This hotel is located just away from the main busy area but it is only a 10 minute walk into the city for eating. When you arrive there is only a tiny space for about 2 cars at the front of the hotel for unloading-have to compete with the taxis! There is a charge for parking-$25ish in a very small... More

The beautiful room overlooking the harbour was fantastic. After walking all day around the lovely city we had drinks at the bar where we enjoyed fantastic hospitality. The day and evening were topped off by one of the best meals in their restaurant.

Stayed for two nights in a Double Room with harbour view. Our room was huge,with a king size bed, tea and coffee facilities and a wonderful view of the harbour. We could also see the Te Papa Museum from our balcony. The hotel is really close to the centre, especially the Museum and waterfront. We ate in the restaurant on... More

Half of the rooms in the hotel have no air conditioning. The rooms face west. Even in March, it was uncomfortably hot in the afternoon and early evening; in the summer it must be miserable. For each day, they give you 20 minutes of free wifi, or 20mb, which means that you may get to stay on the internet for... More

Dear XenophonAnabasis Thank you for taking time to post your review. Our Vista wing rooms do not have air-conditioning as you state and it is important to note for those who require this in their room. Our Bay wing is fully air-conditioned and all rooms face the harbour. All of our rooms do have the luxury of an opening balcony... More

This modern hotel is situated on the waterfront in Wellington and the rooms are reasonably sized and very clean. Twin rooms have a rather strange arrangement where one of the beds is in a sort of alcove near the door, receiving very little light. An adequate breakfast buffet is served in the spacious restaurant on a high floor. Our reception... More

Dear Jasperco Thank you for posting your review. I am pleased to read you enjoyed the view. Our twin rooms on our Bay wing have a double bed as you come through the door and a bathroom separating the king bed on the other side. This gives extra privacy for those sharing a room. A little unusual but quite effective!... More

Stayed for one night in Feb 2014 en route to the ferry to the South Island. The hotel was very clean and breakfast was very good with a varied menu. We had a Superior/Harbourview room with lovely views. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Wellington for a longer period of time.

We arrived a day early in Wellington and were hoping to check in a day early, but they were booked. Front office staff was super helpful and arranged a good deal at the Museum Hotel down the street. Beware that they charge for parking, and push the valet on you (that way they can charge you). The parking is around... More

We chose this hotel to stay at because it was located fairly close to where we were to catch the Interisland Ferry. It has all the basics; nice, clean, etc., but nothing special that set it apart. I did have a problem that they don't offer free Wifi - what's with that? Even Holiday Parks offer free Wifi now! Also,... More

Dear ozdreamin Many thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. I appreciate you choosing our hotel as your base before getting the ferry.

We arrived at the Copthorne to be greeted by a charge of $26 to 'valet' (that's 'park' to you and me) our car. Even in a capital city, that's outrageous. We stayed in over a dozen hotels during our time in New Zealand, and only one other hotel, the Scenic in Dunedin, pulled this trick on us. Then there's the... More
