              Very good small country city motel situation. Next time I'm in New Plymouth, I know where I'm staying. The room was beyond spacious, comfortable in every aspect. Not miserly with tea and coffee issues. A fully functional kitchenette. Laundry on the premises. Large screen T.V., not the sort of poky token gesture I normally get met by. More features than I have time to mention, along with a fully cooked breakfast delivered to your room, and all delivered with service standard rarely met with.

              We had a great short stay in this motel. We booked 2 rooms and they are both very spacious and well equipped cooking facility. The best thing, aside from the very kind owners who patiently waited for us even though it was a really really late check-in (we did not expect that traffic was really heavy going out of wellington) , was their heated bed. It was really great to sleep in after spending long hours out in the cold. Thank you Shelley and family.

              The rooms are a little dated but provides value for money and the new owners are great to deal with. The sky tv wasn't set up yet probably due to new takeover date being the day before we arrived but its obvious the new owners care a lot more about their clients than the ones before them!! Would happily stay again
