I would highly recommend staying here, it's not cheap but it's worth every penny! The house is beautiful & the hosts are just lovely. They welcome you int their home with open arms! Breakfast was amazing & they even recorded the rugby so we could sit & watch it after breakfast! Thank you so much!!

New Plymouth is an under advertised city in NZ tourist guides but I can assure you that after leaving your hosts at Tivoli Homestay, you will be convinced that there is a lot more to do than what you thought and certainly that you should have stayed a bit longer.

Thank you so very much for your very kind words regarding New Plymouth and our homestay. So glad you appreciated us as your hosts, the architecture, views, decoration, room and breakfast. It certainly makes running a homestay worthwhile when you learn that you made a positive difference in other peoples' experiences. Always welcome!

Homesteads simply do not get any better, everything from cleanliness, food, hosts etc. etc. etc. Were there for the 3 busy days of Womad but will be staying again, and for a little longer to enjoy the company of Jan and Andre.
