This hotel represents outstanding value for money (at least on the date I visited). The booking process was a breeze ($120 NZD) and check in was hassle free. The room itself was very clean, and the furnishings were modern. The bed was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was also well appointed and the water pressure was great. I can't... More

We recently stayed at this Hotel on a Saturday night. The hotel is very centrally located just a couple of blocks from the main city centre. The lobby was nice and modern and well heated compared to the cold weather outside.There was a good amount of outside parking available and check-in was completed very quickly. After dropping off our bags... More

I stayed two nights, and could not fault the hotel. Room was very comfortable, bed good, shower great, soft towels, and quiet. Good lighting in the room so I could do my work. Reception staff were unfailingly good and helpful. I ate twice in the restaurant, and both meals were very enjoyable with good service. A wee bonus is the... More

The renovations in the Tower have created very comfortable rooms since the Hotel upgraded from being a Kingsgate property to its current Copthorne status. The furnishings and decor definitely impress now while the room temperatures were well-regulated. This was much appreciated during the cold nights and frosty mornings of a recent wintertime visit. The Front Desk staff were particularly helpful.... More

Thank you for your comments. The new Sunday carvery is indeed proving popular with guests and locals alike, although it is an extremely rare occurrence to not have space available for our hotel guests. Thanks also for the feedback on which staff members stood out - great to hear More

Great renovations. The Copthorne Palmerston North has recently upgraded from The Kingsgate. Fantastic which includes the restaurant. Meals have improved immensely and the service, as always, is great. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Good views over the city and rural areas. Highly recommend a stay here at very reasonable rates.

A friendly welcome upon arrival, crisp clean sheets and very clean room. Stunning breakfast buffet and morning paper topped off a very pleasant stay. Run down on the outside, a hidden gem on the inside. Can't wait to stay here again. Love the furniture too, want it in my own house, was very handy for my conference too. And walking... More
