This hotel was conveniently located to major attractions in Wellington. The staff were friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were quiet. The décor was modern and chic. The elevator to the main street opened into a shopping mall with a great noodle café being the first place you see. The walk to the tram was less than a block from the elevator. I would have liked to stay longer at this hotel. We know where we are staying upon our return to Wellington!

If on business to Wellington again, I would stay here. Good, standard Novotel experience less than five minutes walk from the dead centre of town (although finding your way down to Lampton Quay from the Terrace can be a challenge for a newcomer). Did not have breakfast but the bar / restaurant always seemed to have people in it. Room was quite large and with a (broken) view over the harbour. Everything worked as it should. Wifi at extra cost.

I've been to Wellington before but this was my first time at the Novotel. Perfect location with the lift directly down to Lambton Quay from the hotel which meant shops, cafes and great restaurants were close at hand. The front desk staff, whilst not overly friendly,were helpful when needed. Housekeeping was good but given we stayed for 3 days I would like to see toiletry products replenished. On our last day we had the $20 full buffet breakfast which really was good value for the choices and quality of the food. Wifi access in hotels continues to be an issue and Novotel is overpriced. Overall I would recommend this hotel as good value and great location.
