We stayed at Airlie house for just one night whilst on our travels through New Zealand. What a find. Such a lovely house and a gorgeous room with a wonderful bathroom. We enjoyed an extremely comfortable night followed by a delicious breakfast the next morning. Gabrielle is a charming host who immediately made us feel at home. The location is... More

Absolutely fantastic. We have been staying here for 9 years and would not stay anywhere else in New Plymouth. The accommodation is beautiful with lovely extra touches like nice toiletries and delicious home baking. There is a great guest living area and TV room and a lovely verandah to relax on in the evening. Breakfast is awesome. Location is excellent... More

This place is unique. Classic, extremely clean, a divine breakfast and all a stones throw from the city. Gabrielle is the perfect hostess, provides everything you will need and still gives you your privacy. You will never want to get out of the bath but when you do there are heated floor tiles to greet you! You won't find better... More

We stayed at Airlie House for 1 night and it was the best B & B we have been to. The rooms were spacious - we had a room equiped with kitchen facilities upstairs, and the living areas were excellent. Beautiful house, and garden, and Gabrielle was a great hostess. The house is central to everything and we would have... More

We stayed with Gabrielle at her beautiful home for one night. She was a wonderful host and made sure our stay was perfect. We had a garden room overlooking the front lawn and a most amazing bathroom with an old fashioned claw bath. Breakfast was a feast and we shared our table with two other guests who were most entertaining.... More

We stayed for four nights and cannot fault it. The room was perfect and facilities excellent (and spotless). Gabrielle is a wonderful and unobtrusive host and we enjoyed our stay immensely. Definitely the nicest place we stayed on our trip. Gabrielle's attention to detail was great e.g. I mentioned that I drink trim milk and the next day the prepackaged... More

My second visit to Airlie House and again, I couldn't fault it. Gabrielle is a wonderful host and I immediately felt as though I was returning to visit a friend. Stayed in the Garden Room which is large with a view of the gardens and it's own enormous bathroom with Pure Fiji toiletries (my favourite brand). Breakfasts were excellent and... More

Wonderful house & room -- both very tastefully appointed, spotlessly clean and very well located on a quiet lot conveniently adjacent to the CBD. Gabrielle is a very friendly gracious host, breakfast was great! I will certainly return if in the New Plymouth area again.

We were delighted to spend three days and four nights at the Airlie House in New Plymouth. Gabrielle was a fantastic host for our family of three (including our 21 year old son) and, together with two community rooms, our accommodations were everything we could have imagined. Gabrielle's breakfasts were fantastic and the location close to downtown could not have... More
