The team at Novotel Hamilton was excellent from the moment I entered the lobby, to check-in and valet parking. The breakfast was expansive and a wide selection of options available, and did I mention the "real" coffee from a barista. The beds are comfy and the room was spotless.

Hi, I was looking to book us in at the Novotel Tainui, in late December. Iv'e stayed many times on business and the stay has been fine but after reading the previous review regarding the road noise i'd just like an update on this please as my husband & i will be travelling with our baby so excessive road noise will not be suitable for us. Or if you could recommend a particular room that would limit any noise that would be great. Many thanks
We found no noise problems at all-a very nice ,quiet spot...

Hi, I would like to know if I can charge my iPhone in the hotel without bringing an adapter ?
Not sure, but suspect so. Ring the hotel front desk and ask...the hotel staff is incredibly customer oriented.

How much for parking
Valet parking is the way to go! $20.00 per day/night. The spaces outside hotel are supposed to be "drop off only" but some guests seem to think that doesn't matter and leave there cars there the whole time they're staying!
