This hotel is great for families, close to the city and within walking distance of great restaurants, takeaways and movie theatres. We really liked the family room as the kids area is on the other side of the bathroom so you don't feel like you are all on top of one another. The pool area is terrible and seriously needs...

The bay view is lovely from this hotel, looking over a pretty marina. My room was nice enough, modern, the staff that I saw were friendly enough. My room was not serviced properly, sheets just pulled up, bed not "made", and the pillows and cushions all over the floor. I found that a bit odd as I had not chosen...

This hotel's location commands views of Wellington's enchanting harbor, though my view faced the City: A nice outlook too. Copthorne Oriental Bay is just a 7 - 10 minute walk to the city centre. Service at the hotel is excellent. A possible safety Note: The Copthorne Hotel Oriental Bay is constructed just in front of a 50 meter cliff. Two...

The hotel has a great location and an amazing view as well as balconies. The room was quiet. The service was very good. The restaurant is expensive. The breakfast is too expensive for what it is. The negative point was that the mattresses were bouncing and you had the feeling that you were sleeping on a water mattress and this...

The Copthorne has fantastic location and amazing views and feels like a real treat to stay here. It's very close to town with an easy 2 minute walk to Courtenay Place, and a bus stop right opposite. The pool was much enjoyed by the kids though it needs a makeover to bring it up to the standard of the rest...

Stayed on the 5th floor, with uninterrupted harbour views and small balcony. Check in was quick, friendly and helpful. The room is very spacious, the bed super comfy, good sized bathroom and great shower. Nice to have a small frig. There is a safe in the wardrobe. The location is perfect, short walk to Te Papa, restaurants, and a fantastic...

We found the bed and pillows comfortable; the room was quite nice; the staff very friendly and helpful; and the view of the harbour would have been lovely but sadly we did not have a that view. We were tucked away in the back of the hotel (we had booked through an agent and for the price we paid were...
