Great location for an event at the Bowl of Brooklands. Quiet even by a roadside, and close proximity to the CBD. Very happy with the stay and would recommend :-)

Close and easy walk to bowl of Brooklands. A bit dated and no aircon but good price reflects this

8/10 Very good

Great value for money and plenty of space for a family of four. Staff super friendly and helpful. Great location. A little bit tired, could use a bed upgrade and bathroom and kitchen upgrade, but fine for a one night stop over.

A great choice
We went to New Plymouth for our Easter break as we hadn’t been there before - it was great location - friendly helpful staff and we were able to take our dog which was wonderful ! Clean and comfortable but basic motel - we would definitely use again ! And it had an electric blanket !
