We enjoyed our stay but will not stay again.Over priced for what it is and had a bad experience with management over charging.Not happy that our credit card was used for an over site on there part.It was sorted out but should not have happened in the first place.Be careful.

The accommodation was in a higgly piggly mishmash of building right in the heart of the village by the sea. It was an easy walk to cafe's, restaurants, Saturday market and the ocean. Great for families as an awesome park across the road too. HOWEVER - the upstairs accommodation was very cold, grubby in some parts, shower door stained, crumbs... More

When you walk into a motel and the reception reeks of cigarette smoke it doesn't fill you with confidence or high expectations. Unfortunately we were right, the room was filthy. Glass table was covered in dust, kitchen wall was covered in fat , the microwave covered in some orange gunk and the shower caddy had black scum on the inside.... More

Robyn G, Manager at Copperfield Seaside Motel, responded to this review

We are horrified to read this. I wonder about the reasons for it. Before making decisions on Copperfield from this review, I would suggest that any prospective guest go to the Booking.com reviews, where they only allow totally verified and bona fide guests to review their stays. Booking.com reviews tell a totally different story. More

Due to a family emergency earlier on this year, I ended up staying at this motel for close onto six months and could not have picked a better place to stay. Right from the start, the managers Robyn and Richard were very welcoming and nothing was ever too much trouble. I found that if ever there was a problem, it... More

Upon our arrival the office door was locked and I was told to wait while she finished dealing with the cleaner.(staff must be more important then paying guests). Our room was clean and looked to have new carpet, and the chocolates on the beds made for a nice welcome. However the lack of a sink made it difficult to do... More

Can't sugar coat this review as this property really is in need of refurbishment, particularly on the outside (buildings are particularly grotty). Inside clean and tidy although carpets are in need of replacement and bathroom mirror has seen better days. Friendly hosts although as previously mentioned in reviews stale smoke very evident in reception area.

This was a mixed bag - the motel was not what I expected and looked a little different to the pictures I saw on one website but looked true to what I saw on this one. The owner at Reception was welcoming and hospitable on arrival. However, the smell of smoke was very strong in the reception area and up... More

This is a good location - with a tired fitout that needs a major shot in the arm. Management is warm, friendly and effective - if a tad folksy. Units are basic - but clean and comfortable. Sadly they have trucking clients who arrive at all hours - and jolt you from your bed. Purely on this basis I would... More

Just one block back from the fabulous beach at Paraparaumu, this motel is in a great location. The rooms are comfortable, if a little tired. The proprietors are friendly and helpful. Really handy for the shops. There is a restaurant, a coffee shop and a food takeaway in the complex, a pizza place just over the road and other restaurants... More

We stayed one night at the motel on a drive back to Wellington on a Saturday night. We booked a studio room with a spa. The motel is well located, within easy walking distance of the Paraparam beach shops and restaurants. The receptionist lady was very friendly and showed us to our room. The room was basic, and decor slightly... More
