Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   We had a lovely time staying at the Novotel. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was roomy and comfortable. The location is excellent as it is a short stroll to the lake and town. There was nothing that we had trouble with or didn't like. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we hope to visit again one day.

Review:   Very clean hotel and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. My room was made up every morning and everything neat and tidy. A very big thank you to the guys at the bar as they went above and beyond helping the customer. A special mention to Simone and Alessandro - A GRADE customer service! The staff at the front reception very polite and understanding. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Keep up the great work!

Review:   I could not fault my stay at Novotel Queenstown. I had a lovely second floor room with a little balcony looking out at blossom trees. It was great to be able to open a window at night. The room was clean with everything I needed. The lobby was inviting and comfortable. The staff were super helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

Review:   I thought that the hotel was very nice, I had a little different experience because I stayed in 3 different rooms in 9 days because I moved into a friend's room who was leaving early and I needed to book an additional stay which meant moving again. Each room had a different vibe due to some that were more modernized than others. Some needed more upgrades than others and you honestly wouldn't know that until you get in there. Pricing wise, the hotel was a bit high for a non-peak time of year. The staff was REALLY NICE at the front desk and at the experiences desk.

Review:   This is the second time I have stayed at the Novotel Lakeside and we upgraded to a lakeside room which I would definitely recommend. We were walking distance to everything and easy access for carparking as well with our car. Staff were all friendly, helpful and customer service from all levels was superb. You can't beat the location, I would definitely return!
