Jilly P. Couples - 05/04/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

As it was the night before the complete lockdown it was a great relief to be able to stay as my husband had just been diagnosed with cancer and had to go for a Nuclear Scan in Hamilton at 8.00am on the first day of lockdown and we didn't want the stress of driving from Tauranga to Hamilton early in the morning. Having booked a week before I appreciated the staff taking the time to listen to our reasons for staying we had been in isolation completely for 3 weeks since his diagnosis. Room service was appreciated

As the stay was with other family members for a weekend away and catch-up, but also to celebrate a birthday for my wife Janene. All in all from check-in to check-out the service from everyone was nothing but professional, courteous, and friendly. As Janene and I stayed at the hotel the same time last year (2019) and previous years also it is to be noted that all parts of the hotel have been well maintained and kept clean and tidy. The rooms are as they have been on previous stays, clean, tidy, well appointed and truly welcoming. it was nothing but a pleasure to stay at the hotel once again and will certainly stay again for what ever reason.

My stay was ok, nothing exceptional

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Mark Business - 25/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Stayed for 2 nights to attend a training workshop external to the hotel. During that time I interacted with the front counter, bar and breakfast teams. In all cases the interactions were ‘ho hum’. From my point of view, there were great opportunities for the Novotel team members to build rapport with me. Unfortunately at no point did a single one of the numerous people I interacted with seem to want to take an active interest in me as a customer of the hotel. There were great opportunities to ask me about what bought me to the hotel, my thoughts on the hotel environment, where I was from or simply how my day had been etc etc. Instead, the team members just seemed to be going through the motions and were task focussed rather than customer focussed. Therefore from my perspective, I didn’t feel particularly valued as a customer.

Dear Mark C., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Novotel Hamilton Tainui. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. At Novotel, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future.
