Excellent service from day one which never faltered in the six days I was there. Nothing was too much trouble from housekeeping to room service to the bar staff and the front desk. It was an absolute pleasure to stay in this beautiful hotel and I look forward to returning, hopefully soon.

Comfortable hotel, quiet room overlooking the river. It's been about 5 years since I have had to pay for wifi worldwide. This is terrible service and bit if a rip off, as most traveller are wireless. Breakfast was adequate and the staff great. Come on management, it's wireless world, makes you look out of date.

My husband and I had one night here on the 11/7/14. A quiet room and very comfortable bed. The best nights sleep I have had for a while. The hotel was very clean. I met a friend for a drink in the bar, the staff were attentive. The breakfast was very good. The hotel is in the middle of town... More

I'm a regular guest at Novotel Hamilton and what I like the most is the consistent level of service I get. I've never really had a problem as every request I've ever had gets a positive answer and they're always accommodating.

A fresh, clean, sophisticated hotel. Close to the river for waking and running, in the middle of town for shopping and food but you can stay in-Room Service was fresh and yummy with lots of options and you can choose how you want to eat-and fast welcoming service-thank you Tiffany!! Check-in was fast and the team is professional and friendly.... More

I would really like to give this hotel a 3 and a half star rating as it was good without being anything special. We had a suite which was huge and looked over the river. The decor is very 90's with a ridiculous neon headboard and bright blue wild grass motifs!?!? It was good value for money and the staff... More
