We stayed for one night with Anne and Eifion who were great hosts. They gave us valuable information about where to visit for the best views of the sunset, Mt Taranaki, the park and footbridge. It was great to enjoy a long chat and glasses of wine with Eifion by the log fire.

The town was a short walk away (about 15 minutes) so there was no need to drive in, while being away from the main road so it was quiet. There was plenty of off street parking space.

Unfortunately the heating was being upgraded while we were there so the upstairs room wasn't available. It is significantly better than the downstairs room as it is very large and has wonderful views from it's own balcony. Our downstairs room was OK, with a private bathroom and separate toilet but not so special as the upstairs one. It was warm and comfortable though.

Comfortable beds, good facilities.
Pay the extra and take the upstairs room with the views, sun and balcony.
Enjoyable breakfasts. Lovely hosts.

Lovely historic house - with very welcoming and helpful hosts who went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The balcony room we stayed in was very comfortable, with beautiful views to the Tasman sea. Anne and Eifion kindly lent us bikes and cycling along the coastal walkway/cycleway is highly recommended! We very much appreciated the home baking and the fantastic breakfasts. The local information was also very helpful, many thanks!

Our recent four days spent in New Plymouth were made so memorable by the impeccable service and friendly hospitalty of hosts Eifion and Anne. Being met and welcomed at the airport after an evening flight was most appreciated.
We were fortunate to have the very large balcony room with sweeping views over New Plymouth to the Tasman Sea. The comfort of the custom made king bed was exceptional. The elegant bathroom for this room, while private, is separate but only a few steps down the hall, Bath robes for guest use are provided.
Cooked to order breakfasts in the large comfy dining room were plentiful and delicious.
Eifion and Anne are keen to help their guests get the most from their stay in New Plymouth and are a wealth of helpful (and humorous) information about the city and local attractions. They even provided bicycles for us to enjoy the magnificent coastal walkway/cycleway.
Glen Almond House,while functioning as an excellent B&B, is also very much a family home
which we found, added to its warmth and authenticity.
We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay in this historic house.

We stayed in this B&B in January 2012 and very much enjoyed our time there. The room was comfortable and spacious with a nice deck and outlook. We had access to a private bathroom along the hall and down a few stairs.

Our hosts were friendly and helpful and treated us to afternoon tea one day and cheese and crackers on the deck the next - both of which were much appreciated.

We noted in reviews before we booked that shoes may not be worn inside the house - this didn't bother us and it ensured a much more peaceful stay.

The house is walking distance from the New Plymouth foreshore and we enjoyed just being able to leave the car at the guesthouse and walk into town. The local park is also in easy walking distance. If however, you decide that you simply don't want to walk back - its a cheap taxi ride back to Glen Almond from the city centre.

We highly recommend this B&B for people wanting a few peaceful and relaxing days in New Plymouth.
