We found accessing the hotel a bit difficult as outdoor carpark was full and had to do a couple of laps to work out where we could safely stop. We found all the staff very helpful, pleasant and courteous. The room was small and a bit cramped, with no luggage racks and having the hand basin in the main room, instead of the bathroom an unusual layout. The dinner menu we found excellent though and will happily recommend the restaurant.

Greetings from Novotel Christchurch! Thank you for taking the time to reflect on your recent stay with us. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and were well looked after by the team. Your feedback has been noted and whilst unique, the bathroom configuration of the rooms does optimise the space available.

Ian D. Couples - 09/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

It was a very nice hotel to stay in. A wonderful position. The staff were great. The complimentary upgrade was a pleasant surprise and the extended check out time was very much appreciated and helpful. The only negative was the size of the bathroom and the low water pressure from the unusually positioned shower head. However having the vanity separate from the rest of the bathroom was a very good idea.

Good welcome from reception, very efficient check in and a pleasant room overlooking the cathedral. Very good restaurant, though staff could be more knowledgeable about the menu choices, given the innovative descriptions. Mine was very tasty but very spicy. The waitress had told me it wasnt going to be at all!!!

It is overall good experience staying in the hotel (except no complimentary water for the guests). Breakfast is okay and can be better if have more hot dishes. However, the staff services at 1/F restaurant is quite good for all my 2 days stay. By the way, the online check-in is not working ...... from App dirvert me to website and also not able to find my record ..... but luckily I can get a room bit earlier than normal check-in time this trip.

I required to do some personal communications for my work and I needed assistance from the reception desk. The young lady was extremely helpful. Unfortunately I don’t recall her name . Also on leaving I confirmed that I would be returning on Thursday 13 February. I received an upgrade which I appreciate.
