We stayed two nights in a clean and tidy one-bedroom unit. The room had been recently refurbished and was tastefully decorated. The best parts were the air-con (the weather was very hot), the private courtyard, and there's a good cafe a two minute walk away. Would stay again.

Very neat and tidy inside. Just been renovated with new bathrooms and kitchens. Roomy and easy to become comfortable. Close to the coastal cycle and walkway but a bit of a drive if you need to be close to the city center. Will stay again.

We booked online and were not disappointed - the room was exactly as had been described - cosy, which was reflected in the price we paid - and it suited our needs perfectly, It is centrally located to most of the attractions and the information folder that was in the room was very helpful. There is a dairy just across... More

Good value accommodation - clean and tidy with modern amenities. Free unlimited wi-fi and SKY in the room, as well as a handy location to town. There was separate SKY in both the lounge and bedroom. The beds were comfortable and the lounge included comfortable lounge chairs. The outdoor seating was a bit dirty and dated.

I travel regularly to Taranaki and always stay at The Strand, rooms are clean, easy to book with and great value for money. They have been updated recently with skylights installed which give great light and aspect in rooms. You are two blocks away from the walkway, a 10-min - 15-min walk into town.

I thought it was very tidy, compact rooms but with everything you need. I asked for a Taxi to be booked and it arrived on time. Very friendly people. Good area not too noisy. Would defiantly go and stay there again.

My husband and I were staying just for the night here at The Strand and we found no problems at all. We arrived with a over the phone check in with the nice lady who explained everything as she would had she been there in person. We had the little room and it was fine for what we needed. Close...

Enjoyed little unit! Very neat & clean 😄 love the little courtyard to enjoy morning sun. Kitchenette and bathroom facilities were definitely top class. Beds are comfortable. Suitable for a family for sure. Would definitely stay again in future .
