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...

My wife and I stayed at the Copthorne from the 9th to the 12th of January. We found the place immaculately clean, very comfortable (we had a room with a large double bed, as well as a sitting room), and, with a location right in the heart of the city, it couldn't have been more convenient. There is a wheelchair...
