“Great Location & Modern Rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

I stayed on Level 2 and the View was good facing over the Harbour, the room was very clean and modern. Friendly Staff. Only took a couple of minutes to walk down to Courtenay Place so could not get a better location.I would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: I stayed on Level 2 which had a good view and nice room.

I've stayed at several hotels in this city and always return to the Copthorne for a quiet, good quality environment, modern decor, and easy access to the waterfront and Te Papa museum. Last time, it was for a break and not business, and the last minute booking was very affordable with a full breakfast included. The swimming pool is being redecorated so shall have to try it next time.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view - it's spectacular, though the city view is OK

Delux Hotel close to chic Wellington night life.
Beautifully appointed rooms with stunning views of the Harbour.
The views from the 7th floor Restaurant are unrivalled, and the food is equal to the best Wellington has to offer.
Friendly and helpful staff.
A great get away weekend stay!

I spent 4 nights at the Copthorne in Oriental Bay over the past weekend. The property has recently undergone a $15M upgrade and it is evident from the time you step foot into this property that it has been tastefully spent. The rooms are large and beautifully appointed. The staff are very attentive and nothing was ever too much trouble.
Whilst I only had 1 breakfast while I was there, I am aware that the weekend that I stayed, the Sous Chef at this hotel was awarded the Top Chef in Wellington (Chef of the Capital) at the Wellington Culinary Fare. Having watched the competition - it was certainly no wonder.
I manage a luxury property myself so can say with absolute confidence that the experience I had at the Copthorne in Oriental Bay was without doubt, one of my best. Well done team!

Room Tip: The rooms that overlook Oriental Parade are stunning!

what a fabulous Hotel in which to attend a conference or meeting.
The Booking process was easy and friendly.
Food selection for the meeting was a breeze and satisfied 25 hungry Woolfirst Wool Merchants.
The Events manager was easy to contact, either by telephone or email and very efficient
Well Done Copthorne Events management.

Wow, the wind is certainly a noisy sleeping companion in Wellington

Room Tip: Book early and be prepared to upgrade, we did and the room was great!

Stayed 3 nights. Room very clean with great view of Wellington & harbour. Staff efficient and helpful. But.... (1) the queen size mattress in room 921 is a killer. If you don't have a bad back when you arrive (I do) you certainly will have when you leave. Well past its use by date Copthorne! (2) Paid for room + breakfast but leaving hotel at 0645 hours to catch train to Auckland was too early for breakfast on last morning. Offered and accepted 'boxed breakfast' in lieu of buffet breakfast (which was very good). It was neither boxed nor what I would describe as breakfast. It came in brown paper bags and comprised a shrivelled croissant and a plastic box with a white runny mess in it. As the lid was not secured this mess ran into the bottom of the paper bag. There was only one 'breakfast' for 2 guests. Had all the hallmarks of a disgruntled breakfast chef's bad temper in content and presentation. Simply not good enough. (3) Charged for a phone call to Auckland after being assured would not be charged.But Duty Manager at checkout refunded cost of call immediately - good on him. (4) Lastly - deposit of NZD50 taken on check in remains with Copthorne at time of writing. Checked out Saturday morning today is Sunday evening. It might be my bank's computer system on slow time but where is my money?

Room Tip: Choose one on floors 8 to 10 with great view of city and harbour.
