Good location and welcoming hosts

Posted Jul 27, 2014
Pros: We liked the hosts, the room size and the spa pool.
Location: Pukekeura Park and Brooklands Zoo
My daughter and I have been visiting a few places over the past five months and this is one of the better ones we have stayed in. We were looking for warm, clean, comfortable, accessible accommodation and Northgate Lodge met all these requirements. We love coming back to our accommodation at the end of the day and soaking in a private spa and this feature at Northgate Lodge was much appreciated. Our hosts were friendly and helpful.

Easy to locate as on main road into New Plymouth.

Cheerful and helpful staff, tidy room with electric blanket which was essential in the cold weather

Showed promise but didn't feel welcoming

Posted May 19, 2014
Pros: Nice beds, clean & well-sized room, reasonably central and easy to find
Cons: The aforementioned wiring & service. Also the narrow balcony makes it hard to walk with a suitcase. Some covered parking would be nice
Location: Not far from Pukekura Park (5 min drive), which is really worth a visit. The Brooklands Zoo is nearby, CBD another 5 mins away
We thought when booking that this was a little expensive, however haven't traveled much lately, so thought we'd go for something a bit flash. The room was nice and warm (due to a heat pump), clean and with good facilities provided. However we tried to get dinner cooking using the stove top elements provided, they kept turning themselves off. When we called reception, the manager was abrupt and inconvenienced, and advised she would try to get her husband. She turned up shortly after, advised that the circuit breaker was out, popped this back in and advised we shouldn't have so many things turned on at once (we were utilising the stove and heat pump at the time). For the rest of our stay we had to juggle kitchen appliances. The wiring and the service provided needs to be sorted.

Tidy and comfortable

The room is well decorated and maintained. Kitchen is equipped with sufficient facilities. But the wifi is a bit slow. Overall the motel is excellent.

Great motel on the fringe of town centre

Posted Apr 9, 2014
Pros: Its proximity to the town centre, the large bed and the excellent wifi connection.
Cons: Room lighting was too bright to be cosy during the night.
Location: Very conveniently located close to the main street of town...about 3 mins drive.
We arrived late in the day, but since we had already prepaid for accommodation, check-in was superfast and we were told just to leave the key in the room on check-out. The host was super-friendly and ever-ready to assist with any requests.

Average Accomodation

Posted Mar 16, 2014
Average accomodation for the price. Situated on main road, so rather noisy.
