Copthorne Hotel and Resort Queenstown Lakefront4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed here for two nights before heading out on the Routeburn track. It was perfect, big room to allow our suitcases to explode as we packed and repacked. It's within walking distance to the center of town where we would head for dinners and last minute camping gear. We liked being outside of the center of town a bit because we found it quieter and calm. Getting a lake view room is definitely worth it. Very nice staff, but skip the hotel brunch in favor of restaurants in town.
Postcard view from our room onto the lake. The room was clean and comfortable.
We stayed here as we arrived to Queenstown a day earlier than expected. The lobby/restaurant area looks fantastic, the staff was helpful, if not always cheerful. The room however felt cheap and smelt of smoke. Unfortunately since the booking was last minute we paid the highest rate for our two week trip and this was our least favorite stay. The laundry facilities are reasonable and the courtyard is nice the rooms could use some tidying. There were gaps in the bathroom drywall, clearly old carpet and the musky smoke smell I mentioned.
Great views, large rooms, very welcoming and easy walk to the main attractions in town. Super friendly staff and private jacuzzi for use.
No fan in bathroom. Free wifi is only 20min/24hours. Sound isolation not very good, we can hear people coughing in the next room.
The staff is great at the hotel. The view definatly depends on your room (some look into the courtyard) My biggest complaint is that wifi is not free in all rooms. You get 20 mins complimentary in the lobby (wich I used to book my second night on the Orb___ for 50$ cheaper than the front desk quoted me) That's not a joke or a plug. I was just impressed with Orb__. Over all the local is good not in the middle of the "mall city" but close enogh to walk to.
After reading various opinions, mainly positive, I decided to stay at this hotel and pay a little more for a lake view room. The hotel was well located, the lobby and room were very nice, and it was good value for the money given the high prices for mediocre motels in New Zealand. The lake view room had a beautiful view, and other than having to park my car on the street (not much of a hassle, really), and 20 minutes of free internet in the lobby only, I have no real complaints. I would stay here again, no question.
