Stayed at the Copthorne on Friday evening, for a Conference in Plymouth. The Hotel from the outside, looks rather run down. Inside, everything was clean and well presented, simply dated. The Receptionist, most helpful and very efficient. The room again, contained everything you'd need but looks aged and needs a lick of paint! Breakfast was well served and the staff... More

Booked through gala hotels & when we arrived we were told that no reservation had been made and hotel was fully fully booked. Receptionist was very helpful and told us gala take your money but doesn't book you into hotel & wait for hotel to contact them which is ludicrous. She managed to find us a room at the holiday...

There are other relict hotels in Plymouth, but this one is a particularly fine period piece. I walked from the station - it takes about five minutes - which brings you to the back door. You go up some stairs and find yourself at reception. All the people I encountered were good. The room was a great blast from the... More

Paid £140 for 1 night single occupancy inc. breakfast- one the worst value hotels I have ever stayed in. Decor is shabby, reception area is ok but that's about as good as it gets. No air conditioning in the bedrooms and the windows only open slightly. Wifi was extra and even though you pay for it it's very slow. No... More

Like going back to the 1980s with faded decor and chintzy furniture. The room was clean as was the hotel itself but it was hugely dated. Staff were fantastic but given the state of the hotel have nothing to work with and I'm not surprised that they really on coach tours of pensioners from the Midlands. Avoid at all costs.

Well located city centre hotel, handy for shops and the railway station and a short walk (10 minutes) to the Barbican. There's a small underground car park which I could see being a problem when the hotel is busy but had spaces to choose from when we arrived on a Saturday afternoon. The hotel is nothing to look at from... More

I stayed at the Copthorne in Plymouth last Friday, as I was attending my son's passing out parade at H.M.S. Raleigh, and wanted to spend some time with him afterwards, instead of the long drive back home the same day. I managed to book a room online with Hotel.com and only paid £54 which I thought was a bargain. I... More

This is a centrally located hotel in Plymouth city. It's clean and basic and fine for somewhere to sleep overnight. Parking is in the basement which is secure but there is a charge of £7.50 per night. We included breakfast in our package, it was OK. The hotel is a bit tired and lacklustre. We found the staff to be... More

I have just returned from a nights stay at the Copthorne Plymouth. First things first, the photgrapher did a great job for the exterior on the web sites, it looks nothing like it in reality, dirty , depressed and past it. The underground garage is cramped, has a high vapour smell which should have a fan to extract and is... More

Only stayed one night and it was a booking made on my behalf by the company i was working for. The hotel itself is nothing special but could be so much more. Booking in was straight forward although having the reception on the first floor seems odd. The room was comfortable, spacious with a nice big bathroom. Arrived late so... More
