We stayed as part of a coach tour. All rooms are ground floor. The hotel is tastefully decorated with many free facilities. Rooms are a good size with coffee & tea, iron & board, extra pillows, safe plus ample space for an open suitcase. The shower and bathroom are well laid out and have a good range of accessories.

This review is only about their restaurant - The Grill. Dined here with a group function. Paid $44 for main and dessert. It wasn't worth it. The menu should be clear. If it says your steak or your chicken will be served with steamed vegetables, I'd expect my veges on my plate or in a side dish for me -... More

Copthorne Hotel and Resort should be very concerned with how they present themselves to customers. Perhaps Solway should invest in lifting up their standard and level of staff training. As a New Zealander I was embarrassed by the poor standard presented by the Solway. I have travelled in 6 different overseas destinations this year and this was by far the... More

Have stayed here a few times, the last time over New Year. Good hotel in an ok area. The rooms are ok but are nothing special. Has a few extras if you want to waste some time. The golf range was my favourite.

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
