We were only there one night & didnt eat in the hotel. Could easily have stayed longer! Close to Te Papa and lots of cafes and restaurants around. The central shopping area is easy walking distance. Oriental Bay is a really great spot.

We arrived in Wellington in the rain, tired from several days of fun and adventure on the North Island. The staff gave us a very warm greeting and upgraded our room to a family suite so we (3 adults) could have space and comfort. It was a wonderful place to spend our last night. No problem making our early flight...

I've stayed here twice in the past two years. This place it great for location cleanliness, and food. They have rooms with separate areas for families, and the views of the harbour are excellent. Quick walk out the back and you're on your way up Mount Victoria, or head out the front and left for Courtney, Peter Jackson's Theatre, and...

Great location of hotel, beautiful views of the harbour. Didn't eat at the restaurant, but menu looked delicious. Room was comfortable for a quick overnight stay, not over roomy. Nice cafe next door. Easy walk to Te Papa.

It was just an overnight stay for us but would have liked to stay longer! We booked a family room which suited us very well. I was the lucky one in the king size bed and mother and daughter were in the two single beds. I was impressed with the layout with the two single beds separated from the kingside...

Sitting across Oriental Bay, this hotel is located 5 min walk from Te Papa and easy to walk to other city attraction as well . We were grateful that they kindly allowed us to check in early in the morning and gave us a seaview room. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful . Just a small part we think it could...

Great place to stay in Wellington with easy access to Oriental Parade for a walk by the harbour in the morning. Views to the harbour from the spacious rooms and very comfortable bars. Easy walk to Te Papa and Courtney Place and easy access from airport by taxi. Highly recommend this hotel if you're a visitor to Wellington and want...

My first impression of this hotel was that while it was clean and bright and the reception staff were very friendly, was that it was somewhat dated. Our room on the 4th floor was directly outside the lift but there was no noise from the lift. The room was of a good size with a very comfortable bed. The sliding...

Located well on the waterfront. The restaurant had some nice oysters and steak. The room was comfortable enough but you do hear a bit of noise from people in the corridor and in the adjacent room. OK but will try a different place next time.

This was my first stay at Copthorne branded hotel. The room with a city view was functional, although the bathroom was quite small. The hotel didn't have a single international news channel. Not even CNN. What's up with these $10 charges for 500MB of internet? We are not in the 1990's anymore based on my calendar.
