Do you have parking?
Yes parking is an added fee, though they usually put a bottle of water in your car which is a nice touch.

If you’re planning to stay at the Novotel in Christchurch like I did, I suggest look into the AccorHotels website and subscribe with them. They send out 40% discounts sometimes. If you like 4-5 star luxury I do recommend the Novotel which I was very satisfied with the place. If it doesn’t interest you, they’re some other hotels you could look into as well. Hope this helps 😀

You have not reached the Novatel Hotel in Christchurch. I am just a very frequent traveler that enjoyed our stay at this hotel in Christchurch. I highly recommend it since has a great location to everything and was furnished beautifully. Staff was wonderful, rooms were great, food was delicious. Enjoy

"Level 6 or above for a view."
"Suite rooms on 13th floor have fantastic views"
"Views of the city are good, the mountain views from 1207 were lovely to wake up to."
"Close to the action"
"Most rooms have good city views. Higher rooms, better views to distant hills. Despite being in the centre of town, rooms are quiet."
