Deb C. Families - 18/01/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We were in a new river side room. The room was very comfortable and nicely decorated the only small downside was the bathroom door we had bit of trouble with it locking and unable to open it.

Great hospitality.

Not sure I trust Novotel Hamilton

Customer review rating 4.4/5

William Families - 18/01/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a great stay enjoyed the hotel and stay but we left an iPad in the room, no one called or emailed us to tell us this was left in the room, we ended up coming back to the hotel to stay another night, again no one mentioned or told us we left an iPad it wasn’t until the next day after checkout I asked if they might have it and they went out the back and got it. It seems strange they don’t report lost property and this has left me unsure I trust this hotel and we won’t ever be returning to this hotel due to this dodgy encounter.

Easy and perfect.

The 1 and only downfall was the colour of the spa pool water, leading us to not have a spa during our stay. The water was murky and grey.

Great hotel but the bed was way too soft

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Fiona Business - 17/01/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Everything about Novotel was great except for the bed. It was far too soft and I woke up several times during the night with a sore back. I would only stay again if there was the option for a firmer bed.

Dear Fiona H., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Novotel Hamilton Tainui. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. Please note we do offer a variation in our mattress that may be more to your liking. We can remove the topper which will firm up the bed or we can also add a firming board underneath the base to add further support. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Grayson Croasdale Front Office Manager Novotel Tainui Hamilton

Great stay in a great location

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Lauren Couples - 17/01/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

My husband and I stayed at the Novotel as we were attending a wedding in Hamilton. When we walked in, the FOH staff were friendly and welcoming. Our suite was lovely and clean. It also had a great view overlooking the river and we appreciated not being on the side of the Main Street, which meant we could get some sleep! We included the buffet breakfast when booking the room. It was nice to not have to try and find somewhere to eat and there was a variety of foods and beverages for us to choose from. We also appreciated having a secure car park to leave our car in as we were able to walk everywhere we needed to go. Checking out was fast and easy. We would happily stay here again.
