Had to divert from originally booked accommodation for Mt Taranaki expedition to closer location. Very well received last minute; friendly owners and staff, neat, well organized, calm, serene place away from everything but still in the middle of it all. Came back two more nights that same week. Good comfortable and supportive mattress in double rooms. Twenty five minute drive...

Booked in for one night to see Festival of Lights had our three kids with us and had booked a family room/cabin which was just a hollow stone block rectangle with louvre windows (without curtains). We were only provided with one thin blanket each and room was drafty and cold. Luckily we packed sleeping bags for kids and had an...

Stayed here a couple of nights and the place has a great variety of Accom options plus really good shared kitchen, esp the big one in the lodge. Lovely spread out setting in gardens. Toilet / shower blocks took me back to old school campsites but though basic they were spotless and actually just what you need. Reception staff and...

So far, that was the best hostel I have stayed in New Zealand. Pretty tidy, with a good equipped kitchenette, plenty of space for parking. The reception was still opened at 21.15, even though it was supposed to be closed after 21.00. As in most NZ hostels, the book-from-the-counter prices do not match the booking.com prices, but you can always...

We found the Egmont Eco Lodge to be clean and the staff to be friendly and helpful. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom clean with good hot pressure in the shower. The lodge has a friendly resident cat who sleeps on the sofa. We thought it was good value for what...

We stayed 2 night at this place. We had a private 3 persons room, space was enough, warm thanks to a small heating. Common parts could have been cleaner in particular the bathrooms but it contains all that you need.

I had a good experience at the hostel. It was not too busy when I was there - I think maybe 10 guests in total. I stayed in the 6 bed dorm. The rooms linens, bathrooms, and kitchen were clean. The beds were mediocore, but I don't necessarily have the highest expectations at hostels.The kitchen has a bunch of pots...

This is a perfectly nice place to stay in New Plymouth. I have a car so didn't mind the distance from the centre. I didn't explore the grounds as others did because I actually didn't know there were any grounds beyond the big field and leisure block! But apparently there are some animals around. As I said it's totally fine...

First off, there is nothing wrong with this place; the rooms and facilities were tidy and functional, and the kitchen was large and well equipped. If we had taken a tent pitch here, I probably would have considered it good. However, for the price of a double room it was disappointing - you had to trudge outside to get to...

We recently stayed at Egmont for a few nights in a double room. It's quite an uphill trek from the town centre, but once you are there and don't have bags to carry, the walk is fine. The reception is not open during the day (which i don't think is advertised anywhere online). The owners were very friendly and inviting...
