Positioned right on the water at Oriental Bay, this hotel is within easy walking distance of Te Papa museum, the great shopping and restaurants of Cuba Street, and Wellington CBD. The rooms are well equipped and the beds are sumptuously comfortable. Service was efficient and friendly and the in house restaurant had a great breakfast. I'd stay here again.

I stayed at the Copthorne Oriental Bay for a work conference at Te Papa Museum. The hotel is a bit of a walk away from the city end but offers great business facilities and accommodation options if you need to be at the museum end. I stayed in the harbour view room which is spacious and provides all the amenities....

Good location - close to CBD, Te Papa, etc. Rooms are well fitted out and clean. Even though in the Windy City, rooms were quiet and not drafty. Staff were friendly and helpful. Didn't use the swimming pool this time - but have previously - it's good, though feeling a bit dated decor wise. Overall worth a stay.

We had a great stay at the Copthorne. Unfortunately their family room was being refurbished however the staff obligingly gave us an extra rollaway so we could fit our three children in. Breakfast had some good choices, although the eggs were a bit jellied (maybe egg powder?) and didn't taste all that good. Lots of other hot choices, bread, pastries,...

Service was above and beyond expectations, helping us book passage to South Island and be sure a car was waiting for us. Accommodation were excellent, and it was nice to be in Oriental Bay with fabulous views of Wellington harbor.

If you're in Wellington and want a great hotel with panoramic views over the harbour... then this is your place. Oriental Bay, where the hotel is located, is one of Wellington's great areas with bars and cafes and only a 5-10 walk to the city area....
