Reviewed 17 August 2014

We had a couple of very pleasant nights at this Motor Lodge. The location was perfect, the units and facilities were great (the renovations done tastefully) and we were spoiled for choice with all the sky channels. Apart from it looking appealing on the website, the fact it offered free wifi was the final decider for us and definitely a bonus.

Room Tip: Our unit was one of the ones out the front of a very busy road but you couldn't hear any road no...

A very enjoyable week at this motel. We stayed for a week to attend a family event at short notice from Perth
The owners went out of their way to accommodate us to ensure we were comfortable and happy, even though we arrived quite late. They were very helpful and pleasant when we needed assistance.
The unit was beautifully renovated and far exceeded my expectations. The unlimited WIFI was AWESOME. Great bonus.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay again

Great location, close to all amenities but far enough away to escape the busy streets. the units have been very well renovated and are equipped with all the necessities, including my sky which is a great bonus. would definitely stay again but service upon checkout was a little indifferent. It's always nice to be asked how your stay was even if it was just 1 night.

I stayed at this place in june and chose it for its good location not only for the business I had to do but also, because it was close to the walkway to go for a run in the evening. The Wifi was the fastest I have ever had in any motel and was also unlimited and no problems connecting to. I had booked a queen studio but got upgraded to a superking room which had a mySky decoder in it, which is great if you are used to mySky at home. Will be coming back here again on my next trip to New Plymouth in a month. Owners were very friendly and helpful.

This accommodation was excellent for the two of us while staying for three nights. We had studio 9 which was at the rear and very quiet. Free wifi was excellent and. Enabled some work to be done when the weather forced us of the golf course. Yes we would return. Thanks again Paul.

It is a great place to stay. We were late getting to town on our first night which had stressed me out, but the managers were great about it when I managed to call them (they had left me messages but my phone had died). Very handy to town and close to supermarkets etc which is great as you have to option to cook with kitchenette facilities. Great to have a nice big bed too (especially when you are used to a king size at home).

I was happy with this place initially. Reception staff were friendly. The room was recently renovated and had a high ceiling. The kitchenette was good. I was quite happy to see a recycling bin next to the garbage bin.

Unfortunately, the day before my early departure my room was serviced and my towels were removed but not replaced. I didn't notice this until getting out of the shower at 5:30am (reception was closed). I would have loved to have been able to give a better rating, but this lack of attention to basic details that led to an unfortunate experience I don't plan on having again left a bad taste in my mouth.

Thankyou for taking the time to write a review, we are very sorry that you only felt you could give a rating of 2 out of 5 following a mishap of no bath towels. Our staff work extremely hard to ensure they do their job to the best of their ability. No towel is a real pain, but we are glad that you found so many other positives about your stay!
