Just what you'd expect from a large chain hotel. Staff were helpful and pleasant, room (2013) was a good size for three, comfortable and had a fine view of the lake and mountains. No air con tho'. Breakfast was good and a reasonable price but of course, price is subjective. Experienced some connection difficulty with wi-fi in room but used public areas instead. There was some noise in corridor from early risers going on coach trips . The hotel caters for many coach parties. The Copthorne Lakeside is within easy walking distance of the town centre. Heading into town is all downhill. Coming back, it is a steep climb for those not at their fittest. Queenstown has lots of great restaurants so we didn't eat dinner at the hotel. We enjoyed our stay.
Bungy is great! Helicopter flight to Remarkables not worth money - too weather dependant. Gondola - great views - as good as helicopter trip and much cheaper! SS Earnshaw trip - very
pleasant. Arrowtown is an interesting place. Splendid all day trip to Doubtful Sound even although it's a long coach journey. Ferburger for lunch and you may not need dinner! Recommend 'Sosso' and 'Flame' for dinner
