Great weekend away

My wife and I had a very enjoyable time at the Novotel. Staff were pleasant and efficient. Breakfast was yummy and plentiful. Ideally located for a stroll along the river, or to the centre of town. Will be back

Enjoyable Stay

The hotel was very convenient to where we wanted to go and it was very clean.The staff, however, was not very helpful. Still, I would recommend it to any traveler who wants to stay central in Hamilton.

Overnight stay while travelling

Check in was a slow process even though I had prepaid, not enough staff on the check in counter. No fridge in the room because of some unexplained reason although we did ask and recieve an ice bucket to chill our wine in.

Fantastic location in the heart of Hamilton

Very modern room with the most comfortable bed ever slept in. Family of three very comforatble in one room. Great location, staff and breakfast. In the heart of Hamilton within walking distance to cafe, restaurants and bars. Visited the Waitomo Caves an hour away with a car.

Always a pleasure

I have stayed here 5 times in recent years. They have recently renovated and the rooms are great. Docking station for iphone! Free parking for hybrid cars also. Definitely good value. When in Hamilton I would not stay anywhere else.
