Stayed here in New Plymouth for one night only. Hotel was very clean and the staff were very professional. A bit labyrinthine inside, but the staff were very helpful in helping you find your room with ease. Situated very close to the beach and close to the centre of the town, everything is within walking distance.

Stayed 3 nights - ample free parking, room facilities excellent. Internet free and fast. Easy walking distance to sea front and coastal walkway. Lots of bars and restaurants within few minutes walk although hotel has good bar and restaurant itself. Nothing to complain about!

Excellent hotel. The location is very good right in town within walking distance to the coastal walkway and to restaurants. The room was very nice and quiet. I was in a king room. The bed was very comfortable. The staff did an excellent job. You cannot go wrong with Copthorne hotels. I would highly recommend staying there.

Outside of hotel was pretty basic but room was spacious and well furnished. Staff were friendly and helpful. Ridiculous to have a surcharge for paying by credit card. Centrally located. Free parking, though a bit of a squeeze.

Our stay was amazing. We were put in a room that was very noisy due to the Air conditioning unit, we mentioned it the next morning, and were promptly upgraded to another room, with apologies. The Manager, staff and cleaning people were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us to make our stay more comfortable. The rooms were both...

Nice decor and double glazing to keep out the street noise. The room is well appointed and there is even a spa bath. Free parking, some undercover, and close to shops and restaurants. We booked through the Information centre as many other places,were already booked out. Not too expensive, cheaper than the Copthorne we stayed at in Christchurch. Definitely a...

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...

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...
