This place is great! Comfy bed, clean modern bathroom and really central location. Really nice and quiet here as well. Free wifi is a bonus, why don't some of the other Copthorne hotels offer this?! Lovely service too. Will definitely continue to come back here.

Good central location. Probably seen better days but big rooms, comfortable bed and clean. Everything in central New Plymouth in easy walking distance. Pleasant and friendly staff. Parking tests your turning in tight spaces skills.

Just stayed at the Copthorne Hotel Grand Central for one night on a business trip. The front desk staff were very pleasant and the location was good in terms of finding dinner in town after a late arrival. The only glitch was that my wake up call was 20 minutes late. Fortunately, I had my phone set as a backup.... More

The hotel is well located, close to restaurants, bars and shops as well as to the sea front. Staff is friendly and helpful. The setup of the rooms and the hotel is a bit odd but ok. Our room had a big pipe or pillar which made it a bit small but still large enough to fit our 2 big... More

Every time I stay at the Copthorne Hotel Grand Central I have the most amazing stay, the staff go out of their way to treat me as if I were their only guest. The rooms are immaculate and so quite which is something really important to me. Faiz and his team consistently go over and beyond, always greet me with... More

We came for WOMAD weekend. We had a good view of the sea, air conditioning worked as it was quite warm, shower was nice and although we complied with the save the environment and hung up our towels - they were replaced the next day. Bed was comfortable. Staff were pleasant and there are more parking options over the road... More

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.
