4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a very mice hotel - right in the centre of Christchurch. I had a very nice room and the restaurant was very accommodating - I ate breakfast there twice and dinner once. It is clearly a new hotel and as such the decor etc is lovely. Not much around but then this is the centre of Christchurch.

Stayed over a night in Christchurch while visiting the South. Took a while to get to the hotel due to many on-going road works but once you find it, you'll realise that the location is right in the middle of the town just next to the Cathedral. So you can pretty much walk to most of the places that you... More

Enjoyed our stay at the Novotel. Right opposite the Cathedral. Very helpful staff, accommodation 5 star. Certainly is quite a ghost town since the earthquake. My husband is a builder, so we stayed there so as to have a good look around. Hardly any places to eat, so had to eat at hotel, which made it a bit pricey. Had... More

I walked over from the Christchurch Office at around 6.30 into the grey gloom and eeriness of the CBD in rebuild mode. A distinct East Germany feel. What a pleasure to round the corner and see the welcome lights and warmth of the new Novotel. The front desk staff friendly and efficient and recommended an in-house dinner booking given the... More

With a city surrounded in rubble, this truly is a clean, tidy and comfortable hotel. We were here for one night, beds were comfortable. We had a room looking over the theatre and my son had a room over looking the cathedral. Buffet for breakfast was ok, not top quality and the coffee in the vending machine was fit for... More

Great hotel in the centre of Christchurch. We were made to feel very welcome by the team here. Commendation to all staff for looking after us. Good Gym and great food. I was very surprised at the level of quality of the Novotels experienced in NZ compared to Australia and Fiji. Worth staying a bit longer.

This hotel is centrally located in the heart of Christchurch and is only one of a few high rise buildings that remain in the central city following a major earthquake three years ago. The hotel is a true four star establishment with clean modern rooms and friendly staff. We were on an upper floor and had great views over the... More

Comfortable 2 night stay. Staff friendly and helpful. Room reasonably spaciius. Valet parking not cheap but worthwhile and is undercover. Parking elsewhere appears to be 12 hours max only, complicated. Breakfast excellent and enjoyed evening meal in restaurant also.

Dear aniwa2014, Thank you taking time to share your views on Trip Advisor. I am glad to see that you liked your room and the meals in the restaurant.

I have been coming here since they reopened post quake, and it just keeps getting better. On a busy customer run south this is a great stop point when I'm on the road. They had given our visit extra attention with lovely teas and even a delightful welcome platter of sweet treats for our arrival. There is a convenient place... More
