We spent 2 nights here with our AAT Kings tour. Breakfast and dinner meals were excellent. Staff was always very helpful. Our room was large, clean, and comfortable. The Hotel has large grounds, great for an evening stroll on the beach. There is lots to see and do in the area while based here.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights during June, really nice hotel which felt spacious. We had a ground floor rooom overlooking the tennis courts. The room was clean and of a good size. We ate here one night in the restaurant and another evening we had a bar meal, both of good quality. The breakfast was also good.The grounds are well kept with lovely views over the bay. There is also an outside pool with a hot jacuzzi. The staff were helpful and the hotel runs a shuttle bus into town, ( it is a good 20 minute walk). There is a pathway direct to the treaty grounds which is well worth a visit.

Room tip: There are rooms with views over the bay

We spent a couple of nights here under a great deal obtained through an information center. The deal included 2 nights accommodation, breakfast, Waiting entry, as well as the Russell ferry and bus tour.
The room was very comfortable with a great bed. The staff were helpful and courteous. Our only drawback was the shower over a bath, and lack of water pressure.
However would stay here again.

Stayed at the Copthorne in a beautiful little place called Waitangi in the middle of a very cold winter for most of New Zealand. Accommodation was organised as part of a conference at the hotel and I came away thoroughly satisfied with the experience. Food was excellent, room was toasty, cozy and warm with an outstanding view, service was the best and the staff couldn't do enough for us. Lovely people and a most beautiful location. Great place to retreat to. Has all the feelings of a tropical island with much cooler temperature!

Stayed for one night at this hotel with my partner and two friends. We had two separate rooms (724 and 726) which were both delightful. The grounds are amazing with a pool and a hot tub. We did not use the pool as it was cold but we used the hot tub which is kept at 28 degrees. The hot tub was lovely but did smell a bit. We also ate at the hotel and the food was not only good value for money but very tasty as well. We had an exceptional waiter as well. The only downside to the hotel was we were woken up by some very loud children quite early in the morning - it may have been a school trip. This is not the hotel's fault, but we would've appreciated being told at check in so we could've prepared for the early morning wake up call. Nevertheless, we would be more than happy to return to this lovely hotel. Top tip, if you go into the local town of Paihia, there is a little restaurant towards the top of town called Alfresco's. We had a drink there in the afternoon and they offer a service of dropping you back to the Copthorne Hotel which was so nice of them.

Good Afternoon. Thank you for providing feedback about your stay with us. I shall pass on the specific points mentioned in your review. The hotel did not have any school groups in over your stay so as it was school holidays this noise would have been down to families enjoting time off. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to welcome you back in the future. Warm Regards, Matthew Hambly, Rooms Division Manager.
