“great Tainuihotel”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

Loved our stay at the Novotel. My husband and savour the moments when we have a relaxing meal out without the kids, we enjoy a good bottle of wine and just catch up. On this occassion we were settling in for the evening when a loud voice started behind us.
A gentlemen was on his cellphone and we heard it all, intimate details of desperation and lonliness. You originally feel for the guy but then as he goes on and on your compassion changes to shut up and let us enjoy our evening. After the second long and loud conversation, I had had enough and mentioned it to the staff. Nothing was done, but fortunately it stopped and he hooked into his book. There should be a policy on this.

Dear Guest. Thanks for the comments on tripadvisor about your stay with us. Really good to hear about your experience in the restaurant, where another guest was making his phone call. I will speak to my restaurant staff and advise that we can always request a guest to consider guests around them. Hope you had a good trip back home. Kind regards, Dick Breukink, General Manager

Great hotel in the heart of the CBD. Staff very helpful; rooms very modern, clean and spacious. Beds comfy; bathroom clean and well maintained; all necessary toiletries provided. Reasonably priced as well.
Good location near lots of restaurants; also close to the Casino (try the $5 breakfast there) and other shops.
Only complaint would be that the internet access was a bit pricey but that's not a major concern.
