A wonderful and memorable week at Nice Hotel, exceptional and tasteful suite room, fabulous food and wine at Table Restaurant, central location for all activities and coastal walks. Terry Parkes and staff very warm and welcoming - could have stayed longer!

I stayed for 2 nights in June 2015. The Nice hotel is an eclectic mix of old and new, traditional and modern, sumptuous and cutting edge - but underpinned by a commitment to friendly luxury. The Pohutukawa room / suite (in the adjoining 'old house', in fact totally modernised) was memorable for fascinating (and appealing) decor, a beautifully comfortable bed... More

We were in New Plymouth for a wet and cold weekend and returned to the Nice Hotel this time staying in a suite, Pukekura. We live in modern minimalistic surroundings so to stay in an extravagantly furnished suite, totally appropriate to the building was wonderful. Wallpapers, chandeliers, aging velvet covered furniture and whimsical touches, it was all wonderful. We ate... More

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
