Copthorne Hotel Wellington Oriental Bay

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Had a 5 night stay at this hotel, our room was on the top floor, had a small balcony and a great view of the harbour. The room was small but well fitted, bathroom & shower were modern and contemporary. Staff were friendly and helpful and the food was very good. The location was great for easy walking access to the city.
All in all a great city hotel.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms were very quiet, even with the window open there was very little city noise.

It is funny to have parking behind a high-up floor of an hotel.
A bit funny, too, to then have to use two different lifts to reach street level.
Not funny to have a party next door well past midnight with any amount of noise and very little help from the front desk.
Old worn-out bed didn't improve the impression.
Good view, though.

Dear traex thank you for posting your review. Our car park is above our Oriental Parade street address, a little odd I know, but we offer a valet service to take out any confusion. My apologies for any noise disturbance you experienced during your stay, we do have strict noise controls and you can be assured I have discussed with my team.

This place had a great location with awesome harbour views (we choose harbour view room) and close to all amenities. The service was wonderful and the room was well cleaned each day. Modern bathroom and beds that were firm. AC was optionable and very quiet, with sliding door to open deck. A bonus was the room had excellent sound proofing which made a excellent excuse to sleep in. Spent 4 nights stay with family. Well worth it.

Room Tip: go for upgrade to harbour view, it's lovely at night.

We stayed on the 8th floor of this Hotel and loved that our patio door opened up onto a rooftop terrace! The view of the harbour was amazing from there! The 9th floor has a public outdoor sitting area and the pool has a balcony as well (again with amazing views of the harbour). There is a laundry room, which was a nice surprise on a long trip. The front desk staff were on the ball and were in contact with our tour operators before we even thought to.

Room Tip: 822 or in that area has access to the rooftop terrace

We only stayed a night at this location as we were in transit. We had a family room that overlooked the harbour. We parked across the road from the hotel at the pay meters which are not in use from 6pm to 8am. So we had no valet charges and could see the car from our room. We were able to send the son to the pool with complete confidence that he would not get into mischief! We walked to a great Chinese restaurant all but 5 mins down the road, new world supermarket on the way which enabled us to pick up and re stock on items required for the next stop. Yes there was a fee for wifi but that would be expected in any city hotel. Room was clean, facilities good and bed comfy. Service by receptionist prompt and efficient and concierge knew their stuff. Very happy and would come back - and will do in the future but not as a stopover but more of a look see.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor recommend getting one on the higher floors to get a full appreciation of...

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 tight area at the rear. If you are a nervous parker- beware.
Our room was OK - standard chain hotel. We had not paid for a sea view so we overlooked the car park entrance on a residential street. No big deal as only an overnighter. Breakfast at $25 was good in a pleasant dining room.
My big gripe was the bed. It was awful-soggy and like a trampoline. I spent all night hanging onto the edge of the bed trying not to roll into the middle into my partner!
Also some noise from the hilly road outside as vehicles using low gears accelerated past.
Pity this chain hotel didn't check the quality of its beds & replace the mattresses regularly.
If someone had asked me at checkout if everything was OK I would have told them the above!

Dear francophile5310 It was good to read your review. Your comments about the quality of our beds is concerning and I will review this with my team. Our beds are by no means old and we pride ourselves on a good nights sleep for all our guests. Your feedback is invaluable to us so many thanks for taking the time to comment. I hope one day to welcome you back one day soon.
