Positive Reviews

Central location

Travellers think the motel is great for an overnight stay. Besides being handy to central New Plymouth and other local attractions around the city centre, they also love how easy it is to get to the spectacular waterfront.

Well-priced accommodation

Judging by the reviews, guests think the room price is indicative of the overall standard throughout the property. They think the rate is reasonable and appreciate that the rooms are attended to every day and fresh towels are provided.

Great parking facilities

Not only is off-street parking free of charge at the motel, but guests also appreciate that they can park right in front of their rooms. They feel a certain sense of security knowing their vehicles are safe and love that they never haver to struggle to find a spot after being out for the day.

Negative Reviews

It's noisy

Being on a busy main road, guests say it's no wonder they end up hearing a substantial amount of traffic noise in the rooms. They also complain about some unusual but very loud plumbing sounds and noisy neighbours.

Facilities are dated

Tired and dated is how most visitors describe the motel's facilities. Guests are not impressed with the faded curtains, and say that the wobbly bathroom taps that struggle to turn off properly and basins that have seen better days. They also notice that the walls need a fresh coat of paint and that the decor is outdated.

Unsatisfactory cleanliness levels

Reports of stained carpets and dusty surfaces are often causes for concern amongst guests. They also find cigarette pots full of old butts outside their rooms and think that a little more attention can be paid to ensuring the motel gets a deep clean.
