Easy to get to, valet parking was very efficient, car waiting for me next morning when I went to check-out. The Restaurant was excellent, the food very nice and the service friendly and efficient. The room was comfortable, bathroom very good and views from the harbourside room were fantastic.

We had a choice of staying here or the Museum Hotel and we decided that Copthorne would have a better view of the harbour and city. The staff were bubbly and friendly, the room was clean, the bed comfortable and the views were stunning. The only issue we did have, was that the lip on the shower floor wasn't high...

The room was great- spacious, clean and relaxing. Bed was amazingly comfortable, and the room was on the Oriental Parade side of the hotel so the view of the harbour was awesome. Staff were friendly and helpful. Cons included a bed that was made up with sheets that were too small (came untucked every night) and the bathroom is the...

We enjoyed the stay. Bed was comfortable but not the best. Service staff was first rate. Close by shopping and short taxi ride to all tourist spots. We stayed on the tenth floor which required an elevator change on the seventh floor - where the one80 restaurant located. Only 30 minutes of free wifi in lobby area per day.
