There is an outdoor...

I really enjoyed my stay there because of the professional service and handy location, which made it much easier for us to travel sightseeing, and come back to rest and relax. The staff and boss are very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this motel to everyone.

Stayed early December with a group of people. Older motel but extremely tidy and clean. Fabulous hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. Beds were fantastic which is always a huge plus. Would recommend to anyone.

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...

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...
