"Good meeting location"
About 10 of us from small organisations across Cornwall and Devon, and a couple of visitors from London, needed to meet for a few hours. The Cotehele Room at the Copthorne was booked, and proved eminently suitable. This room is very comfortably furnished around a large table; and other facilities are readily available including Wi-Fi and telephone equipment to enable remote access for one participant. The hotel itself is very close to Plymouth station and bus routes. Water, coffee, tea, and pastries were provided on arrival, and the lunch - served promptly at 12.30 - consisted of a variety of open sandwiches (rolls actually) generously topped with fillings such as ham, tomato, and mustard; tuna; and several more. A bowl of chunky chips provided contrast, and carafes of fruit juice were added to the choice of drinks. Fruit was also available. All-in-all this was a very satisfactory day, and the hotel's facilities and location contributed to that.
"The members of staff were brilliant!"
We booked this hotel because of its convenient location to the railway station and the shopping in Plymouth. Our twin-bedded room was of a reasonable size with comfortable beds. We ate out on our first evening but had a snacks in the bar on our second evening. These were good and we felt were reasonably priced. I would recommend this hotel particularly because of its excellent location - but please read on. Overall I would have rated the facilities very good had it not been for the outstanding assistance that the staff gave. Returning to the hotel on the second evening a lady on reception spotted that I had my arm in a sling and immediately offered to have 4 extra pillows sent to our room. Later it became apparent that I would need to visit the hospital A&E department. Again the staff were brilliant, they organized an ambulance and brought the paramedics to our room when they arrived. When we returned to the hotel at 1:30 am the following morning the staff greeted us warmly and shared a joke about our experiences. The next day we were offered a late check out. We are very grateful for the staff's professional ability and kindness.
"2 night stay"
Stayed in a twin room with my sister. Room warm comfy and quite large with all you would need for a short stay. Breakfast was good we had both buffet and cook to order. Location is great right in the city centre and added parking at a cost of £7.50 a night! Would return.
"Nice stay, central location"
Stayed for 2 nights. Great bed and cosy, clean room. Towels lovely and fresh. Decor is a little dated and a facelift would help but this did not spoil our visit. The bar area could also do with a revamp.
"Cold - in all respects"
Poor hotel. Poor services and poor menus. In November in a cold spell and no heating before 6am. Hotels are supposed to be 24/7 this isn't. Response was basically "heating starts at 6" and that's your lot. Internet never went above 1.2Mbs and again that's what you have. The menus were boring and old fashioned (like the room!) and the Sainsbury's just outside was more appealing. At check in I was asked for a room preference and just asked for a quiet room. The girl was very encouraging and said "109 Is good as it's on the conference room landing and quiet at night" yes the conference room is quiet but the guest room isn't - I could hear the phone ring in reception through the night. They didn't answer that quickly, maybe to avoid questions about heating. Not a great experience and a reminder why I avoid millennium hotels whenever possible.
