We spent 3 nights at Nice Hotel, with our two young boisterous boys, and were absolutely looked after by the staff, right down to delivering our breakfasts (I admit it was so that we wouldn't disturb other guests in the very upmarket restaurant, so they were probably quite happy to accomodate us!) each morning. The suite was superb, decor luscious,... More

Four of us stayed in the villa at this expectedly very nice boutique hotel in the heart of New Plymouth run by Terry Parkes. The hotel is a short walk to the main street and board walk. The interior of the villa is, as is the bistro, extremely tasteful and has a feeling of great luxury. We enjoyed a special... More

Nice hotel is just what it promises - nice. It's a lovely establishment with very friendly and helpful staff. They were great for sure. But for me, the rooms were loud. The hotel is on a rather busy main thoroughfare. I asked for a different room because of this and they were very accomodating, offering another. But that one was... More

Set in the heart of New Plymouth this dining experience is something like no other , the food is amazing with plenty of options and the service is second to none in my opinion. The New York styled bar is a nice touch and the outdoor area is a really nice touch.

Great meal with great service. The scotch fillet was done to perfection. A good selection of local wines and beers. Certainly the place to dine in New Plymouth. Very popular for obvious reasons so suggest you book
