This hotel offered a deal online that included breakfast on arrival we were told that was not the case and it was $10 dearer, she upgraded us to a waterfront unit. The rooms are quite dark and in dire need of a make over bits out of the wall bathroom was clean but grubby looking. My gripe is this same...

I am lucky enough to stay Here fairly regularly as I am often in the area for work. This Copthorne Hotel is unlike any other Copthorne I have stayed at. Of course being a Copthorne it is not as nice as a Millennium Hotel, but in nicer than a Kingsgate. The difference beetween this Copthorne and the others I have...

We stayed for 3 nights at the start of our NZ tour. Our room had a great view over the bay. The hotel is right by the water, set in lovely grounds with a great lagoon style pool. The food was average. Plenty of choice on the dinner buffet, but not a great selection on the a la carte menu....

We opted for a ground floor sea view room and we're delighted with the position and outlook of our room. However, it was in need of a little TLC, décor was slightly outdated as was the bathroom. That said overall we were very pleased. The restaurant and service was good. We were surprised though that Wifi was only available free...

We were very disappointed with this hotel. The location has stunning views and the hotel is way out of date. The bathroom was disgusting with a very old style pre-formed plastic type shower and bath area. The soap dish just about hanging onto the cubicle wall, mould in many places and smelt. The carpets were stained and dirty. No air-conditioning,...

ABC? Anywhere but Copthorne for breakfast anyway. I chose to add breakfast to my accomodation when I booked online - Big Mistake! I thought I would get the option of buffer or al a carte but I didn't- ok I thought buffet it is but what a let down. For $26 I got basically just barely warm full breakfast and...

The rooms are lovely and spacious with large beds. You also get a outdoor balcony with table and chairs. Some rooms have them indoors instead of outside but have patio doors to open if required. The walls are very thin and you can hear people clearly in the corridors in the morning or late at night if your a light...

A large hotel complex in a great location and better if you get a sea view room. The pools are created to look like natural rock pools but were closed for maintenance. We chose 'do not disturb' for our room and housekeeping left us extra towels and loo paper at the door for us which was good. Staff are very...

We were there for one night, the double bed was comfortable and big enough as a king. Room isn't as big as shown on the website, but everything works and heaps of tv channels to choose from. Peaceful location but you do need a car to get to the town center.
