            New Year in New Plymouth”

            The Auto Lodge was in a excellent location, not central but easy walk in to the CBD and to the gardens. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice. The reception staff on arrival and check out were very pleasant and helpful. The room was a little dated and not air-conditioned but was perfectly serviceable. The cleaning team did seem harassed and we decided not to have our room made up as they seem so anxious to be away. The main queen bed was very soft and bouncy and not to our taste, when one person moved the other person felt that they were on a boat or waterbed. On our last night we had some very noisey neighbours and the reception staff were not responsive to our request to intervene and ask them to keep the noise down and to investigate the angry voices we heard between the noise makers and other residents. We would stay there again but really can't see us going to New Plymouth again.

            It had heated indoor pool, and spa. The room was roomy and can fit 3 adults easily, ground coffee & plunger was provided, it had comfortable feather pillows, and being on 1st floor, we had good view of all the hotel, and can watch patrons taking their dogs for a walk. There was plum tree next to restaurant which was dropping lovely sweet and juicy plums on the ground, great to eat while fresh. The stay has left great impression of New Plymouth.

            I was there for 2 nights for my kids inline hockey tournament which was only 2 mins drive from the hotel. But the reason why i booked this place was because of the indoor heated pool and spa. The first night we went 8:30 to the pool and it was cold. sat in the spa and nothing was working in it and the water was cold. was very disappointed with that. But lovely staff

The staff were friendly and helpful, the central location is handy, and the facilities - especially the pool and spa which our kids LOVED - make this the most value for money option for accommodation.

            The location has been excellent for the purpose of the stay. I realized too late that I could have asked for a microwave and toaster but we made due. The only real negative comment I have is, no recycling opportunities available! Everything has to go into the rubbish! I didn't like this at all and decided to take my recycling home. Otherwise, I enjoyed my stay.

            The Restaurant, The Location, The Staff

            We booked a standard room, unaware this did not include air conditioning. The staff moved us which was fine but before we moved we had had food and the plate had food residue on it and the plugs behind the tv were dangerous as they were loose from the wall. The second room well there was an air conditioning unit but it didn't seem to work, it was more like a fan moving warm air around the room. Also the toilet has faeces on the outside of the bowl from the previous guests. But in saying that the room was less noisy where it was situated.

            Great location, walking distance to town, The reception and Restaurant/bar and staff were outstanding, The was room was very clean, However..... I mean no disrespect when I say this but the standard room we booked felt like I had stepped back in time, the decor and furnishings were very tired and dated. For example, The bed felt like it was from the 1970's, The blinds needed replacing, wallpaper coming off the walls, no air conditioning. We came home feeling abit disappointed and very tired from an uncomfortable nights sleep.
