We stayed in the double room unit and it was great. Clean facilities and plenty of linen for us all. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the many amenities on offer including indoor and outdoor pools. This is a large motel with lots of units. We booked during a weekend where there were various events in the area so the motel was very full. The parking is a little bit tight and regrettably while we were out, someone took it upon themselves to park outide our room which meant we had to park elsewhere and walk to our room. Nothing the motel could have done really as there is ample parking available, just inconsiderate guests in other rooms. My only real gripe is the fact that there is a garden/ island in the middle of the driveway that diverts incoming and outgoing traffic (enter to the left, exit straight). It makes complete sense and I understand its purpose, however someone had parked poorly in the 1st available space on the entrance side of the dividing garden which blocked access to the road and forced other motorists (including us) to enter in the exit lane. Again not a deal breaker but could have been a nuisance had someone been trying to come out. Aside from parking issues (caused by guests NOT the motel or staff) everything was exceptional. Would 100% stay again.

Complex as a whole looks tired. Parking is an issue with tradie vans and utes.

We loved the location, for what we were in New Plymouth for. We love being upstairs and at the back and while the decor was dated it was extremely clean and tidy. I will not hesitate to return and look forward to it.
