We have stayed at the Copthorne on numerous times over the years. We have always been lucky and have had lakeview rooms, if not allocated them, we ask for one. We have stayed with family in a triple a couple of times. This visit we had our adult daughter and we chose the Copthorne because it has larger rooms. Some other hotels in Queenstown have very small rooms.It is also handy to just park the car and walk down to the main centre of town.
We were thrilled when we eventually found our room to discover we had been allocated a suite with Lake view. The suite was warm, well appointed, comfortable beds and a large bathroom with spa and great shower.
One minus though was the state of the wood work in the entrance of the room. Some attention needed, this is a fault of quite a number of hotels.
Breakfast was included in the rate, the range was extensive from the buffet, service a little slack from the staff.The original part of the hotel was buit in the mid 1970's with the newest part built in the late1980's.
We have stayed in both areas and have always found the rooms warm, well furnished. The dining room could do with refurbishing though, still a dark 1970 Alpine look to it, not in keeping with the rest of the hotel decor.
Staff ,as with most Queenstow hotels, is a mini UN which can result in variable service standards.
With such a nice suite, we were reluctant to leave,wishing that we were able to stay longer. With the hotel have been built then added onto plus being built down a hillside, it can take some time to find your room and also to get lost within the hotel, but that can be part of the fun!
They still keep the old tradition of NZ Hotels, the free morning newspaper.
No doubt we will stay at the Copthorne again in the future.
