From the minute I walked into this hotel I was made to feel part of the family. The decor is incredible. I stayed in the Pukekura suite...so comfortable and relaxing. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Dining in the restaurant is a journey of gastronomic delights. Most amazing food. Thanks to Sean, Ben and Ravi. Terry Parkes and... More

I can honestly say that this is the most welcoming place I have ever stayed. Terry and his team go out of their way to look after their guests and nothing is too much trouble. Being friendly comes natural here, maybe its the Kiwi way but there is a professional manner too Hotel is small but very comfortable, a little... More

We have just had two wonderful nights with Terry Parkes at the Nice Hotel. The Hotel is beautiful with exquisite design. Terry's art and fascinating collections are world class (especially loved all the amazing mirrors). The intimate spaces including bar, different dining rooms and gorgeous outdoor spaces are great. He makes the best cocktails and the kitchen is world class.... More

Stayed at the Best Suits and ate at the Table restaurant at the Nice Hotel in New Plymouth. Was absolutely fabulous. Wonderful interior, the decor us amazing. Warm, friendly and great level of service. The new bar within the restaurant is perfect to come and relax and enjoy a pre-dinner drink. I stayed during January 2015 and had the most... More

This was our first "summer" Christmas. Amazing welcome as soon as we got out of the car. What a fabulously unique hotel. It was as if we were in someone's house with extremely hospitable owner and staff. Nothing was too much trouble. An amazing Christmas lunch started at 11.30 and went on well into the afternoon.It is a hotel, a... More

The Nice Hotel is totally unique in the most positive way. In a world of bland, global hotels and boring B and Bs, and over priced mediocre motels, the Nice Hotel presents itself as a customized, sophisticated, slightly quirky (but fabulous) experience. I say this as a professional who travels globally for work and pleasure, and I'm taking the time... More

Spend an evening with a large group of friends pre Christmas and experienced a very pleasant evening with some good food and excellent service. All food was hot and tasty. Would recommend to all as a venue for a good night out

I return to my home town a couple of times a year and wouldnt think of staying anywhere else. This is what is great about the Nice Hotel...firstly the service. It is always top class, the environment from the beautiful rooms and bathrooms to the outside covered decking and gardens (with heaters, it is Taranaki after all!), the opulent but... More

My wife and I recently spent 3 weeks touring New Zealand and booked a room on the night of her birthday at the Nice Hotel. Couldn't have been a better choice and probably the best place we stayed in all of NZ. The hotel was charming, the room was great and the hospitality from Terry (the owner) and Amy (on... More
