Located right in the middle of the city, the Novotel is barely 5 minutes walk to the wharf bars and restaurants - perfect for an afternoon beer down by the water. The room was clean with modern lighting and art, bed was comfortable and the staff were friendly. I managed to get a room last minute at a reasonable rate... More

We spent one night here before catching the ferry to Picton. The location is great. We parked in the public car park next door to the hotel $20.00 and walked 5 minutes and we were in Lambton Quay. It was a 10 minute drive to the ferry terminal. The staff were friendly and obliging. Our bed was very comfortable.

This hotel is good for business as it is in a good location near key government offices, is well maintained, and the staff are friendly. I've stayed here a number of times and check in and out is always fast and efficient, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the air conditioning works well and there's very little noise in the...

We spent three nights in interconnecting rooms with our teenage children. The rooms were fine but we were disappointed there was no compendium with hotel or local information - something we usually find standard in hotels. We have stayed here on two other occasions and this time we were disappointed that they only offer a buffet for breakfast when I'm... More

Stayed in the Novotel for 1 night during a whistle stop tour of the South Island with my father who was visiting from the UK. Excellent hotel, comfortable rooms and staff where extremely helpful. Centrally located so a short walk to most attractions. The bar appeared to be well stocked and the menu looked good although we did not eat... More

We have stayed at Novotel Wellington on many occasions over the years due to location and have never been disappointed with friendly, efficient staff, clean and comfortable rooms, and delicious breakfasts. On our most recent visit, the hotel still provided everything we enjoyed, but the breakfast offerings were not up to the excellent standard we've enjoyed in the past. However,... More

Service at check-in and check-out was good. The room was fine. The location was reasonable - front entrance back from the centre of town, but there is an elevator from Lambton Key, which was convenient. The restaurant was slow at dinner time, which was the low point.

Good views and reasonably located, the service was also friendly and professional, and staff were always helpful with directions and suggestions. A little bit of a walk (25min) to the dining areas but good access from motorway.

Love the Novotel chain and their Wellington hotel was right up to standard. A great price, friendly staff, our lovely room ready early and valet parking made our overnight stay in Wellington great. Could not have asked for more although a tip is to book directly with the hotel instead of other sites....cheaper and we received a $30 hotel credit... More

Could not rate this place more highly. Great room, great location and staff were very helpful. Would definitely stay there again. Only thing we found was there were not many pubs open past 4 on a Sunday.
