Was a wonderful place to stay. We booked last minute & didn't arrive till 11pm, but the staff were very friendly. As we drove through the Main Street we were very concerned as we could hear the music getting louder from the clubs & bars over our music in the car & the Novotel getting closer, but we couldn't hear...

Stayed here recently and was impressed by the location of this hotel. Easy to access most restaurants and the main shopping precinct via foot. Room nice, clean and modern. Beds extremely comfortable...perhaps the nicest i have ever slept on! Breakfast was good too, plenty of selection and a very pleasant restaurant setting. Just a note that car parking is additional...

This is a fine hotel in the centre of exciting Hamilton. Well, may be not so exciting but still a good base to explore the tantalizing Waikato region. Well, maybe not so tantalizing after all. So, why the hell are you here? Ah, business! The hotel is quite modern with really a very nice lighting layout in the rooms, making...

A breath of fresh air from check-in to check-out. Friendly staff and lovely, spacious room. The room service meal was exceptional but particular notice should be paid to the check-in staff member who was the most welcoming person.

Nowra, Australia
Reviewed 24 January 2014

We stayed here for one night. It was a well appointed hotel. It had a guest laundry which was great. The breakfast was superb. We had to get two rooms to accommodate our family, and I would have liked to have had a interconnecting room so I could keep an eye on the kids. They were put across the hall.

Fantastic hotel, great location. Very clean and extremely helpful and friendly staff. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay in Hamilton. The location is central city so very close to all pubs, shops and easy trip to the suburbs from here.
