Pretty much everything is bad. The rooms are shabby and dirty the staff are off hand and don't respond to any problems or issues. The Windows don't open, which is a concern and the fridge only had three legs. In hindsight the window issue obviates the sulphurous emissions from the springs which are only really for those of an olfactory...

The room decor is very outdated (I was expecting much more up to date with the Copthorne name). The front reception area is spacious and nice. The room we had was fine, a few bits and pieces of old receipts/rubbish under beds, behind side drawers etc is why the lower rating for cleanliness. The 4 single chairs in the lounge...

Disappointed in our stay at this hotel, the reception staff let it down from when we arrived ..... couldn't answer a simple question of "is there anywhere in walking distance we can go for dinner?" I was told to look through the pamphlets on the wall! The room was so old and nothing nice about it.... I could hear a...

Room was "half renovated". Newer tv, newer furniture, newer bathroom. However the carpet is old stained and loose and wrinked up on the floor. There are stains on the ceiling. The beds and bedding are old and leave a lot to be desired. Last of all the "free wifi" (one of the reasons I picked the place so I could...

We were pleasantly surprised. From all the bad reviews I had read we were expecting the experience to be a negative one but it wasn't. Check in was quick, staff were very efficient and our room was great - spacious, bright and clean. Bed was comfortable and lovely to have a bath and shower. Recommend.

Front desk staff were initially helpful, allowing us to check in early. Room was tidy, bathroom desperately needed a clean, mildew and build on just about everything in there. The toilet would not stop running without a sharp tap to the cistern. WIFI was expensive, limited and not worth using for the 500mg a day. On getting into bed, the...

A special mention must go to Sunil and his restaurant staff, he provided excellent service. My wife and I weren't staying at the hotel as guest's as we usually stay at a near by hotel. We called in for dinner by chance as the usual restaurant we "used to" go to wasn't open, the food and service were fantastic, we...

On our last night in Rotorua we ate at Jimmy's restaurant at the Copthorn Hotel. We were greeted by Sunil who was very welcoming and informative about the menu. We tried the Chinese taster and was delighted with the choice, delicately flavoured fish, hot spicy chicken, deliciously beef and juicy pork belly, with chinese vegetables and boiled rice. There is...

We were staying in a motel on Fenton and wondering where to go for dinner. Nearly opposite was the Copthorne so we gave it a go. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The menu is very "New Zealand" but the familiar dishes are served with imagination and flair. Braised Pork Belly and Sirloin Steak are standard fare but we...
