                9.6

                The location was just great for a city centre visit. Out the back door of the hotel leads to the smack bang centre of the city and the coastal walkway is 2 minutes away. We didn't move the car all weekend and enjoyed the seaside and the city, shops, restaurants, movies right on our doorstep.

              • Family with children
                7.4

                not much was not very familier with the place. First time in New Plymouth.

                leaving

                curtins were too small for the windows they shine lights at the windows you cant shade out. the heating was useless or did not work.the place smelled damp in the corridors

                7.4

                The hotel has all the amenities that are needed for a business trip. The location was great and there was always ample parking. The staff were friendly and the food was good.

                The internet in my room was awful. I suggest looking at another internet provider.

                Poor state of the rooms ... carpets dirty, and very small. alos noisy as close to city pubs

                7.8

                The bed was very comfortable and the staff pleasant

                Unfortunately the air con not working, and it was a warm night.it was too noisy to have the window open.Bar noise.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                service and staff at the bar were great.

                air conditioning failure on the day we arrived.

              • Couple
                6.4

                Very comfortable room

                Hotel is located too close to bars or clubs as the music and noise kept us awake, air conditioning was not working during our stay. The check in, in my opinion is far too late. Front desk knew we wanted to check in earlier than 2pm yet it took us coming back twice for them to get cleaning ladies to prioritise our room.

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                The hotel was central to the town and handy for either driving from there or walking around the city and their lovely waterfront.

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                The bed was very large and comfortable

                Thought the furniture was a bit rough round the edges

              • Single
                9.6

                The staff were always helpful & friendly, very comfortable room, excellent food in restaurant, good central situation with own parking.

              • Family with children
                5.8

                They provided a portable cot for my baby as requested which was great. Evening reception staff were helpful in giving directions and advice on where to eat etc.

                Dark room, no bedroom window which was a bit depressing. Window in living area looked onto buildings so not a great view. Reception staff when we arrived were very unfriendly and unwelcoming and did not offer any help with luggage and parking etc. Felt we paid too much money for what we got. Over-priced.

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                Hotel staff was friendly and hotel room was excellent, value for money.

                9.4

                Great location relative to availability of shopping, restaurants and seaside . Outstanding restaurant and staff. Room was luxurios and comfortable

                Noise from local establishments.
