This hotel was right on the lake. Our room had a veranda with a partial view of lake. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Convenient walking distance to docks, shops, and stores. Negatives: hallway carpeting looked worn and stained. Complimentary wifi limited to 29 minutes in lobby only.

Queenstown is a somewhat of a hustle, bustle tourist town and so the Novotel's location right on the lake and just enough away (1-2 blocks) from the main area of town was a real advantage. The room accommodation was fine, nothing special, the staff at the front desk helpful and breakfast was OK.

We spent one night here, we had a room overlooking the lake, the room was bland but adequately equipped however we had to ask for a new kettle and the safe did not work. Reception staff were not very friendly or helpful when we checked in which is very unusual for New Zealand. Very expensive car parking and only half... More

One thing that stood out to me about this hotel is the way housekeeping is done. In every hotel I remember staying at, housekeeping would clean the room and rearrange everything to how it was when you entered the room for the first time. It's annoying because you put the tissue box by the bed because you need to blow... More

Typical Novotel but in a great location. Obviously used for corporate visits as many delegates wandering around but the location was just right. Close enough to the waterfront to visit but not so close that you were affected by the noise. Room was was a nice size with a nice view and bathroom was clean and well appointed. Free computers...

Good hotel, has everything you need and in a great location. Pillows could be plumper and TV picture a little ropey (but then views outside are jaw-dropping so who's watching TV!!). Stayed before, will definitely stay again.

This town is gorgeous. The Hotel is a quick walk to the lake and convenient to walking trails and the shopping/restaurant . Cute Hotel with private Jacuzzi and an amazing breakfast. We had a creek view from our room!

We stayed here for a week on a golf trip. It is very well located in Queenstown and easy walking to almost everywhere. The rooms are spacious and the facilities in the room very good. I didn't eat any meals at the hotel as there were so many great spots within a minute or two walk. There are 3 or... More

We had got a free room night at the Novotel. We choose to stay here for the location which right in the heart of all the action. The best part of the hotel is the location. The rooms are a little small with a tiny balcony. If u want to just to be close to the center this is great... More
