Lockwood Manor is a great place to stay in New Plymouth. The location is convenient and within easy walking distance to the city and the waterfront. The unit was very comfortable with a great shower. We really liked the Lockwood style - very homely and enjoyable. When we come back to New Plymouth we will certainly be looking to stay... More

Everything about this place is just right. Location, comfort, price, even a good strong shower with plenty of hot water. Can't think of any way this motel could be improved. We would definitely choose this wonderful place for any future visits to the area.

Great location. Handy to eating places. Spotless and modern. Lots of good books in rooms to tell you where you might need to go, and what you would want to see. Friendly owners. Would highly recommend this place for people to stay. 50 Sky Channels as well.

Great handy location, spotless modern rooms. Parking right outside each unit. Very fair prices for snacks. Cooked breakfast available. Soaps and refreshments replaced each day when room serviced. The bed was just wonderful....the whole unit, the whole motel gets a 10 out of 10 from us

We picked this motel off the internet which means you never know for sure what you end up getting. This pick was a pleasant surprise. Good location, nice facilities and close to restaurants and shopping. A/C was included, which is not always the case in New Zealand.

Our room was immaculately clean. The kitchen was very clean and tidy. The furnishings were nicely set up and comfortable. I love the rustic appeal of Lockwood with its bare wood walls. Located about 2-3 blocks from the town centre, just off the main highway, but not too noisy. A few little difficulties: the entrance (on a side street) was... More

Wonderfully clean, well appointed, modern and spacious motel located close to CBD. Restaurant across the road, other amenities handy. Friendly hosts. Motel offers bikes for patrons use if desired. If you are sensitive to noise, you may want ear plugs as a bit of traffic noise but certainly not a major problem. Quiet air conditioner.Would definitely go back to this... More

Lockwood Manor Motel was our base for a weekend in New Plymouth. What a great decision to stay here as it was so clean and tidy and within walking distance of the CBD.

One of the best motels we have stayed in. Clean, comfortable, friendly and quiet. Well furnished rooms. Parking easy. Just on the edge of town but only a few minutes walk or drive from all facilities. Unlimited free wifi and tv with 50+ channels.
