This was everything you could want from a motel unit. It was beautifully furnished, clean and quiet with double glazing. It was in a great location with Fitzroy Beach a few minutes walk down the road and in the other direction shops and cafes. It was a surprise to get over 50 Sky channels and some free WiFi! The staff...

The stylish, well cared-for and comfortable rooms would be enough to warrant a very high rating. However, what makes Fitzroy Beach Motel such a good place to stay is the warmth and friendliness of the manager, Dianne, who is also a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide to the wonderful Taranaki region. And yes, as an earlier reviewer has said, you really...

We were pleased that the Fitzroy Motel lived up to great reviews. We had a one bedroom unit. I'd judge this to be one of the cleanest places I've stayed in, which is a priority for me. Soundless rooms. Good daily room servicing. We used the wifi successfully. We enjoyed using the free bikes on the coastal walkway, as well...

All of the reviews I agree with. What made the stay great was the lovely friendly down to earth lady who took time to treat us as welcomed guests. Fitzroy beach is a nice place to retreat to. Walk the board-walk & go to the Festival Of Lights in the summer.

Fitzroy Beach Hotel is located close to the beach, near the New Plymouth Coastal Walkway. We appreciated the free bicycles that were provided to use on the walkway. The room was spacious, clean and modern - a great place to stay.

We enjoyed our recent stay at Fitzroy Beach. The motel is very close to the great coastal walkway and has bikes you can use to explore with. Fitzroy shops are a short walk for any small supplies. More dining options in New Plymouth itself. The General Store café is a great spot for breakfast or coffee approx. 15min walk on...

Great place to stay. A bit of hike into New Plymouth centre for dinner but there are other places to eat close by, eg the Ugly Duck, if you don’t want to get the car out in the evening to go to dinner. Lovely room, clean and enough space to move around without being on top of each other. Clean...

Stayed one night here with my husband and daughter and really pleased we did. Lovely welcome by staff and very pleasantly surprised with our room.
