“Outstanding Establishment upholding the Accor Brand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2011

Having arrived after 3 nights in the Customs St Auckland Mercure, the Novotel Hamilton made the Auckland Mercure rooms look like a 2 star dump.
It was very pleasing to be received and attended to by a very friendly, efficient and helpful team. Food and beverages on offer are excellent with a talented team of chefs serving up a storm for the taste buds of local and seasonal produce complemented by a well priced wide range of local and imported beers & wines, which can be enjoyed in the welcoming atmosphere of the restaurant or the privacy of our suite. All the emenities and facilities were in excellent well maintained condition offering a wide range of in house locations to relax and enjoy our stay. The location of the hotel is excellent right on the river in the heart of Hamilton with excellent parking arrangements and valet service.
Hamilton has much to offer and once you step outside the hotel lobby you are in a vibrant shopping strip offering excellent opportunities to satisfy any craving for retail therapy a rumbling hunger or serious thirst.
This was our first visit to Hamilton and it won't be the last. There is so much to enjoy in and around Hamilton from the magnificant river, parks and gardens, the zoo and the local atmosphere.
In summary Novotel Hamilton and a very well located, appointed and priced hotel offering a modern New Zealand atmosphere, well done and I look forward to my next visit to NZ.

We enjoyed our stay however some of the staff in the resturant were just not quite on the game. One waitress threw the knifes and forkes on the table at the breakfast time saying she was busy. The meat in the food bar smelt very strong. In the light it was covered with a green sheen. I let the waitress know, but had the feeling that she was not concerned, and then saw the meat restocked with still the same smell. Not a good look for everyone to get ill. The room was great, front desk service very friendly and helpful.

Modern building in the centre of Hamilton. The room was bright and practically furnished with flat screen. Soft mattress, windows could not be opened.
Very small gym with 4 pieces of equipment, 2 small saunas. We booked early and got the room at a very favourable price.
The restaurant offered a variety of meals, nice to look at, but rather tasteless. The breakfast offer was good. Parking fee $ 10, Valet Parking $ 15.
