On arrival at Flamingo Motel we were made to feel so welcome. Maree actually introduced herself which doesn't happen very often. The unit we stayed in was spotless and the bed very comfy after a long day. The heated pool was so relaxing. Pity the weather wasn't in our favour. Would highly recommend Flamingo Motel to stay in if visiting...

We stayed for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom unit. We loved it. It's an older motel but extremely clean and very comfortable for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. We had a warm and friendly welcome when we arrived and it was no trouble to change rooms from the front to the back of the motel. We enjoyed the indoor...

my fiancé and I stayed at Flamingo Motel over the Easter weekend for 2 nights. We absolutely loved it! We've received an incredibly warm welcome from the owner/manager Toni, who has been very kind and helpful during our stay. The facilities are well maintained and well looked after - the rooms are well equipped and very tidy, fresh and clean...

We had a group of 40 older people on a tour of Taranaki. We chose Flamingo for our New Plymouth stop. From the first phone call till we left, Tony Maree and Kerry made the whole stay a breeze and couldn't be more helpful. We used the games room for a barbeque dinner, and again they helped to make the...

We never intended staying in New Plymouth but when my wife broke her arm and was kept in hospital for three days and then advised against travelling we had to find some accommodation, the I-site suggested The Flamingo and I don't believe we could have found better anywhere in the area. Our rooms were really comfortable and well maintained, the...

Swimming pool including an indoor hot pool. Room décor getting a bit tired but nevertheless always clean and tidy. Plenty of car parks. A range of unit sizes from large living and sleeping space to smaller space to suit most situations.

Our family of four recently spent three nights at the Flamingo. We had two one bedroom suites, and they were perfect for us. The rooms and decor reflect the 1990's, but they were spotless and spacious. Best of all, our host Tony was extremely gracious and accommodating. No request was too much. A member of our group lost a watch...

Nice motel with not much noise from the road. The swimming pool and the hot tub was very nice. The hosts were great and the kids were pleasantly surprised that there some chocolate fish in the fridge.

Stayed here for a week on holiday. Great little place with a full size kitchen, fridge & oven which really makes a difference. Room was big enough for two adults & two teenagers and beds nice & comfy. Have stayed here several times over the last 10 years and has never disappointed. Handy to town if you like a bit...

Our apartment was compact only because we had our bikes stored inside. the rooms were very clean and tidy with very good facilities and everything catered for. the location was good, easy to find and only a couple of blocks away from the walkway, so easy for cycling access. the CBD was a short drive away. There is an outdoor...
