I had a 7 night stay and all aspects of it were positive. The room was modern, a decent size, and the fit out was good quality. Staff were obliging and efficient. The TV had a news channel (Sky). Guests have access to computers in the lobby free of charge. The breakfast buffet covered the full range of hot and... More

I stayed at the Novotel when I was in Wellington for business. The location was great - easy to find good restaurants and actually walking distance. The lobby is nice and my room on the 8th floor had a small view of the harbour. The decor seems modern and the room comes with amenities. However, I really felt like this... More

I am a bit late doing this review, but better late than never. We stayed here at the end of January/ beginning of February at the start of a 3 week holiday in NZ. We didn't expect it to be anything but an average city centre hotel; and we weren't surprised. It was nothing special but clean. We were given... More

A tidy hotel centrally located so it's easy to walk to the business district and shopping/cafe areas. The reception area is small and uninspiring however the staff were very friendly and put the customer needs first. Check in and out was very easy with no hassle at all. My room was on the 6th floor. Coming out of the lift... More

From my booking, I thought that we were getting a room with a view of the harbour - but no, we were on the second floor looking towards hills at back of city. This detracted from our overall experience. Novotel is a good level of comfort and we always stay at an Accor managed hotel if possible. It's unfortunate that... More

Very modern room with everything I needed. Staff were friendly and accommodating, I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay again. Great location, easy walking to everything in the city. I couldn't really fault the place!

My wife and I recently stayed here for four nights as part of our honeymoon in New Zealand. We found the hotel comfortable, well located and the hotel restaurant was excellent. However, we were annoyed about the extra charges which were levied during our stay, including the breakfast (which we had assumed was incorporated within the room rate) but most... More

Clean, comfortable, modern. Exactly what you would expect from a Novotel. Brilliantly easy to get to from airport - get off at the cable car stop and walk through a shopping centre to get to a lift which whisks you up to reception. Only downside is lack of nearby restaurants - most good eating establishments are at least a 10... More

Travellers using hotels regularly become complacent checking out of one hotel in another and usually finding nothing much changes, all that is really required are two things..free wifi please...and comfortable beds, and maybe a view other than an office block or brick wall! The night before arriving at Novotel on The Terrace, we had a night at Novotel Auckland Airport... More
