This boutique hotel with its bistro provided the highlight of our recent trip to New Zealand. We had a spacious suite and the best welcome that we have ever received at a hotel. The staff were great, welcoming and just so helpful, particularly Jill and Raymond. Great menu and excellent food at the bistro. Certainly exceeded our expectations, couldn't recommend... More

We loved our 3 days in New Plymouth, and the Nice Hotel was the perfect place to stay - central -we walked everywhere- charming rooms (we had the Royal Suite - huge and comfy) and the best restaurant in town. And I must mention how wonderful the staff were - informative, obliging and just so friendly! And did I mention... More

I can not speak more highly of this Hotel. I visited for the weekend for the Garden Festival and stayed with a group of 14 people. The meals and service throughout our entire stay was outstanding led by Terry and Jill. One of our group admired the fresh flowers to our waiter. He explained he grew them and then the... More

The best boutique hotel in Taranaki. We were warmly greeted and treated like VIP's - the whole time! Our room was perfect! Spaciousness and taste in its very essence! The most comfy bed with the crispiest sheets made daily. Free cycles to pedal the New Plymouth Coastal Cycleway and enjoy the en route cafe! Watched the white baiters; took in... More

This place is truly stunning! We stayed in the Pohutukawa Suite for two nights. The suite is filled with eclectic art & beautifully decorated. The bed is so damn comfortable that you don't want to get out of!!! The restaurant serves mouth watering meals & is reasonably priced. Daniel & all staff are perfect hosts. Jill took care of our...

To be honest, I was expecting something a little more grand. Tiny room with dated bar area. We were promised a King bed and were given a Queen. Small bathroom with bland lotions. Balcony is cute and well used by us as there was nowhere else for us to go except bed.

I stayed here overnight for business, it's. Real treat. If I travel with my wife we stay here. this never disappoints . Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. It's a bit quirky with an old house converted into a small hotel. Restaurant has fantastic meals that really top it off

I stay at the Nice Hotel regularly for work and, for me, it's a guaranteed good stay. The hotel is based around a converted home with some more modern apartment-style accommodation added at the back. Because of its small size and layout it's not your regular hotel - much more like staying at someone's house. Rooms are very comfortable and... More
