Staying at the Timandra Motel in New Plymouth is very relaxing and peaceful, yet close to the City centre. I have been staying at the Timandra Motel for a few years now and find the room I stay in which is located right next door to reception is very spacious. Pete and Stu the owners, are always very helpful.

The decor at this motel is dated but the unit was large and extremely clean. Good value for the rate. Nice, quiet location. Fresh daisies in the unit was a nice touch. Free milk on check in was appreciated.

We spent only one night there, but weren't disappointed. The motel looks old, but everything is in working order. The staff is very helpful and we've been very pleased that they'd been waiting for us even though we arrived very late. The location is perfectly close to CBD.

Thank you for your review, our motel is one of the older style properties but because of this all of our units are spacious and have separate bedrooms no studios. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

This motel has a lovely leafy setting and the boys loved playing on the grass tennis court and hammocks. The rooms were very comfortable, though we found our bed to be overly soft and saggy to the middle. Make sure to visit the nearby gardens and 'bowl', which are wonderful.

Used this Motel for 2 nights based on location, reviews and price. Our rooms were clean, with few amenities, as expected, I’ve been pleased. The owner operator was very friendly and helpful.I was provided very helpful information about New Plymouth and places to visit in that area.

Booked this motel for three nights online as was close to the TSB Stadium, reasonably priced and looked clean and tidy. Upon a quite late arrival greeted by a nice pleasant man, paid for the room and were shown to our unit. Entering the unit all windows were open so it was cold inside and were hit by the overpowering...

I'm very sorry that the reviewer did not enjoy their stay. My partner checked them in, they were late arriving (hours after reception officially closed) but we made a point of ensuring they were welcomed and kept the office open for a while after in case they needed anything. We were also on site the whole of the next day...

The latter part of our holiday was spent in the New Plymouth area at the Timandra Motel. Our hosts Stu and Pete provided excellent accommodation and service. In particular, we were given good information of the best places to eat in New Plymouth as well as brochures highlighting interesting places to visit in the area. The motel is in a...

Our stay was very pleasant, we were blessed with good weather and really enjoyed the garden setting. The motel is an older style property but the unit we stayed in was nicely appointed, the owner was very helpful, recommended a great little Italian and helped us with our bearings. Friendly cat!

I booked online after viewing the other reviews on Trip Advisor and their own website. We wanted somewhere quiet, clean and usually stay in new modern motels as we travel weekly for our business and like some comfort after a hard day. It looked fine on their website and the price was reasonable so we thought why not. We got...

The above review is full of inaccuracies, I was in reception when the lady arrived and was courteous, polite and helpful offering advice on where to eat and so forth, the gentleman looked stressed out and remained seated in the vehicle. The room is kept very clean to a high standard, it is possible that the cleaner missed the 4...

No fuss, no nonsense, clean, comfortable beds, etc. Quiet, no traffic or other guests noises. The daily service was excellent, all the staff we met and talked to were extremely cheerful and helpful.
