We were in need of a change of scenery without wanting to travel too far. Copthorne Solway is a perfect place to bring the kids for a short escape from Wellington. We arrived early and were able to check in straight away, thank goodness as the kids were itching to get started on all of the activities available: golf, squash,... More

The Copthorne is a good standard, business-style hotel, of the sort we see in thousands around the world. Rooms are "correct" but nothing special. Free wifi in lobby only. For accommodation: 7/10. Unfortunately our dining experience did not meet the same standard. Appetizers, entree and dessert were all obviously factory catering products just heated on site (but well presented). My... More

We stay here for a night on most school holidays as there is so much for the kids to do and they love it - this time was no exception! Unfortunately both the dinner and breakfast meals weren't up to their usual standard on this visit. The buffet breakfast was particularly poor with bacon left swimming in pools of oil... More

We tried the Copthorne for an overnight stay in Masterton. Check-in was easy and the staff very helpful. Parking is a breeze here with plenty of room. It was nice to come into a room already warm from the heating system. The property is a mix of older and newer wings - we were in the 600-block, which seemed quite... More

It was lovely to come into a room that had the heater going for us. Especially as it was freezing outside. The rooms are spacious and lovely. Reception was average.... But the restaurant at the Grill was very good . Apart from initially waiting about 15 minutes for a table when it didn't seem very busy at the time the... More

This is an honest, good rated Accommodation venue. It doesn't pretend to be something it's not. Generally good to very good rooms, they aren't as contemporary as some equivalents in major metro areas. But, the surrounding land, pure, clean fresh country air, great proximity to boutique and mainstream shops, plus a great warm and friendly assembly of staff make this... More

Stayed two nights as part of Rally Wairarapa. Given a room some distance away from reception, parking right outside & the heatpump on so was nice and warm on arrival. The room is a great size, and apart from the shower needing a bit of attention to mould in the grout, everything was perfect. We had a buffet dinner the... More

With extended family we booked several rooms for four days for a family gathering. Booking staff promptly saw that we have adjacent rooms with excellent car parking beside our rooms. Room staff were efficient and showed the Kiwi friendliness that NZ is noted for. In particular one of our number lost a heirloom ring - found by room staff a... More

Nice setting, quiet, friendly staff. Room looked good but the bathroom was one of the dirtiest I have ever come across, there was dirt dripping down the side of the bathtub, puddles of dirty water in the bottom of the tub & hairs stuck to the bottom of the bath - just filthy! Even the light switch was caked in... More

Excellent hotel, a spacious bed room with good facilities. Food very good with buffet menus. Forgotten any particular issues as there probably were none. Best hotel so far in our tour of North Island.
