We recently had the pleasure of staying here. We stayed in the Studio apartment and the Garden Room as we were a group of 3. Both rooms were wonderful. Gabrielle is the most lovely host and the house itself is beautiful. No small detail was overlooked. Beds were comfortable, heaters were turned on in our rooms for arrival, there were... More

Travelling to New Plymouth on a monthly basis for work, Airlie House was ALWAYS my accommodation choice. When booking accommodation I look to stay somewhere 'special' and more 'boutique' in style - this lovely bed and breakfast certainly has all the charm and comfort. Gabrielle is a fantastic host, and provides a home from home service, delicious breakfasts and clean,... More

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

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
