Jacqueline H. Business - 23/02/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

When I arrived they said I did not have a booking and I showed them an email from Booking.com an also an email from Novotel offering an opportunity to upgrade The manager then was called and she eventually found the reservation I have stayed many times at the Novotel but this time my bed was very Lumpy and too soft. An average stay co pared to previous.

Run down hotel that classes itself as 4.5 star when it is really a 3 star at its best, very dated and shabby.

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Nardene Q. Friends - 23/02/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The staff are lovely, but that is where it ends, very dated, dirty room, black mould on the fire sprinkler, one sprinkler was covered in, dirty toilet roll holders and dirty handles where towels are kept, my mattress had either a massive blood or that coloured stain on it, the carpet was torn, the wardrobe door would not open / close it was jammed shut, the very dated and old wooden thing that the soap was left on was very rough, the fan in the bathroom was covered in dust and grime, therefore didnt actually work, the power socket in the bathroom had different paint where they had tried to touch up but the colour didnt match, the toilet was green and dirty from scum, also the shower had a lot of water and soap scrum. Overall I would give you a one, but the staff were so nice that I gave you a three.

David F. Couples - 22/02/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Original booking at Pullman transferred to Novotel due to flooding. Not the fault of either hotel but we weren’t informed until we received automated cancellation email the night before our stay. Disappointing that neither Pullman or Novotel went out of their way to acknowledge the breakdown in communication with us.

Great location

Alistair M. Couples - 21/02/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

It was 30 years ago since our last visit to Rotorua so things have changed somewhat. The Novotel provided us with a great base to visit the region , close to town and the lake for walks after a couple of hard days of fun and thrills.. The hot pools and bar area served us well , the Seafood buffet was amazing .. We will certainly be back..

Wedding anniversary

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Paul S. Couples - 21/02/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Way above our expectations. Transferred from the Pullman due to water pipe issue there. Our room was upgraded, a welcoming bottle of wine in our room followed by the personal delivery of a fruit platter. We were given a two-hour beverage and food package, free drinks & one bar meal each. The staff was so friendly, welcoming and with all the extras staff and management went beyond normal duty for our special weekend. A HUGE thank you to you all. You made our 30th wedding anniversary one to remember!

Susan W. Couples - 18/02/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Enjoyed our stay however.........for what we were charged we were disappointed with the room. Carpet very worn and dirty and furniture certainly needed upgrading. For the two day stay we were only left one facecloth each day, plus one hand towel one day. Can't complain too much but again room certainly not to our expectations.

Great location, and comfortable stay

A mystery weekend booked through Air NZ, and we had a great time. The hotel is close to town, eateries, and the lake. Bonus hot pool free for guests, and the buffet breakfast was superb. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay

we were booked to stay at Pulman but was more than happy to be staying at Novatel - great location and view

Value for money was not good

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Claudia Families - 16/02/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

- Very overpriced for an old and tatty room. - Bathroom not up to standard I would expect of a Novotel. All facilities worn and uninviting - Experience not in line with the money I have spent for the nights I stayed expecting a Premium hotel experience. - Felt treated like second grade customer because I booked via third party when speaking with the staff member for check-in - Had to follow up on cleaning service via guest service Positive points of the hotel - Location - Bed comfort

O for AWESOME stay, what an experiance!!

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Hennie Couples - 15/02/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very friendly and professional front desk staffs (think her name is Harmony:-) as well as the restaurant staffs. We received a 5 star treatment for sure!!!! This was the first time staying at Novotel Rotorua and the experience was way more than expected. We will definitely go back again in the near future.
