We visited from the U.S. for the World Music and Dance Festival. Our accommodations were wonderful. On a quiet street a stones throw from the Tasman Sea. Our hosts, Pat and Bruce were warm and helpful. I would highly recommend it in beautiful New Plymouth.

We stayed two nights here and were lucky enough to have the whole downstairs area more or less to ourselves, including the kitchen/breakfast room with a deck looking over the pretty garden and out to the sea. We booked the Gingko room, which has an adjoining lounge and a large bathroom with a jacuzzi bath as well as a walk-in... More

Lovely and homely appointed B&B in a very nice location in New Plymouth. Very close to the lovely coastal walk, and a short walk to town. The house was lovely and clean, and our hosts were very welcoming. Our room was charming and was quite spacious. We were fortunate on the second morning that we had beautiful weather and had...

We recently stayed 4 nights at 93 By the Sea and highly recommend it. Pat and Bruce are great hosts, offering a warm welcome and making us feel very at home.

We so enjoyed our stay with Pat and Bruce. They made us feel so welcome and gave us fantastic suggestions for our stay in New Plymouth - from dining to sight-seeing. The breakfast was delicious and the setting on the deck overlooking their garden and the sea could not have been more perfect! The location was excellent being a short... More

93 By The Sea is in a peaceful and tranquil setting just above the New Plymouth walkway. The location is fantastic, not only for a short walk to shops and CBD but also for coffees and tapas from a new French cafe closeby. We brought our Fish and Chips back to eat at the B&B then meandered down the walkway... More

Tonight Fred (French Café ) is showing a NZ short film for everyone to view lazing on the lawn, maybe even looking out to sea whilst enjoying what promises to be one of those windless warm evenings. Last night it was beer and pizzas. can't believe we are so lucky More

This was a lovely B & B. Good accommodation, a great breakfast and Bruce a great host, unfortunately Pat was unwell. Easy access to the beach and a lovely walk along the sea to town. Would certainly recommend.

You had it all. 1st day ,the rain, then that offshore wind that whisked great backwash plumes off the incoming surf. Wonderful sunsets, Then the last day the wind died down, the mountain with it's new snowfall appeared and stayed with you as you encircled our guardian. It was great to see you cook on the BBQ and thankyou Russell... More

We stayed at 93 by the Sea 26-28 April 2013 and couldn't have stayed in a better property. The location was great - perfect for walking the Coastal Walkway, walking into New Plymouth main shopping streets, and quiet! And the accommodation was just wonderful.

We spent 2 nights at Pat and Bruce's B&B in March. What a nice couple and a great establishment. Pat was right on with her restaurant recommendations.

Thankyou for your review. Since having started our B&B in 1998 I have come to appreciate that it's the guests. It is the guests that provide the vibrancy and inspiration that I so draw on and in your case re the evening dining options, again it was the guests who offered the recommendation. I so enjoyed your company and will... More
