B C M TripAdvisor review

We had a 1 night stay on our way to Hobbiton. The room on 4th floor was very clean and comfortable and met all our requirements. The bar and restaurant on site were great, and there were 3 restaurants right across the road. The staff were all very pleasant, particularly the guy on the bar who was so warm, friendly and hospitable, and the breakfast crew also were very kind. Our stay included welcome drinks and buffet breakfast, and overall gave us great value for a family of 4.

Lynne D. Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

All good my only comment would be arriving back after the races and watching the rugby with quite a big crowd and the bar closed before 11, many people were not happy

Kia ora Lynne, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, we appreciate it. I hope you were lucky at the races!! We hope to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards, Beverley Ball Guest Relations Coordinator Novotel Tainui Hamilton

Sharron B. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

The staff were friendly & helpful. We had a lot of noise on the night but the reception staff tried to sort that issue out for us. The room was more expensive than expected, as we have often stayed in Novotel Wellington & not had to pay $349 a night, plus $38 for parking. The breakfast was lovely apart from the bacon which was dried out

Kia ora Sharron, Thank you for your feedback, we can only move forward on our journey to pursue excellence if our valued guests, such as yourself, share their thoughts with us, so thank you. I noted in the Duty Log that you had complained about noise from another guest- and that this was duly dealt with by the Duty Manager please accept our apologies for any disturbance and inconvenience. We are grateful of your time and hope to see you again sometime in the future, Kind regards, Beverley Ball Guest Relations Coordinator Novotel Tainui Hamilton
