I was attending a party in New Plymouth and decided to stay here instead of with friends. So glad I did. I wanted a bit of luxury, close to town with parking. I found the two night deal offered made this relatively new hotel the same price as older motels - a great deal. The huge bed was so comfy with everything I need including some internet time each day - just ring reception for password. My room had no view to speak of as it faced the Museum but I was not concerned. If you want to watch the view get a drink in the bar or restaurant and sit on the deck. The lovely girl on reception was most helpful. The restaurant on site was handy and very nice food. The hotel is across the road from the beach but this causes a bit of an issue with young people gathering at night on occasion but police quickly dispersed these yahooers.
I was on my own and felt safe walking to the local bars to listen to the music and have a drink. If you are in the older bracket eg not 20 and still want to enjoy a drink out check out Good Home bar with live music and friendly staff - mixed ages 30-60 and just a short stroll around the corner. It seemed to be busy and open later on the Friday night. Infact it seems in New Plymouth people go out on Fridays not so much on Saturday.
Overall an excellent hotel in the middle of town with parking included.
P.S Love the shower and selection of towels including a larger one.
