I often stay Ellerslie area in Auckland for business as close to our office. Usually stay Ibis next door (3.5 star) and this was first time in more upmarket Novotel (4/4.5 star). If you don't know, both hotels are part of Accor Group and these two share common reception/restaurant/bar etc. facilities. Novotel rooms and bathroom are most spacious, unlike Ibis which is cramped. Excellent bedding and desk/computer connection facilites BUT as per Ibis next door the internet service which is outsourced to some outside provider is very hit & miss. I took a week package with 7000mB allowance and within 2 days it was asking me to pay more despite me being nowhere near the limit. Reception got it reset for me OK, but then not long after it was asking me did I want to slow my speed as I was close to the limit - again wrong ! So So So annoying !! Apart from this gripe everything else about Novotel is very good. Another advantage for Novotel over Ibis next door is that Novotel does not face busy road - very quiet. Really enjoy the bar area. In-house restaurant ok but better quality and value outside. Service from hotel staff also very good. All in all for the price the Novotel Ellerslie is very good value stay in Auckland.
