My parents really liked the view here. They said it was clean and comfortable. I booked through booking.com as it was about 17 dollars cheaper. Shame the parking isn't included, but is available for 28 dollars on site, though admittedly parking in Wellington City is pretty hard to arrange regardless. Only thing I didn't like was the receptionist Kenny kept... More

We got a lovely Bay View room on the 8th floor on request. Very spacious and comfortable room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is also very central within 5 mins walking distance to Courtney Place. There is also a very nice Cafe just next to the hotel for a relaxed breakfast.

Twin room setup was perfect for my sister and I although being a twin studio both sleeping areas were separated with bathroom in between. Only moan is finding a dirty plate on the stack of plates in cupboard and although not a cooking unit a knife woild be... More

Service was friendly yet professional. The room had stunning views of Wellington harbour and was spacious and well appointed. In house restaurant is superb in service and quality of food. Valet parking is an extra charge but worth it in the busy city.

We stayed at the Copthorne mainly for the great location. It's within walking distance to Cuba Street for dining out, Lambton Quay for shopping & Ta Papa. If you also go in the opposite direction of town & follow Oriental Place, it's a great coastal drive. The hotel was nice & clean & in room facilities were great. If you... More

Our room was clean and comfortable albeit the decor was a little tired. The lounge are on level 7 is nice for drink or just to relax in with views of the city. We didn't use the restaurant as there are so many great places just a short walk away. The location on Oriental Bay is a bonus for a... More

Our room was tidy with what would be a lovely view of the harbour when it isn't raining or gale force winds! Warm and easily accessible. Family room was quite cosy with little ones as we couldn't be out all day - and the need to have the buggy with us did reduce the room somewhat. Towels - never enough... More

Booked superior Harbourview twin room - much better than expected. Quite roomy, almost like a separate bedroom how the beds are split between the bathroom - one on each side. Good location and friendly staff. Only negative is car parking. Full on arrival and next day went out for 30 minutes and on return spent another 30 minutes trying to... More

Dear Phers84 Many thanks for your review. The harbour view twins are a good set up I am pleased you noted this. My apologies that the busy car park was a frustration and time consuming. If you return please take up our valet parking option and this will minimise the time you have to worry about car parking. I look... More

I hate having to pay for internet access at hotels in the 21st century and always search for hotels with free wifi. I did a search on trip advisor for hotels in wellington with free wifi, copthorne is listed. The hotel's web site says in room details, that there is high speed internet access, nothing about having to pay for... More

Room was bright, clean and comfortable. The lift (singular! - or you need to switch lifts if you are above a certain level) is slow, small and cumbersome, which is just plain aggravating if you arrive late and are tired, or are part of the early rush to check out (and can't fit in the lift). Staff are helpful.
