For me there is only one place to stay when visiting New Plymouth. The Nice Hotel is relaxing and very special, the staff are fantastic as is the hands on owner. Should have been called the Fantastic Relaxing, Nice Hotel!

I stayed at the Nice Hotel overnight and wish I could have stayed much longer. From the moment I walked through the door the owners were incredibly helpful and lovely. The room I stayed in was gorgeous and full of character - not bland like so many other places. The bathroom had a spa bath (wonderful!) The highlight of my... More

Lovely little hotel. May seem a little eccentric to some with the interiors, but very comfortable. Food is great, as is the service. A great little place stay in New Plymouth. Within walking distance to the city centre and main street. Great views also. High speed internet is a plus also.

I have stayed at the Nice Hotel for 1 night while in New Plymouth for business on a couple of occasions. It is just a few minutes walk to the town centre. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are good with large spas, but I found it hard to sleep being on a main road... More

Had to make an unexpected trip to New Plymouth and a friend recommended the Nice Hotel and then rang and booked us in. Got there mid afternoon and Terry and Jill made us so welcome, showing us a couple of options to work out what would best suit us and our one year old schnoodle - Bella. We chose a... More

My friend and I stayed in this boutique hotel during the New Plymouth garden festival. The staff are totally charming, friendly and helpful. The breakfasts a delight and the evening meals simply Devine. We were so beautifully looked after by the staff. Our room was interesting, clean, and in a beautiful garden. We were very happy to stay here and... More

I made this trip to Nice Hotel with my family, and we were very grateful for the friendliness and knowledge of all of the staff members we encountered. The hotel is in a great location; we were able to walk to many of our downtown destinations, and when we were ready to use our car, the valet service was very... More

3 C's: Comfortable, Convenient, Cwerky. A small and refurbished old hotel with contemporary pleasant accommodation. And the most comfortable beds compared to commercial hotels, great. The affable host and his lovely and capable and friendly staff. The attached restaurant is one of the most popular dining establishments in town. I like the best of the old and the new, and... More

This is the third time I have stayed at the Nice Hotel in New Plymouth and each time I stay I am just as impressed. Each room has been given it's own name, not a number, as well as a personal homely touch, which makes it more relaxing that a corporate hotel facility. The King sized beds, huge spa baths,... More
