"Copthorne Hotel Plymouth"
The hotel is in the best location to the university and shops. we stayed here for 2 nights while our daughter was moving into the halls at the university what a great experience, the rooms were spacious and very clean beds were very comfy. All cleaners, bar, reception, dining staff were very friendly and all had a smile, but would like to mention a special thank you to Demi a member of staff at the reception who was very helpful when booking my reservation and the 3 phone calls I made before arriving about directions and parking to the hotel, she also couldn't do enough for us while we were there too. The car park is a little tricky to find because of the one way system and can be slightly tight but we have parked in tighter spaces in hotels in Plymouth. Breakfast - was help your self and you had a lot of choice and was very nice, my only criticism would be I like my bacon crispy but that's my personal choice lol We would recommend this hotel and we will be definitely returning here Thank you from Mrs Moclair
"Good base for visiting University."
We have just returned from a 2 night stay as our daughter was starting university and it is the closest hotel. The positives are that it has an underground car park which we found easily, every member of staff we met were very helpful and professional and the room was a good size, very clean with a comfortable bed, plentiful toiletries and was quiet. We were on the 4th floor. The view was of Sainsbury's car park but that wasn't a problem for us. Beyond that you could see for miles. Breakfast was fine, what we expected and it's a quick walk into the city. Yes it's not the prettiest hotel but it was ideally placed for us. We did have an issue with the TV but this was quickly sorted, it just needed a reboot.
"Renovate me, please!"
Location: convenient to station, Uni and retail but not to harbor or Hoe. Practical but soulless. Crowne Plaza is the opposite in terms of location. Layout: designed to confuse. Can't figure out how to get from one place to the next. Badly designed. Very annoying. No sense of arrival (a real put off) Breakfast: over rated by other reviewers in my opinion. Plentiful but not great quality and lacking variety of imagination. Just a mediocre Full English Breakfast. Condition: barely passable. Very dated. Bathrooms show signs of caulking and grout replacements over the decades. All furniture shows signs of wear. Carpet is depressing. Decor is decades old. Why has the owner let this go so long' Staff: the best part of the hotel. Good attitude despite under staffing and poor condition of the building.
"In need of modernisation "
The hotel is situated in the heart of Plymouth and easily accessible, we travelled by bus. The hotel from the outside is rather concrete block looking and unappealing to the eye. The room was very dated and in need of modernisation. This had an en suite with bath and shower head inside, ample sized room. Toiletries were provided. When we booked the photographs of the room looked lovely however I would suggest they are newly decorated rooms but the photos and definitely not what we stayed in. The bed was ok with a nice sized TV. The room contained a hairdryer and even a fridge which was beneficial. There was a sofa in the room which looked dirty and old. From the information to hand at point of booking we were expecting slightly more, nicer, cleaner and fresher room so were a little disappointed. The staff were friendly and helpful and we were able to check in early at no extra cost.
Came on a Friday night as we were staying for the University Open day the next morning. Arrived at about 9.00pm and entered the underground car park which is very tight to say the least!! but as part of our package was free. Check in was fine and we found our room, No. 125. I had booked a room to fit 3 people but what I wasn't expecting, and wasn't told at the time of booking, was a z-bed as the extra bed - not suitable or appropriate for a 5ft 9 18 year old! As we were only there for one night I did not complain but did mention it when checking out and was told that the hotel did not have 'triple rooms' - I should have been told this at the time of booking! Comfortable enough room, good shower, tea/coffee making facilities and clean but avoid this room when booking - our TV kept switching itself off, fridge clicked on and off all night, paper thin walls so all I could hear was the VERY loud TV coming through the walls from the room next door plus the cistern made a noise every time they flushed the loo which was a lot! To add to that, as I was trying to sleep all I could hear at different intervals were people talking very loudly - we were on the first floor with a sort of ramp underneath which was either where the kitchens were or a smoking point - I so wish I had taken ear plugs!! NOT a good night's sleep!! Breakfast very basic, and not displayed particularly well, the room could do with a bit of updating as it looks very tired and shabby but waitress was lovely and efficient. All in all a very disappointing stay and glad we only paid a special rate as we were there for the University day. Sadly would not return.
