Great hotel for local touring

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

dfall Couples - 16/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

The staff at the hotel provide an excellent level of customer service being both personable and professional. The rooms are reasonably sized and the breakfast provides a good spread. The restaurant menu is more than adequate for most people's needs and food is served promptly. There is valet parking available which operates well and the hotel is adjacent to a river and local shops including a large variety of restaurants. I will be recommending this hotel to friends.

Nice venue and staff but breakfast very poor

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Chris I Business - 14/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

The majority of my stay was great but for the terrible breakfast. I had a buffet cooked breakfast which was cold. the scrambled eggs and bacon were look warm at best. I will seriously consider not havong breakfast here in future.

Much better this time.

Great experience, staff helpful. There were a few problems with restaurant when we ordered dinner. The bread wasn't what we ordered. Only problem was a false fire alarm.

Aircon problems

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Ed Families - 12/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Aircon was broken. The actual room temp would not go down even though the temp in the indicator had been put to coolest possible. Called staff to checked and came 10 mins after which is reasonable. The staff acknowledged the issue and went back downstairs to talked to the mgr in charge. Did not hear anything until i called again 45 mins later. Only then we were given another room. This was not acceptable as the room was HOT!!!

Kia ora Edwin. Happy New Year. Thank you for reaching out with your review. I'm so sorry that this stay wasn't the great and seamless experience you've hoped for. We have been able to identify an unusual system error in our BMS air condition control that was rectified during the day. This system controls the temperature gauge in rooms and suspect this could be a reason where the themostud did not communicate to any manual change made in few room. We're so sorry if the team did not revert back as they would have not been aware of the fault at the time however I agree that we should have promptly followed up with our guests and a learning here for the team particularly when guest travelling with kids and this being your return stay with us. Please be assured that we've since tested rooms and ensured to avoid a reoccurence. We do hope to see you again in Hamilton and should you choose to stay with us, please reply all to this email and we will ensure to look after you. Have a great week ahead.

The room was well appointed and spotlessly clean. I did not like the lillies at reception desk. The pungent ordour filled reception area and triggered a sneezing fit.

Stage Friends - 12/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I class Novatel as being a middle type of hotel with all that you need in it. It never wows you, but it is sufficient. Staff are always okay, but not exceptional. All in all it is a good middle of the road hotel to stay at.

Wonderful Newlyweds Surprise!

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Newlywed Families - 11/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed with our family and friends when we married at Hamilton Gardens (an incredible venue!). The staff at Novotel were very accommodating for our group. The rooms were clean and tidy; the staff friendly and helpful. My new husband and I were very surprised to have our room decorated with flowers and a cold bottle of sparkling rose when we returned to our room as newlyweds. The only frustrating bit was the construction at the front entry to the hotel when coming and going. But construction doesn’t last forever!!!! Thank you Novotel Hamilton.

Dear Kris, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback and congratulations on your recent wedding. We look forward to being of service again in the near future. Regards Philip Hilton - General Manager Novotel Tainui Hamilton
