Copperfield shows its age but service is really good, our unit was prrfectly clean and comfortable. Overall good value for the money. On arrival we found our unit was up a flight of stairs. There was no problem in changing to a ground floor unit to accommodate our creaking knees. The receptionist even offered to help carry our suitcases. Inside,... More

Really excellent service! Lovely staff, who went the extra mile to stay later to let us in when our flight out of Wellington got cancelled. Clean and tidy rooms, free fast wifi and Sky TV! AND a lovely big Spa Bath in the bathroom! Definitely recommend!

Motel is located only a couple of minutes walk to the beach and has a number of cafes etc located nearby. Room was quite spacious, bathroom was very spacious with a shower over a spa bath. Interior was a little dated but fine. Parking area is located beside motel so you can't park right outside the door but that was... More

Free wifi was a bonus and signal strength strong in the rooms had no issues. The hotel is quiet, we stayed with a baby and had no... More

This place is tops, I stay all over the country in motels all over the place. What made me write a review on this place is the pathetic review before mine does not make sense at all as this place is above standards and the norm. The people who run the place are so professional and friendly and make any... More

This hotel has disrespectful owners and is in an exceptionally poor state. The room smelt putrid and it had a dusty/dirty bathroom and room. It was necessary to go and buy some air freshener in order to put up with the odour. All of our clothing had to be washed immediately as the smell seeped into each item we were... More

With regards to your review, You were actually told to vacate the premises as you and your partner were extremely intoxicated and were fighting the whole night as all our guests complained about your behavior the next morning and all of the other guests got no sleep. I find it strange you complain about the smell as this night was... More

We enjoyed our stay but will not stay again.Over priced for what it is and had a bad experience with management over charging.Not happy that our credit card was used for an over site on there part.It was sorted out but should not have happened in the first place.Be careful.

The accommodation was in a higgly piggly mishmash of building right in the heart of the village by the sea. It was an easy walk to cafe's, restaurants, Saturday market and the ocean. Great for families as an awesome park across the road too. HOWEVER - the upstairs accommodation was very cold, grubby in some parts, shower door stained, crumbs... More

When you walk into a motel and the reception reeks of cigarette smoke it doesn't fill you with confidence or high expectations. Unfortunately we were right, the room was filthy. Glass table was covered in dust, kitchen wall was covered in fat , the microwave covered in some orange gunk and the shower caddy had black scum on the inside.... More

We are horrified to read this. I wonder about the reasons for it. Before making decisions on Copperfield from this review, I would suggest that any prospective guest go to the Booking.com reviews, where they only allow totally verified and bona fide guests to review their stays. Booking.com reviews tell a totally different story. More
