Beautiful modern and clean motel, great bathroom with a large tub that included jets. On arrival we were greeted by one of the lovely owners and provided with guidance about the WiFi and parking available, as well as a generous glass bottle of milk. The master bedroom and lounge both had TV's with Sky. We had a very pleasant stay and we will definitely be back again. Highly recommended!

Good location
We were in New Plymouth for the Americarna weekend and booked this months in advance thankfully. It was clean and tidy with a very comfortable bed. We particularly liked how close to the centre of town it is so we could walk everywhere. Would definitely stay again.
