My husband became very ill while staying at the Copthorne. The staff went well beyond the call of duty to help us deal with the situation. As well as this, our stay at the hotel itself was excellent and enjoyable as the facilities, cleanliness, staff etc were outstanding.

Staying at the Copthorne New Plymouth was just what we needed. Friendly, helpful staff, central location within walking distance of everything and clean, comfortable rooms. Had breakfast at the restaurant which was enjoyable and filling.

Clean hotel, good friendly staff and in a great location. Stayed as a couple on a short visit with overnight bag. Didn't eat at the restaurant so can't comment about that. Sky TV ok. Fast internet. Building is a bit of a rabbit warren but no problems whatsoever. Happy to stay here again.
