Hotel is very well located close to Auckland International Airport. Service was excellent and rooms are of a very high standard. We arrived in Auckland very late at night, and had to drive south to Lake Taupo in the morning so staying at the Novotel was a perfect option. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful.

This should be the standard for all airport hotels by no means perfect but very clean rooms if not a little cosy ie there was 2 double beds in our room but only 1 chair with a full house in room dining would be a challenge. The restaurant though was a highlight considering you are a captive audience so far from town prices weren't over the top and the food was sensational wine list is not exhaustive, but had enough choice to match the menu. Overall a most enjoyable stay and highly recommended to anyone flying into or out of Auckland.

Room Tip: There are two types of bathrooms if mobility is an issue avoid rooms with a bath very high step to get in and out of shower.

This hotel was unexpectedly good. If I had known more about it I would have stayed here longer. The facilities were better than it's cassification and the staff were very friendly and accomodating. It's proximity to the airport and to the greater Auckland area is very helpful.

Having used Accor Hotels on a number of occassions in the past we were delighted with the standard and service in this hotel.
We were particularly impressed with the fact that the building was so well sound proffed with an International air port at its door step

This must be the best airport hotel I have ever stayed in. The location can't be beaten -- it is right next to the international terminal. You can literally walk across the street to it, or you can even skip the street and take an overhead walkway from the arrivals hall. The reception staff are friendly, helpful, and competent.
The hotel itself is modern and sleek, with a rather minimalist decor emphasizing blond wood and stainless steel. The bedrooms are a marvel of thoughtful design and quality fixtures, with supremely confortable beds, a very well equipped desk, an excellent bathroom, and a good mini bar with coffee maker. There is even an ironing board and iron in the closet. I ate only breakfast at the restaurant but the buffet was excellent.
One gripe is that room internet is not free, and worse, there is a limit on how much you can download if you choose the almost $30 daily daily rate, so you if exceed the limit you have to start paying again from scratch. This won't affect most people, but could be a nuisance for business users dealing with a lot of documents, or tourists sending a bunch of photos home to their families. There is also free internet in the lobby for short term use.
