“decent accomodation for the right price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

The view from the rooms on the top floor are awesome and well worth the extra money. I recommend this Hotel to everyone who is going to Queenstown for a short stay. I went there with another mate for 4 nights and really enjoyed my stay. Thanks

Room Tip: Ask for a lakeview room otherwise you will have a view of the road!

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment & for once the photos didn't do it justice! A tidy kitchen and comfortable lounge with amazing views were on the ground floor with bathroom & separate toilet. Upstairs a big master bedroom with flat screen TV, balcony and ensuite (shower over bath). Along the hall upstairs another big bedroom with two beds, own bathroom with shower & separate toilet. A portacot was provided with lovely soft bedding for our toddler and their was no noise from other rooms. We were able to watch TV with friends with no worry of waking our son. The staff were helpful. You have to book to use the spa pool which is actually a good idea. I would definitely recommend this place & would use again - especially if you are going to have a few nights in with a toddler and want space to have friends over for dinner/drinks without disturbing them as there's so much room and doors to shut in between living areas. A short walk down the hill or through the Gardens to town. We asked for our room to be made up before we returned on day one so our son's nap wouldn't be disturbed and they happily obliged. Forgot to the next day and missed out on cleaning - our mistake but a good tip to share. Thanks Copthorne!

Stayed here in Aug 13' with my partner & another couple. We got a 2 bedroom apartment on the 4th floor with views overlooking the lake. Our apartment looked recently renovated, and had decent space.

Our king bed was very comfortable, and the pillows just divine - I had no troubles getting to sleep. Kitchen facilities were great - no complaints. Our en-suite didn't have a toilet which would have been nice to have. However there was a shared toilet just outside our rooms (and another downstairs).

The spa was nice, although not as good as the ambiance of the outdoor jacuzzi in Copthorne Resort (which is 5 mins closer to town).

The reception staff were lovely and genuine. There was one time though a burst of activity occurred at the reception desk, and as there was only one staff at the desk at that time - we had to wait 5 mins to retrieve our room keys. (I notice though at other times they may be 2 people staffing reception).

It's 15-20min walk to town (downhill), but there's a bus stop 5 mins walk away (or you can pay $10 taxi).

Unfortunately internet in the room is not free. (we just bought a $20 SIM in town that had 500MB data plan included).

I'd definitely stay here again if I was travelling with 2-3 other people. If I was only travelling with my partner though, I would consider staying Copthorne Resort instead, only because it's 5 mins closer to town.

Room Tip: Top floor, with views of the lake.

we arrived at Copthorne hotel and apartments, we were welcomed very warmly, the staff were great and as we did arrive around 3 hours early for check-in, and our room was ready an hour later, the views are amazing. The facilities are great for what we wanted, spa pool was great and for all you gym junkies the gym is open 24hrs a day, the hotel is around 5 minutes walk from the town centre, I was very pleased with my stay here and would come back again, also thank you to the reception staff you were awesome see you guys next year!!

Room Tip: 2 floor and above for good mountain views.

We stayed here for 6 nights and most accommodation in Queenstown is expensive and this is expensive for what you get as well. We were originally put into a queen room when we booked a twin room so had to go back downstairs and wait about 20-30 minutes for staff to fix the issue. Breakfast was good at $17 for cooked buffet. Be prepared that the hotel is a 10-15 minute walk out of town so if you like being in the hustle and bustle of town this probably isn't for you however we enjoyed the leisurely stroll each time we went into town. Lake & mountain views are outstanding and the hotel rooms were very clean. Overall we had a pleasant stay but a few things need to be worked on before I would rate it 4 stars (internet access, only 1 lift, room keys)

Room Tip: 3rd or 4th level to get good lake views.

On arriving, we were welcomed and given an upgrade .Two families had 2 apartments side by side. Each apartment had 2 bedrooms that were spacious. We had amazing views. Everything was top quality
Would definitely recommend Copthorne

With 3 adults and 2 kids, we found the 2 bedroom apartments to be sensational value. Very spacious over 2 levels with 2 big bedrooms, big living area, good size kitchen and 2 bathrooms, it was reflect for our weeklong stay.

The apartment has 2 terraces overlooking the lake, the heating was good and the rooms very clean. They are very out of date by modern standards and needs an update, but for the money it is excellent value, well located, and very friendly staff. Every staff member we came across was exceptionally friendly.

Restaurant breakfast was good value though a little uninspiring, we did have 2 breakfasts there though and it was quite acceptable.

Stayed July 2013, traveled with family
