          • Group of friends
            7.0

            Location was good. Well presented Hotel. Good facilities.

            The booking was confirmed by email, but the room type I booked was not available when we checked in, the staff working at the time were not very helpful, had to stay in a very unsuitable room for a night. May not be representative of the average experience, but it caused a level of stress that was unwarranted.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            I really liked the attitude of the breakfast restaurant staff upon being asked for gluten free cereal. They said they would have some later in the morning and tomorrow but said they had gluten free bread which they toasted for me under the grill. The next morning they remembered.

            Why have double beds? And with a single bed in the room also. A queen bed would have been more comfortable for slightly overweight, older guests. I haven't slept in a double bed anywhere for many years.

          • Older travelers
            6.0

            Rooms where nice, quiet.

            The prices of the rooms. We were staying with friends and there room was bigger than ours and less expensive thanours and they booked after us. The $20.00 parking fee is just plane rude. I wiil not be staying again because of this. I have stayed down the road at another hotel and they had alot better rate and no charge for parking.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            On the whole great staff, great hotel, pool looking dated but water quality very good and ph levels checked. We would definately go to wellington again but next time I book with the copthorne oriental when I ask for a great room with views I will remembet to stipulate higher than level 1.

            Female reception staff member rude and female bar staff member rude. Over three nights all the staff were great in the main but following were noted: 1 -on arrival I was refferred to Dilks not mr dilks (not nice) 2- 2nd day my room key card did not work and it should have been programmed for three nights which is ok - but at reception the way it was handled made me feel like it was my fault. 3-Bar -cold demeanour was a tad offputiing like she "was the boss" attitude which I dont condone either. 4 -hotel was quiet and we were put on level1 so lots of road noise as there was a speed check system on the road so cars mad audible noise each time they crossed it also dogs in neighbouring building were always barking and trees obstructed views to the bay (main reason we went there was for the views)

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Private and convenient to Wellington city. Service good and priced well.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            View, good staff, room good, pool good ( lines on bottom for small laps,etc would be good.gym also be good.

            Breakfast service , no tea, had to ask which is ok , have been offered most other times

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Bath over shower, but bath quite small and water did not get very hot.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            Love the views across the water, the waterfront location and the proximity to great cafes and shopping

          • Single
            8.2

            The view from the room. Also, the restaurant's soup was excellent.

            Even with the heater in the room on, the room was cold. Not crazy about the shower set-up -- that style always gets lots of water on the floor outside of the shower area. Would have appreciated nicer shampoo and conditioner (no conditioner).

          • Couple
            9.2

            10Th floor rooms have an amazing view of the Wellington harbor. Even from the shower! Best hotel location in the city. Staff were very helpful and friendly

            Is a little expensive, seems suited more fOr business than leisure.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Very friendly and most helpful front desk staff. The food offered for breakfast was also very nice - hot and plenty of it. Very efficient restaurant staff.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Friendly staff, great locale, convenient parking, pleasant bar facility, excellent views..

            With only 2 cups and 2 wine glasses, we could not conveniently offer any guests a social drink.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            The staff was very friendly and helpful and made our stay enjoyable. We had a beautiful view of Wellington Harbor. Walking distance to Te Papa museum and Courtney Place restaurants.

            We were at the top of the hotel (10th floor) and the wind was very noisy during the night. Wi-fi was only available on the 7th and 1st floor lobbies and was free for only 20 minutes a day.

          • Family with children
            7.0

            Great location for families, plenty of things to do close (walking distance) to do.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Staff, good room.

            Charges - including $8 for a load of wash and drying, and especially the obscenely expensive, piggish charges for internet usage. The worst we have ever experienced, on five continents. Why a business traveler or just normally web occupied person would ever stay where there is such a ripoff for an important amenity is beyond me, and I certainly would never recommend this hotel to any such person.
