My husband and I stayed in the 3 bedroom family unit. Although the outside of the building is a little dated the inside is lovely. Soft fresh carpet throughout, lovely linen in bedrooms and bathroom, everything you need in the kitchen with one drawer dishwasher, modern bathroom and complete with your own private backyard with comfortable garden furniture. A lovely...

Hello and thankyou for your review, we are pleased that you found your stay to have been comfortable. Yes, it is like a home away from home. The outside has recently been painted, which we feel gives it a more modern feel. We hope to see you again in New Plymouth.

Hello and thankyou for your review. We are really pleased that you had a great stay. I'll definitely pass onto our staff how you found the unit so clean! Sorry about the bed, we normally get glowing reviews about our new Sleepyhead beds. But will look into it. We do hope to see you again. Thanks again.

Great place to stay when visiting New Plymouth. The 3-bedroom house is so comfortable and feels like home. The owners are very welcoming and a bonus is the spa pool and BBQ area. Only 5 minutes from central New Plymouth.

Comfortable bed, spacious room. Was a bit cautious after reading other's comments about the road noise, but didn't find it annoying at all. The person who booked me in could have been more welcoming, however to be fair, he also checked me out and he was very pleasant in doing so!!

Our stay here was brief but we really enjoyed the motel. It is a bit of a walk from the town centre and across one fairly busy road by NZ standards but we managed fine. Nice sized rooms with good bathrooms and facilities.

Hello and thankyou for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Yes, it is a brisk 10 minute walk to town or a 15 minute stroll roughly. But there are plenty of eating out choices within minutes with supermarkets nearby too. We hope to see you again another time.

Our stay at the Northgate was super lovely. The staff were amazing, the unit was modern, very clean and warm. The motor lodge was a 10min walk from town, so was incredibly convenient. I would highly recommend staying here!
