We asked for a fork for our take away, which before was never a problem, but absolutely no way were they going to let us have two forks. The spa was not clean.... More

We stayed in a water view room and the view was just lovely, very peaceful. The room was a little dated, but very clean, large and the beds were comfortable and huge. You could tell that this hotel would have been very fancy in it's heyday, but could do with some updating for those who want that sort of thing.... More

Very nice and friendly place with beautiful views over the bay. The rooms are of a high quality and the beds are superb. Recommended to upgrade to a room with a water view as the bay is just stunning. Wifi is a problem and 500meg is just not enough when you run a business remotely as we do.

We visited the oPaihia during the winter months where the town was very calm and at nights there was nothing to do. However, the hotel was a nice place to stay and if you are looking for a relaxation journey, I recommend this hotel. The staff were friendly and professional and welcoming. The breakfast was also good although it was... More

Stayed in what Copthorne call a Superior room, and although views were quite pleasant, and reasonably clean, we felt that, in view of the competion, the lack of free wifi, very limited sky tv, and a spa pool that was only lukewarm and a very light duvet cover for winter, the experience was disappointing. Probably won't stay at Copthorne again.

We had a lovely seaview room, (when you stood up to look out, not from our bed), very private and sunny, even if it was quite a long walk from the carpark with heavy bags. We were very surprised the Copthorne didnt have Sky TV in the rooms, or Free WiFi, even if it was just an hour or so,... More

We had a fabulous room in the first floor of the hotel with French doors opening out onto a large verandah overlooking the beautiful Bay. This is a very large propert at the bay close to the marina. Room was very clean and spacious.
