Novotel Christchurch Cathedral Square
4.4 out of 5

The staff at the above hotel were extremely pleasant and helpful and always had a smile on their face - very nice first thing in the morning! I did not enjoy the loudish, music played at breakfast each morning and also the same type of music in the bar in the evening. Our party felt the music was too loud at all times and and the choice of music leaves something to be desired. Otherwise, a very pleasant stay.

Our stay was absoloutely fabulous is all ways. The staff were always friendly and went out of their way to assist us at all times. Along with several smaller earthquakes, there was a large 4.9 aftershock that cut all power and was very frightening. The staff were extremely professioal and caring and made sure our safety and comfort was paramount, even running up 30 flights of stairs to get peoples bags and suitcases to their rooms when all the lifts were out. The car parking charge was $30NZ a day, but well worth it for our hire car as there is virtually only 5 min parking out the front and around the city is 3 hour paid meter parking. We came and went alot and the $30NZ was well worth it for the conveinence, security. The included buffet breakfast was nice and a lovely relaxing atmosphere of their restaurant. Overall a great stay and we will deffinatelty be going back to stay there for our next visit to Christchurch.

We stayed in both the main hotel and the heritage suites. I can reccomend the main hotel for great facilities. The heritage suites are a bit noisier but were clean and comfortable. Despite Christchurch still being hit by earthquakes the hotel staff were friendly and helpful to us.

Top rate hotel, staffed with smiling, helpful people. Perfect position for walking around Christchurch but whisper quiet for a good nights sleep. Highly recommended.

Booked a few months earlier and got a great bed and brekkie deal. Can't complain about the cost! The buffet breakfast had everything you could want and even though it finished at 10.30am we were still sitting around with friends chatting till noon and staff weren't pushing us out. Thought the bathroom a little small, with shower over bath a bit hard for some to step into. Thanks, Liam on Reception, you recommended some great restaurants to us. Very helpful. Would definitely stay again!

the location is fantastic, use the free shuttle buses that go around the city centre to get the feel of the place. Staff were lovely and always helpful. My only gripe is and I don,t know if any of the local hotels have is no swimming pool, that would have being so good to relax in at the end of a busy day walking. Check out the guided walking tours $15 nz available on the other side of the cathederal very worth it.

We stayed during the Earthquake. Very helpful staff and well looked after especially when the electricity went off at 6.50am with hot cooked breakfast by candlelight compliments of the management. Highly recommended.

The first thing that struck me ws the friendliness of the Staff as soon as you walked in the door. The check in was easy and again very helpful. The next amazing surprise was the size of the bed when I opened the door! Will call again.

We booked two rooms and although I feel that the Novotel is a lovely hotel there was a couple of negatives. In one of the rooms housekeeping did not replace the face cloths and in the other room we found the shower curtain was not a good fit and the water sprayed out beyond the curtain. They are only small things otherwise our stay at the Novotel was very enjoyable. We found all the staff members to be very helpful and friendly, we would certainly recommend the Novotel to others and we would certainly stay there again.

Great hotel and in a great location. The only complaint is the parking. You can use their valet for $25 otherwise you will struggle with parking in Christchurch. Overall though I would highly recommend it.
