  • Older travelers

    Easy to park. Friendly staff. Very helpful at restaurant, my wife caeliac and has to have Gluten - Free food, lots of options and staff most helpful. Central location.

    Very hot in room.

  • Older travelers

    Nice location and easy to find. Handy to shops and waterfront

    First morning shower was barely warm enough and second morning it was cold. They shifted us to another room after that and shower was fine. Restaurant meals expensive and wine very expensive

  • Older travelers

    View from room and Restaurant of Mountain and water. Close to shops . Very heplful, friendly staff. Lovely room very comfortable. Easy parking. .

  • Single

    It was clean and the cooked breakfast was delicious. It had teletext in the room which was helpful.

    The aspect ratio of the tv was set incorrectly.

  • Older travelers

    The proximity to the New Plymouth walkway for biking and walking. It was very convenient for this and the access to the main town too.

  • Older travelers

    Convenient location. Some rooms have good sea views.

    Bedlinen lets this hotel down. Cotton bed sheets were not available.

  • Older travelers

    The staff in the restaurant were exceptionally polite and attentive. The food was excellent

    My daughter booked us into a superior suite with sea view and spa bath. We were not given this at first but after a conversation with my daughter the hotel staff moved us. Unfortunately this took an hour.

  • Older travelers

    clean easy walking distance to town and park

    We like our windows open so can be noisy at night with trucks passing etc.

  • Older travelers

    Our first impression was of a very smart hotel in a fabulous location - right by the seafront. On entering our room we were very impressed with the spaciousness, quality of furnishings and general high standard of presentation.

  • Single

    The comfort of the rooms, roomy bathrooms, exceleent decor

    The road noise. the windows dont appear to have double glazing

  • Couple

    The rooms were great, spacious, clean and very comfortable. The outlook from Sails Bar is awesome.

  • Single

    The handy location and ease of acess from parking the car to getting to my room.

    The noisy trucks going past to the port all hours of the night and morning

  • Older travelers

    The room was lovely and had a spacious feel. The bathroom felt modern and special. Decor was good. The service in the Salt bar was friendly and fun.

    I have to admit that I found the bed rather firm, and my husband noticed the street noise. My only other suggestion would be a decent sized amount of milk - those little plastic containers dont hold much and create so much rubbish whereas a small carton would be so much better!

  • Couple

    when you walked into the room, we both felt relaxed as soon as we walked into the room

  • Older travelers

    This hotel was very clean and had a good location. One problem is the road between the hotel and the sea is very busy on a weekday. The restaurant is excellent.
