Copthorne Hotel Wellington, Oriental Bay

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Room was very nice, clean and very upmarket, I only choose this hotel every visit to Wellington due to the great service. the rooms are very quiet and makes for a peaceful sleep. the service at the front desk is also of a very professional manner and very quick in dealing with your queries.

Just a quick stay - check in 6pm and check out 5:30am. Beds very comfortable and the room was great - R603. Looking out onto the marina, and two rooms cleverly configured for privacy. Excellent friendly and attentive staff.

The hotel is situated across the marina. The view from the balcony is amazing. Its located close to restaurants and bar. Sunday market is fantastic at the marina. The room so clean and massive. Definitely will comeback.

We have 3 rooms. All people bitted by fleas in bed. Incredible! No wifi in rooms. Just 30 minutes in public areas. No air conditioning in rooms. Room is average. Pool is really small and not clean. In a room with a view, it is really an obtrusive view and you need to walk across the roof to see the view. Over priced. Dirty. Should be closed for healthy reasons until fleas issue is resolved.

Stayed here recently for work and it was a good quality hotel. Although in a scenic location, it's not right in the city. Only a 5-10 minute walk however. Staff were great. I was on the 10th floor overlooking the water which was beautiful, although the trek to the room via two different lifts was somewhat annoying. Room was reasonable nice and very clean. Bed and pillows were both great. My only criticism with the room was that the hotel should spend money on providing a consistent water temperature to the shower instead of spending money on a window between the shower and bedroom. Had room service a couple of times and the food was good but for what it was, it was incredibly overpriced. Definitely not good value for money. Would stay here again and not hesitate to recommend this property !

Room was clean and well presented. There's no air conditioning in the room. Heating is via a convection heater. The bathroom is tiny with a small shower cubicle and no bath. Could clearly hear the neighbor's toilet flush as if it were in my room. Small (double) bed that was very firm but adequately comfortable. Reception was not manned when we arrived; the attendant was off to the side chatting with friends / colleagues in the lobby. Two lifts needed to get to our room. The stay was acceptable but the product offered is very average and as such I'd not stray here again.

Wow we loved this hotel, everything was well above expectations. We had a magnificent view from our room sweeping across the water where I woke up to the most beautiful sunrise. The room was well serviced with a great mini bar and excellent bathroom. I didn't want to leave that's for sure!

I was in Wellington recently for a couple of days. I stayed in Copthorne as recommended by my travel agent. I stayed for 3 nights. I must admit it’s a reasonably good hotel. I have dealt with a couple of it’s staff. They were friendly. However the bed I slept on was a nightmare. I was bitten all over my body. The bites are consistent with flea bites. This, completely blurred my opinion of Copthorne, Wellington. In fact I was quite surprise that such a reputable hotel can be infested by fleas. This is my worst hotel experience.

We had a lovely overnight stay. The pool was a hit with our kids after being at the museum/sightseeing all day. Front desk staff were very helpful in allowing us to drop our bags off earlier than our check in time and for the day we were due to check out (we flew out that night). The breakfast was also fantastic!!

Great harbour views quiet room easy walking distance to cbd sites. We were in room 1026. $170 couple. Giant tv in room perfect for watching movie or sports. Cafe nearby pretty good. Good shower comfy bed. Free newspaper. Friendly helpful staff. Recommend :)
