Property Information:

A warm welcome awaits you at Ducks & Drakes. We love it when our guests tell us it is more like staying in a large house than staying in a hostel. Ducks & Drakes started its life as a private hotel in the 1920's. Today it is a colourful, vibrant, fun place to stay. We are minutes away from the city centre; coastal walkway; Pukekura Park; museums; galleries and a great base to explore further afield.

All our doubles, twins, singles and dorms have fully made beds with sheets, duvets, pillows and towels supplied. We have a tent site in our sunny garden as well as laundry facilities, wifi, bike storage; and a choice of three supermarkets close by.

Our fully equipped kitchen is a great place to make new friends; eat at our fabulous, and very long, dining room table; curl up with a good book in our sunroom; watch a DVD in the guest lounge; or totally recharge your batteries in our sauna after a day in the sun, surf or conquering Mt Taranaki. When your travels bring you to New Plymouth - Ducks & Drakes is a great place to stay

    hi, fyi: the power point in room 10 wasn't working - I am pretty sure it was the point rather than the things plugged into it. Also the handle to the shower tap has been snapped off in the upstairs show. It is still usable but annoying.
