We stayed a Saturday night recently and chose this Hotel as we had a voucher for a 'free upgrade' which you had to present at check in (not when you book). When we arrived, we were told that this Coptherne was a franchisee not one owned by the company, and they do not participate in those vouchers). ...That was a... More

Clean hotel, good friendly staff and in a great location. Stayed as a couple on a short visit with overnight bag. Didn't eat at the restaurant so can't comment about that. Sky TV ok. Fast internet. Building is a bit of a rabbit warren but no problems whatsoever. Happy to stay here again.

The staff was friendly at check in very helpful. The hotel's layout is a wee bit strange with corridors going in different directions but with all the signposts around it wasn't... More

Comfortable good value hotel in the city centre close to cafes, restaurants, the waterfront, coastal walkway and city attractions. A comfortable walk to Pukekura Park. Good parking onsite. Friendly hotel staff. The room was comfortable without being luxurious and everything was clean and fresh.

We stayed two nights and were treated to a comfy, warm room that was clean and spacious. Service was outstanding and we even got a free upgrade. The location was perfect for our night out at the TSB Showplace, and just to wander to parks, shops, galleries. Hope to stay again.

On arrival we were underwhelmed. A drab exterior. A very friendly receptionist greeted us warmly. When we enquiried whether we should book a table for dinner at the restaurant she very cheerfully told us that "Yes we have a bar and a restaurant but it is closed for the next two days" no apology..this was a Friday and Saturday night...
