As I mentsioned it's a bit of a walk to get into town, and the shuttle bus only worked short hours then you were left with taxi service. The outlook from the room was great and the facilities were good too. The room was comfortable and spacious. Buffet layout for breakfast and evening meals was spreadout for some reason. On... More

For the most part this was a great hotel. The view was beautiful to watch the bay and the giant palms. The sky was gorgeous and star filled too. The general area is real nice. THe staff was mixed. There was a young guy at the front desk that was so helpful and went out of his way to help... More

We had a very comfortable room with wonderful views from patio area over the Bay of Islands. The first little alarm bell was the 'go green' offer' by not having your room made up. I'm afraid if we are on holiday it is one of the things we enjoy - not having to make the bed and clean the room!... More

We have as a family been visiting the Copthorne Waitangi for 17 years. We have not visited for about 2 years unitl the last couple of days. This used to be an amazing resort with a gorgeous swimming pool complex - possible the best in New Zealand. It is a rock formation with pools spilling into other pools. This time... More

This hotel is a little way out from Paihia, but it's right next to the Treaty Grounds which is worth a visit. Tour buses for Cape Rienga pick up here too, so being out of town isn't too much of a problems. Our room was great - spacious, clean and comfortable. The restaurant buffet was great value - plenty of... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in January. Found the hotel to be a little way out of Paihai but OK for the Treaty Grounds which was just up the road. The room we had was a bit old fashioned, old fan on the ceiling, old style TV and if you were that way inclined no mini bar. The bathroom was... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights in January. We had a great time, 3 generations of family, and all enjoyed our stay. Great location, but the rooms are a bit tired, though the food was good, and service fine. However, the pool was absolutely disgusting, easily the filthiest pool I have ever seen at a resort anywhere in... More

We had spend 2 nights and the view is marvelous ! In the morning we can watch the sunrise and in the evening, we can walk by the beach. It is great! Only that the room is a bit small. The toilet needs more attention!
