We really appreciated the free upgrade ! It was a lovely room and very modern ! We really had no complaints ! The bathroom was also lovey. A huge shower. Very good location! You can easily walk into town! Would happily stay here again.

I'm often intrigued when you can get a great review followed up by a poor one. Provided I'm quick to post this it will be one of those times. We were a family of 5 and were expecting joining rooms. No such luck but with a few changes we were at least able to get rooms next to each other....

We came from Auckland to pick up a car and had one great night here. The cleanest room and bathroom and the bed was perfect with clean fresh bedding and a super strong shower. There was no aircons in the rooms but there was a fixed wall heater and fan supplied. Very handy location and walking distance to the town...

Room is clean but bed scarf is dusty. A lot of road noise (sounds like burnouts) in the middle of the night (not the fault of the motel). The panel heater in the room is quite noisy. No in-room free internet (50MB of free data usage in the lobby is inadequate for today's web sites). No cable TV channels.

Booking in to the copthorne was disappointing as it did not depict what the pictures showed. It was small, outdated and uncomfortable. We were not in a hotel but instead we were in units which was like a motel set up.

Thank you for the feedback. Superior hotel rooms are located in the main tower block, with standard rooms located in external buildings. The hotel also has economy rooms available. It is difficult to ascertain for certain from the reviewer name, but it appears you may have viewed Superior room images, but booked the Economy room type?

Basic room nothing flash.. old and tired but great budget price for a couple of beds for the night. Not in the new flash part. Hot shower Tea and coffee selection Jug Iron and board Close to supermarket and a stroll to the square where there are cafes and park walks. Comfy, clean and quiet. Perfect for us.

I've stayed here several times and usually experienced a great stay. I'm not sure if there has been a change in management or cost cutting measures in place but was seriously not impressed with my latest stay. My room was not ready 1.5hrs after the check in time, the receptionist did apologise but when a hotel has a 2pm check...
