Property Description

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 1920s. 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 and pillows supplied. The private rooms also have towels. We have a tent site in our sunny garden as well as laundry facilities, free and fast 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 or one of the 50+ Sky channels 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

Our Office hours are:
Sunday to Wednesday 8am - 8pm
Thursday to Saturday 8am - 9pm
If you think you will be arriving outside of these hours please let us know so we can arrange a late check in.

Brett was great and made me feel super welcome! Kitchen and bathrooms were super clean and it was only a 15 minute walk into the centre. Would definitely recommend

Great place. Owner is a chill and funny guy, he also offers shuttles to Mt Taranaki which helped me out big time. Nice common area’s and well equipped kitchen. Small walk to downtown but super close to grocery store and some fast food/restaurants.
