This is a nice place to stay, even if it's "fancy French" style can come off as silly or just out of place. While the croissants are good and there are Hermes bath products and a lobby full of chandeliers, I never felt like I was actually in France--or even in a French run hotel. The staff is international as are the guests. The hotel has very little to do with its location--it could be in Dubai or hong kong, but it's a high end hotel product and it's in a good location in Queenstown.
The last few times I visited Queenstown, I stayed ay the Crown Plaza, Blanket Bay, and a B&B. For me the B&B was the best experience. I walked by he Novotel and thought it looked very nice and well located--may try it next time if I don't arrange a B&B.
