Our family of 6 stayed at the Glen Almond House for 2 nights. The large upstairs room has a balcony and beautiful view of the ocean. The lower level queen room is also spacious and has some beautiful period features. The twin room was very small but was being used by teenagers so it wasn't a major concern. Our hosts...

We stayed for one night with Anne and Eifion who were great hosts. They gave us valuable information about where to visit for the best views of the sunset, Mt Taranaki, the park and footbridge. It was great to enjoy a long chat and glasses of wine with Eifion by the log fire. The town was a short walk away...

Our recent four days spent in New Plymouth were made so memorable by the impeccable service and friendly hospitalty of hosts Eifion and Anne.
