This Novotel is similar to others in room set-up and such; that is to say that it is a fine quality hotel with comfortable sized rooms. This was our base for our visit to Hobbiton. The hotel is right in the downtown so since everyone wanted something different to eat, everyone was happy. Nearby is a casino, bowling alley and arcade.
The bar has great beer selection and many seats and lounge space.
The only negative is that wifi is only free in the lobby for 30 minutes or a small mb usage (which means you won't make it close to 30 minutes). This is a Novotel policy and not a fault of this hotel; maybe Novotel will remedy this for their chains. You can use a computer in the lobby for free but this defeats the purpose of privately checking your email and such.
Would also have liked a fridge in the room but as this was a 2 night stay it was not a huge burden.
