Kings Next Move?

The Millennium group has just announced they will no longer proceed with the planned four-star Hotel in Whangarei as demolition work started on the Kingsgate Hotel in Greymouth.

Millennium and Copthorne group has pulled the pin on plans for a Whangarei 80 bed hotel due to a change in tourism, worrying locals. The chain has over 20 hotels including the historic Kings site in Greymouth.

Copthorne Rotorua and the Kingsgates, Greymouth and Te Anau closed in 2020 with the Greymouth webpage for the hotel currently stating, it is closed until further notice.

In 2020 the group said it planned for demolition of the lobby, bar and restaurant area. Prior to Covid-19 there had been big plans for the site.
