Andre and Jan a lovely couple who welcome guests into their beautiful home, which is full of South African art and objects. The breakfast is well cooked and very nutritious, the table set with beautiful crockery and ornaments. Hosts very knowledgeable about the local area and best places to visit and the local restaurants. The views from the house are wonderful and if we had more time we would have chilled out in the 'turret with a glass of wine.

Room Tip: It was just right

Tivoli Homestay has a great location with beautiful views over Mt. Taranaki, tidy, clean and lovely rooms, and excellent amenities.

But the best part of our stay were the hosts, Andre and Jan, they were very welcoming, helpful and made sure we had the best possible stay in New Plymouth. In addition the drinks, snacks and food they provided were perfect, I can honestly say that the breakfast they provided is the best breakfast I've had in New Zealand. We stayed during Easter and got freshly baked hot-cross buns on Easter Sunday and they were divine.

Do yourself a favour and stay at Tivoli the next time you go to New Plymoth, I know we will.

A spur of the moment weekend escape led to an absolutely out of this world experience at the majestic TIVOLI. From the moment of arrival, until the (regretful) departure, we were spoiled completely by the wonderful hosts - Jan & Andre. Fabulous room, fabulous meals and superbly taken care of - we couldn't have asked for anything better, and they went to no ends to ensure our comforts were well & truly accommodated. A return stay is now on the agenda, it's just a matter of WHEN - not IF !!. Peaceful & serene was the order of the stay and we were made to feel as if they had known us as friends for ages.

Room Tip: Only 3 rooms at the Homestay, but all beautifully individual & faultless.

An amazing homestay with 2 lovely hosts- Andre and Jan.The room and bathroom is very tidy and bed was comfortable. We had a beautiful breakfast prepared the next morning (all homemade and delicious!) where we talked with the hosts and had an amazing start to the day. We had a very memorable stay and will definately stay here again.

What can I say? With the most amazing views of the sea and mount Taranaki the Tivoli is a beautiful house with equally beautiful decor. Jan and Andre will make you feel like old friends, nothing is too much trouble, not that you will have to actually ask, for anything. Our room was bright, spotlessly clean and immaculately presented as is the rest of the house. Breakfast is a sight to behold and tastes even better. I only wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Garden Room for ensuite
