Nice Rooms, Bad Food

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Kaz, B. Solo - 21/07/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Excellent rooms with great amenities, staff were please take and always helpful, however being in a managed facility In isolation for two weeks isn’t a holiday or a walk in the park. The food was mostly bad during the stay. Not sure why as I know other manage facilities had choices of what 3 meals they wanted daily during there stay. I wondered why we never got a choice and served a whole lot of rice and curry dishes and lots of carbs as in pastas. We probably had a handful of good meals which usually arrived at the very end of service, which I actually had to ring guest service asking if they had missed my meal. I think if the food had been much better then what It was I would of had a much more pleasant stay at the facility. Overall my stay was below average.

Dear Caroline W., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at Novotel Christchurch Airport. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. Based on your feedback we have altered our menu making it more balanced, incorporating vegetables with every meal and bigger portions of salads. We have also made changes to ensure the meals are not heavy on carbs as we do understand that our guests are spending most of their time in rooms. We understand that it is a difficult time for our guests and would like to do everything we can do to make their stay most comfortable. Thank you again for your feedback and I hope you will give us another opportunity to better serve you, under different circumstances. Sincerely, Varun Bhatia Rooms Division Manager

We booked and paid a room in the Novotel in Christchurch on the 11th of March ($262.00) reservation No.33106 one night from 24/03/20 to 25/03/20 .On arrival we got transferred to the Sudima (Christchurch Airport) On checkout they charged us $262.00 again (invoice No.74913). I contacted your office on the 27/03/20 by phone and was told the money would be put back in to my account, but so far this has not been done. Regards H. L.

Yvonne C. Solo - 02/04/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I was not able to stay at Novotel airport at Christchurch airport as the hotel notified me they were shutting their doors at noon the day before I was to arrive.

Dear Mrs C., I understand your frustration and I also understand that the hotel closing put you in a delicate situation. I am very sorry about that. However, like any other retailer or business in New Zealand, we have followed our Prime Minister's instructions, shifting to Covid-19 Level 4 emergency level and this upon extremely short notice. Therefore, it is with a heavy heart that we have had to close the hotel off the cut. Priority is given, in those trying times, to ensuring that the spread of the virus is contained, making sure that New Zealanders are safe by abiding by the Ministry of Health rules and decisions. Again I am deeply sorry that this decision has affected your booking and I totally sympathize with you. I do hope that you have been able to return home safely. Kind regards. Olivier LACOUA. General Manager
