We had our wedding in a place close to Queenstown where the guests and ourselves were mostly Australian. We had quite a large group stay at the Novotel Lakeside and I heard no complaints from anyone.
The staff were very friendly, everyone greeted you in the hallways.
The location was amazing, overlooking Lake Wakutipu. Although (and at no fault of the hotel) the public grounds can get busy and noisy during the day and peak nights (fri/sat). If noise is a concern then opt for a room overlooking the stream, the guests that stayed there said it was very relaxing hearing the water.
The rooms were always of a good standard although I was surprised at the number of small variations. Some had bigger TVs (not really a concern of ours) and some had nicer showers etc. I guess I assumed all rooms would be the same.
It was a great stay, a great wedding and a great time had by all in Queenstown.
