Hi ncla040 Thank you for your review. It is pleasing to have the recognition of the group cleanliness, and that ours also met that expectation. You are correct that the decor is dated. Bella Vista New Plymouth has recently changed ownership and is undergoing a refurbishment from carpets to bedding and general decor. This plus our location will make us the obvious choice for your future visits to New Plymouth.

Great service at reception, place is just 5 min short walk to the main city centre where i-site is. Room is clean and wifi is good. Also short walk to the coastal walkway. Would recommend for a short stay.

Free decent wifi?
Yes. It was different speeds in different rooms but overall it was fine. If you have more than one device per person let reception know and they will increase your allowance. Eat at the Hour Glass and Monica's Eatery. Both amazing.

"I think the larger and more expensive rooms are on the ground floor so if you don't like stairs you might need to pay a little more."
"We stayed in a Queen compact room which did not have a kitchenette or microwave - only tea making facilities, a fridge and a toaster."
"Ground floor units are best as you can park outside some of the units."
"Room 9 - has separate bedroom with twin beds"
"Ask for a downstairs room"
