This was just what I was looking for for a weekend away with my Dad, whilst he was over visiting from the UK. Great twin room with separate 'rooms' for each of us. Very comfortable beds and surprisingly quiet considering we were so close to downtown. Amazing power shower to wake you up. And a small pool on one the... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Copthorne - we arrived into Wellington on the overnight flight - landed at about 7am. We rang theCopthorne about 10am to see if any chance of early check in - they were fabulous and had a room available immediately. This made such a difference to our stay. We had room 502 - fantastic view... More

Clean tidy place and friendly staff. Great location - we had a room overlooking the Harbour and watched the blue bridge ferry arrive and depart. Comfortable bed and pillows. A second armchair would have been great. We did strike a very windy weekend and the wind did keep us awake, and one night we had Neighbours in the room next... More

Room was fine for two nights. Nothing special. Asked for a wake up call. Fortunately I woke early. Never heard the call! Breakfast was ok. I have had much better. The highlight was dinner in their restaurant One 80. It was really excellent.

The location and service are top. Great communication and updates before arrival. Nice room but not over the top. View over the harbour somewhat obscured. But nice, clean and well presented. Will be back.

Location was great, walking distance to everything. Because it was raining, we ate at the restaurant one night and it was great. The breakfast was also very nice. Front desk was most helpful in providing information.

This hotel has the most amazing views of the harbour and Wellington and it is well worth paying a little extra to ensure you have a room on a higher level at the front of the hotel. The room was nicely decorated, the bed was very comfy and there was also a little kitchenette in the room. We would have... More

A conference venue so not my choice. Location was great but so too was the weather. In bad weather this is a bit away from city attractions. Check in was ok - but we had a heap of bags and had to both load our own trolley and then navigate the two lifts to the room. As a conference venue... More
