Arrived tired from Australia and wasn't sure about hotel in the dark but had a good sleep. Not sure about colour scheme looked a bit institutional very clean, the shower was good and along with the bathroom accessories. Pleasantly surprised with lack of noise from other rooms considering hotel was booked up. Close to the sea front. Didn't have breakfast... More

Very friendly staff and nice room but it had an interconnecting door which meant I could hear the next room's TV. The coffee in the restaurant was barely warm but the breakfast muffins were delicious. Another complaint is the pitiful number of Sky TV channels.

Very good service,staff went out of their way to help. Right in the heart of town. Very quiet room. A bit of a labyrinth to get around, but not a serious problem. Good laundry facilities. New Plymouth was a wonderful please to visit.

This was a work trip but as it cost no extra for my family to join me, we all went (2 adults, 2 kids). We were lucky enough to get adjoining rooms with a lounge and kitchen in between. Very tidy, comfy beds, spa baths. Awesome. We did not dine in so can't comment on that. Friendly staff. Great location.

Stayed here in New Plymouth for one night only. Hotel was very clean and the staff were very professional. A bit labyrinthine inside, but the staff were very helpful in helping you find your room with ease. Situated very close to the beach and close to the centre of the town, everything is within walking distance.

Stayed 3 nights - ample free parking, room facilities excellent. Internet free and fast. Easy walking distance to sea front and coastal walkway. Lots of bars and restaurants within few minutes walk although hotel has good bar and restaurant itself. Nothing to complain about!

Excellent hotel. The location is very good right in town within walking distance to the coastal walkway and to restaurants. The room was very nice and quiet. I was in a king room. The bed was very comfortable. The staff did an excellent job. You cannot go wrong with Copthorne hotels. I would highly recommend staying there.

Outside of hotel was pretty basic but room was spacious and well furnished. Staff were friendly and helpful. Ridiculous to have a surcharge for paying by credit card. Centrally located. Free parking, though a bit of a squeeze.

Our stay was amazing. We were put in a room that was very noisy due to the Air conditioning unit, we mentioned it the next morning, and were promptly upgraded to another room, with apologies. The Manager, staff and cleaning people were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us to make our stay more comfortable. The rooms were both... More

Nice decor and double glazing to keep out the street noise. The room is well appointed and there is even a spa bath. Free parking, some undercover, and close to shops and restaurants. We booked through the Information centre as many other places,were already booked out. Not too expensive, cheaper than the Copthorne we stayed at in Christchurch. Definitely a... More
