We booked to stay here for a week after a house fire . This lovely couple couldn't have been more helpful to us. Their place was our home and now we have to go back because our place is still unliveable. I rung them and in an instant they are helping us out again. I highly recommend this lovely place... More

very comfortable and quiet as the unit was at the rear of the complex. Friendly and helpful hosts. Shared unit with brother and sister--and there was plenty of room in the 2 bedroom unit. As we don't have Sky TV at home very much enjoyed watching some of the Olympics as they happened

I had an unexpected stay in New Plymouth and was very lucky to find the Flamingo Motel because not only was the room ultra comfortable, warm and spotlessly clean, the hosts, were really friendly, helpful and caring. They accommodated me despite me being unsure of how long my stay would be, which was fantastic and meant I had one less... More

The motel itself looks old-fashioned. Neon sigh in the night is slightly dark so possible you miss the sign. But The room we stayed was so comfortable and seems to be renewed. No smell, nicely clean and tidy. No charge for tiny dog and the owner is also dog-friendly guy. The owner recommended to use a indoor warm pool but... More

We stayed one night at the Flamingo Motel. The staff were very accommodating to myself and my family, the children remained entertained by the variety of amenities provided. Definitely recommend this motel to everyone travelling through New Plymouth.

We stayed here over Easter for 4 nights. We chose it because it had quite a high rating and some of the great reviews.
