This place has done a lot to clean itself up over the past few years. It used to be very noisy, due to the nearby nightlife, but, now they have triple glazed(?) and insulated the windows etc it is very quiet. Its a bit of a rabbit warren with a bunch of different hallways and levels so if you come...

I arrived late and found the front reception staff courteous & helpful. Excellent breakfast of the freshest fruit salad and poached eggs. The room was well presented and clean. Comfortable bed. This is a low priced hotel of high quality presentation.

The room was fantastic, clean and tidy, with a spa bath which was nice treat. The service was fabulous, very friendly, our room was made up everyday - even when we were late to leave and they had already done our floor. The restaurant was the only downside, but given we were staying during the quiet season this was not...

I will definitely be back on my next sales trip. This hotel was walking distance to many restaurants in town, which made it easy for heading out for dinner. I also found the room very comfortable and so so quiet!! It is always hard to find accommodation which is not noisy so very impressed. The front desk was very helpful...

We arrived late and had some issues with our online booking. These were resolved by the staff member who was on hand to greet us and who had already taken the initiative to resolve the issues. We felt that all the staff who dealt with us were genuinely helpful and considerate. They present an excellent image of Copethorne Hotel in...

We were looking forward to our Superior Double room, but it wasn't very superior at all, e.g. the brochure showed crisp, white walls, but they were a tired, dull cream. Also, supposed to be (on website) buffet breakfast from 6.30am - perfect for our plans. Not to be; no buffet - only from 8am on w'ends. We had to wait...

Having stayed at this hotel almost three years ago, we were more than happy to return on this occasion. The reception staff were warmly welcoming and very helpful. Our room was easy to access and glowed in the afternoon sun. The queen bed was comfortable and still allowed for adequate space in the room. The tiled bathroom was clean and...

The young lady at the check in/out desk was absolutely marvellous. We had to change arrangements a couple of times and this young lady was so great about it and made it not a hassle.

This place is great! Comfy bed, clean modern bathroom and really central location. Really nice and quiet here as well. Free wifi is a bonus, why don't some of the other Copthorne hotels offer this?! Lovely service too. Will definitely continue to come back here.
