The restaurant was recommended to us by a local we were visiting and the meal, wine selection and service was excellent. Restaurant was full if you are here in the summer ask for an outside table as the interior gets very hot with the evening sun.

This is a true Boutique luxury hotel. The building has great character and was originally a doctors office and lodgings, now converted to a hotel, restaurant and bar. Each room is unique and tastefully decorated. We've stayed in the Wind Wand room a few times now and its been great every time. The bed is comfortable, the spa bath is... More

I can highly recommend a visit. Lovely rooms, great food and awesome staff. We were treated as if we were their most important customers. It's a very cosy atmosphere and Terry should be very proud of himself

We had Xmas dinner and stayed one night - what a fantastically opulent and relaxing place. I'd be back in a heartbeat! The food was fantastic - nice small restaurant, quiet enough to talk to your table partner and still hear the music on the system. Not like those horrid big city restaurants where you can hear a thing. The... More

This hotel exceeded our expectations in every aspect our stay. We opted for the Luxury Dinner Bed and Breakfast package, and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in fine dining in unique surroundings, serviced by highly professional staff. Terry heads this team and obviously leads by example, he is the perfect host. We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary here... More

It was a first trip to New Plymouth for one of the humans and the first ever road trip for William the dog. Terry and his fabulous team at Nice made it a delight and without a doubt we will back. I have to start with the way William was made so welcome. Nice goes far beyond being dog friendly... More

We stayed for a single night, was such a great experience. Staff we friendly and helpful. Room was clean, and had everything we could need. Very funky decor & had an awesome library nook right outside our room. Super close to the central city - literally 2mins walk.

Over the years visiting New Plymouth on business, always enjoy staying here because it is just like home - a small boutique hotel with cordial atmosphere where many guests know each other. The food is also excellent and location is a few minutes walk to the centre of the town. Definitely worth staying here.

Tasteful and charming boutique hotel where the owner, Terry, and his staff could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Our suite was private and well appointed, warm and comfy with large flat screen and luxury furnishing and bedding. The restaurant is superb, and obviously a popular choice for discerning diners, both guests and locals. We'll be back!
