The hotel is within walking distance of the city centre so is in a perfect location for those who would love to explore the shops without having to worry about taking the car out. The room we stayed in was a nice size and the beds were very comfortable. The spa bath was amazing and lovely after a long day... More

I was in the area on business for the first time with no idea where to stay for the night. Pleased I made the right choice by staying at Copthorne. Service was great, rooms were very clean, modern and affordable. Would stay there again without question.

I stay here on a regular basis for work and I find it is always clean, tidy & very comfortable. The staff are always so friendly and helpful and the rates are real value for money. I love the fact that you are right at the bottom of the main street. Close to all the shops, restaurants, the coastal walkway... More

Only stayed here for the 2 nights but the hotel itself was very quiet. The layout of the rooms was a little weird, with it being a little bit of a maze. The room itself was very clean, not overly big, but it did have a comfortable bed. The spa bath was a self cleaning one which made a horrible... More

Stayed 2 nights. great location for town shopping. Windows double glazed but Saturday night road noise and night revellers a little noisy. staff exceptionally friendly, always acknowledged when entering and exiting hotel., and cleaning staff very friendly and obliging. additional surcharge for credit card payment a little disappointing. restaurant staff friendly and welcoming

Stayed one night here. Very good hotel in the middle of the town, good location. Reception staff were very helpful with site seeing and city information. Rooms were clean and very well kept and up to standard.

We stayed at this hotel over Anzac weekend this year - it was very quiet in New Plymouth, and the hotel was no exception! We asked for a twin room with a double and single, and to our delight discovered the single was in its own little bedroom off the main room. The room was very spacious and clean, and... More

Ideally positioned for exploring New Plymouth town centre and nearby parklands. Hotel parking was available off street and the hotel easy to find on arrival in New Plymouth. Staff are welcoming and knowledgeable about nearby attractions. Accommodation was good, comfortable bed, clean linen and towels and quiet. Breakfast was good, we ate in once with the voucher we received on... More
