About Carrington

Located just outside the CBD, a short four-minute drive from the waterfront and New Plymouth's iconic Wind Wand kinetic sculpture, Carrington offers traditional motel accommodation.

Rooms range in size from small singles to family rooms that can accommodate five guests. Standard amenities include flat-screen TVs with cable channels, free Wi-Fi, and private bathrooms. Small kitchenettes allow for the preparation of simple meals.

A lovely garden with seating allows guests to make the best of the good weather. Ample parking near guest units and laundry facilities are both located on site.

Those looking for off-site dining are best served by heading into town, roughly one kilometre down the road. There they'll find the Social Kitchen, a trendy spot known for its cocktails as much as its food, and Chaos, a cafe with delectable treats.

Carrington guests are roughly a kilometre from both the Brooklands Zoo and TSB Stadium. Additionally, New Plymouth Airport is a 15-minute drive away.

Positive Reviews

Decent location

The reviews show guests are quite pleased with the location of this motel. They find that it is in a relatively quiet spot, but still close enough to town so that amenities and attractions are not difficult to reach. It is also reportedly quite easy to find.

Clean, spacious and comfortable rooms

Guest invariably note in their reviews that the rooms here are spotlessly clean on arrival, and that they are kept neat and tidy throughout the stay. In addition, they remark that they have more than enough space for all members of their party and find the rooms to be comfortable overall.

Wonderful hosts

Travellers seem to have only positive things to say about the hosts at this motel. Reviews suggest the property's owners run a tight ship, yet are also very friendly and approachable. This seems to make visitors feel welcome and at ease.

Negative Reviews

Rooms a bit dated

Reviewers for whom aesthetics is an important consideration immediately notice that the rooms look both a little basic, in the sense that they don't feature much decoration, and very dated. These guests would be happy if the rooms were spruced up and made to appear a bit more modern.

Noise issues

Guests looking to simply grab a bit of shut-eye report that this can be a challenge at times. Soundproofing measures are said to be ineffective, with guests noting they can easily hear their neighbours, as well as stomping from the rooms above.
