        Great location and comfortable rooms”

        Central, comfortable, friendly

        Good hotel with nice comfortable rooms and the hotel itself is really central for a nice walking visit of central New Plymouth. The only negative is that wifi is not in the price of the room. Although the hotel is central and on a main arterial road, the room was quiet. The friendly and helpful welcome was much appreciated ater a long trip for a first time visitor to New Plymouth and my questions were handled very well even though there was much going on to distract the staff at the time I was speaking with them. A good place to go and use as a base for exploring the area.

        Perfect for a few days away”

        Easy check in. Lovely, friendly staff. Nothing was a problem - even filled our two (bulk 2 litre) water bottles for us for our trip home at check out. Excellent central location for exploring the City and harbour-front on foot and for finding great places to eat. We liked "Chaos" for breakfast/lunch and "Koi" for dinner. The shower over the spa bath was a perfect way to end the day after visiting gardens and local interest spots. We couldn't bring ourselves to use "all that water" to try out the very inviting spa bath itself. Maybe next time.

        We were in NP for a weekend for a theatre show in town. Found this hotel offering a great deal on a King Studio for a night. The location is perfect - right in walking distance from all the bars and shopping. Well, we didn't think being so close to bars would of course disturbe your sleep till about 2 AM, unless you join in.... Apart from the noise it was a comfortable place to stay with great breakfast delivered to your room if you choose so.
