Awesome location ”

The hotel is located right in the middle of the major tourist and commercial area, so we could move around Wellington mostly on foot. The room was comfortable and reasonably well kitted. Not many dine-in options but there are good restaurants nearby. Staff are very helpful with recommendations on how to move about town. I forgot some valuables behind while checking out but the staff got them shipped safely to my next destination. Thanks for that!

Great hotel with great hospitality”

This hotel is located in the city center, although it is not in Lambton quay area but we can access to it via lift near the restaurant. It will get you down to the lambton quay, the shopping district and city center. What is great from this hotel is the hospitality, all of their front staffs are very friendly, helpful, and attentive.

Location, comfort ”

I loved the location right in the centre of town, the two big double beds ons the rooms were ideal for when traveling with a young child, the staff we very knowledgeable and friendly.

My stay at the Novotel was very good I have stayed here several times and will continue to do so. Everything is as you would expect it to be for a four star hotel. The breakfast is good and the rooms are nice. My only small complaint is that the parking is limited and not free however there is a public car park right next door which the Novotel have an arrangement with and it costs NZ$ 20 per day.

The location is ideal for inner city business and shopping. Staff were friendly and helpful, both on the Reception desk and in the dining area. Service was prompt and efficient. I did not eat at the hotel except for breakfast, which was very good, buffet-style. I would return again when next in Wellington and wanting a downtown location.

A pleasant overnight stay in Wellington”

location, room, view

We had a lovely night at the Novotel Wellington, the location was fantastic and allowed us to easily walk around the city centre and had ready access to food. We were a bit surprised that breakfast wasn't included in the room (to be fair I hadn't checked prior to arriving) but were easily able to find somewhere nearby. The rooms were nice and warm which was great given we were there in mid-June.

Baby cot available on request. Room was adequate, although mine had a leaking basin which wet the floor whenever the tap was on. Location was good for exploring cable car.

Excellent stay ”

We had an excellent time from the time we walked through the door. Wonderful front desk staff, they gave our little boy 2 toys (soft toy and changeable bendy straw) as a welcome present - he was rapt. The room was lovely, nicely decorated, clean, attractive (room 306), big tv, comfy bed, fluffy pillows, great selection of hot drinks/teas. Lots of hot water for shower and bath too (only small negative was turning on the shower was a bit awkward). Excellent buffet breakfast. Shame Internet access wasn't free. Also sorry to say the room service dinner wasn't nice at all - overcooked fish, very raw vegetables, the nachos weren't nice either. This didn't detract from our overall stay at all, just a bit disappointing. Very centrally located with Lambton Quay straight down in the lift, close to bus stops, lotsa shops and fast food shops. We would definitely stay here again.

It was as you would expect from a Novotel anywhere in the world. Clean, modern, amazing bed. The only things that kept it from being perfect were the bathroom layout (toilet behind the bathroom door??) and the fact there was no free WiFi. Most major hotels these days have a small amount of WiFi included- come on, Novotel, get with the times!
