We had a pleasant and comfortable stay at the Copthorne Hotel Wellington Oriental Bay. We took advantage of a winter special and had a superior room in the Bay Wing (overlooking the beautiful Oriental Bay) for the price of a standard room - that made it good value. We did have an issue over something, which the hotel duty manager... More

I had a lovely stay at the Copthorne in Wellington. Everyone was extremely helpful, friendly and I even mentioed to them that they were performing "psychic service" as they seemed to know what I needed before I did! Awesome! I will not hesitate to choose the Copthorne for my next trip. Thank you! :)

Stopped here for just a night whilst on business in the city but had been here within the last 2 years. Good reception service - quick and efficient both upon arrival & departure. I liked the bowl of fresh Granny Smith apples on the counter and that there was no hassle over making a deposit at booking in. The room... More

We love coming here every time we visit the capital. Although over the years our experience has been sometimes great and sometimes a little disappointing, we come back for the impregnable views, delightful buffet breakfast and great rooms. As is unfortunately often the case in luxury hotels (and not just in New Zealand) the staff sometimes seems to think they... More

Beautiful room, beautiful view over the harbour, top service all for a very reasonable price. Room service menu is quite pricey but has lots of variety. Extremely comfy bed!! Would definitely recommend :)

We stayed overnight with our 2 kids in a single room with the bathroom separating the kingsize bed and 2 single beds. The room was a decent size, clean and comfortable beds. Staff were very welcoming, took an interest in what we were up to and if we needed any advice. Buffet breakfast was fresh and a good range of... More

Until last night my experience of Copthorne Oriental Bay was visiting my friend who would consistently stay there when she was in town. Even as a visitor I always received a friendly welcome from staff and knew I liked the location and decor. This hotel really has everything you'd want for your stay in Wellington: friendly staff, classy and comfortable... More

I've been staying in various places on business in Wellington and I found this one the best value & service. Got a lovely room overlooking the harbour. I love how you can have a shower and still see the harbour (without anyone else seeing you). Staff were very helpful from the reservation to the checkout. The pool is on the... More

Right from the beginning the visit started with a friendly smile and nothing was to much trouble. Even the household staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was comfortable, clean and the views fantastic. What really sold me was the food at 180 degree restaurant. A foodies paradise. A real pleasure from beginning to end and would match any...
