Very ordinary and not very nice at all except for quietness and bush around. There was no oven to cook with - only cook top and not very welcoming manager. However I know it must be difficult for him when the accommodation isn't great and he is trying to make a living.

Older motel but clean, value for money, quiet and comfortable. Wifi is free but limited. We stayed in 2 bedroom apartment. Beds comfortable and room spacious. Laundry on site. Walk down to stream is lovely. Heaters warm it up but not sure how well they would do in mid winter. Parking can be a bit tight but I didn't find...

Stayed here in advice of friends in New Plymouth. Quiet, older, roomy, clean, and one can tell the owners take pride in their motel. Parking was tight but who cares! Room more then made up for that, as well as the setting. I'll stay here again the next time I'm in kiwiland. -Brian, Ormond Bch, Fl USA

This hotel was a bit difficult to find. It's located at the end of small quiet road. The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable and full of amenities even though a liitle old. Staffs were friendly and helpful.

Stayed one night while in New Plymouth for a funeral. The motel is older but has very clean and comfortable beds. Is in a quiet location. All you need when just wanting somewhere to put your head down for the night. Water was extremely hot. Would stay again if looking for somewhere cheap and cheerful. The fact that it was...

We stayed three nights here. This is an older style hotel. We had a suite in the main building next to the reception. We had one spacious bedroom with a double and a single bed. There was a spacious kitchen with a fridge, microwave, oven with stove top, kettle, cutlery, etc. There wasn't a bath tub, but there is a...

We stayed three nights in this motel. It is an older style but very clean and comfortable and in a very quiet area adjacent to the Te Henui walkway . Our unit was very spacious and loved having a separate bedroom. The kitchenette was reasonable equipped but the addition of a chopping board would be welcome. We would stay there...

Stayed 4 nights to go to the rugby and have a look at New Plymouth, While this motel is far from new, care is taken for it to be as clean as possible and rooms are serviced daily. The separate bedroom had a comfortable bed, electric blanket and its own heater. Pillows and bedding were more than adequate. The kitchen...

We have just spent 2 nights at the Timandra and found it spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. Probably the best shower in any motel we have stayed in. Handy to everything we needed. Will be back. We had a one bedroom unit and it was very spacious.
