I often stay at the Copthorne Hotel Commodore in Christchurch which is excellent so I decided to stay at it's sister hotel in Wellington for a change from my usual Hotel. I have to say that I have been very impressed.
I have spent a week at the Hotel in a Superior Room. These have clearly been renovated to a high standard in recent times. The views are spectacular. The Hotel is located in Oriental Bay and looks back across the Wellington CBD. The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom excellent with modern fixtures and excellent shower pressure. There is a flat screen television with a reasonable choice of channels and good furnishings. The rooms also have a minibar and good wardrobes.
The restaurant at the Hotel is very good. The food is of a high standard and the service friendly and helpful. Room service is available if you don't want to dine in the restaurant. There is a good bar adjacent to the restaurant, both found on the 7th floor.
It is excellent value for money compared with other Hotels in the CBD. A superior room cost me $170 per night. The location is removed from the CBD so it is quieter. The only downside is that business meetings in the City will require a short taxi ride. This is balanced by the advantage that the main entertainment area of Courtnay Place is but a short five minute walk away.
Although this is my first stay inhouse, I have attended conferences at this venue before and they have been to a similarly high standard. The morale of the Hotel staff seems great and they are clearly well trained. I would not hesitate to recommend the Copthorne Wellington for a good quality accommodation in Wellington, whether on business or pleasure.
