imperialstamps Friends getaway - 16/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

My first visit to Christchurch since the earthquake ,the hotel is ideally central, alas my room had issues with stains on the floor, carpet in need of a good clean with some hairs found on the toilet and vanity .I paid a high price for this room despite being an Accor member ,the second time my hotel visit with Accor has resulted in stained carpet and issues. Service was good ,but did i feel valued?

Room is nice but parking is the problem. No parking space available after 4PM. Also limited choices in the restaurant.

Greetings from Novotel Christchurch! Thank you for choosing Novotel Christchurch for your recent stay in the garden city. We are pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay. Your concerns regarding parking and restaurant offerings have been noted and passed onto the team. Novotel does offer two parking options, however, like majority of CBD hotels unfortunately, does not have enough available spaces per hotel room. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope to see you back again in the near future. Kind regards, Brooke Sumner Front Office manager

GeoffDee1 Solo travel - 14/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

This property is ideally situated in the city centre, adjacent to the shattered cathedral that provides a persisting reminder of the devastation caused by the earthquake. The room was comfortable with good quality sheets and towels and the staff diligent and friendly. The only real downside was the restaurant - no one visible at the egg station for the breakfast buffet most days and tinned fruit (Really! In a country overflowing with the best of fresh produce...…) . Dinner was also very disappointing, with the taste and texture suggesting too much use of the microwave.

Hello GeoffDee1 Thank you for taking the time to write a review of Novotel Christchurch Cathedral Square. You have provided some particularly valuable insights that I’ve been able to discuss with my respective teams. I’d like to apologise for the F&B offering that didn’t meet your expectations. We hope to see you back again soon

Rod M. Couples - 13/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Everything was superb, but the main thing we noticed was how friendly and helpful all the staff were. we had been sick for 6 days so we booked in a day earlier, it was nice to relax in a clean room, comfortable bed and have a 24hr. movie package with a great selection. Again though the staff, check in, restaurant staff, movie fix it man and the cleaner who thanked us for staying with Novotel and giving best wishes for our flights home. Your staff are worth their weight in gold

r0dm15 Couples - 12/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

We had a wonderful 2 days in Novotel Christchurch. We booked in a day early as we had been sick for the last 6 days. It was wonderful to be surrounded by some lovely and helpful people, checking in (concierge) the restaurant staff on 2 nights, the food was superb, the fix it man who got our movies going and the cleaner who thanked us for staying & best wishes for the flight home. Stay again anytime.

Hello r0dm15 What an amazing review. Hearing we have helpful and friendly staff is the best compliment I can receive as a general manager. We hope to see you back again soon

Would not stay again
