Copthorne Hotel Grand Central New Plymouth

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Was met by a very courteous and helpful receptionist. Room was very tidy and clean, bed was comfy and the accessible shower facilities were absolutely great with powerful water pressure. Had several Disabled parking facilities which were always available when we came in and out. When realised I was in a wheelchair they promptly changed the room immediately letting us check in a little early when we arrived two hours early. thankyou for a great stay :-) would stay again

Meet by very friendly staff, Bed was comfortable and the room was a good size with all that you need for the stay. Parking is on site and shops and eating facilities are a 2 - 5 minute walk away. But there is a on site restaurant and the food and service is outstanding.

Again very special views but tired hotel. Staff very pleasant and one or two went out of their way to help. Had fish and chips so couldn't go wrong (good chips). Lots on offer but i was with a group from Moatrek Aukland so we were very busy ( will review Moatrek later)

Really good location, close to city. My first time staying here. I was a bit disappointed in the lack of guest parking on site. The room was Good, clean and tidy, with all you expect from a Copthorne. Didn't have dinner there, but had a cooked breakfast in the morning. It was what you'd expect, but I thought a bit pricy.

January in NP was warm and muggy. I was surprised to find the hotel had the air-conditioning in the hallways. This made our stay much more comfortable. The room was spacious and very comfortable and bed comfortable. Our room was away from the lifts and stairwells, so noise was not an issue. Our view from level three looked over most buildings, so we had some water views. The restaurant menu was very western. I'd like to see more variety, but the burgers were good. For a hotel, the restaurant opening hours seemed inadequate.

We stayed in early January on a Road Trip so were only here one night. Room was clean and well appointed and the beds where great. Whole decor is tired though and having been told we had a room with a sea view we were interested to find out it was directly above the reception. Having offering free carparking- carparking was definitely an issue when we came back later at night.

Maureen on reception was brilliant in checkimg us in. Full of information and fun. Nice clean rooms with a spa bath!!! Hotel is central to everything in New Plymouth but nice and quiet. Highly recommended.

Excellent. And helped with needed laundry in the weekend . Also allowed late check out. Staff friendly and helpful with restaurant and travel advice. Organised taxis and on time. Would recommend . Close to city and cafes

I stayed at the Copthorne for 4 nights in February 2018. I was allocated a double room with a spa bath. The room was clean and well maintained. The hotel is located one block from the main street. It is close to a variety of bars, restaurants and takeaway outlets. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. There is limited off-street parking at the hotel but I did not experience any difficulties in getting a car park when required. A quirk of the Copthorne is that reception is located on the second floor with guest rooms of floors 1, 2 and 3.

Good place to stay in the perfect location. Easy walk to town, restaurants and the waterfront boardwalk. Close to the lights festival making it a 5min easy walk to check out the lights and stroll round the park. Awesome very friendly staff.
