Rachel made us feel very welcome. The London Suite was very well appointed and quiet. Breakfast was excellent. A short walk to the centre of town, and very near the beautiful Pukehura Park. We only stopped for one night, but liked New Plymouth a lot and will be back, and will stay at Hosking again.

Very handy, within walking distance to restaurants, shops, cafes and beautiful Pukekura Park too. Spacious and tastefully decorated. Good breakfast and selection of teas available. Pleasant lounge area available, with selection of books and magazines. Although very attractivly set out, we did not appreciate the toilet being open to the bedroom. This stops it from being a 10.

We stayed with another couple for one night. The house is warm and cosy and very well appointed. Rod and Rachel couldn't be more helpful and went out of their way for us. Rachel even made us a Feijoa cake. The rooms are spacious and the breakfast delicious. I'd highly recommend it over a hotel stay. Bronwen

Highly recommend Hosking House to people seeking accommodation that offers quality, wonderful ambience and a memorable stay. The Villa is super charming. We enjoyed the Taranaki Suite. Lovely hosts. Staying somewhere unique is so much more specail than a motel or hotel experience due to the uniqueness of the room.

This is a lovely old house where the rooms have been extensively modernized providing a very level of comfort along with excellent en-suit facilities. It is located adjacent to the beautiful botanic gardens (which are well worth a visit). Breakfast was very good and our host was very helpful and pleasant. Highly recommended.
