Fodor's Expert Review The Waterfront Hotel
1 Egmont St., New Plymouth, Taranaki, 4310, New Zealand
Stylish and modern, New Plymouth's only waterfront lodging is handily placed next to the Puke Ariki Museum. Each room has sea or city views and super-king or queen beds; configurations range from studios with showers (no tubs) to elite studios with individual whirlpool baths and penthouse suites with separate bedroom, double whirlpool bath, shower, full laundry, and kitchen facilities. Salt, the hotel restaurant and bar, feels minimalist—all the better to appreciate the view of the beach and Len Lye's 148-foot Wind Wand statue across the road.
- proximity to the beach and Puke Ariki Museum
- city right next door
- good restaurant
- port traffic rumbles past
