We were out of luck with all hotels in New Plymouth as they were all booked for the WOMAD festival, luckily for us "Hosking House" had a cancellation and we were so glad as this has changed our whole opinion on B&B's.
We had the opportunity of staying in the Taranaki suite (the largest) of the 3 with a beautiful free standing bath tub and the New York suite. The period home was warm and bright with all the luxurious touches from the lush comfortable beds, fireplaces, New Zealand made bath products, honesty bar with yummy wines,artwork, and the heart that goes into the delicious morning breakfasts.You have all the privacy you would normally have in a hotel suite, except you have Rachel and Rodney who are full of local knowledge if you need it, and you'll be glad you asked.
Its a 2 min stroll to Pukekura Park, walking distance to the CBD with loads of little restaurants and bars. This is definitely the definition of boutique, once you've stayed here you'll want to go back for more of the little personal touches that are hard to come by these days.More
