Copthorne Hotel and Resort Hokiana
Left the Rydges Hotel to pick up hire car. Very nice blue Mitsubishi. Needed to be quite big for all our luggage. Set the sat nav to get out of the City and onto Hokianga. Stopped off at Kauri Museum. Nice museum with history about the Kauri (prounounced) Cody trees. The examples of the wood were exquisite. Well worth the stop. Onto the Copthorne Hotel and resort. If you can manage to get a beachfront apartment you are lucky as they looked lovely. We were at the back with no view. But hey you probably pay a premium for a better view.
The room was well equipped but oh no there was no air-con and it was hot hot hot. We asked for fan but oh dear they didn’t have any. Perhaps the weather was better than usual.
The room could do with some tlc. Cobweb cleaning etc. Otherwise fine for 1 night.
Beautiful beach. The pool looked very inviting but we didn’t have time as we were being picked up for our tour early.
Out in the evening for the Twilight Footprints tour.
