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.

The State Hotel exceeded our expectations. What a beautifully styled hotel with very friendly staff. A well thought out room with comfortable bed and lovely bathroom. There was even a machine in the hallway for fresh drinking water. Centrally located. Highly recommend.

Had a very pleasant 2 night stay here. There is no one on site. To enter you ring the doorbell and a voice answers, opens the door automatically where you find a desk with an envelopes with keys inside, just look for your name. No elevator, all rooms up 2 flights of stairs. Our room was very small, clean, quiet, nicely done, room 10, but had everything you could want including fridge, coffee and tea making, and surprisingly a microwave, plates and cutlery! Air conditioning worked well and was quiet. The king size bed bed and pillows were wonderfully comfortable and the sheets were crisp cotton. There is a small communal lounge which was nice and a cold filtered drinks machine in the hallway which was also a nice touch on a hot day. They had 2 parking sites. The first was to turn down Glover St with the hotel on your left, drive down the alleyway and on the left, there are about 6 spaces including electrical charging point. The bigger parking was on Glover St, just after the alleyway, just off main road on your left, about 10 spaces here. Would highly recommend the Indian called Cinnamon nearby. They have alcohol but you can also BYO and there are 2 supermarkets 2 minutes walk from the hotel. (Try the lamb Laas and the chicken Methi, delicious)! Several small cafes for breakfast if not wanting a full cooked one. Would highly recommend.

We had a lovely stay at the State Hotel after booking on the recommendation from a friend. We booked a room with a king sized bed, the room was spacious & very clean. The bathroom was compact but was all we needed for 2 nights. We did not find it noisy and slept well in our comfy bed. Luke and his staff were curtious and very friendly. We would happily stay again.

I travelled for business and my husband was able to join me. The Hotel is right in the middle of all the restaurants. It has a great Lounge to meet up with other guests or to have a meeting. The room (#1) was very clean, the bathroom was modern with great soap, which included a separate hair conditioner. Parking is slightly offsite but only a 2 minute walk. Luke (front of house) was great!

This lovely old refurbished hotel deserves more than 5 stars - fantastic! We stayed 4 nights visiting family in New Plymouth, and fell totally in love with the State. Very comfortable bed, great shower, the decor of the whole place is outstanding. The Guest Lounge is a tranquil space. We were late arriving due to flights, Luke was at all times available and in spite of our late arrival, all went like a dream. He and his partner work hard at providing very well-managed accommodation. The ambiance of the hotel is calming and beautiful, quiet and conducive to a good sleep. Another plus is it's in the centre of town. Joe's Garage Restaurant, which is in the ground floor area of the hotel, offers great food at 10% discount for hotel guests - we had Brunch there each morning, yummy. Stay here when you're in NP, you won't regret it - a real touch of class.

One of the best hotels we've stayed in - love the decor, comfy bed and great location. The room was spotless and tastefully decorated. We stayed 3 nights but could happily have stayed longer. Luke was friendly and welcoming. Will definitely recommend and will stay again next time we go to New Plymouth.

We stayed just the one night at The State Hotel and it was awesome. Right from check in (friendly, efficient - our key actually waiting and labelled for us!) through to amazingly comfy bed, great linen and pillows and fantastic decor and ambience. A true boutique hotel experience. Loved it. Highly recommended. Oh, and right in the middle of town so excellent location, too.
