“Good one QANTAS :)”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

We chose to stay at Novotel Wellington through the Qantas Hotel deal scheme and utilised some frequent flyer points to score a good deal :D After accepting a kind offer of a generous early check-in we went to our 6th floor Superior King bedroom. A pleasant surprise ! An extremely clean bedroom with excellent lighting, good sized/solid desk with lighting and connectivity access. A sofa with a side table, good furnishing, decore and storage. A small bathroom (shower over bath) but immaculate and with good fittings. The bed linen was very good, pillows excellent and we enjoyed a good nights rest. Quick and easy access (via lifts) to Lambton Quay. Did not use parking or restaurant. Get a deal on line or with the Hotel direct and you won't regret it. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for higher level room and harbour view and you may be lucky ;) We got a small sighting of the ha...

Novotel in Wellington was the last stop on our holiday. Was absolute amazing. Bar service was amazing. The drink I ordered came in a different type glass and I question if the drink came in it and the bar tender said no but he will do it for me. Room was a great size so was the bathroom. The hotel has a lift in the restaurant area that take you directly to the Lambton quay. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay at the Novotel again.

The hotel is good and the location is perfect! I love the shortcut lift to lambton quay, makes it really easy to go to the shops! For their toiletries, it would be nice to have a toothpaste included and also a microwave in the rooms would be good as well. We tried their dinner menu but unfortunately weren't impressed, it was too bland :( The staff were very very helpful and friendly! Thanks for the hospitality

Would recommend this hotel as a base in the Wellington CBD.
Convenient location in the city aided by a lift down to one of the city's main streets - Lambton Quay - otherwise Wellington's hills can take their toll!
Good sized room with modern amenities, and staying here with my son the double room featured two Queen sized beds, making it very comfortable.
Contemporary decor was pleasing but the curtains did have a disconcerting 'blood splatter' type design.
Only comments are that the hotel staff were a bit tight with soap and shower gel - we ran out on our last day.
I also have a general grip about hotels and Wi-Fi, How come backpacker hostels can offer free Wi-Fi but hotels still charge?

Room Tip: Water side rooms had great views - not so sure what the view to the hill side would be like.

Right in the cbd & there is access to Lambton quay via an in hotel lift. Room was comfortable and had a real king size bed. Room decor was a bit CSI crime scene with bloodstains on the curtains but otherwise really comfortable and quiet. Only issue is if you stay out beyond 7 pm you need to use your room pass to access the hotel from Lambton quay and for some reason mine decided not to work at that moment. Very long walk around to The terrace to access the hotel via the front door.

Room Tip: Free wifi in the lobby for 30 mins. Access to Lambton quay but only after check in so will need to a...
