The room was very stylish room and service great. I had my 93 year old mother with me: it was very easy parking at the front door; easy book in; easy to access the rooms; well appointed room with all the amenities.

Stayed the weekend and will definitely be returning. Room was large, even with family of 3. Comfy and clean, not too hot or cold, just right. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel is very well appointed. Restaurant was really good, the buffet was excellent. Such a bonus having the heated pool and the bikes to hire for...

This is a must stay when in New Plymouth. It is very central and on the main road to the city centre. Don't let that put you off, we had a room facing the road and night time is very quiet. If there are any concerns just ask fro room facing the pools. Speaking of which, there is a nice...

So glad we stayed longer this time. Great friendly staff, whether they were at reception, in the bar, in the restaurant, room service or guest services. Nothing was too much trouble. So helpful. Already looking forward to next time. I hope the wifi improves though.

My wife and I stayed at The Devon Hotel in New Plymouth, and loved it. We got a great deal on their website, and spent 3 days with them. The town was really buzzing with tourist visiting from all around the world for WOMAD. A number of (obvious) stars were staying in the same hotel. We loved everything about our...

Ok so the rooms were typical of what you might find in an average 3star hotel in provincial NZ but the wifi service to the room I stayed in was very poor, didn't connect easily , and when it did connect it would drop out. In addition there is only 1000mb. But on exit they charged a credit card fee....

Thanks for your feedback. Our IT team have subsequently checked the free high speed fibre to your room, and are unable to determine why there was a problem with your computer. I'm particularly disappointed that on your first stay with us (albeit only for a matter of hours), that our 1.75% surcharge on credit card payment on your discounted room...

This is a lovely hotel in a good location. Rooms were clean, lovely pool and spa area. Staff were friendly and helpful. New Plymouth has a lovely coastal walkway perfect for cycling. We had planned to rent cycles in the morning but to our delight when we checked into the hotel we discovered they had bikes right there...free of charge...

Stayed here recently with friends. Ended up with a disabled room which was quite spacious compared with the room our friends had, which looked very small. Positives were the excellent staff both at reception and in the restaurant and the buffet dinner was very good quality and value. Negatives inc the cell like room with a tiny window which our...

We were staying at The Devon Hotel because we were in New Plymouth for a conference (at the hotel). Everything about this hotel is tops. The staff, the facilities, the rooms, the gardens. Everything! Their main restaurant is the best - for food, atmosphere, and downright fun too - Marbles Buffet. We will be back!!!!!!
