Review of The State Hotel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Mar 2024
What a wonderful experience, the decor is amazing, the room is small but with everything you need for a short stay ,beds, pillows and linen crisp clean and comfortable. There is no lift so stairs with large suitcases could be an issue but staff happy to help if needed. I had an overnight bag so no issue, location great right in the centre of town and parking just around the corner overall very happy 😃

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.

Beautiful hotel in a central location in New Plymouth. We loved the decor in this hotel. The rooms are comfortable and the whoke place makes you feel at home. Luke is very charming and helpful. Sitting room, free parking, guest laundry are other benefits. Can strongly recommend staying here. Cafes, restaurants, shops and coastal walkway all nearby.
