5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night and are very glad we chose the Novotel Tainui! The boys got ready here and staff cleaned the room up again for us so it was perfect when we got back that night. It was clean and tidy and the staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed an incredible buffet breakfast the next morning with everything you could think of! Loved it!

Very disapointed. Expensive hotel with mediocre "average" rooms, uncomfortable bed, thin towels, misted up bathrooms and a unhelpful "stern" front desk staff. Biggest gripe was the really expensive internet access. Cost nearly $30 for 24 hour access but the data allocation was used up after an hour on Facebook with a iPad. Then they wanted more money. I felt very ripped-off by this hotel. There are better places for less money in Hamilton.

Great Location in the heart of Hamilton and close to all the amenities you may need, also being just down a small lane meant less noise and a sense you had a more relaxed atmosphere.
The hotel is very clean and well run as you would expect from the Novotel brand.
The breakfast and other food was excellent although the breakfast area could do with new chairs which were showing a few signs of wear, but were still comfortable.
The service we had was great, especially in the eating and bar area.
Overall a memorable stay.
