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

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

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

A large attractive house on the edge of town. Our stay was two nights and we had a very large room with balcony and views over the bay. Our hosts were excellent and we benefitted from their local knowledge on eating places and local events which gave an extra dimension to our stay. They were also exceptionally kind in helping...
