We only stayed one night, but I wish it could have been longer. A nice clean hotel room, very comfortable beds and pillows. A quiet room and a good nights sleep. Thank you Novotel Tainui

Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast restaurant had plenty of options and great variety. Spa and outdoor space could do with an update to look more inviting and refreshed to be seem as a relaxing outdoor space.

It’s in a great location and the room was a decent size. The carpet and furniture had some sort of food stains, the info booklets were very tatty. Would recommend using the valet service as parking is limited due to the renovations currently taking place.

Awesome stay, room was clean, food was nice, service was good other than room service forgetting the kids drinks with their meals. When asked reception where the nearest dairy/supermarket was she said it was 15 min walk but found a dairy right around the corner from hotel. Other than that i would recommend to friends and family as everything else was worth the price we paid.
