We stayed here one night and agree with other reviewers that the young couple managing the motels are doing an excellent job. They were friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. The unit had been refurbished and was tastefully decorated and very clean. We would definitely stay here again.

This was up there amongst the best of our accommodation experiences in New Zealand. The owners are friendly and helpful (which we have found surprisingly rare elsewhere in NZ), and judging by the way they conduct their business, obviously really care about the guest's experience. The units themselves are beautiful - modern yet warm. We really felt we could relax...

The young couple who manage this motel are doing a fantastic job of keeping it clean and comfortable for their guests! The pretty flowers lining the entrance and driveway and the high wooden ceilings of the rooms give the place a nice touch. We stayed for two nights and the location was perfect for our golf game at New Plymouth...

Lockwood Motor Inn is very well run motel. It seems to be set up mainly to cater for single night guests. We stayed for 5 nights and found a few minor things wanting. For example while there is a wardrobe with hangers for shirts, etc, there are no drawers or shelves to unpack personal items onto. So we lived out...

A Lockwood constructed motel located close to the city centre, Spacious rooms with a kitchenette. Friendly hosts and a modern and clean property. We had a pleasant stay and were able to plan our days activities around the information available at the motel and found it was easy access to the coastal walk and the township of New Plymouth. Loved...

We stayed in the studio unit for 3 nights, while we were at a conference in New Plymouth. We found this Motel, to be of a very high standard. It was clean, warm and had plenty of room. Would recommend this unit to any future people wishing to find accommodation in New Plymouth.

After grumbling for years about expensive hotels who try to charge an arm and a leg for Internet Access what a pleasure to find some young owners who are part of the 21st Century!! Not just "Do you need internet?" but "How many devices do you need access for?"!!!! Into the bargain the place was spotless, clean, comfortable with even...

Visiting most major centres in Australia and New Zealand at least twice a year every year for the past twenty years, on business, adds up to a lot of motel/hotel nights. Lockwood Manor is one of a handful that I look forward to revisiting each time since I found it a few years ago It is always clean, comfortable and...

Unit was clean and had everything we wanted. Quiet and comfortable. Mum and I were there for six days and the unit was wonderfully serviced. The laundry facilities were clean with new whitewear. We will definately be back. Hosts were helpful and went the extra mile. Loved the cat.
