Good location and decent hotel

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Nov 2023
Good hotel, nice spacious room with large bathroom and powerful shower. View of the lake was gorgeous. The room was clean and staff were helpful and welcoming. Decor is a bit dated. Location is nice fot Queenstown, either 10 min walk or slightly longer if you take the scenic route beside the lake.

Overall, the stay in the Junior Suite was pleasant, even if a few items stated to be in the room were missing (i.e. hairdryer). The suite had lovely lakeside views and was very quiet. When requested, the rooms were serviced to a high standard and cleaned thoroughly.

Room service was very quick on the weekday evening we ordered. The one evening we went to the in-house restaurant, there was a 45-minute delay between the entrees and the mains, which was not explained.

Car parking was available at an extra charge.

Hi Relax120707073247
Thank you for the review of your stay, we will look into you comment about the hairdryer as we do have these in our rooms and we certainly could have provided one for you. Great that you liked the quiet location and the view from the suite.

To start off with the “king” beds are just 2 single mattresses placed side by side. Our deluxe king room is tiny there are no kitchen amenities, tiny fridge, and things have gone missing from our room

Hi Dream48598484523
Thank you for reviewing your stay. The King beds in the hotel are a Split Super King Size bed which zip together and can be configured as either a king bed or 2 single beds. The rooms do have tea and coffee making facilities but not a kitchen, sorry if you were not aware of this at the time of booking your room. If you contact the hotel directly with details of your missing things this can be followed up on for you.

Not that impressed. The view of the lake from my room was stunning, but the carpets were worn and paint was peeling from the doorframe. I had to step over the worn carpet as there were sharp areas. Some of the lights over the desk were not working. The toilets were not cleaned daily, and coffee cups were not always washed. WIFI was sluggish, which made it very slow to get any work done from my room.
Location is excellent though - a close walk to city center.

Room tip: It’s okay, but it could probably drop a star.

Large hotel style rooms, shower in bath. Clean and warm with oil heaters. Staff were very helpful with any enquiries. Block 3 has excellent views over the lake towards the mountains.
The hotel is a good uphill walk (10-15 minutes) from the centre of town. Paths are well lit and you can take an easier walk thru the park. Very safe even at night.
Do not mix up with other Copthorne units and apartments. That is further out of town with lots of roadworks outside.

Room tip: Level 4 great views in block 3.

Copthorne Hotel & Resort Queenstown is huge. Our tour group was spread throughout the complex. I ended up on the same floor as their restaurant and had a partial view of Lake Wakatipu if I crammed my head a certain way. The room was large and comfortable with a fridge and complementary toiletries. There is no a/c in the room but luckily it was raining when we arrived, thus a bit cool. The lobby is gigantic with seating across of the reception area to wait for your tour bus/van and at the opposite end with a mountain view. It is about 10 minutes downhill to town were there is an abundance of eating establishments and shops. Breakfast was ok- same choices as all the other hotels.

Hi 808giggles
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on your stay with us. The hotel does have a large footprint making the most of the views, while still close to the town center. Sounds like you enjoyed your time with us in Queenstown.
