The Glen Almond House is the victorian house I was expecting to find during all my trip in New Zealand and It had been the only one like that. A beautiful old house with very charming guests and an enchanting view on the sea. Everything was perfect. Anne and Eifion are really taking care of each details. With our to... More

Our family of 6 stayed at the Glen Almond House for 2 nights. The large upstairs room has a balcony and beautiful view of the ocean. The lower level queen room is also spacious and has some beautiful period features. The twin room was very small but was being used by teenagers so it wasn't a major concern. Our hosts... More

We stayed for one night with Anne and Eifion who were great hosts. They gave us valuable information about where to visit for the best views of the sunset, Mt Taranaki, the park and footbridge. It was great to enjoy a long chat and glasses of wine with Eifion by the log fire. The town was a short walk away... More

Lovely historic house - with very welcoming and helpful hosts who went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The balcony room we stayed in was very comfortable, with beautiful views to the Tasman sea. Anne and Eifion kindly lent us bikes and cycling along the coastal walkway/cycleway is highly recommended! We very much appreciated the home baking... More

Our recent four days spent in New Plymouth were made so memorable by the impeccable service and friendly hospitalty of hosts Eifion and Anne. Being met and welcomed at the airport after an evening flight was most appreciated. We were fortunate to have the very large balcony room with sweeping views over New Plymouth to the Tasman Sea. The comfort... More

We stayed in this B&B in January 2012 and very much enjoyed our time there. The room was comfortable and spacious with a nice deck and outlook. We had access to a private bathroom along the hall and down a few stairs. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and treated us to afternoon tea one day and cheese and crackers... More
