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

I didn't get to see a whole lot of the Novotel as I checked in at 11pm and checked out at 7am. What I can say is that the bed is amazing! I was bone tired and as soon as I hit the bed, I was relaxed through the amazing quality of the mattress! How to make a weary traveller... More

Perfect location and really nice rooms. After a week or so in NZ staying at various types of BNBs or hotels, this was the perfect hotel/room to end our stay in NZ. The rooms are nice and spacious, and the location is great. Close to the port and lake, everything is walking distance and so would highly recommend this hotel.... More

We especially chose this hotel as one to take overseas guests. Our 4th visit there, and it proved highly successful for all of us. In particular the courtesy and efficiency of staff, many of them old friends

Many hotel to choose from in Queenstown but the Novotel Lakeside was definitely the best choice for us. The location is perfect right in next to the lake, The Queenstown gardens and all the restaurant. The hotel is really clean and the team so efficient. They have a great Concierge and porter team available everyday to assist you with any... More

I decided to pick this hotel to stay at because they had an early bird special as we normally stay at the Heritage. I must say from the start that the Novotel Lakeside is a great base to place yourself with right-across-the-road access to Lake Wakatipu (and all water activities) and close proximity to all the local attractions. The customer... More

Quite a modern hotel well situated in town centre and on the lake - although I wonder why they have planted trees that block out the lake view from the "lake view" rooms - quite absurd to block the maginificent "view" ? Good facilities and our top floor room was quiet Good meals in the restaurant. Rooms not big but... More

Dear Rubeshawkes Thanks for staying and for your review - always good to get positive comments and these will definitely be passed on to the team. The trees in front of the Hotel are planted on Council owned public land with the foreshore and park area enjoyed by many people - as such it is now ours to do anything... More

This hotel provided everything for us to have a pleasant Queenstown stay. The hotel looks really modern from outside and in public areas. As soon as you go to the elevator and room floors, you will see a difference. Even though the rooms are not as refurbished as the public spaces, we felt comfortable in our room with two separate...
