We are a group of 4 ladies in their 60 who traveled down from Auckland for the Flower Festival. This was a perfect place for our stay. We all had our own comfortable beds. It was very quiet, convenient, and clean. We had everything that we needed for our 4 days

Have always opted to stay at Hotels over Motels with business overnight stays but stayed at Pukekura Motor Lodge and it was Bliss, was greeted on arrival and the room were modern and clean. Fi and Ian were very welcoming, friendly and offered a lot of great advice on places to dine and visit. Will definitely stay again.

This was a very pleasant stay in one of the two bedroom units. The owners were great and had aired the room and turned on the heating before we arrived so it was very welcoming. The Unit was absolutely spotless, beds really comfortable, it was quiet and there was everything provided for a very comfortable stay even down to good...

After a long day's travelling, this was a welcome stop. The owners were welcoming and friendly and showed us to our unit which was upstairs. A good sized room with comfy king-sized bed and a great shower. Our room was set back off the road and was warm and very quiet. Will recommend Pukekura Motor Lodge to anyone who wants...

We stayed at the motel for 5 nights and our room was wonderful. The room was clean and modern. Set in a fairly quiet location and close to Pukekura park. A close drive to downtown New Plymouth. We would definitely recommend staying here.

I recently stayed for 2 nights with my kids (1yr old & 2yr old) and the 1 bedroom room we booked was perfect. The boys both slept in portacots (supplied by the motel owners for a minimal $10 charge) in the bedroom, and there was plenty of space in the lounge area even with the bed in there. It was...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom Family Unit. Very clean modern, with a well equipped kitchen. Even though the centrally located heat pump was enough to warm the entire unit, each bed still had electric blankets. Bathroom was huge! The family loved having TVs in the lounge and both the rooms - no fighting over what show to watch! The...

We only stayed in New Plymouth for one night, but we struck the best accommodation possible and at an affordable price. The unit was spacious, well presented and very clean. The manager was very friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back and will recommend to all our friends.

Visited for 1 night with the family and found the place to be well situated, clean, tidy, modern and run by friendly and helpful staff. The kitchen was well stocked with everything, even had a dishwasher. The apartment we stayed in was roomy and comfortable, there was beds for 5 without feeling cramped. Some of the units are wheelchair accessible....
