My first trip to New Plymouth was a business trip, arriving at Jenny's felt like arriving home.. makes a long day of work not so bad when you come "home" to a clean comfortable place, a good cup of tea, and then wake up the next day to a wonderful breakfast. Thank you Jenny!

Thank you for your kind comments. I hope you can return to New Plymouth when you are able to explore all the beaches, the coastal walkway/cycleway, the Len Lye centre and the beautiful parks at a time when your focus can be on enjoying our region. More

Jenny is lovely, very welcoming and accommodating. Her poached eggs are just legendary, as the other reviews already mentioned. The rhubarb compote is also yummy by the way... The house is super clean and very well placed, a bit out of the city but quiet and close to the beach, at the end of the coastal walkway. The ocean front... More

Jenny's B&B was warm and welcoming and perfect for our quick trip to New Plymouth. The two rooms, a double and a twin each with ensuite, were beautifully made up and ideal for us and our children. There was a wide choice for breakfast and the poached eggs were spot on!

Thank you Joanna for your kind comments. Your appreciation of my poached eggs was only one of 3 for that week!! It has been suggested I put together an info sheet on "eggsactly" the method I use to cook them to make the eggs so attractive to guests!! I may seriously consider doing that! More
