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:   A solid hotel option only minutes walk from Queenstown city centre. The room was nice and tidy with comfy beds, though the small bathroom with dated shower/bath/curtain combo is pretty uncomfortable. Lake view is fine for though largely obscured by tree so not worth the extra. A courtyard view room would have been just as nice. Staff very friendly and attentive to requests. The proximity to town is its biggest asset, you can be at any of the many restaurants in town within minutes on food. Would stay again.

Review:   Had ground floor lakeside room - lots of entertainment at front from backpackers slacklining and singing etc with guitars. Room quite nice.... room was dark, cool and quiet, beds comfortable and large pillow menu... we slept well which always makes everything feel better :) Queenstown is beautiful and so easy to get to things. Novotel is the pick I think for walking to anything in the town.... just so convenient

Review:   Positioned in just about the best location in Queenstown. Shops, restaurants and other attractions literally minutes from your room. Beautiful garden beds surround the rear, where you also get to take in the picturesque views of the lake. Lovely staff and the ambience of fresh flowers in the lobby and dining areas.

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.
