Great staff, large, well equipped and comfortable room and nice bar and reception area. Parking directly outside my room. Nothing much else to add. Would easily stay here again when I next visit New Plymouth.

I regularly stay at Auto Lodge in New Plymouth for business. During a recent visit the Hotel was full but as opposed to declining my reservation I was offered their Apartment accommodation. The Apartment was beautifully set out with sea views and multiple rooms, the decor was modern with a large kitchen open plan dining and lounge. The Apartment would...

Great restaurant, bar/restaurant staff very good and receptionist who checked us in late Saturday night. On Sunday morning and Monday morning the same receptionist, who was very polite, friendly and knowledgeable, pointed us in the right direction to make the most of our stay. The room however was very tired, 70's look and feel about them. The blinds need replacing...

Staff very friendly and owners were very nice and welcoming. Room was large,clean and tidy. Laundry was helpful as the weather was very wet and the loaned umbrellas were very useful. Would have liked a toaster or microwave.

Apparently some of the rooms have already been renovated and these must be the ones showing on the website. Mine was a little tatty with broken blinds that did not close properly, misaligned wallpaper, black spots on the mirror and holes in some bathroom tiles. A fan ran all night in the bathroom that you could not turn off but...

Room was comfortable but bathroom was seriously dated. Staff were very helpful. Location OK if you've got a car. Short distance to the outstanding sea front path. Didn't eat in motel. We spent one night and would probably recommend it

We had over-reached on travel plans and needed to stop in New Plymouth. The Auto Lodge checked out on all fronts in terms of cost, room style and availability as we searched for options while in transit. Staff were efficient on check-in, the room was beyond expectations for facilities and size, and the breakfast couldn't have been better thanks to...
