Very clean, lovely staff. Will recommend to friends and will stay here again next time in New Plymouth. easy location to town and to get to the walkway along the beautiful beach front. The staff was excellent to deal with even tho we had a hiccup with payment which was not there fault. Happy and helpful staff. A+++

Our room was immaculately clean. The kitchen was very clean and tidy. The furnishings were nicely set up and comfortable. I love the rustic appeal of Lockwood with its bare wood walls. Located about 2-3 blocks from the town centre, just off the main highway, but not too noisy. A few little difficulties: the entrance (on a side street) was...

Wonderfully clean, well appointed, modern and spacious motel located close to CBD. Restaurant across the road, other amenities handy. Friendly hosts. Motel offers bikes for patrons use if desired. If you are sensitive to noise, you may want ear plugs as a bit of traffic noise but certainly not a major problem. Quiet air conditioner.Would definitely go back to this...

Lockwood Manor Motel was our base for a weekend in New Plymouth. What a great decision to stay here as it was so clean and tidy and within walking distance of the CBD. The unit was spotlessly clean and warm. Everything we needed was in the unit and the owners were very welcoming and obliging. Lockwood Manor is easy to...

One of the best motels we have stayed in. Clean, comfortable, friendly and quiet. Well furnished rooms. Parking easy. Just on the edge of town but only a few minutes walk or drive from all facilities. Unlimited free wifi and tv with 50+ channels.

We stayed three nights in this motel and was very pleased with our choice. It was handy to everything we wanted to do, the owners were very pleasant and couldn't be more helpful. If we return to New Plymouth some time in the future, we would choose this motel again.

Very clean, spacious & well thought out. Warm - (not sure if underfloor heating in the tiled area? ) Very quiet, despite being on a corner road site. Lovely bathroom freebies. Water pressure is high. Easy walk to Countdown or into Devon St where the restaurants are located. Only minor recommendation would be to have a mirror in the main...

Lockwood manor was a lovely stay in New Plymouth. I think we were the only couple staying at the time. Check in was easy, parking was just outside of the room and it had a decent kitchen so we could cook our own dinner. Stayed one night there and would definitely come back. Great accomodation for singles, couples or families.

We booked this motel on the basis of TR reports and ratings and we were not disappointed. The room was very comfortable and quiet and the service was excellent. The lockwood timber and high ceilings made for a very pleasant change..

I wish we could have stayed for 3-4 nights instead of one. I booked the hotel due to the picture of the lovely wood interior. It exceeded expectations. So clean even the utensil in the drawers were lined up in rows. The bed was so very comfortable and the owners were very personable. We walked to dinner in the CBD....
