We were staying at The Devon Hotel (Marbles is the popular buffet restaurant in the hotel).. Our local friends came and joined us for dinner. They dine here ALL the time, and we could see why. It's mazing. Décor, atmosphere, food selection and quality. Amazing!!!!!!!!!

The Devon Hotel is our favourite hotel. Marbles is the popular restaurant in the hotel. If you are visiting New Plymouth, you have to try this place - it's amazing.
