Loved staying here, such a relaxed but classy place. Great atmosphere, restaurant is superb as is the accommodation. Unfortunately New Plymouth doesn't offer a lot that I will likely return anytime soon, I wish I could have taken the hotel with me.

Thought the hotel was excellent. The restaurant food was as good as any of the major London U.K. Restaurant. Worth a visit to New Plymouth just eat at the restaurant. Staff all very friendly and well trained.

3 of us went for dinner. We had a drink at the bar first, then went through to the restaurant. We had a choice of a table outside or inside and chose the inside one. The 3 course meal we had was lovely and so fancy. The service was very good. We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal.

The dinners at the hotel's restaurant and divine though if breakfast wasn't included we wouldn't have had breakfast there. The hotel is so close to the main strip and coastal...

This hotel is a charming boutique hotel- full of art and a wonderful little reading library, complete with complimentary port- both ruby and tawny. Small touches, but they add tremendously to the atmosphere. We had an executive room with balcony- and the balcony was a great touch- the swing seat was particularly good. It's a lovely place to Relax in...

What a treasure we have found! This hotel is such a breath of fresh air. It's decor is vibrant, eclectic and classy. The staff are so friendly and helpful.

Aptly named, a charming setting, good menu options, delicious meals, I think the service let the night down, to rushed to take our drinks order (hadn't even opened the menu), came back as couldn't find the wine ordered and asked us what we would like instead, we suggested the menu to have another look, and then she stood there waiting...
