We stayed 2 nights during our holiday to NZ. A wonderful place to stay, room large and clean and lovely touches with tea, coffee, water and a range of alcohol readily available. Breakfasts were also very good. Particular mention must go to Rod and Rachel's (who are brill hosts) recommendations, though. They were excellent, from which bars to visit to...

My wife and I recently travelled to New Plymouth for a two-day getaway, and what a fabulous stay we had at Hosking House! Rod and Rachel were very gracious hosts, and our room, The Taranaki Room, exceeded our expectations in every way. The breakfasts were delicious, with an array of continental foods, as well as a full breakfast to follow....

My wife and I booked the Taranaki Suite in Hosking House for our wedding accommodation and it was the perfect end to a perfect day! The host was accommodating enough to allow us to have someone check in on our behalf so we didn't have to leave the celebrations early, and when we arrived later we were greeted by a...

Rachel and Rodney are brilliant hosts, they've lovingly restored and adapted their house into a B&B. The breakfasts are excellent and plentiful with the breakfast room overlooking their beautiful garden. They are both very helpful, informative but inobrusive host, it is in a very good location for walking around the town and driving further afield, plenty of information to hand...

Exceptional location, hospitality and accommodation. The hosts, Rachel and Rod exceeded our expectations in every respect including putting us in contact with great people for a trip to the mountain and accommodating our need for a late checkout. Lovely room and 5 star breakfast.

Rachel made us feel very welcome. The London Suite was very well appointed and quiet. Breakfast was excellent. A short walk to the centre of town, and very near the beautiful Pukehura Park. We only stopped for one night, but liked New Plymouth a lot and will be back, and will stay at Hosking again.

Very handy, within walking distance to restaurants, shops, cafes and beautiful Pukekura Park too. Spacious and tastefully decorated. Good breakfast and selection of teas available. Pleasant lounge area available, with selection of books and magazines. Although very attractivly set out, we did not appreciate the toilet being open to the bedroom. This stops it from being a 10.

“As the house has been restored to reflect a boutique style there isn't much storage space available, this slightly spoiled it for us as our clutter spoiled the look of the beautiful room, but this is a very personal view and we probably had more than most travellers might have. Really comfortable bed and the whole place was very spick and span.”
