We stayed for one week in the Novotel on our ski holiday. The location is perfect, everything in the town is only a short stroll away. A bonus was that most of the ski buses pick up from this hotel. Samuel on the concierge desk was so helpful in booking our transport everyday as well as rearranging our Milford sound... More

Wonderful stay at the Novotel Queenstown while here on our honeymoon and to ski. Jim & his team have everything down pat from checking in to access to the drying room. We stayed in a lakeside/lakeview room that had nice views of the lake and the hotel is in a very convenient location close to the centre of town. Will... More

We based ourselves at the Novotel for a week in a superior room. It was very well located to the town with lovely views over the lake and gardens. The rooms were well laid out, comfortable and well serviced. The staff were all very friendly and they had a good concierge service to help you with your ski gear etc.... More

The Novotel Queenstown is superbly located with nice rooms. However they dont have a self opening front door so if you have a number of bags you can end up doing a John Cleese impersonation getting to reception and stuck in revolving door. Service was good but computers crashed on check out so had to get receipt for payment 3... More

My friend and I stayed here for two nights while having a girls weekend in Queenstown,. The location is absolutely superb, no lake views but it's just so convenient being in the middle of town and within walking distance of everything. Room was clean, quiet, serviced regularly. We were allowed to check in early, leave our bags after check out... More

Stayed here with a husband and two teenage boys during our ski trip. Nice view and really close to everything: town, the lake, park, restaurants and shops, etc. Less than 15mins away from the airport, 1hr to Caldrona, 1.5hr to Wanaka by coach (we got the package tour from Kiwi discovery). Hotel has a family room, and kids enjoyed playing... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Room was spacious and clean and the hotel is conveniently located on the street next to the queenstown mall. Apart from the bathroom the room has a modern decor. Hope they renovate the bathroom soon! Internet connection was excellent. The hotel also has a small gym with a couple of treadmills and... More

The hotel is in the perfect location, right next to the lake, within easy walking distance to the town centre (100 metres) and next to a park on one side (Queenstown Gardens). We went for a family holiday and stayed in a superior room with twin double beds. The room was very comfortable, quiet and was always made up very... More

This Novotel is situated in one the best and nice cities of New Zealand, so it is easy to give positive feedbacks. But on its own respects all Novotel standards, with also a great position in town, almost in front of the lake and very central. This gives you the opportunity to go around and visit the very town center... More
