Stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment for 3 nights. Great location, easy walking distance to many attractions, shops, restaurants. Our unit was on first floor directly above reception, so was a little noisy and had a limited harbour view. Didn't get off to a good start to our stay, as our room was not available upon check-in, which staff seemed... More

Couldn't have asked for more! Great location near Te Papa and the Courtney Place restaurants, excellent view of the city and harbour, very friendly & helpful staff (they have to be the most professional I've ever experienced in NZ) and a room perfectly suited to our needs. We had a superior twin which comprised of the unusual but great set... More

The location is excellent with amazing views and very close to town and many attractions are within a short drive. The parking at the hotel is rather expensive and it is cheaper to park on the street. The staff in the restaurant were very friendly and always greeted us warmly. The room we had had an amazing view of the... More

Stayed one night only. We arrived in a hire car and where immediately helped with the luggage to our room, which was very comfortable with views of the harbour. Reception arranged for a Taxi the night before our early flight. We were too early at 4am at reception, but rather then letting us wait for the ordered Taxi, the staff... More

The Copthorne was a very ncie place to stay. Lovely restuarant and bar, clean rooms and friendly staff. The only rude awakening we received was the fire alarm going off at 1.30am early hours Saturday morning. We were evacuated for about half an hour but other than that, great.

Stayed one night for business. Had a fantastic sleep in a bed that envelops you. It was like having a fluffy duvet underneath as well as on top. Perfect for a cold, rainy, winter night in Wellington! Staff were lovely too. Would definitely stay again.

Good location, not far from centre. Very clean and comfortable room. Staff were very friendly and helpful when we were late getting there. Rooms were quiet enough. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment. Happy with stay

Spent a quick one night in Wellington - my expectations where exceeded. This hotel offers amazing value for money - and is in such a fantastic location - right on oriental parade (can't beat it) and in easy walking distance to all the places in the city centre. Really comfortable bed, great views and even better service. Will definitely visit... More

We only spent one night and specifically chose the Copthorne because of its good value, the standard of its rooms and service and its close proximity to the airport. We weren't disappointed. Service was great and rooms were spotless. Really liked the family room concept as well.
