“Great value & position”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2011

Travelling with my elderley Mother isn't always easy but Tony was so welcoming & professional & very kindly upgraded us to a larger room which was very much appreciated. The Carrington is excellent value for money & conveniently situated.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2010

This motel is EXACTLY what you're hoping for when funds are tight. Your room is not going to be outfitted with luxury furnishings, but it is spacious enough, spotlessly clean, and conscientiously maintained. Tony at the front desk (management) is refreshingly professional. There is area information galore in your room. Food cooked on the premises is available to be ordered for your room, if you need it. The location is a few minutes' awesome creekside walk from downtown, and quiet (at least when I was there).

The Carrington is great value for money and though it's a little old and dated it was clean and tidy. Jennie and Brett who manage the motel were very helpful and friendly. The room was serviced every day. The Motel is a short walk into the heart of New Plymouth which can be done along the river. New Plymouth has a lot to offer but our favourite was the 7km Coastal Walk, only 15 minutes from the Motel.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2009

My family and I stayed for a weekend to visit relatives and have a break. Our family unit was adequate for our needs. The decor is older probably the 80's. It needs modernising and to have higher cleanliness. The complaint we have with the room was that the bed spread was old and dirty.

Wife and I spent a weekend in New Plymouth and stayed here on the Saturday night as our usual accommodation was booked out.. The NP Tourist Information Centre was able to arrange this motel for us .
The Carrington is an older style two story building . The grounds are neat and tidy with plenty of parking . Our twin unit was very clean and tidy. Shower and toilet cubicles are small but ok . There were two beds, a double and single, both of which were very comfortable.
Cost of our room was NZ$89. We were quite happy with the room and would rate the motel as a 3 star.
