Nice spot for a conference. Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are dated and worn. Could definitely stand to be refurbished.

The breakfast spread was continental and filling. Many varieties of fruits and bread. Along with coffee and tea we had juices too

We had the Friday night buffet as part of our tour package and it had the worst selection, quality and temperature of food possible. Do not eat here under any circumstances.

Only stayed one night. Upgraded to a room with 2 double beds which was nice. Quiet and nice view of river from window. Couldn’t sit on chairs on balcony as wet from raining . Breakfast was added extra so opted out for that.

This hotel is situated about 2km out of the town, with an hourly shuttle bus or a 30 minute walk. This was the most comfortable of all the hotels we stayed at in New Zealand, with lovely gardens, an outdoor pool and a private beach....More

We enjoyed everything about this hotel except that there was no air conditioning. It was a hot 2 days and the fan just didn't quite cool things off enough

We stayed 2 nights at the Copthorne Hotel. This is a low rise complex spread over a large area about a mile outside the resort Paihia. The staff are friendly and we were loaned a travel adaptor at reception. The rooms are a little dated...More

Most of the staff are pleasant. Had a snarly woman in breakfast buffet who was curt and rude when 6-7 diners were waiting ages to have toasters fixed, no customer service at all. Food was average but not hold, FOOD SAFETY is an issue here....More
