              • Older travelers
                7.8

                Great location next to the Treaty Grounds. Nice pool and garden area.

                Overpriced. Free wifi is limited to only 20 minutes a day. No air conditioning, and we needed it. (They supplied a fan!) Big-city pricing on food. I guess they get away with those prices, but I was expecting a lot more room for the money.

              • Group of friends
                7.0

                Location, great bar staff, architecture/pool area, surrounding countryside.

                Didn't stay long enough!

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                The parking and access to free WiFi for 20 minutes was appreciated. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about local amenities and travel opportunities on local boat and bus companies.

                Our room on the sunny side was left with curtains open and when we arrived it was difficult to cool the room with only a ceiling fan and a standing fan. We didn't get the room cool until the next day and then as we left the curtains closed the room remained cooler.

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                awesome stay for me and my family and friends ! excellent food and waitresses . costumer service at the front desk was top notch . thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the copthorne

                spa and pools could be warmer during the colder season

              • Single
                7.8

                Very annoyed that the hotel now charges a surcharge for using a credit card. This is just being cheap.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                We have stayed many times at the hotel and have always had wonderful service in the most beautiful surroundings. We bring all of our overseas visitors to stay at the Copthorne also previously when the hotel was named The Waitangi. I wouldnt stay anywhere else in the Bay of Islands.

                Nothing to report, all perfect, thank you. :)

              • Couple
                8.8

                very good service, big room. and $100 is really cheap as a 4- star hotel. I like it

                The hotel room is kind of poor. No LCD tv. It's an old room.

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                The casual and relaxed atmosphere of the complex. Friendly and helpful staff

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                Staff friendly and helpful. Ambience clean.

                Not sophisticated enough. Expected better for the price. Bathroom poor, needs renovating. Not enough seating by the pool. Wine poor quality. Food average.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                From the time we arrived to departure we could not have asked for more. The room facing the bay was superb and with the small conservatory was just right. While we didn't need the room serviced for such a short stay, the front desk, bar and dining service was very friendly and efficient.

                Paying a bond is a bit annoying, can understand why but perhaps we should be told that it will only be debited to our Credit Card if we cause damage and that it will be cancelled quickly after booking out.Perhaps this could be printed on the receipt.

              • Couple
                7.4

                Great location for waitangi treaty grounds and walking distance to great cafe and Shippey's fish and chups restaurant

              • Couple
                5.8

                We liked the location and the venue for the dairy industry awards was good.

                We feel that the rooms definitely need air conditioning. This was our 2nd stay within 15 months and we stayed in different wings on different sides. Both times we have felt that the rooms are a little 'tired' looking and lacking in air con. The layout of the bathroom this time was strange also in that the bathroom was too small and the handbasin was actually outside the bathroom.

              • Single
                8.8

                Room view was wonderful, atmosphere in and around hotel was good. All facilities were well maintained and clean

                No assistance offered or given with my luggage when I arrived. Disappointing as travelling on my own.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Lovely peaceful location, good atmosphere, spacious reception area, friendly, helpful staff

                Wondered if guests could be offered an upgrade there was plenty of spare, spacious rooms or rooms with a view. (as there was the weekend we we were there.) Door to room closed very noisily. Spa could have done with a 'shade/rain' sail. Carparks not well lit. (the ones further away from reception.)

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Enjoyed walks, visit to Russell, history of area. After a hard day sightseeing relaxing in the outdoor spa. Very relaxing stay.

                There are no changing rooms near pool complex, bit of a trek from our room.
