I did like that breakfast you could oder a-la-carte rather than the usual buffet. Eggs Benedict were good. Coffee could be better.

Thanks for your feedback regarding our new breakfast menu. I agree, it is much nicer to have a la carte menu rather than a hot buffet for breakfast. I am glad you enjoyed your meal and we look forward to welcoming you back to GCR @ Copthorne Hotel in the future.

Kind regards,
Angela Taylor
General Manager

My husband recently spend two days in New Plymouth, staying at the Copthorne. Restaurant is part of this hotel. We had buffet option breakfast. A little different from others, where the hot options are ordered, and cereal, toast, yoghurts, danishs etc are on table. First morning we ordered the full cooked breakfast. What a huge meal! Neither of us finished it and didn't eat until dinner that night! It was a fantastic meal. Presentation a little haphazard but still great. Second morning, we decided to try something hopefully a little small. Corn fritters, another good sized meal, but not quite a large. Presentation much better on this meal. And it was very nice, with hollaindaise, camembert.brie?, bacon etc with a relish. Could have been better with homemade fritters tho. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Would definitely eat here again.

Had a valentine's meal for two at this restaurant and it was very good. Yes, it is poorly patronised, but people clearly don't know what they are missing.

The menu is not large, but the food we had was very good and the portion size was on the large side. It is not fine dining, but everything was beautifully cooked and very flavoursome. The service was excellent, and overall we had a very pleasant evening out. We will definitely be visiting again based upon this very good experience.
