Copthorne Hotel & Resort Hokianga
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Omapere
Reviewed January 30, 2012

This hotel is a gem in a wonderful slice of paradise. The north west coast in northland is NZ is wild, untouched and reflect this eco wonderland. The hotel is 4 star and strives to keep this rating. The staff are so friendly and very helpful. The hotel is set up to cater for couples as well as families. It is right on the hokianga harbour and has a swimming pool right in the harbour front. The dining and breakfast rooms all overlook the pool and harbour. The pool is a good size but not many recliners so first in first served. The chef and cooks at this hotel are great. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast. Kids are well catered for re food. I thought the food was good and tasty but a bit limited. However for a nights stay it was fine. I suggest anyone visiting this area they stay. But just be aware of those westerly winds - may make outside dining difficult.

Room Tip: choose the harbour front rooms or apartments. You have direct access onto the beach.

Arrived around midday not expecting room to be ready, but were shown straight away to a nice clean room on the ground floor which opened out onto the lawns and down to the beach. There was a verandah area with shutters and the room was very comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent, with lovely views across to the sand dunes opposite. Breakfast was also very good. The hotel is a bit isolated, it took about 40 minutes to walk into Omapere, but it is a great place to relax and enjoy the scenery.

We were weary when we arrived and wanted to stay several nights.

We inquired about the internet and the front desk person had no idea the costs telling us it was run by a third party. We logged on and were told the system was wireless and not to transmit any sensitive information over it and then it asks for your credit card info--no thanks!

The room was not clean or had not been rented in a long while.The dining room featured a menu with a limited selection and my meal was less than mediocre and at a dear price I might add. When the waiter came and asked how things were I said "terrible" and he smiled and turned away.

We were given a voucher for buffet breakfast that was so-so, after being awaken early with music on an outdoor speaker from the bar blasting our room's direction.

This place does a disservice to the corporate image. The Fodor's book said the service was sketchy and indeed they weren't kidding. Stay away if you want a decent place to relax, we left after one night and were glad to be gone after a lovely walk on the beach nearby. No other restaurants close by that were open and rather a disappointing stop overall.

When I contacted the manager he was full of excuses, certainly not good customer service but he sets the tone for the entire staff and it shows.

We stayed 2 nights at the Copthorne Hokianga, its a delightful situation, very relaxing, our room opened onto a lawn leading down to the waters edge. The meals and service in the dining room were first class.

We had two nights in this Hotel between Christmas and New Year. Two Adults and Two children. We found the room was OK, a little 'tired' but room enough for all four of us. The restaurant meals were very good, with a wide range to choose from and range of prices. The Kids meals were very good value. The Breakfast Buffet was a highlight for all of us. Staff were friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a relaxed, peacefull get away them Omapere is the place. Stunning views and very tranquil.

Room Tip: You can get rooms right on the beach

We stayed here one night in conjunction with our evening tour Footprints Waipoua. Hotel worked well with this tour. We were able to order an early dinner before the tour, which lasted from 6pm - 10pm. Food was delicious and we could see out over the water and sand dunes. Rooms were not luxurious, but they were more than adequate. This area is not as visited as other areas in the north of the North Island, but we enjoyed it and we recommend it if you have time.

Room Tip: Waterview is nice.
