This hotel is the place to stay if you want a great view of the water. It is a good place to see the Bay of Islands. First of all, we arrived in the afternoon into a very hot room. Unfortunately there is no air conditioning making staying the room almost unbearable! We immediately opened the windows and got the...

Room was pretty "hotel" classic and is in need of bathroom upgrades...but your not there to sit in your room. Has a great swimming pool that appears to be set in a rocky area....very nice looking. A large grassy area to set-up a chair or lay on the grass. e had an ocean view room and it was spectacular, very...

Having stayed at the Copthorne in Auckland (See review) we arrived at reception with some trepidation. However, whilst not in the first flush of youth this hotel was in a different league. We had booked a harbour view room and this was an inspired choice because the view from our ground floor window was spectacular. Our three-day stay was all...

The premium room with sea views had the most comfortable bed. Everything you needed was there, the pool was a bit cool for me in the evening but the spa pool was a good temperature. We had a great guy behind the bar that gave excellent service in the evening. The breakfast was a great spread and the reception staff...

My wife and I are on a three week road trip around New Zealand and had driven from Auckland to the Bay of Islands. The Copthorne was recommended to us as an option by our previous hotel. Never too sure where we will be one night to the next we tend not to book ahead. Located right next to the...

We spent 3 nights here at the start of our holiday in NZ. The hotel has all the facilities you would expect but the real plus is its location right on the grounds of the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. The restaurant provides a variety of meals and it is possible to have a lighter meal served in the gardens although this...

Stayed here for two nights and the view was beautiful but it was hot and the hotel does not have air conditioning. I'm sure it is usually not a problem with the breeze from the water but that requires having your door open and getting noise from the neighbors. Would not recommend the restaurant, we were all very disappointed for...

Myself and 2 family members stayed and the room was very comfortable. The view from the balcony with the sun rise was amazing. Close to the Waitangi ground as that was the reason we were there. Will stay longer next time.

We enjoyed our stay here. The staff were good and the room was spacious, modern and clean. The hotel is really big and was pretty full when we were here so it was harder to find a park. We'd happily stay here again. Out by the sea was really nice and the swimming pool was pretty cool.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights which we got on a good deal from away to go. The rooms are nice comfortable and the location is good close to shops and situated on Waitangi land. We had a harbour view room. The view was ok and the deck was a nice addition although parking is a bit...
