Positive Reviews

Can't beat the location

Guests agree that this hotel's location is just about perfect. Its proximity to downtown New Plymouth, as well as the closeness to the beach, earns frequent mention in positive comments. While close to the centre of town, this establishment is located in a quiet area.

Stylish, comfortable rooms

According to reviews, guests are quite impressed with the deluxe rooms offered at this hotel. The accommodations are often described as stylish and warm, with high-quality furnishings that make it easy to relax after a day spent exploring the city. The unique, local artwork and furniture give each room a sense of character not typically found in a hotel. The beds and pillows are a particular hit with travellers, who are very quick to point out how restful their nights are due to these luxury items.

Excellent service

While this accommodation offers self-serve check-in/check-out, guests who interact with the staff here have nothing but nice things to say about them. The property owners and their team are happy to go the extra mile to take care of guest requests. The hosts are described as warm and friendly, and they offer local travel information to newcomers.

Negative Reviews

Noises impacting light sleepers

According to reviews, guests can struggle to get some shut-eye in, if their accommodations are near the on-site eatery or street-facing. Loud sounds from guests in the restaurant late at night often keep other travellers awake longer than they would like. Additionally, sounds from the streets below often travel into rooms, creating a cacophony that prohibits rest for travel-weary guests.
