I have used the Copthorne more than any other hotel. Service was excellent and I am quite happy with it. However, rooms have insufficient drawer space for an extended stay, the lifts still seem to be an issue, and I was disappointed to find two of my favourite features gone i.e. the little paper and souvenir shop and the little coffee and snack cafe inside the entrance.

Dear Wotif Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you enjoyed your most recent stay with us. I appreciate your feedback regarding the souvenir shop and cafe and I am sorry for any disappointment caused. The shop was a partner of the hotel and moved out of the premises. The cafe is temporarily in another area of the hotel but will return to the lobby bigger and better in due course. Thank you for the feedback. I look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind regards Ben, General Manager
