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

Prices are per person per night.
