This hotel is in a great location - walking distance to the lakefront and all the shops/restaurants. The rooms are nice, beds are comfy and everything is very clean. Only downside was the loud drunk people outside on the street on Saturday night about 12.30, but this wouldn't be an issue if you didn't have a road-side room. Still a... More

Stayed three nights over Easter weekend, all restaurants and shops in walking distance, clean and comfortable, nice bar with lots of comfortable seating, bathroom could do with an upgrade, but overall nice place to stay.

Stayed in 3 hotels in Queenstown, and this was the most expensive and worst value. The room was good sized with a minibar. No free wifi in the room, but there are two terminals in the lobby available. The restaurant prices were very high, get out and eat at the nearby restaurants.

I thought when we booked we would have a view of the lake, not a view of the carpark!! Accommodation comfortable and check in and check out smooth. Helpful staff. Close to everything that we needed, except the view of the lake!

This is very well located in Queenstown; the staff are very helpful and our room and amenities were good. We stayed for a week which was a good stay. Close to all the shops. Would stay again however the only thing I did notice was that during the whole week stay the housekeeping never vacuumed our room even though it... More

My husband and I are frequent travellers to Queenstown. We have stayed in a number of different hotels there, however we keep going back to the Novotel as it is such amazing value for money. This hotel has a perfect location, right on the lake and walking distance to every restaurant you could ever wish for. The Queenstown Gardens (gorgeous... More

This hotel is well situated to the tourist activities in Queenstown. Our two-bedded room was clean but small. For example, the clothes closet was too small for two people and there was not room to walk around one bed next to the wall. Our ground floor room did have a door to the outdoor courtyard garden, which could be a... More

This hotel is close to the Queenstown Gardens, the lake, and the pub/restaurant/shop area of Queenstown, and is an excellent choice based on its location. Our room was nice and comfortable, but had some odd flaws. One is that the bathroom door had a large panel of frosted or privacy glass--the kind that you can't see clearly through but which... More

Dear Joe H Thanks for your review - it sounds as if the experience was generally positive and while there were a few things you felt that could have been improved that you would come back. We acknowledge your comments about the doors to the bathrooms - these are in our top floor Superior rooms only. We understand your comment... More
