      The staff are so friendly and accommodating and the location was perfect, so handy to shops and restaurants etc.

      The bed was really comfortable. and the view was outstanding.

      The room was a bit cold, and there was no electric blanket on the bed.I would have prefered real milk in the fridge, not the stuff in the little pottles, it is discusting.

      • Average rating

      Floor staff recommending a local restaurant which was excellent.

      Stains on pillows. Reactive attitude from housekeeping having to call back and request more pillows the next day instead of putting it in the system, no complimentary gifts/upgrade for our proposal. I received complimentary wines and food almost anywhere we went.

      The King Size bed was comfortable and the room was nice

      The bathroom sink tap was set wrongly - with hot to the right, contrary to standard practice - and the bath/shower was set the other way. This is both undesirable if not dangerous. The restaurant service was poor - they took a long time and eventually, after prompting, brought me the wrong wine at the wrong time. The meal was not to my taste and the experience was definitely not value for money. For this reason, I would not recommend this hotel to business colleagues.

      Good location. Shops and restaurants just within walking distance.

      Room a bit small compare to other hotels and motels we stay in New Zealand. Very basic things given without any cooking facilities such as microwave oven is a minus point especially for travellers with family.

      Very kind Hotel staff. Good location to downtown.

      Lack of communication between Novotel and It took long time to confirm my reservation at Novotel via

      Network access in New Zealand seems to be purchased by the megabyte and by day, instead of just being limited by time like it is in the us. Not a fan of that, but that's more of a problem with the country.

    • Older travelers

      The only complaint i have is that hotel staff on 3 occasions in 3 days entered the room unannounced whilst we were either sleeping or enjoying private time without any explanation as to why or what they wanted.

      It is located in the middle of the town and next to the lake. Very close to shopping and all amenities.

      Limited computer terminals for free use at the lobby.

      Great location - not as noisy as most other places in town

      The room was advertised as being on the top floor - despite asking at reception we were stuck with a 2nd floor room
