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

I recently spent the weekend in New Plymouth at the Nice Hotel. What a wonderful experience. From the warm welcome, to the fabulous décor. The bar area is simply stunning - intimate, imaginative and a delight. My room was immaculate and a little haven. Terry is a wonderful host and his team go out of their way to make you... More

I've found the place recommended in my Insight Guide Book and didn't think we could get in around 8 pm, for one night only, but we were lucky, and even got a discount offered for the late arrivals! The young lady at the front desk (sorry I do not remember your name) was amazingly efficient and pleasant. Showed us to... More

We recently had drinks at the new USA plush and upmarket bar at Nice Hotel & Bistro. The bar has beautiful furnishings, excellent selection of drinks, and nibbles. The barman is very friendly and helpful. It is a very comfortable bar to sit relax and enjoy fine drinks. After drinks we went into the restaurant and as it was a... More

Our one night stay included an amazing dinner at Tables, the in house restaurant, and a great American breakfast next morning. The room was magnificent, with a huge spa, imaginative decoration, and everything just perfect to the smallest detail. Jill, our hostess, was friendly, able, and really interested in our smallest needs. Dinner was probably the very best we have... More
