Stayed here for a business trip in June and it was important for me to have activities close by while my husband attended a conference. The new Novotel building stands in an area still re-building. So at the time we traveled, there wasn't much directly around the hotel, but during the day it's a short walk to the re-start mall... More

Christchurch, as we know has been devastated by a terrible earthquake recently and the city is still struggling to come out of it. In fact the cathedral at the cathedral square, where the hotel is situated is also greatly affected by this. So has a few hotel and business centres in that area. But despite amidst all the ruins, stands... More

The hotel is centrally located in Christchurch. The room was clean and quiet. There was a comfortable bed, clean linens, and a refrigerator. The bathroom was large. The sink was located outside of the room, which was somewhat inconvenient. Since I had booked an executive room, there was free wifi in the room. Being on the twelfth floor, there was... More

Christchurch has had a rough time these last few years (earthquakes) but here is a place that has really got it together and showing what good accommodation and service is all about. The staff are so friendly they really make it a joy to go for dinner and breakfast each day. Well done Novotel Christchurch.

Great place compared with what else is on offer near by. One suggestion: For regular stayers the restuarant menu gets boring. Why no daily specials? In the last 6 weeks I have sene no additions to the menu.

Modern hotel room have be done to a high standard. Good restaurant options close by. The area is in the zone that has been cleared for redevelopment but is well placed to get around in CHC. Bed was new and comfortable. Good bar restraint area if you are not feeling like getting out.

First of all: excellent service from all staff. Well done. This hotel is very central and a brisk walk to Cathedral Square, Ballantynes, Re:start and Central bus station. If you are an Advantage Plus Member and looking for another restaurant, the Ibis hotel is within walking distance via the square. Our room was clean, comfortable bed and had a view... More

Christchurch Novotel delivered the novotel experience. clean, comfortable room with comfortable beds. Happily stay here again. Personally I find it a little extra for the same quality as some other neighboring hotels in the area. BUT You won't be disappointed with your stay here.

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.
