We booked our room effortlessly on Booking.com. On arrrival we got a friendly greeting. Plenty of parking and on our return in the evening we were able to have a special park when the car parking was full. On our departure we were allowed to keep our park for an hour while we had brunch. Much appreciated. The room was spotlessly clean and perfect for an overnight stay. The location is fantastic with the sea to one side and shops and cafes to the other. Highly recommend this place for a decently priced, well located and spotless room. My only gripe would be the towels weren’t plush but the bed linen was luxurious and nice soft pillows and comfy beds.

Stayed: November 2017, travelled with family

What a pleasure to stay at this hotel!. Lovely staff- from check-in staff to cleaners and restaurant staff. All so friendly and helpful. It's a small hotel so you never feel overlooked. The location is brilliant - a quick walk to the center plus located right next to the coastal walkway, the Len Lye wind wand and the museum. And what a fabulous restaurant. Superb food and professional wait staff. A very comfortable and clean room with a great view up the coast (room 306). Loved it all.

Room Tip: It's a small pretty quiet city. When we had the balcony door open we could hear a bit of traffic...

My first visit to New Plymouth, perfectly two nights stay in this hotel, surprisingly got little balcony so I can step outside for street view and a bit ocean view. The front desk service were very helpful & friendly, special thanks to Richard, well done!

Very nice room. Very clean. Comfortable bed. Nice decor. Very handy to the Main Street. Lots of cafés/restaurants in walking distance. Undercover parking. Rates on internet were less than Rates advertised at the Front desk. Would stay again.
