Score from 34 reviews Excellent
Cleanliness, space, bathrooms, beds, drink facilities and furniture were all top notch.
The exterior lights at every door were very bright and stayed on - this made the interior quite light when we prefer it dark for sleeping.
Everything was perfect, and Michelle the Receptionist was most helpful. The complimentary bikes were a bonus, and we recommend riding them around the stunning foreshore. We had a great meal at Bella Vita
Location Friendly and helpful staff Fresh modern decor
location, facilities, friendly staff,
nothing I could think off.
a pleasant surprise to see how spacious the room was and nice smell- hotel the last 2 nights smelt bad- so I needed a good experience. The staff were helpful. liked the pic on wall and reasonable Kitchen with toaster and cutilary
the tv was off at the wall so I had to get up again to turn it on . already had had to get up to get remote which was by tv. - only small complaint I can think of.
The fact that it was close to everything and was very clean
The bathroom. For the money paid for a night you would expect a stand alone shower not a shower over a small bath. The bathroom completely steamed up and the fan did not clear it. The only view of the water was out the small bathroom and kitchen windows.
Modern, Clean, Quiet, full black out blinds and very close to the sea
Easy to get to everything
The chap at reception was excellent and went out of his way to assist whenever I asked or requested anything.
The view is towards the courtyard instead go the magnificent coastal vista that is only visible via the toilet window. Poor booking in so far as when I booked on the net I was told there were only two rooms left but when we arrived we found many empty units.
The whole package is great. Very handy to everything, can park up & walk. Plus close to the lovely sea front walk.
Lovely and extremely helpful hostess, great to have access to the bikes and helmets to ride on the coastal walkway which is just next to the motel.
Very comfortable, clean and functional, with an excellent little kitchenette. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We stayed for over a week as a base in New Plymouth and were very happy there. Parking was also spacious.
The traffic was noisy outside.
Easy walking distance to a large range of restaurants and bars. Very close to waterfront and coastal walkway.Very friendly and helpful staff and spotlessly clean. Would happily stay here again
Serviced to a high standard Staff particularly friendly and helpful Very close to good restaurants and coastal walkway
No electric blanket for when the weather turned extremely cold.
All of the above - modern unit, beautifully presented and serviced. Excellent staff who went the extra mile to ensure our stay was enjoyable. Good location and proximity to city and coastline.
Early morning, noisy trucks going through to the Port (next road down) were noisy. Closed bathroom and kitchen windows which nullified this problem.
We found the Dawson Hotel to be modern, clean and fresh. The room was a good size with up to date fittings and fixtures. The location is perfect as it is walking distance to the township and the fantastic waterfront walkway.

The road noise!
Staff where really friendly and was close to town.
Rooms were tidy and clean
So comfortable, staff amazing
The Dawson felt like luxury at an affordable price and was in a very convenient location. The studio unit was very spacious and the amenities very modern.
The rooms weren't as sound-proof as a previous review suggested, and I had the unfortunate coincidence of being next to a unit where the occupant got up and thumped around at 5-5:30 every morning. Plus one morning the constant heavy truck activity (taking off at the nearby lights) from before 7am made it impossible to sleep despite earplugs. That was only one morning out of four and it was very quiet at night, though.
