“A Nice Break Away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

My partner and I enjoyed two very nice nights away at the Copthorne. We had a lovely room with a gorgeous view of the beach and ocean right outside our room. We stayed in Unit 35 and would highly recommend that room. Very comfortable bed and nice big bathroom. We had our own private deck which sadly we couldn't use a lots, as the weather wasn't good. But we didn't let that ruin our stay. We had dinner in the restaurant the first night and the food was wonderful. We both had the steak and I enjoyed the bread and butter pudding. Yum! The service was of a high standard and the waiting staff very professional. The second night we had room service and enjoyed delicious seafood chowder. The full breakfast on both mornings was very nice served buffet style in the dining room with those beautiful views! Again helpful friendly staff. What a great place to stay. Thank you Copthorne Staff. We will be back.

Donna Hi,

We would love to have you back in the Hokianga, but next time when the sun is shining. I am so pleased you enjoyed your break.
The bread and butter pudding is a real favourite, just right for winter.

I hope that your trip home was enjoyable.

Regards Pip

From the time we arrived at reception to the time we checked out we could not fault this hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and willing to share their knowledge of the area. The rooms are well thought out – a large outside deck for the summer and another enclosed area so guests can still sit and take in the view over the winter months. Views are across the inlet to the sand covered hills, quite spectacular! Not to mention the sunset - it was amazing.
The grounds are immaculate as was our room. We are definitely going back in the summer to experience the pool, beach and outdoor areas.
We recommend doing the “Footprints” tour while staying at this hotel. It is a real authentic spiritual experience – well worth the money. Words cannot describe it. See for yourself.

Footprints is an awesome experience. I am so glad that you took the time to do it. It is spiritual, cultural and just so special.
Thanks for your feedback, we really do appreciate it. The summer here is pretty spectacular and we really look forward to your return. I know you will just love it.

Cheers Pip

All you could wish for in a hotel! This time I visited Hokianga I was offered a well appointed upstairs room that was really fantastic. It had great views across the harbour, a large really comfortable bed, a good sized balcony and a conservatory set between the bedroom and balcony. Once again the food was plentiful and delicious. I can't wait to go back to the Hokianga again.

Room Tip: Choose an upstairs room

We stayed in one of the waterfront self contained unit. The unit was very clean, however, the kitchen was a little smelly, of fried food. The lighting in the lounge was not very bright. There was no coffee table which was inconvenient. The breakfast at the restaurant was sufficient with lots of choice. A beautiful location with awesome views and friendly staff

We've stayed here over the years in the beachfront units and its a great spot to relax. You could sit there all day and do nothing but enjoy the view. Our unit was nothing flash but it was fine for our family. Clean and tidy. Kitchen was under equipped, lounge (seating) a little cramped. Their beautiful buffet breakfast was always a treat and definitely an attraction when you have hungry kids. Friendly service - even when we made phone bookings. Would love to see some improvements to the beachfront units- especially the kitchen and lounge. Highly recommended for families!

Room Tip: Beachfront units are best. You can relax on the outdoor seating, watch the kids play and enjoy the b...

Kia ora Carolinastravels,

I have some wonderful news for you. You are entirely right about the
family beach front units. They do need some work and are tired.
We are excited because we are very, very close to starting our refurbishment of many of our rooms. It is quite a major and our intention is to be completely finished by October.
We would love you to come back and check out the exciting changes.

Regards
Pip

Looking straight out onto the harbour. The restaurant was good...our only issue here was that the noise from the room above was a bit much. It did effect our sleep. Rooms however are comfortable and clean, the spot is beautiful.

Room Tip: Possibly an upstairs room would be better as the rooms below get noise from above. it may have just...

This beautifully situated historic hotel never disappoints. This trip we stayed in one of the newer second floor waterfront units, which are spacious and quiet with lovely views over to the famous sand dunes and out to the ocean bar. We loved the conservatory area with its sliding wooden shutters. The room was comfortable, clean and well appointed. Though it wasn't a problem for us, TV addicts may be disappointed with the small set. Dinner here is always a highlight for us and we found the menu selection good and the food excellent. The enthusiastic, unfailingly friendly and helpful young staff make everyone feel welcome - they are to be commended. Thanks for another enjoyable stay.

I love the title of your review. Thanks so much for the wonderful feedback regarding our staff. They are all local people and are very proud of our area.
I am pleased to advise that the small tv's are about to be replaced with much larger flat screens and we will also a movie selection. There are quite a few people that do enjoy a movie or tv, when they are here so I am sure they will enjoy the up grades.
Thanks for staying with us.
