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

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
