I have stayed at this hotel a number of times now and highly recommend it. Most rooms have a great view of the harbour and it is generally very comfortable and good value for money. It is also relatively quiet. I did find this time that the room I booked online had a relatively restricted view (for this hotel -... More

Chose this hotel based on its proximity to Courtney place and for its views of Wellington Harbor. It ticked all the boxes for a weekend away to celebrate my birthday with friends as well as my partner. Service was great and anything that we asked for was made available to us. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a... More

Had a weekend away at the Copthorne Oriental Bay and it was great. We know now to pay a bit extra and get a deluxe room - we have stayed here a few times and never been disappointed. Meals were good, service was good and our room fantastic with great views. A few comments: Oriental Bay is not in the... More

Sometimes mum likes to get away. Old age has limited mum's mobility to staying at home most days. So any opportunity she has to take a ride in the car she relishes with much enthusiasm. Needless to say travelling and a change of scenery is always going to be a highlight in mum's otherwise sedate life. Anyhoo, mum and I... More

Stayed here for 3 nights while attending a conference at Te Papa. It was lovely. I think because I booked some sort of "Kids and All' deal on booking.com I got a slightly odd room layout with twin beds when you first walk in, then the bathroom, then another room (no door separating from kids area) with queen bed and...

I love waking up to the views and having a cuppa with the doors open. Always plenty to watch over looking the busy Oriental Parade activities and harbour. The higher levels provide a quieter environment and the room service meals are excellent.

Dear hamef01 I enjoyed your review and tip on getting a harbour view. We do sell fresh air through our opening balcony doors here at the Copthorne Oriental Bay. I agree it is a wonderful way to start the day. I look forward to welcoming you back again. More

I had to find an hotel reasonably close the the airport after Air New Zealand cancelled my flight nearly at midnight. They refused to provide accommodation and I had to do myself. I booked a room through Booking.com and I took a taxi to the hotel. When I checked in just after midnight the front desk attendant had already my... More

Had to spend a night here on business. it was great...harbour view with small balcony, comfy bed and great decor and cleanliness. I was a little disapointed with the fact there was no bath (as I dont have one at home!) but it wasnt a biggie and shower was fabulous.

Dear JaniceBJ Thank you for choosing to stay with us for your one night in Wellington. We appreciate you posting your feedback, the rooms are quite due to the hush glass we have on the windows and balcony doors. I look forward to you returning in the future. More
