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

Ate at the hotel buffet for dinner, since shuttle service to town stops at 5:30. Some okay salad, the rest average to awful. Avoid it .

We had an enjoyable stay but missed not having aircon in room and especially needed in function room. Staff were very pleasant and helpful and shuttle into town every hour was great as we didn’t have a car. We would stay there again.

Good hotel with poor quality accommodation. The rooms are small., old and no a/c just a ceiling fan. Draw the curtains at night and no ventilation. Clean and friendly just a pity the accommodation is poor.
