“EXCELLENT LOCATION AND GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2010

It was my wife,s birthday when I decided to surprise her . She is very hard working and I wanted to take her away for a couple of nights. After looking at several options I decided to take take her to Pahia. I looked at various options and finally I booked Corpthorne Hotel.

We had a wonderful stay at Corpthorne and my wife was very impressed with the service. We stayed there for 2 nights and on both nights we had our dinner at the buffet restaurant.and we enjoyed the food .

This location of this hotel is excellent with good views and is good value for money.

At $105 a night I was very satisfied with what I got. The pool/spa and outdoor area at the Copthorne is probably one of the best amongst the hotels in Paihia. Plenty of space and gorgeous on a summers day. Nice place for a weekend getaway.

Our room looked out over the bay - the view was fantastic and the location near the Treaty Ground meant that it was easy to take a leisurely walk along the coast. The staff were very helpful, and the room was clean and comfortable. We did not eat dinner at the hotel, but the variety and quality of the food at breakfast were very good.

This hotel is beautifully located and one of the best views of the bay. Very calm and quite surrounding, lot to walk and explore, go fishing or just relax. Food is good, we used room service, little expensive but good food

Wonderful location in Paihia with good views from almost anywhere in the hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. We had a room which faced out onto the grass and overlooked the sea, fabulous view to wake up to. Our room was clean, tidy, adequately equipped and comfortable....perhaps ready for a coat of paint shortly. Breakfast and room service was very good.

We went there with my spouse to take a break from the kids and work and spent 2 nights in there. The views were absolutely superbe and the experience really great.
2 points to note:
I wouldn't however recommend the restaurant as it is rather pricey and not as good as similar places nearby. So, if you stay there, make the effort and go for a walk to try the local restaurants.
Another tip, make sure you request a room on the first floor, as the ground floor rooms are smaller and offer less privacy. (anyone from the garden can enter your room really, while you are having a nap with the door open). Plus, the soundproofing is rather poor, so if you have neighbours above your room, you will know it right away, especially at night.
Otherwise, a magic place and really nice experience.
