Loved staying at the Hosking House. Great room with an awesome bath to relax and unwind. Rachel welcomed us and made us feel at home. Felt pretty spoilt for breakfast. Definitely would stay again. Location was superb too:)

Hosking House is a gem. Beautifully appointed rooms in an authentically renovated villa, cosy and warm (as was the professional and friendly welcome from Rachel). It is obvious that much care and attention has been paid, from the exquisite bed linen to the complimentary bathroom toiletries, well equipped tea and coffee making facilities and the generous and delicious breakfast served in the sunny breakfast nook. (Admittedly, we were lucky enough to be the only guests on a cold Winter's night so we had the whole floor to ourselves, including an otherwise shared lounge and kitchenette) . Hosking House is only a short walk to the waterfront, the main street of New Plymouth and its fantastic cafés and restaurants. Rachel's restaurant recommendations were terrific. I can't recommend Hosking House and New Plymouth highly enough. The Govett Brewster and the street art are world class and the landscape around Taranaki provides amazing photographic inspiration.

Room Tip: The suite is gorgeous but if ultra privacy is your thing, note there is no door between the suite be...

Hosking House provides the perfect spot to relax and unwind in New Plymouth. It is easy walking distance to the city centre and the coastal walkway and Pukekura Park is virtually at your front door. Rachel is a caring host who is passionate about her city and nothing is too much bother.
We stayed in the Taranaki Suite which is a sizeable space that is very stylish and clean. Breakfasts were personalised and substantial. Without a doubt, we will return!

We visited Hosking House as our retreat for a 30th wedding anniversary. The place is beautifully renovated, our room was delightful. Hot cross buns fresh for guests and an exquisite breakfast. We felt very spoiled and will be back!
