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.

The room was basic. The beds were uncomfortable. The windows didn't seal properly so let in cold air and the heater didn't work very well. Kitchen facilities were O.K. The bathroom was small and oddly laid out.

If value for money is must, Carrington Motel is also a must. Very comfortable, large room, well fitted out and still under $100.00 a night. We have stayed there many times over the years and have always enjoyed our stay. Mostly in 'our' room, no' 10, upstairs at the back. Walking distance to Pukekura Park and the city. Friendly folks...

We recently had to make an emergency trip to New Plymouth arriving very late in the evening and booking the accommodation on the drive on the way up. The Carrington team were most accommodating ensuring we had access to our room upon our late arrival and that family members meeting us there had access to our room while waiting for...

We had a booking and they were not prepared for that. The hotel simply didn't take our booking, didn't allow us to check in and we had no where else to go. The Staff didn't even tried to help, they just said that won't be possible to stay on their place because there was no clean room to we stay....

Good location but noisy neighborhood at times. Rather lax security as there is an intetnal entry door used by staff and we returned to find this left unlocked which gave acceess to who knows. Grandson had a sweatshirt go missing, not a cheap one. Management sympathetic and promised a follow up with laundry in case it got mixed up with...
