We overnighted in New Plymouth at Millennium Hotel's Copthorne Grand Central. This hotel is 1 block off the main street Devon where all the shops are located. Our room was nicely appointed and the bed was very comfortable. It's always nice to be able to open the window to let fresh air in. There is covered parking. The staff is... More

The rooms are spacious with all normal facilities. The bathroom was particularly large. A real plus is the free car park and excellent wifi. The location is ideal being only a few minutes walk to local restaurants. The only negative was external banging in the night needing a room change at 1.30 am and only an apology in the morning...

Location is really good for central New Plymouth. Limited parking but we had no problem during the couple of days and we were in and out in the car. Looks like a significant refurb is underway with work on a complete floor, the bottom floor is a bit of a rabbit warren, but the configuration might be due to refurb... More

A nice place to stay. Central to the walkway and shops. A big plus is the free Internet service. No other hotel offers this in New Plymouth (as far as i'm aware). Friendly service and rooms are clean and spacious.

Excellent friendly check-in and fantastic location. just a 2 minute walk into the CBD or 5 minutes to the coastal walk way. Room was very clean and had just what we needed for a quick weekend away. The spa bath in the room self cleaned after every shower or bath (2 or 3 times) which was a bit annoying especially... More

We stay in what I assume was there top room ($195 per night) for one night. It was a one bedroom unit with a spa and you could just about call it a view to the sea (over selling it a little). The room was clean and tidy and a very average room which would be better priced about $40... More

.... paying $245 for a room. I visited a lot of NZ Hotels with not even half of the price, which where much nicer and better equipped. It's not enough putting a Spa in the bathroom. If the bath has an ambience of an train station toilet with an old shower curtain and a style of colours and furniture which... More

Fantastic place! Rooms were very clean and quiet - no street, fridge or air con noise. Room lovely and spacious, and kept to a good temperature. Staff were excellent - even provided a meeting room with no notice. Free wireless - can't even get that in Auckland! Very central location, with shops and restaurants only a minute walk away.

Got to the room and the family area was over booked. We were upgraded to 2 interconnecting rooms with a kitchen between. The kids loved having their own room, with the security of us being through the door. Great night sleep. Would stay again

I have spent more time in New plymouth this year, than I have in my lifetime! I chose this motel for it's proximity to the city. On many counts, I was not disappointed. From the moment I stepped into the reception area, the likes of Jasmine greeted me with a warm, friendly and inviting smile. Within moments. I was guided... More
