We stayed at the Copthorne in Wellington while on business in the city. Here's what we liked. The room we were in on the tenth floor had a great view of the harbour. A colleague was given a room with a view of a back alley, but his room was changed to a better location on request. Our group ate...

If you're in Wellington and want a great hotel with panoramic views over the harbour... then this is your place. Oriental Bay, where the hotel is located, is one of Wellington's great areas with bars and cafes and only a 5-10 walk to the city area....

I was in Wellington in early September in sad circumstances and not sure how long I was needing to stay. The staff were so helpful and gave me the flexibility I needed in extending my stay. Open and light , great location by the sea front

If you can get a roo with a view of the Harbour than you will have a beautiful view of not only the city but of the harbour below. From the moment I walked into the foyer I was greeted with an enthusiastic staff member who insisted that she help me with my bags up to my room. Just a...

Just had 2 nights here. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room very comfortable and quiet, and we were on the road side. Easy walk to Courtenay Pl bus stop and many eating places. A short walk to Te Papa and an easy walk into the city along the foreshore.

Great location within walking distance of Te Papa Museum, weekend outdoor market and some good restaurants. 15 minute walk to city centre. Friendly staff. Great views from our 10th floor room. Windows badly need cleaning.

Whilst this is a nice hotel in a nice spot close to some great eating places, there are some things that caused me to wonder what's going on with the management and policies around parking and WiFi.

The hotel is in a great location, just short walk to Te Papa, great variety of restaurants and a super market. It is a relatively small hotel, the room is not spacious in NZ standard, and the services are very average. The hotel charges guests for wifi - the only hotel we stayed in NZ that didn't provide free wifi....
