Looking for something different with a bit of space at New Plymouth, we stumbled on the Burgess Hill Apartments. What a brilliant place just outside of town, and such charming and thoughtful management. On arrival the manager offered us an upgrade to a rather nice apartment closer to the river. And the apartment had everything, useful kitchen to grill the wonderful NZ blue cod, space and all the 5 star accoutrements one could wish for. There was even a slow burning stove inside and grazing sheep outside for the guests amusement. Being off the road and out of town, a perfect quiet night was easily achieved, and all for a price which certainly did not threaten the wallet.
