Returned to the Copthorne again and reception staff are very friendly and accommodating. Rooms are adequate and clean , but like others have pointed are are feeling dated in their appearance. Overall though , still a satisfactory venue for a couple nights of rest on business.

Last time I stayed here (2 years ago), it was great. This time, somehow not so good: queues at Reception - several times staff not even visible; restaurant seems to have been reduced in size so I was lucky to get a table on my first night, and there was nothing available on my second night. The meals are unnecessarily...

Centrally located (walking distance to the Square) and the reception staff were helpful with our enquiries. However, the facilities in our "Superior room" on the second floor, were very basic indeed which made me wonder what kind of facilities the "ordinary" rooms would have had! Overall, it was OK for our two day / one night visit to the city...

After a long tiring day, the sight 9f the long size bed was awesome. But getting into bed was like climbing into a cloud. A good stay, what you would expect from a Copthorne Hotel. Check on was good even though both young ladies had trainee badges, they were extremely polite and a pleasure, thanks.

We stayed in a family room that is detached from the main hotel building that is seen on the website. The room was comfortable, but could do with an update. The bathroom was accessed from the main bedroom. Not a deal breaker, but this configuration may not suit every family. Also worthy to note is the kitchen. It has no...

Clean comfortable rooms, no air con in summer (small desk fan!!), very average restaurant. Staff relatively friendly but overall pretty average place considering the higher standard I have experienced in others parts of NZ.

The Tower Block rooms were as comfortable as ever, aand the reception and Housekeeping staff polite and friendly. It was a pleasant and relaxing albeit rather short stay and I would definitely avail myself of this property and its facilities on another stay in Palmerston North at any later date.

Warm welcome at reception. Room on the top floor with an excellent view, however there is no air conditioning in the rooms and it was very warm. Staff are aware of this and have raised with management, without success. Food, for a hotel restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. Ideally situated for a stop over between Wellington and Napier.

Got a last minute deal $99 through booking.com our studio room was not in the main hotel but within the grounds. Room was ok for price paid, a bit tired looking on the inside.
