Fabulous view looking out from Oriental Bay

Pros: Loved the modern look of the room and the fact the king size bed and queen beds were separated by the bathroom giving privacy. Really loved the view.
Cons: Thought the breakfast menu was expensive and pretty ugly dining room and boring food options. Needs a shake up and new design.
Location: Went to Te Papa twice and three fabulous restaurants nearby. Cheap taxi fares when we needed them and lovely drive from the airport round the bays.
Loved the view and the room but was disappointed the staff couldn't separate the king size bed and make two single beds (even though it was obvious from the base that the bed could be split) - it meant my two sisters had to share a bed for three nights which was not great.

Great location. Enjoyed the views from the room, as well as the short walking distance to alot of restaurants, market on Sunday morning, shops, movie theatres. Enjoyed the restaurant right opposite the Copthorne when meeting up with a group of old friends for breakfast. Nothing to complain about. An enjoyable mini-break in Wellington. Thank you.
