My fiancee and I were looking for a reasonably priced stay in Queenstown. The Novotel met our budget and location requirements, so we were very happy to find it. We had a pleasant stay; the staff were friendly and helped us find our way to the ever popular Fergburger (a must, by the way). The room was comfortable, and you just can't beat the hotel's location. It's close to everything.
The only complaint we had was the parking situation. You have to park you car in a private garage on another street. The hotel charges your room $10 per day, but they are in no way linked to the garage other than paying a bill. So when we had some issues with our ticket, we had to find a way to get in touch with the garage company since the Novotel staff quickly said it wasn't their problem. We were not happy with this part of our stay at all, and felt that they if they were going to force us to use this privately owned garage, that there should be a better system somehow. Just beware of this fact.
