Exceptionally clean accommodation with all amenities. Close to town and waterfront. Management is friendly, proficient and helpful. Outdoor seating in small but well presented area. Plenty of car parking.

Our room was immaculately clean and tidy with every comfort considered. We appreciated the huge attention to detail such as a designated flannel for makeup removal, a selection of beverages and nibbles over and above the usual packaged selection of teas/coffees, etc, and even the tip of the toilet roll folded into a v shape. The bed was very comfortable...

A very clean, comfortable, well equipped room at a price we were happy to pay. Quite close to the centre of New Plymouth. Easy parking outside the room. Nice friendly welcome. Access from the busy main road was a little bit tricky, I'd recommend navigating to the side road and come in through that entrance. Ideal for our one night...

Our experience at this motel was excellent. We were impressed with the response from staff to our requests for ideas of places to visit and local walking tracks. Also the availability of bikes, provided by the motel free of charge, enabled us to travel on the coastal path, a great asset for the city. The motel is ideally positioned for...

(-) As per heading not sure if this particular person was relieving or was management. Found the laundry to be closed during business hours. Too many rules, such as $100 fine if there was found to be a cooking smell, even though these units are self catering. Position of motel was not great. We noticed after read reviews some people...

Kevin, I'm unsure as well, not wanting to make excuses but unfortunately we had a family member pass away during August so we had a couple of relievers in, possibly during the time you stayed, (or may well of been us & as you could imagine it makes for a tough time) but apologies all the same. To answer your...

A fantastic place - we're in a very comfy, clean unit with everything we need. We had a very warm welcome and we couldn't be happier with our last-minute booking. Great location too, just minutes from all sorts of things.

The Lockwood Manor is without a doubt the best motel in this price bracket I have stayed in in NZ. Immaculate accommodation, great sized rooms, lovely and friendly owners, good location. I love the recycling bins, they're a great touch, and a free drink on arrival just tops it all off.

Absolutely stunning. Self catering too. Very very clean. Easy parking. Great dining out venues with charge back to your room. Owners are friendly and accommodating - we had a late check in too. Very cold outside but room was lovely and comfortable. Well worth the cost.

I often stay here when I am sent up for work and it's always such a lovely experience. Staff are very friendly and the rooms are always tidy and clean, It's also close to town so walking distance to the shops. I love staying here!!!
