We can't fault this conviently located motel. The owners, Ian and Helen, are extremely welcoming and helpful. Rooms are spotlessly clean and have all the basic facilities for self catering. The major supermarkets are over the road. An easy 5-10 minute walk into the centre of town. Highly recommended.

I stayed twice in two weeks for work, once upstairs, once down. With this hot summer, the aircon was great but even having a window open wasn't too noisy to sleep. Comfy rooms. The best thing was the staff, who were super friendly and helpful.

Annual pilgrimage to see the Lights in the Park.
Have tried out numerous motels in NP – Abode is our favourite.
Clean, modern, well-appointed rooms (Sky TV & perc coffee a bonus). Great sleep quality. Secure parking.
Owners Ian and Helen are wonderful – nothing is a problem and they go out of their way to help.
Location is handy for walking to supermarkets, restaurants, waterfront and up to Pukekura Park lights 8:30-10:30pm daily.

Room tip: We usually stay in rooms closer to the waterfront. Ask for downstairs if you have mobility issues.

Thank you very much for your review and we are very happy that you enjoyed your visit to New Plymouth and stay with us. We have been running this motel for a little over a year now, still have a lot to learn but are trying very hard to make everybody feel part of the family.

I had 3 nights here mid December and it was a great spot. Minutes walk to city, across the road from two supermarkets. Unit was soooo clean. Friendly hosts and nice pressure in the shower. Bed was also nice to sleep on and great speed on the internet

Room tip: Ask for unit away from road

Great place, convenient location. Owner worded us up on the need to take Cash to the venue. Cat Stephens was excellent.
Upon check the owner was very friendly. The room was spotless and comfortable.
Would defiantly stay here again.
