We started ed 2 nights on the 12th floor in April.this was meant to be a premier floor. The Novotel has been built in the centre of where the earthquake caused such havoc. Indeed from our room the true horror is clearly visible. Christchurch as I knew no longer exists. I hope the future is kind to it. The Novotel... More

The Novotel Christchurch is a fantastic hotel with really great hotel rooms that are very clean and modern. The hotel staff were exceptional and provided a seamless check-in and check-out. The room facilities were very good with a bed that was extremely comfortable giving a really good nights sleep. The hotel is highly recommended for couples or business travelers.

Very nicely presented hotel, impressive foyer. The bed spread had a hole in it, didn't really bother us but not a good look-we would have expected more attention to detail would have been paid to things like this at a Novotel hotel. Room service was disappointing, our meals weren't nice at all.

Had a three night stay here in Christchurch with my family. Check-in was a breeze; they noted (with delighted surprise) that I am an Accor Platinum and gave me a couple of drink vouchers for the bar. I was directed to a room on one of the upper floors. In terms of location, it is very central, but there is... More

Spent a wonderful night here with my husband as a 28th wedding anniversary treat. Lovely room on the 12th floor, overlooking the Cathedral and south to the Port Hills. City lights magnificent at night. Room very clean and plenty of space. Had breakfast and was amazed at the variety available. Most memorable stay.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel was very clean and modern. It is in the heart of the city and within walking distance to most things including Rebuild mall. Staff were very helpful. My only complaint was that we weren't told that the free wifi in the lobby had to be used in one go so only got... More

We stayed at the Novotel for my birthday last year in October. The staff went out of their way to make my birthday very memorable from the special desert I received to the fantastic service from all the staff. The concierge team were amazing and made the whole holiday very special. They booked tours for us and even valet parked... More

We just checked out today and this hotel was awesome. Fantastic location, friendly staff and lovely rooms. We had dinner one night which was lovely, the staff assisted us in having a quick meal as we had a Crusaders game to get to. I highly recommend the Novotel Christchurch.
