We stayed for a weekend wedding, when Palmerston North put on fantastic weather, so was super-hot. The room was fine as hotel rooms go; clean, tidy and up to date; but there was no air conditioning. The windows were open and the net curtain pulled, and there was a fan in the room, but, as fans just circulate air, they...

Great stay in one of the" superior rooms", enjoyed the clean comfortable room and bed. Food was good in the restaurant and enjoyed the breakfast before we left. Would have liked air conditioning. Shower/bathroom good, location good.

Nice room, clean and fresh with comfortable bed. Air conditioning a little noisy but effective at keeping the room cool. Good shower/nice bathroom and toiletries provided. Very nice restaurant with an extensive menu for both evening meal and breakfast.

Stayed in PalmerstonNth for a wedding and booked the Copthorne using frequent flyer points for 2 nights. The location was great and the staff very friendly however the room wasn't air conditioned...and when it's pushing 30 degrees C outside and you're on the 6th floor with only small windows to open and a desk it just doesn't cut it.

Well I do not really like this city, but there is really nothing to say about this hotel: easily accessible, close to town and elegant. The staff is very well mannered, when I asked for the wifi because I needed to work, they moved me to a better room for free saying that the network would be a bit dodgy...

We stayed here for one night, the room looked like it had been updated and was clean and tidy, bed was comfortable. It was very hot as there is no air con. No free wifi in the room only in the lobby. We looked at the restaurant menu in the hotel and thought it was super expensive so went else...

We were booked into the "economy" rooms, due to the usual rooms being over booked. Apparently "economy" means disgusting. The photos speak for themselves, but between three separate rooms we had missing toilet seats, missing TV, stained floors, rotten shower boards, broken shower heads, BED BUGS and faces marks on the toilet wall. Needless to say, we left for another...

Reviewed 3 January 2016 via mobile

This hotel is difficult to find, not on gps. Address is complicating. Has free parking. Wifi free only in lobby and very limited. Room was really hot with only heater in it. This place is used by large tour groups. Can better with aircon, which will also cut out outside noise. Dinner n breakfast was very expensive.
