My third stay here and it will continue to be my choice when visiting Taranaki. Once again I stayed in the Garden Room with its separate bathroom, heated floor tiles and wonderful toiletries. I really enjoy the little extras Gabrielle provides, such as home made cookies and mini chocolate bars and now there is also a guest fridge in the... More

I recently had the great pleasure of staying two nights in this wonderful B & B - mere words can not describe how beautiful this place is! The very lovely owner Gabrielle picked me up from the bus stop in the city and also took me back there when I left, which was very much appreciated. My gorgeous room was... More

One of our favorite B & B's. Gabrielle made us feel so welcome and was a wonderful hostess. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and we were offered a hot breakfast in addition to the standard continental. Great location as we walked into town each night for dinner. We would definitely come back and stay... 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
