The hotel is in a good location. Walking distance to most things. The view from the harbour view room was stunning. The room was comfortable but a bit worn in places and quite basic in decoration. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was fine but not that much choice. Nothing in comparison to the breakfast that is offered in other 4* hotels. Dining room was quite scruffy. Chairs badly stained. The whole place could do with renovating. Apart from the view of the harbour and the convenient location I wouldn't choose to stay again.

Great well priced hotel which delivers great rooms, helpful staff and is 8n a central position for harbour strolls and the buzzy courtenay place. Fantastic views of the wellington harbour from many of the rooms. Positively recommended

A great place to stay, we enjoyed everything about the Hotel, room was great, clean, comfy bed and a Harbour view which just made it. The staff were great, friendly and very efficient in all areas. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and received a nice card and truffles in our room, a great touch. Would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I really liked our stay here as we were ensconced in a nice double double bed room (912) in the Vista wing and we had magical views of Wellington Harbour far down-or so it seemed- below. The staff were nice and the Valet Parking service was much appreciated. The room was well appointed and did warm up quickly once the wall heater got going. All in all it was quite romantic experience for us as a couple. It was as if we were secreted in the turret of a castle.

Room Tip: Try the Vista wing!

We stayed at the Copthorne for 2 nights of our 18 day trip around NZ, we enjoyed it there very much. The restaurant on the 7th floor was excellent. We had fish and chips which was very fresh. Our room overlooked the bay and the view was glorious. They even have a washer and dryer you can use on the 8 th floor which was nice when you are on the road for 18 days. We highly recommend this hotel.

Hi Mark M

Thank you so very much for you detailed lovely review. I am so happy to managed to experience majority of our services and found them to exceed standard.

May I just correct anyone who is coming into the hotel and looking for the laundry facilities, these are located on level 9 rather than level 8.

Hope you welcome you back on your next trip to New Zealand Mark.

Thanks
Karyn
