Loved everything about our stay at the Novotel. The beds were really compfortable and room was made up every day ! lovely friendly staff and very helpful tour desk. We will definately stay at this hotel again - Will be back again next winter :)
The beauty of Queenstown is that it is a great place to travel all year around - with lots of activities that do not require snow (although Winter is a fantastic time to visit also).
We do hope that you will come to explore our region again soon - dont wait a year.
Thanks for your review
The hotels central location makes it an ideal base for a queenstown holiday. You do not need a hire car when staying here. I would stay here if I ever return to queenstown based purely on its convenience. I recommend not having breakfast in the hotel as there is so many yummy little cafés surrounding the hotel! The tour desk in the hotel was helpful and competitively priced for most activities. The only downside to the hotel was the rooms were a little on the small side and could be quite stuffy when trying to sleep! This would not put me off staying here again though and I do recommend it for people planning to spend most of their time out exploring this beautiful area!
Thanks for your review - you are correct there are many very nice cafes in Queenstown but readers should not dismiss the breakfast that we offer which is different to these - the extensive buffet that we have with make your own waffle station, fresh fruit juicer, Asian dishes, baked salmon, huge range of hot and cold items offer something for everyone without having to go out.
Those travelling with kids can dine affordably with kids up to 16 dining free when accompanied by an adult - and Le Club Advantage Plus loyalty members getting discounted meals also.
The Hotel has a range of tapas and light dishes at the bar in the afternoon/evenings and there is an a la carte restaurant also so no need to go out if you do not want to.
Good to hear you would come back - we hope to see you soon
Very conveniently located in Queenstown. We could not fault anything in our Lakeview room. Very clean and well presented. An easy stroll to the local restaurants and shopping precinct. And good value for money. Would happily stay here again.
Thanks for your review and recommendations to others.
You are correct in your recommendation about getting lakeviews in winter but this being limited in Summer - we call these rooms lakeside rather than lakeview however in Summer there is a lot of activity on the lakefront and these rooms are still very popular.
We hope to see you again soon - always lots to enjoy in Queenstown at any time of the year and our location gives a great base to enjoy it all from.
Totally loved our stay here for 3 nights with my family & friends. So nice of them to give our kids a welcome gift (stuff toys). Perfect location too, very close to Gondola and just at the center of the town, just walking distance to everything. We'll definitely stay here again to our next Queenstown holiday.
Welcome gifts for young children is just one of the features of the Novotel family offer - free breakfast for children dining with their parents up to 16, kids menus at night, play station in the lobby and Xbox available along with discounted second room for families - on top of this we have movie nights through the holidays and generally try hard to cater for the family market.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to you returning sometime soon.

Just as other Novotel hotels in other countries, Novotel Queenstown is nicely located. The staffs are well trained, the facilities and amenities are properly built/made. The heating system is GOOD, although it takes about 15 minutes to warm up the room in the winter.
The 30-minutes wi-fi must be done in the lobby, which is a bit inconvenience but it is 'compensated' by the unlimited internet access from the two computers at the lobby.
The advantage of staying in a commercial hotel is that you know you will get the consistency and expected standard anywhere around the world.
Thanks for your recommendation and advice to others about what they can expect when staying with us - it is important that we do offer consistency across our Hotels - but also we do try to give some extras as well so that we are too predictable.
Queenstown is a great destination and it is important that we reflect the local environment and relaxed nature of the resort - our team is encouraged to ensure that despite beinga relatively large hotel that we offer personalised service and look after people as friends.
We hope to see you again another time - thanks for staying
