Copthorne Hotel Wellington, Oriental Bay

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Well maintained hotel with top service. We felt like we were at a much more expensive hotel for our 3 days in Wellington. The room was spotless when we arrived, and the staff was professional and friendly. Our requests were fulfilled very quickly each time. When high winds cancelled one of our day adventures, the concierge, Martin, gave us several great options. The views of the harbour are excellent. We'll stay any time we are in Wellington.

Very nice hotel. While staying here I broke a nail and needed a fix. I asked at the desk for advice about where I could get my nails fixed. I hadn't left my number but the woman at the desk did a lot of research for me, wrote me a note detailing the nail shops she knew were open the next day (it was ANZAC day so lots of places were closed) and slipped it under the door to our room. I was so impressed. Well done Copthorne! The breakfast, though expensive was a highlight. We had dinner one night in the restaurant and it was beautifully cooked and once again great service. Highly recommended for a convenient and pleasant visit to the Capital.

Stayed here for five nights while on a course in-house. I was pleasantly surprised - the room was a good size, well appointed and comfortable. Yes it’s a little tired in some minor places, but clean and the bed was very comfortable. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding! We had buffet breakfast and lunches each day plus a sit-down dinner one night and a buffet dinner one night. All fabulous! A big shout out to the lovely gentleman who cooks the eggs to order for breakfast every day - I had perfect poached eggs and spinach cooked each morning and he was polite and very pleasant. I also loved the loose leaf tea selection and being able to make a pot of tea. My only very small gripes were having only three coathangers for my week’s worth of clothes, the cost of parking, and on the final morning there was a misunderstanding with my car and the promises made to me to move my car, get my bags and put them in my car we’re not carried out. I would still happily return.

This hotel is located on one of the main streets as you enter the city. It is handy to museum , waterfront and shopping area. The staff is very helpful and a visit to the museum across the way is very impressive.

The Copthorne hotel is situated in Oriental Bay within easy walking distance of the top restaurants, theatres, Te Papa and also enroute to airport. A very convenient spot to launch out to enjoy Wellington's wonderful shopping, swimming at local swimming pool and beach and walking Mt Victoria - so many things to do in Wellington and the hotel is very well placed.. There are magnificent views of the harbour and a range of rooms. Attentive staff and pleasant sunny environment.

As periodic visitors to Wellington, the Copthorn Oriental Bay is our preferred accommodation option. The handy location and harbour views are major attributes - but we acknowledge that the hotel is driven by sound management which delivers a full range of services in a professional but friendly manner. Recommended.

Perfect spot close to town with a great view. We came over to Wellington from the Marlborough sounds for the fireworks, The Room was nice and clean loved that there was Jeds coffee in the room. Would Definitely stay again !

Visiting Wellington to catch up with family and took the opportunity to watch the amazing Wellington Fireworks display from our balcony / harbour view room which was amazing. Very centrally located and convenient to Te Papa , the Sunday market, restaurants etc.

Good quality hotel in a great harbour front location. 2 night stay with family and friends before we crossed to the South Island. Valet parking for cars. Rooms were a good size, modern, clean and comfortable, though the bathroom was a little more on the functional than luxurious side. Town bars and restaurant we just a short walk away.

Stayed for a course. Checkin was easy, room was well set up, and clean and tidy. All the meals were excellent, meeting rooms well looked after, room was well serviced every day. Some of the building is getting a bit tired but only if you look. Nice stay
