The best boutique hotel in Taranaki. We were warmly greeted and treated like VIP's - the whole time! Our room was perfect! Spaciousness and taste in its very essence! The most comfy bed with the crispiest sheets made daily. Free cycles to pedal the New Plymouth Coastal Cycleway and enjoy the en route cafe! Watched the white baiters; took in...

This place is truly stunning! We stayed in the Pohutukawa Suite for two nights. The suite is filled with eclectic art & beautifully decorated. The bed is so damn comfortable that you don't want to get out of!!! The restaurant serves mouth watering meals & is reasonably priced. Daniel & all staff are perfect hosts. Jill took care of our...

To be honest, I was expecting something a little more grand. Tiny room with dated bar area. We were promised a King bed and were given a Queen. Small bathroom with bland lotions. Balcony is cute and well used by us as there was nowhere else for us to go except bed.

I stayed here overnight for business, it's. Real treat. If I travel with my wife we stay here. this never disappoints . Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. It's a bit quirky with an old house converted into a small hotel. Restaurant has fantastic meals that really top it off

I stay at the Nice Hotel regularly for work and, for me, it's a guaranteed good stay. The hotel is based around a converted home with some more modern apartment-style accommodation added at the back. Because of its small size and layout it's not your regular hotel - much more like staying at someone's house. Rooms are very comfortable and...

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,...

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...

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...

Nice is an understatement. Nice hotel has a highly professional team of staff who were exceptional; helpful, discrete, and personable. The rooms well appointed and very comfortable. The whole hotel is attractively furnished and decorated achieving the combination of luxury and homeliness. The restaurant food was wonderful and we had to stay three nights to ensure we'd sampled everything we...
