“excellent location and family room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

We stayed 4 nights in a family room in July school holidays. We thought the layout of the family room was great, and we had a view of the harbour, pity we were only on the 1st floor as we imagine view gets better the higher up you are. Kids had a swim each afternoon, amazing views from the pool on the top floor.
Hotel is in an excellent location, 2 minutes walk to TePapa, and on into the CBD. A great New World 2 minutes walk away.
Staff were helpful when we asked questions, and we were able to pick up the 20 minutes free wifi in our room as we were directly above the lobby.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and will return again on our next visit to Wellington.

Room Tip: ask for a view of the harbour, the higher up you can get the better

We stayed in Room 921 and absolutely loved the view. We got the room on a Winter Warmer deal which included fully cooked buffet breakfast so awesome value for money & great service in the restaurant. The bed & pillows were comfortable & soft, the shower was clean & great pressure, the room/bathroom was lovely & clean, would definitely stay here again. Handy location to city, restaurants & Te Papa.
Would have rated as excellent if we didn't have to pay $25/night for parking which seems to be the norm in the city, and free WIFI in rooms would have been great. Glad we missed the earthquakes too!

We found the Copthorne Hotel to be more than we expected. Very helpful friendly staff. All rooms were beautifully done out. The Suite was amazing and the view spectacular. Can't wait to stay again. Plan on coming back for a wedding anniversary for 4 or 5 days.

Room Tip: Order a superior room to be guaranteed of a room with a water view. No point staying there if you d...

We stayed here on business as a conference was held at the hotel. We found the rooms to be spacious and clean. Our room looked out over the yacht club across the road. The staff were young but keen to be helpful. Overall, a pleasant stay.

Absolutely fantastic location. Nice walk into the CBD. Our room was on the 8th floor overlooking the harbour. The room was super. Lots of space for the two of us to chill out. Bed really comfortable. Staff very helpful. Only negative was that there was no complimentary wi fi in the room which was a bit of a bummer. They did offer 20 mins free in the lobby. The breakfast was lovely but we were there for 6 nights so got a bit bored with the same breakfast every morning. We would DEFINITELY stay there again when next in Wellington. Very quiet room. Just a terrific stay.

Room Tip: 8th floor or ask for rooms on 1st-8th floor so you get an amazing view.

We stayed 1 night on a cheap deal online. The room was really nice, warm, clean & cosy. We had a room on 9th floor with some great views. The staff were all friendly & helpful & we used the valet car parking at $25. Location is perfect for a night in town. Highly recommend the hotel & restaurant.
