We had booked a King Studio Online through Agoda.com. Nice clean rooms. Kitchenette facility available. Heat pump in rooms is good and handy. Now some issues which we would like to point out; Need some more lighting in rooms as the LED bulbs dont cover the entire room especially where we had our dining table. Now we had booked online...

Hello and thankyou for your feedback. Firstly, there is adequate lighting which has been assessed by Qualmark whom we are members of. There is a desk lamp on the dining table. We are most sorry that you feel mistreated, we were only trying to give you the best rate possible that you seemed so very determined to get. We enjoy...

Really nice place to stay, not overpriced. We booked last minute and enjoyed the room and facilities which were all top notch. Up to date amenities are something I always look for in a room. Had all sky channels which I haven't seen in a motel/hotel before

So many rooms have very little space to spread office work and laptops etc. when on the road. A decent table, comfortable room and good privacy, combined with excellent cooking facilities make this a place to stay again. Friendly people... and reasonably priced too compared to others.

We only stayed one night in a queen unit but it was very comfortable. We were up the back in unit 12 so it was quiet and away from the main road. Good kitchen and bathroom facilities. It looked like the unit had recently had a makeover and was very clean. A short walk to town and supermarkets.

Didn't plan on being there much - just to sleep - so opted for one of the 'cosy' rooms, which was marketed as small but cheap. It was perfect - cheap, clean, good location, and the room was even very small!

Great venue for our purposes. We were a group of 12. Four had the 3 bedroom unit where we all gathered each day. This was spacious with a full kitchen, including a dishwasher. We had a studio unit.

Room was clean and ready for use when we first entered. It had all appliances needed to save money from dining out every night. Loved that staff recognised the times we were out and used that time to have our rooms cleaned and ready by the time we were back.

We originally came down to New Plymouth to camp, but due to the weather we were unable to do so and therefore looked for somewhere to stay that was great value for money, and this was definitely it.

Motel was very very clean, bed was comfortable and very well equiped right down to motel booklet with everything you may need including doctors. Very quite considering the main road. Spa was amazing and nothing seemed too much for the owners. Would highly recommend. Best Motel yet.
