We stayed here during Comicon in July. Awesome views. Within easy walking distance of everything. Easy enough parking behind the Hotel (extra cost). Great breakfast. Have also stayed here while attending various Food-type shows. Whole family stayed for a family wedding. Have stayed here while competing in sports. Great deals available.

This property has been blessed with one of the prime locations in Wellington. its proximity to Oriental Bay, Te Papa and the Peter Jackson-restored Embassy Theatre complex, not to mention sundry Courtenay Place cafes is stunning. We had a comfortable room and were pleased with the service we received.

Unfortunately this hotel did not blow us away in the slightest. It is a very nice place, but felt pretentiously so because the service was incredibly subpar. However, shoutout to all of the lobby staff; they were always wonderful and even unexpectedly allowed us to check-in early - we were just going to store our bags and explore the city...

Stayed here with 11 friends over the Wearable arts festival and it was great. Great location and walking distance to everything. The rooms were modern and clean. The view we all had from the tenth floor was relaxing and calming looking over the city and the ocean. The staff were very accommodating and friendly.

Positioned right on the water at Oriental Bay, this hotel is within easy walking distance of Te Papa museum, the great shopping and restaurants of Cuba Street, and Wellington CBD. The rooms are well equipped and the beds are sumptuously comfortable. Service was efficient and friendly and the in house restaurant had a great breakfast. I'd stay here again.

I stayed at the Copthorne Oriental Bay for a work conference at Te Papa Museum. The hotel is a bit of a walk away from the city end but offers great business facilities and accommodation options if you need to be at the museum end. I stayed in the harbour view room which is spacious and provides all the amenities....

Good location - close to CBD, Te Papa, etc. Rooms are well fitted out and clean. Even though in the Windy City, rooms were quiet and not drafty. Staff were friendly and helpful. Didn't use the swimming pool this time - but have previously - it's good, though feeling a bit dated decor wise. Overall worth a stay.

We had a great stay at the Copthorne. Unfortunately their family room was being refurbished however the staff obligingly gave us an extra rollaway so we could fit our three children in. Breakfast had some good choices, although the eggs were a bit jellied (maybe egg powder?) and didn't taste all that good. Lots of other hot choices, bread, pastries,...
