Stayed here as part of a work conference and it was fantastic, the rooms were spacious, tidy and comfortable - the staff were very friendly and nothing was a problem. Would happily stay here again for business or personal travel.

I attended the New Zealand Biosecurity Institute Conference (aka NETS2014) at the end of July. The hotel is well appointed after a recent upgrade and provides excellent conference facilities for groups of up to 300. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. the location is close (walking distance) to the main street and restaurants of New Plymouth. The hotel is... More

I was wowed by this hotel. It had a simple elegance to it. From the foyer, bar and of course to the room. The room was well layed out and used the space to make it seem more roomy. Would have loved to have been there for a summer night and used the deck too! We were there for a... More

We had a two night stay in the Devon Hotel In the most enormous and beautifully appointed room. Two king sized beds, two TVs, huge bathroom with spa bath and shower and a really comfortable seating area. All the staff were incredibly friendly and it is clear from the welcome we experienced that this family run hotel takes their guests... More

Stayed for 3 night weekend. The room was really clean and well equipped. Nothing wrong with the bed. The restaurant downstairs was pretty good too. The hotel itself is well situated and not too much of a walk to other pubs and restaurants. Enjoyed the stay and will not hesitate to return.

The beds were really soft, sunken in, old and very uncomfortable. The other two singles in the room didn't fair much better, but i resorted to sleep in one of those as they were better than the queen. I did complain about the bed to the staff. They weren't very apolgetic, asked me what I wanted to do and I... More

Hi Jenine, Thanks for joining us, and for your feedback. I'm pleased you loved Marbles Buffet, but not happy that you had a less than perfect sleep. All our beds are regularly replaced to try and assist just that. But, we are phasing out single beds in any of our rooms - with most guests preferring kings, queens, or doubles. More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights during our holiday and enjoyed our stay. The rooms were reasonably well appointed and very clean. In fact the entire place was spotless and we loved the fairy lights adorning the trees along the roadside. Our inital contact with the front desk staff was not as helpful as we first expected.
