Review of Copthorne Hotel and Resort Bay of Islands
Feb 3, 2015
Excellent location away from busy town centre.
We booked a room with a seaview which was wonderful with views into the Bay and of Russell opposite. It was adjacent to the Waitangi Treaty ground, such an interesting place to visit.
The balcony was a delightful place to sit at any time of the
day with King-fishers singing as they landed on the Palms.
The swimming pool set in rocky landscaping was very pleasant and close to the bar for light lunches.
We booked in here to relax and we were certainly able to do that.
