We had a wonderful overnight stay at this Motor Lodge. The unit was clean, warm and modern. The location was convenient to town and there was parking right outside our unit, which was up the back and incredibly quiet. It was a very relaxing and comfortable place to stay and will be the first place I come to stay when... More

Thankyou for your positive and honest review of your stay. Yes, the units up the driveway are quiet...so are the lovely studios with super king beds with the double glazing. We are pleased you had a relaxing stay, just what a break away from home should be. We hope to see you again soon. More

This was my first visit to New Plymouth and I found a clean warm unit & very friendly people. I was only a 5 min walk from conference venue which made it very easy and about 20 minute walk to CBD with a super market handy also. Thank you

My daughter, baby granddaughter and I stayed two nights last weekend in New Plymouth. The weather was wild wet, windy and cold so having a lovely clean, warm, well appointed motel room with Sky TV and full kitchen facilities was perfect for us to relax. The staff were friendly and helpful on checking in.

Owners have gone to great length to ensure a good and comfortable stay.We were upgraded without asking and enjoyed a warm and cosy stay despite record storm conditions. We enjoyed the use of the spa pool each day to warm up and relax after a day out.

Well we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay... sometimes we treat guests that book directly through the motel with an upgrade when we are able to. And we are so pleased you appreciated that and the spa pool to warm up after a day out exploring. Do stay again and thankyou very much for your review. More

Easy to find, centrally located, the accomodation was clean, quiet and good value for money. Free Internet and Sky meant i could watch the second Wales v All Blacks test from my room. Happy to recommend this place and would stay again

And wasn't that a great game to watch... nothing like watching the ABs from the comfort of your room when away from home. It sounds like you had a great stay for your first time to New Plymouth. We hope to see you again and thankyou very much for your review. More

These people give outstanding service. The motel is very handy to everything and even on a main road it is very quiet. Rooms are large and very clean. We have stayed there 3 times now and would not think of going anywhere else.

Motel situated in a nice quiet location on the edge of town which is within easy walking distance. All facilities provided and a good comfortable bed. Very pleasant and welcoming reception. Will certainly return should we visit New Plymouth in the future.

We are a family of 4 with a 7-year old and a baby. We stayed at Northgate over Easter Weekend 2016. The rooms are nice, well decorated, and larger than I imagined. It is close to all the things you want to do in New Plymouth, including not far from super markets. We would stay here again.
