Very clean, good size room, bathroom a little bit dated but spotless. Top location close to most eating places, the best one being just next door... Our TV was not working properly, the lady in charge found and organized an other room in less than 15 minutes...It is what I call great service...Highly recommended..

Set in the heart of the CBD – easy walk to everything including the walkway along the sea front. Finding your room in this 3-story hotel is a maze of corridors, finding the restaurant is even harder – faster to go out the main entrance and walk around the side of the building into the restaurant. There are numerous car...

We spent 2 nights in this hotel. Good location, very handy to city centre. From the front the hotel does not look very big, however the bedroom was very spacious. Bathroom was spacious too with a spa pool inside. Room was very clean too. Very happy with our stay.

I stayed at this hotel with a friend during WOMAD 2017. It is clean, quiet and comfortable and an easy walking distance from WOMAD. Our rooms had doa baths with bathsalts! Breakfast is included and is served in a sunny room downstairs. Even though the breakfast staff were run off their feet, they were helpful and charming. The breakfast chef...

This lovely modern air conditioned hotel is in a great position in the centre of town. A couple minutes away from main strip which offers cafes and the fantastic Len Lye Centre Govett-Brewster Art Gallery. There a few new cafe/restaurants located just across the road from Len Lye known as the Precinct. Also , the coastal walk is highly recommended...

We booked this hotel having previously stayed in the sister hotel in Rotorua (Millennium hotels) The difference was like chalk and cheese. Maureen gave us a warm and friendly welcome with good directions to the centre and seafront. A short walk from the hotel. We had asked for a quiet room and we were put in a room to the...

The room was fine if a little small. In fact, that's how I would describe the whole place - fine. It was central and did have free parking In our bathroom was a sign saying that about an hour after the spa bath is used, it will automatically self-clean. We didn't use the spa bath, only the shower, but the...

My room was spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable. I had requested a quiet room - and got exactly that. The restaurant on site serves excellent food and has a good selection of wines . I dined in house both nights of my stay. Staff were all very good and helpful. The free on site parking was a bonus...

Well, first, these Copthorne people don't charge for Wifi (like their mates in P Nth) and many other nz hoteliers who haven't got it yet. Second, super easy to find. Good reception and easy parking. Rooms are fine, but rather like New Plymouth a little unloved/tired. Simple things to fix like not enough plugs, hooks etc. Bed good though, and...

We really enjoyed our stay in the Copthorne New Plymouth and would definitely return. The family room is lovely and spacious. The bathroom has the best shower pressure ever. The receptionists were very helpful and provided us with location of all the local restaurants and activities. The hotel is clean and well decorated which was a lovely change from the...
