Copperfield Seaside Motel
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Paraparaumu
Reviewed October 20, 2012

This is a convenient location, walking distance to beach, restaurants and shops. The room was funky. Seemed like they tried to update it recently, but chose really outdated decor. The front of the room had a full wall of windows and was ground floor. To have privacy, it was necessary to close all of the draperies, which made it drab and dark inside. The window in the bathroom also had a view into neighboring apartments. It was fine for one night's stay and was convenient.

There was a great little family-run pizza shop across the street

Great location just off the beach at Paraparaumu. Very close to the beach shopping centre, 30 seconds and you are there.
Very helpful in the office.
Perhaps getting a bit tired, but very comfortable
If you whatnot go further afield and eave your car behind there is a very regular bus service right outside

Room Tip: We had an upstairs room, good outlook over the shops toward the beach

We were disappointed with our stay. I don't know how the accomodation can be described as 'elegant'. More like cheap and tacky and in need of a serious upgrade. Horrible decor and the unit we were in did not look at all like the pictures on their website. Worst of all upon arrival there were little black hairs in the bathroom sink, the rubbish hadn't been emptied and there was old milk in the fridge. The excuse from the owners were that they had just got back from holiday the night before and hadn't been able to check the unit yet - even though we checked in at 3pm the next day. Pure laziness if you ask me and not worth the $145 we paid! The spa bath also ran out of hot water which was disappointing.

At one street from the beach and shops with bus stop outside, this motel is well placed. Room was clean and recently refreshed. I stayed in the spa unit. The spa/ bathroom had 2 windows which the exterior stairs went next to. Although windows frosted could see people coming and going - was not sure what they could see in!
Room very noisy at night with close by late night restsurant patrons. Also every movement of above occupants could clearly be heard.

Spent one night here, it was perfect. We parked the car and were able to walk everywhere. The people managing the motels were very friendly and helpful. We were able to leave our car in the carpark for another night whilst we went to Kapiti Island. The motel was clean and tidy.

This is a hidden wee gem, with great service and value for money. The rooms have all that is needed for a romantic weekend getaway, with the spa bath and close proximity to a great Italian Restaurant. Although the noise of over zelous patrons can be heard at times late into the night, if in the front units, the place is well worth the stay. The reception staff are extremely helpful including setting up romantic surprises if asked. I have stayed here numerous times, as it is our wee romantic getaway hideaway.
Recommend it to anyone who wants a nice romantic place to stay that isn't overpriced.

Having travelled extensively in New Zealand and around the world, I was appalled by the unfriendly staff and unbelievably optimistic price range of The Copperfield Seaside Motel.
Expecting at the very least a quiet and clean place to spend the night I was horribly disapointed. Adjacent to a busy restaurant the noise carried on well into the early hours and finding blood on the bed was the icing on the cake. Appalling in every respect.
