Good location, handy to town. Clean room and Friendly owner. Reception smelt of cigarettes which is off putting. Room smelt musty, needed updating and was cold. I expected more for the price. Disappointed.

Stayed here for two days and it had everything thing we needed. Walking distance to the town, with shops and restaurants / bars. It also has parking outside the apartment and laundry facilities near the reception. You can also pay extra for breakfast in the morning...they even give you different options for your choice of breakfast for different prices! Definitely...

The rooms were very spacious and clean, with kitchenettes . It was a short drive to the shopping mall. We are especially thankful to the hosts who have let us use their grill and picnic area- this was our 2nd night in New Zealand and was the most pleasant one. We have arranged our own dinner and had a great...

The beds were rather springy and not that comfortable. The room was tired and could do with an update but was clean. There was adequate parking and no noise so overall it was acceptable for the price.

I found this place through a visit to the I Site in town. Because I wanted to be able to walk into town and not to spend too much money, the Carrington was perfect. When I saw the place I decided to stay two nights. The place is clean and spacious.

A clean and well-equipped motel which had everything we needed for a one night stay. Its 's on a fairly busy road so ask for a room at the back if this is likely to bother you. Half of the rooms are on the upper level with a challenging set of stairs to negotiate, especially if you are carrying heavy...

We stayed here as it is within walking distance of the park. As always there is always the inconsiderate yobbo or yobbes who thinks its OK to park the car outside and leave the engine running whilst they think about life. Other than that the room is a standard motel room if you like to self cater, a BBQ if...

We keep returning to this motel because of the spacious stuido units and the friendly and helpful Wendy who tries to make your stay the way you would want it to be. Yes it may be a bit noisey if people are above you in an upstairs unit but this is to be expected in an older motel and the...

We had 2 nights of uncomfortable sleep due to the very soft mattress that made us roll to the middle of the bed. The 2nd night my hubby slept in the single bed of the room and he had a better sleep. There was a family above us with children running around and it sounded like a heard of elephants...

Nice quiet location very close to city center. Parking right outside your room. Comfortable bed and good shower. Small kitchenette facilities. Free wifi. Also had a guest laundry but we did not use. Will revisit. Also liked New Plymouth as a town.
