Stayed here over Queens birthday weekend - found this place by just driving by. Stayed in a studio room, very clean and comfortable with a full kitchen. Nice new bedspreads. Shower (no bath). Quiet and a 2 minute walk to Oakura surf beach. Walking distance to a Four Square, Fish n Chip shop, restaurant, sports bar, chemist. 10 min drive to New Plymouth central. A place to go when you want to totally relax and get back to basics. Really nice hosts who just left us to it (exactly what we wanted).
Not the Hilton but fantastic value for money and a very good three star option.
2 x heaters, electric blankets AND hot water bottles - well equipped for cold winter nights.
Only downside was there was meant to be Sky TV but couldn't get Sport or movies (I don't mind but other people may do) .. and shower isn't the greatest pressure, but does the trick.
Would stay here again for sure.
