I was arriving on a midnight flight so rather than putting family out with a late night drive, I booked the Novotel Auckland airport. The hotel is located directly outside the airport from the arrivals hall so it was literally a walk from the plane and into bed (just with a few security checks along the way ;-). Check in at reception was fast and friendly with the essentials explained before heading up to my room and going to sleep.
Even though the room looked straight on to the airport, the double glazing does a great job of eliminating all noise, so had an uninterrupted sleep. The room is slightly larger than average with a king size bed, useable desk, lounge and a unique New Zealand design and feel which makes the room less than ordinary for a hotel room.
I used the gym in the morning and was really surprised at how good it was. It reminded me more of the fully equipped and staffed gyms you encounter in larger U.S. hotels, certainly not a small afterthought room and location in the hotel.
I had no complaints with any aspect of my stay and would recommend staying to anyone. My experience makes me feel more comfortable taking early flights or arriving late from Auckland knowing that the Novotel and her attentive friendly team will be there to make travelling easier.
