Even though it's part of a chain, the Novotel, Hamilton is warm and friendly. All the staff from check-in, the concierge, the bar and dining room staff were excellent. Great food and very clean and comfortable room. My only complaint is that they don't offer free wifi in the room. In today's world, that should be a given.

I had several nights in this hotel which is well positioned in central Hamilton. The rooms are large and comfortable. I had a room at the front of the hotel which I found noisy and so was able to move to the back of the hotel for the remainder of my stay. The restuarant food is excellent and the staff...

While the hotel is located very centrally, and is in a good condition, the following has resulted in this poor review. 1. When I arrived and checked in, there was a significant issue in that the...

Dear Guest. Thank you very much for your response in regards to your stay with us and the service experience that you encountered.

A recent 3 day trade stand experience was made considerably more enjoyable by staying in the Novotel Tainui. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the staff friendly and helpful. What the business traveller most needs is a hassle free experience and a good night's sleep. The fabulous beds at the Novotel certainly assure the latter. i would always choose...

Stayed at Novotel Hamilton last night. Have stayed there several times over the past few years - probably the nicest large hotel in Hamilton, in my opinion. Last night was as good as always. Rooms are fresh and clean and modern. Comfy beds, great location ( walking distance to loads of cool bars, cafes and restaurants). Pillow menu is fun....
