Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was our second stay. Nice Hotel is a small boutique hotel owned and operated by hotelier Terry Parks. A well known local identity. Right in the centre of New Plymouth a 5 min walk to restaurants and bars as well as the Len Lye gallery .
Each room is individually decorated and the rooms as well as the entire hotel is home to some interesting art and artefacts . I travel extensively for business and would never normally chose to eat in a hotel restaurant but Table in the NIce hotel is well worth a visit. The food is excellent with a modern twist and changes regularly. The staff are efficient and friendly and bend over backwards to accomodate any requests. We are already planning another visit later in the year and we will definitely be re booking with Terry and the crew. Great experience all round.

First time to New Plymouth even after I lived in NZ 2 1/2 years and this our second trip in the last 3 years. Wonderful city well worth the time to visit. On our arrival met by Terry "the owner", made to feel very welcome, showed to our suite, large bathroom, good size bedroom and then the lounge, dinning area & Kitchen very comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful advising on places to visit. The restaurant must be in the top 10 in NZ, superb meal great service and the breakfast was excellent as well. So much to see a must a walk up Mt. Taranaki, along the wild west coast and visit Pukekura Park with the lovely cricket ground, spent a lovely hour speaking to head groundsman Craig. We missed the Festival of Light by a few days which was a shame. All travellers put New Plymouth on the bucket list and would highly recommend the The Nice Hotel

It would be so simple to recommend just one thing here in this amazing Hotel Nice but no, I cannot because, I recommend everything . From the moment you step in the door your eyes are unable to stop flickering from side to side momentarily settling on all the beauty around you . From the entrance , to the lounge bar area, to the dining room leading out to a tropical heaven. Alfresco dining and drinking lures you into these terraced gardens harmoniously lit to a T . All the while you are greeted and accompanied by the lovely warm welcome from Maggie discreetly guaranteeing your every desire .Our huge bedroom is glorious and just like the rest of the Hotel it is overflowing with loving charm and state of art comfort. The beds are incredibly comfortable and we lacked for nothing. From microwave, to fridge , to expreso machine , to coffee plunger , heat plates , dressing gowns , superb pressure shower , heating, electric blankets and stunning decorations including chandeliers!
We have discovered a real jewel that stands out incomparable with anywhere else in New Plymouth or for that matter in Taranaki . The breakfast is scrumptious and the most delightfully happy owner Terry Parkes made it for us . A man of not only taste but integrity who’s love for art and luxury shine all over this humble naturally refined being . We cannot leave yet our newfound garden of Eden so we will be graced by another night in our dream Hotel Nice .
Thank you so much Terry for making dreams come true Michaela

You could have easily been forgiven for confusing the two - décor straight away suggests you are going to have an opulent and luxurious experience at the Nice Hotel. The service was welcoming and efficient - showing us to our room that actually felt like an apartment with its own deck (admittedly the largest option but well worth it). With all the elegance that reflected its past without any compromise on the mod cons. The restaurant served some of the best cuisine I've had for a long time and the skill of the kitchen evident on the plate - three hat stuff !

Stayed 3 nights this week with a group of very old friends (first met in the 1960's).
A very central location and an easy walk to cafes, restaurants and attractions (as well as shops for my wife).
Host Tracy greeted us like long lost friends and made our visit rather special.
Our suite was called St Mary's and it had everything, spa bath included.
Dined inhouse at the Table restaurant on Tuesday night and enjoyed a wonderful meal in the most opulent surroundings - our waitress(s) were first class.
Farwell breakfast the next morning was equally enjoyable.
Will definitely look to come back next time New Plymouth is on the radar - a short trip from Hamilton, so sure to happen.

What a great place. Stayed with our collie dog in a fantastic room with a private balcony. Nothing was a problem. The people who work there are really friendly, caring and thoughtful. The food in the restaurant was amazing too - loved being able to sit in the courtyard for dinner with the dog. Would have loved to stay longer. Will be back for sure.

Had a lovely experience at the Nice hotel. Perfect location, very clean and had everything you need. Loved the quirky decor. The Halamoana room had a gorgeous little deck and spa bath. Wonderful service. The Table restaurant was closed the night we stayed because it was a Sunday, but our host gave us great recommendations for food and drinks. Would recommend this place highly.

We have been going to the nice hotel for many years and have had a fabulous time, great venue, atmosphere and food. But unfortunately this has now slipped back immensely with the staff unable or not trained to cater for the clientele. The food was good but the service abysmal, with us constantly having to get up off our seats to find a waitress that would serve us. We even suggested to one waitress that if she gave us here cell phone number that we could text her our orders, definitely not something you would expect from a fine dining restaurant.
The nice hotel has a lovely covered outdoor dining area out back but this area has a yellow Perspex wall that is illuminated from within that leads into the kitchen. This area is used by the staff to vape and can be clearly viewed by the customers, something that down grades the atmosphere and should be eliminated

Very enjoyable stay. The room was very roomy, comfortable, warm. Bathroom was both clean and of high quality. Shower pressure impressive. Conveniently located, hard to fault.
The owners have obviously spwnt time to create a warm and welcoming environment, with good art, and furnishings.
