4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Spent four nights here. The room wasn't spacious but it certainly wasn't cramped either. The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring the city or the surrounds. Standards here for cleanliness and friendliness are what you expect from Novotel and you shouldn't leave disappointed.

Not sure why this hotel is not ranked more highly. Its in a nice little corner of the CBD fronting the lake and the park and is a short walk to all of the cafes and restaurants. Its very quiet unlike anything on Frankton Road which cops traffic noise. We loved the position of our room on the 3rd floor... More

Hi Casa62 Thank you for your great review, as you mentioned our lakeside central location is ideal for our guests wanting easy access to all Queenstown has to offer while our proximity to the Queenstown gardens down ensure we are on the quieter side of the CBD. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to Queenstown.... More

We stayed one night and found it was in a great location. Try and book a lakeside room especially on the ground floor that goes out onto the park. Breakfast was a good selection and quite good value. We would stay here again on our next visit to Queenstown.

Tight squeeze for the family but worth it for the location. Good for a short stay. Didn't realize hotel parking was $20 a night but you can park overnight in the Wilsons for $11 an night. Free wifi in the lobby but not in the room.

Dear cameragod, Thank you for your review. Great to hear you enjoyed your family holiday with us. Our valet carparking is $20 per night however as you mentioned we do aim to provide our guests with a more cost effective alternative at the nearby Wilson's carpark.

Perfect location for shopping and eating our way through the city center of Queenstown. Short walk to where tours pick up as well. Room was average, staff was nice.
