Stayed here earlier this week.

great hotel in a good location. Arrived late staff and service is very good at this hotel. Parking prices were reasonable. They gave me a newly refurnised room which had some really neat modcons in it. Overall the room was great nice and new. Breakfast was very nice and well worth it. My only niggle is it took me ages to figure out how to turn the minibar fridge light off so i could get some sleep. Otherwise i had a great stay at this Novotel would return again.

Room Tip: level 10 is the only fully renovated floor

The central location is the biggest draw for me with this hotel. The rooms are comfortable and the service is good. The food in the restaurant is very nice.
Downs - no free wi-fi, no rooms with two bedrooms Pluses Nice service and sea views from some rooms.
I stay here regularly for business and was happy to stay here with my family as well.

Excellent location for access to major city tourist sites and shopping - lift from rear of dining room to Lambton Quay is a huge plus for quick access to shopping and transport (saves a 5 minute hill walk) and on return from a day's outing is a boon for weary feet returning to the hotel! Decor modern and updated within last 18 months, rooms at back some with harbour views are quietest but street noise not a particular problem at the front either. All Staff responsive and extremely helpful. Have stayed here many times for business and leisure and never been disappointed.. Stronlgy recommend the Novotel for a Wellington stay.
