Reviewed July 29, 2013

Meets expectations, but staff exceeded with their warmth and professionalism. Second visit to this hotel and once again a satisfactory stay. Restaurant pretty average for the stars but nice when you don't want to hit Courtney Place or have an early start. Walking distance to the heart of the city. Shops close by. Te Papa (if your trip allows) should be a on your list.

Room Tip: No problems with any when I've stayed. No amazing views so can't comment sorry.

We found the Novatel Hotel fantastic. Easy with teenage children. They could come and go as they please, not too many stifling rules for them. They enjoyed themselves. The staff were obliging, the beds comfortable, plenty of space in the rooms. The buffet breakfasts were delicious, great choice and dinner also was delicious and very reasonable. I would reccommend this hotel for families.

This hotel was where we stayed during our visit to Wellington. It is well located and close to the CBD. There is a second lift located at the back of the restaurant which provides you with a quicker alternative way to get to the street behind the hotel. The hotel itself is about ten years old but still looks very modern and well maintained. The rooms are very clean and very quiet giving guests a restful sleep. Valet parking is provided (at a cost) although there is a bus stop right outside and taxi cabs regularly come and go so there is no shortage of public transport. The hotel's restaurant is a bit small but the service and quality of meals is excellent. There is also a bar adjacent. There is no business center here so people requiring to have emails or other documents printed, as we did, have to forward them to reception for printing.
The hotel would suit both the business traveller and leisure travellers given its location to the Wellington CBD. We found all of the hotel staff very friendly and welcoming and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Try for a harbour/CBD view.
