Friendly staff and cosy common room

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 Nov 2017via mobile
The Eco park has an exceptionally friendly manager and offers everything you need. The common room has cosy sofas and is situated right next to the kitchen. A family of (protected) eels live in the creek that runs through the property.

This is an amazing place to stay. We originally had a small room in the main building then the lovey lady that seemed to be running round doing everything realised the kids were noisey so moved us to a bigger lodge. We had a joined room to the boys and the huge open dinning area to ourselves and the occasional guest from other cabins pop in. Excellent service from this underestimated B&B definitely will be coming back.

Very nice experience in a friendly hostel with a great receptionist strongly dedicated to her customers. I recommend this hostel for people who plan to do the Pouakai Crossing or other loops at the Mt Taranaki. It is an opportunity to meat other hikers in great conditions.

We've been here only one night in a double room. The receptionist was very kind and helpful, but: first of all the price of the room in the bbh list was 33$pp +4$, but don't know why we paied 42,5$ pp (!!!). And if it's not enough it was added 2$ for the payment with credit card. And it is not in a rural zone! And then.. the room was terrible. Situated in a different building, it's the same maybe since 1970, with a high mold-smell, old and dirty. The walls are so thin that we was waken up by the ringing cell phone of a guests in another room!! It's a shame for the bbh community to have such a hostel in its lists.

I arrived off the late bus from Hamilton and Lyn kept the office open until I arrived, welcoming me warmly. Her hospitality and kindness sustained me through two weeks of coming and going, up the mountain and on all the walking tracks around this beautiful little city. I originally chose the camping site option, where the soft lawn and nearby babbling stream provide a restful sleep. Later I moved into the female bunk room, and then shared a twin room with my friend. The lodge was clean, quiet, and comfortable, with a well-equipped kitchen and laundry. The little stream has a family of tame eels, who gobbled up our vegie scraps. Buses run from the city centre to a handy bus-stop, or it's about a 20 minute walk, and I soon discovered the walking track into town along the river. At night you see glow-worms on the bank. All through the summer holidays New Plymouth puts on a show - nightly free live music concerts in the park surrounded by amazingly beautiful light sculptures. Don't miss the art galleriy - interesting and provocative works. I'll be back!

We only stayed overnight in Egmont Eco Lodge but the green and natural surroundings are a jewel in the heart of suburbia. We stayed in a neat and spacious flat that was very clean and comfortable with lots of kitchen equipment. Lots of parking space, open grounds and cabins would make this an excellent big group accommodation.
As the flat was just behind reception and thus close to the communal kitchen it wasn't the quietest spot, but the 10 pm curfew is very thoughtful for people like us who value an early night.
