. Our's was just right with plenty of room for our party of five. Everything in the room worked i.e. no broken furniture, leaky faucets, burned out light bulbs etc and there was no noise from the adjoining rooms (even though we had a soccer team on one side and a rugby team on the other). Rooms were clean and tidy and beds were very comfortable. Dial-up internet access worked fine and was surprisingly cheap.

The location, while not on the beach is actually very good. The motel is one minute walk to the Pukekura Racecourse (horse racing) and just beyond that is Brooklands Park and the TSB Arena where the Taranaki National Basketball Team plays.

We'll not hesitate to stay at the Coronation Court next time we are in New Plymouth. Well done Ian and FI!

  • Liked — Clean/comfortable/quiet - Mostly though, knew the hosts were very eager to please
  • Disliked — Nothing really. It isn't a 5-star hotel but not paying for that either.

I live in a double room. Facilities are ok. The room is quite small. They welcome those who belong pets which I do not prefer that.

The location is a little far from the city center. There are sevaral motel nearer. Since I travel by car, there is a little problem with this subject. The coronation street is one of the main street heading to a city center.
