We booked last minute as decided late in the week to have a weekend away and will be back to stay at Flamingo when we next visit New Plymouth. Great location and Tony and Maree are super friendly and helpful hosts. Our room was large and very clean and we particularly enjoyed a surprise chocolate fish on arrival. Next time...

We stayed one night at the Flamingo Motel. The staff were very accommodating to myself and my family, the children remained entertained by the variety of amenities provided. Definitely recommend this motel to everyone travelling through New Plymouth.

We stayed here over Easter for 4 nights. We chose it because it had quite a high rating and some of the great reviews. One of the comments was that it was clean and this was so true, spotless and our units looked like the kitchen had brand new appliances. Liked the fact they supplied pool towels and an extra...

We planned on one night ending up staying two. Just as reviews said the room was so clean with really comfortable beds. Our daughter loved the indoor pool and trampoline. Outdoor pool would be awesome in warmer months. Hosts kindly stored our bikes away for us overnight. Would definitely return. Thanks!

Really good value for money. The rooms are basic but very comfy, very very very clean, have sky TV and some rooms have sea view. The playground is good fun for the kids. And the outdoor pool and indoor heated pool are a great added bonus. You will not be disappointed if you book to stay here for honest good...

This motel doesn't just clean their rooms - They polish them from top to bottom! The Kitchen sink looked like I was the first person ever to use it and the shower and toilet looked the same. I've never been in a place that feels so clean and shiny. Take your swim-suit because they have a pool and a spa,...

We were looking for an affordable place to stay on a quick trip to New Plymouth to climb Mt Taranaki. Reviews through Booking.com were very good for Flamingos so I thought why not. We were not disappointed! Although the complex is a bit dated, all the facilities were great, rooms very clean and had everything we needed. But what really...

Very clean, our studio was huge with everything you could need including a full kitchen. Friendly staff made me feel at home, plenty to do for my young daughter. The chocolate fish topped it off. We hope to stay there again.
