Very quiet, clean & comfortable property located just out of town, that is also pet friendly, with lovely gardens & grounds. Modern kitchenette & bathroom & very comfortable bed. We would have no hesitation in rebooking or recommending to others.

We had a one bedroom unit which suited us - 2 adults in bedroom and one in bed in lounge. Beds very comfortable, heating great so don't worry if staying in winter. Kitchen more than we were expecting. Could easily have prepared a meal. Great bathroom. TV a little small but believe other units had bigger ones. Grounds well looked after and bonus to be able to walk around the parklike gardens. Dogs allowed which is a bonus for those wishing to bring along their canine family. Children and dogs very safe in their outside environment. Short drive to shops etc. Price was very good when compared with others in New Plymouth.

We spent two nights at Ratanui Villas, and it would be our first choice in future. the units are comfortable, the kitchenette is well equipped, and the bathroom is spacious with plenty of area on the washbasin on which to put toiletries. The unit overlooked extensive gardens with mature trees, and plenty of space to walk, or just sit and soak up the sun. It was very quiet, with only the birds and cicadas for company for long periods. There is a supermarket within about 5 minutes drive, and the CBD is about 15 minutes away at most.

Lovely quiet setting in beautiful gardens. Feels like in the country, but only 6/7 minutes from town. Modern unit with nice toiletries, clean. Only downside was the WiFi wasn't great. I would recommend a stay here.Thanks Dianne.

Had a great weekend away with my daughter and 2 grandchildren! Stayed one night in a 2 bedroom room- I wish we had stayed longer! We received a phone call saying our room was ready late morning- perfect! Great service from the lovely team, hopefully we will return. The standard of the rooms and the grounds were very well kept. Perfect place to stay if you are wanting a quiet get away weekend.
