We stayed here when we went to the Bay of Islands. It is located in the best possible location and lives up to it's name of resort. Everything was great except for there was no aircon in our room but then I think that how resorts are. The rooms were nice and very clean and had a great view. Totally recommended.

Great value, location and very comfortable. Like a lot of hotels I saw in NZ they look a little dated, but for the money it was brilliant.

The staff at the hotel are superb and take service levels to a greater height than I have ever experienced before. Hats off to a team that make your stay one to be remembered for all the right reasons. Thanks to the Team at the Copthorne.

Unless you are prepared to visit reception in a suit & tie, be prepared for snobbery. Take your own cutlery, as there was nothing in the room - not even a teaspoon to stir the tea/ coffee. You will also need to ask for directions to your room, and don't you dare turn up until it is exactly 2pm, and even then you will be causing hassles. For the price there are much better and more inviting places I have previously stayed at in Paihia

Bathroom was very poor and old for this level of hotel. Pool was nice but the water was not heated.

Very poor standard of service. This is my first ever negative review of a hotel and I have stayed in plenty and am not hard to please. Where do I start? The filthy windows? The cracked glasses? The lack of a basic mini bar? The need to park 300m away and walk through the rain from the 'onsite parking'? The lack of patio furniture on the patio? The mimimalist approach to provision of basic items like ONE teaspoon for 2 guests? I'll stop here as writing this review is making me relive my stay...just AVOID!!!!

Not knowing the whereabouts of the resort, we asked at the main tourist office in Paihia. The kind lady took me into the street and pointed Northwards to a large building occupying a promentory, lamenting that so many tourists asked the same "where is it" question. The resort sits just across a bridge to the north of Paihia and is enormous. The rooms are tastefully decorated to a four star international standard. Breakfast is not included in the tariff and parking was a bit tight , however the quality of the amenities made up for it.

Very good. Surprised that they required a $300.00 bond when we had prepaid and protested about this. Breakfasts good, dinners only so-so.

The bay view rooms, on the ground floor we fantastically close to the water. The food served in the restaurant was good enough to persuade you not to leave the hotel for dinner. The staff are friendly willing to assist with anything. Definitely recommend staying there just for location alone. It is a good 20min walk into Pahia so a car makes it more convenient. There is a free shuttle to and from Pahia as well. For couples, avoid school holidays as there is no separation from younger guests if needed.

Beautifully located in park like grounds in the Bay of Islands. Right next door to the Treaty House. Great swimming pool complex including a hot pool. Food excellent and reasonably priced. Good sized room - all facilities spotlessly clean. All in all very good value for money.
