New Plymouth is an absolute gem (but something of a secret gem it seems) which should be a must for any holiday in New Zealand’s North Island. And there is nowhere better to stay in beautiful New Plymouth than the Nice Hotel. We stayed for three nights in February this year and it was a truly wonderful experience. The drive...

We treated daughter and son-in-law to the Sheer Luxury Package for 25th wedding anniversary and it was the perfect gift. They loved it! Their room, surroundings, wonderful food and the warmly welcoming staff - loved it all. Thank you Nice Hotel for enabling us to choose the perfect gift.

We stayed at this hotel towards the end of out time in New Zealand and it was quite unlike anywhere we had previously stayed. Firstly, our suite was quirky and unusual - more like a private house and, secondly, the attached restaurant was simply excellent. New Plymouth needs a good facelift but the walks on Mount Taranaki are well worth...

We are a local couple out for really nice meal. We have been here before, perhaps five times over 10 years. The decor hasn't changed to the restaurant and thankfully we were not sitting next to guests working on computers and using cellphones like last time. We did mention this when we paid but told they are paying guests... This...

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.

I went with my wife few months ago to enjoy on a weekend. We had great time as the service is great and their restuaurant is excellent with options to seat outside or inside and also a bar to go before dinner. This is a real hotel boutique where their employees are well training and help us to find some...

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.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in January. We were very impressed with the service and because it is a boutique hotel the attentiveness that comes with it. 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...
