The hotel is beautifully appointed. Our room 202 has a wonderful view of the Waikato River. Once again a fantastic bed which gave me the best sleep I have had for over 10 days. Check in was prompt and the staff polite and professional. I cannot fault this hotel.

My only complaint sadly ( as I had rated this place the best breakfast in NZ).. was the standard of the breakfast had plummeted. There were good options but it was cold, tasteless and tough. I...

This is a nice hotel with good character features and functional and quiet rooms with reasonable air con. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is suitable for this type of hotel, not stand-out but certainly good enough.

Check in was again uneventful the gentleman at the reception was very helpful. We had...

This was our fourth year that we have escaped the maddening rush of Auckland to the friendly relaxed air of the Hamilton Novotel on Christmas Eve for three nights. Every year the experience of the stay would get better for us. Which is why we would return. Our families are too far away for us to visit for Christmas and...
