Great service. Hallways to conference rooms on level 7 are very narrow. A couple of times we had to back-up to allow people with strollers past. Staff were very pleasant. Room service was unbelievably fast. Conference room (Pencarrow) was cleared out after day 1 or our 2 day session and we lost all our notepads & notes from the whiteboard... More

Nice stay. Friendly staff. Room was well presented. Room service was good. Like the emphasis on not over servicing unless required. Great location to the city and easy drive to airport. Great spot to run along the beach.

The Copthorne Hotel Oriental Bay Wellington does not represent the Copthorne Brand well. The staff while all very pleasant appear to be overworked and not enough of them for the number in our group the weekend we stayed at the hotel. Several of us had key problems and had to return to reception to get them reactivated. The decor is... More

Lovely stay. Well done team at this hotel. Would recommend to all. Warm and cosy with great views. The location is great so close to the city. Although there own restaurant is wonderful so no need to visit the CBD. Great food. Well done again.

Everything about this hotel was great - the location, rooms, service. The stand out however was the buffet breakfast - by far the best we've had in many years. A wide range of fresh food, some different items than the usual fare - homemade yoghurt and pancakes were great. We were there on Fathers Day & it was very busy... More

Great views! We were on the 1st floor in a 3 bedroom apartment. The King bed room was a good size, but the two twin bedded rooms were a little small. It had a large bathroom with bath/shower and a half bath. The living room was nice with a tiny (walk out) balcony. We had breakfast in 180 restaurant which... More

stayed here for a conference, was a fairly quick trip from the airport, taxi was about $35 NZ, the staff are very welcoming at check in, rooms very clean, the beds comfy as too, good views if you have a harbor view room.

Location was great. Staff very friendly and helpful. We asked for Porta cot and it was ready when we checked in. Dinner food was great and we enjoyed breakfast. Weather was beautiful as well. Bar had a good selection of drinks and Tapas menu which was ranging from $7-$15

Good sized room for two. The breakfast has a great selection. The staff were friendly and helpful. My only comment would be, limited movie options on the TV. These days I would expect to be able to choose from more than one movie channel. Improved in room entertainment would be the icing on the cake. The hotel parking is pricy... More
