Our stay could not have been better - full marks in every respect. The welcome on arrival, our room, the hotel facilities, the food, the décor, the gounds. Everything was just perfect. We WILL be back.

A great hotel in central New Plymouth. Friendly, smiling, and super helpful staff. The is modern with all the trimmings, but has obviously had a top to bottom refit, as the "hotel's story" explains how the hotel was developed over two (three) generations by the same family. It's obviously always been the go-to hotel for New Plymouth - we now... More

Great view, very friendly and efficient staff. Beautiful lobby and seating areas inside and outside on the ground floor. The bathroom was great with a spa bath which I made into a luxurious bubble bath! The rooms are clean, modernised and bright. Though the furniture is a bit sparse and too small for the space. Could've done with a desk... More

They have issues with their water pipes making very loud noises and generally thin walls in this hotel. I wouldn't advise staying here if you plan on sleeping well. It's hard to comment on the rest of the feel of the place since sleeping at a hotel is first priority.

Again, our apologies. Yes, there was an issue with the plumbing in your room. I'm glad the team were able to move you to another room, that you enjoyed. Kind regards, Peter Tennent More

The hotel is great. The staff are really friendly, and so positive about their region, and everything we "just had to experience" while there. Their enthusiasm is infectious. The hotel is modern, with amazing grounds. Our room was beautiful. We dined in their main restaurant - it was my wife's birthday, and we had the best night ever! If we... More

We stayed last month and have been meaning to get a review done. We don't normally do reviews, but this hotel is amazing! Clean, fresh décor. The most comfortable beds anywhere.

Thanks for joining us, and for your feedback. New Plymouth consistently has the highest (or close to the highest) sunshine hours in NZ's North Island. But, we need that liquid gold (rain) to keep our gardeners and farmers happy. Hopefully your next stay, we have you enjoying our great outdoors. And, hopefully that next stay is soon.

The Devon is a comfortable and convenient hotel with friendly staff and great facilities. It is within walking distance of the beach, the New Plymouth walkway and good restaurants. It maintains a consistently good standard.

Nice simple clean hotel with good facilities for hosting a conference. Lots of space , a small pool and spa pool with large restaurant area and conference rooms. Perfect for this sort of event as it has all the rooms to accommodate the attendees. All in all nice place.
