Northgate Motor Lodge is well situated - easily accessible and within walking distance of New Plymouth's tourist attractions. The rooms are well designed and spacious; the amenities provided are good; the wifi is excellent: the staff is helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

Had a very pleasant stay for two nights, comfortable rooms, that were very clean. The staff were very friendly and could not do enough to make us feel welcome. The spa room was a really nice touch and helped ease tired muscles. All in all a lovely place to come back to after our adventures.

Pleasant stay. Central location to city and walkways. Very helpful staff, tidy rooms and good wifi. Comfortable beds. Good location means you are often in walking distance to main attractions Hint: book early. Ask staff for assistance as you need it

The Northgate Motor Lodge is a nice motel, unfortunately it is next to the main road into New Plymouth with plenty of traffic noise !There are other motels in the area which may you have the same problems!

Hello and thankyou for your review. Yes, we are located by a main road, as are the majority of motels in New Zealand. But the front rooms have excellent double glazing especially when the windows are closed securely. Feel free to book again directly and we can discuss the best room type for your stay. Thankyou

Best to get either room 9 or 10 as they are at the back away from busy main road. Kitchen adequate with hot plates, which was a nice bonus for doing basic meal. Spa pool available which was nice and clean. Guest laundry available, which was useful when husband did bike one morning.

Hello and thankyou for your review. All of our rooms are comfortable... the front larger rooms all have very effective double glazing for a relaxing stay, these are our most popular rooms with our regular corporates. We are pleased you enjoyed the facilities in the unit and around the motel.

Quiet Studio room well serviced, even breakfast provided early to suit. Very happy with the site as close to Quality Hotel Conference centre. Had to risk life and limb to cross the 2 lane 1 way freeway as no pedestrian crossings, but this is Councils fault. Couldn't fault the service and our friendly hosts. A great place to stay.

We enjoyed our stay and were pleased to have a stove top to cook on as well as a microwave as it made meal planning very easy and affordable. Location to shopping centre was great which had all the stores we wanted to visit. As we had a two door ute we found we had to park right up on...
