Spent two nights this week in a quick trip to Wellington on business. Location is good with easy access to the CBD and down to the waterfront. Room on the 9th floor was very comfortable with great bed, good modern and spotless bathroom, nice couch and desk. Just what I am looking for when away on my own on business. Breakfast was pretty good and overall the hotel was perfectly good value for what it was. Would recommend for similar trip

Room Tip: 9th floor room was very quiet

It was a short stay,very relaxing especially not having to worry about parking the car.Thought we were getting a harbour view but never mind may be next time.Very easy access to excellent shopping on Lambton quay.

A typical Novotel hotel with recently revised vivid rooms ! Excellent sleep comfort and immediate access to center town as well as to the cable tram.
The breakfast room, restaurant and bar however are too small and outweared unfortunately. Nice and friendly frontdesk staff while price / quality of the hotel is OK !

We chose to stay at Novotel Wellington through the Qantas Hotel deal scheme and utilised some frequent flyer points to score a good deal :D After accepting a kind offer of a generous early check-in we went to our 6th floor Superior King bedroom. A pleasant surprise ! An extremely clean bedroom with excellent lighting, good sized/solid desk with lighting and connectivity access. A sofa with a side table, good furnishing, decore and storage. A small bathroom (shower over bath) but immaculate and with good fittings. The bed linen was very good, pillows excellent and we enjoyed a good nights rest. Quick and easy access (via lifts) to Lambton Quay. Did not use parking or restaurant. Get a deal on line or with the Hotel direct and you won't regret it. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for higher level room and harbour view and you may be lucky ;) We got a small sighting of the ha...
