We spent an idyllic four nights at the Copthorne Paihia, Bay of Islands, NZ last week. We are from the south of NZ where winter is COLD. The North of NZ where Paihia is, is almost tropical and lovely to visit in our winter as its insanely busy in summer. The whole of the Bay of Islands is the most beautiful place in the whole of our very beautiful country. The Copthorne is a huge resort hotel complex which harks from the days when the state owned such places and money was not spared. It has long sine been privately owned but it still has the solidity and comfort associated with the govt. ownership years. The staff are very international these days, very tourist orientated and very professionally friendly and obliging. The rooms are big and well appointed and the facilities are all there. We chose a bay view room which is more expensive but well worth it. Simply beautiful with the bay right outside the bayside window and there is a door that side to which means you can take the 10 or so steps down to the beach straight from your room. The restaurant menu is a bit restricted.
