If I had room in my suitcase I would have taken the bed with me. It was incredible. Sure, the hotel is beautiful, I had a huge room, I appreciated USB chargers in the wall. The shower was amazing. But nothing compels staying in a hotel like a bed beyond comfortable.

Stayed: October 2017, travelled solo

The rooms are tastefully decorated and have all the latest technology. They are comfortable and spotlessly clean. The food at both breakfast and dinner was excellent. The hotel is centrally situated, within walking distance of the shops.

We Hamilton locals generally consider Novotel to be one of the nicest hotels in town (I've lived here for nearly 4 years now). So, I was looking for something special when I booked a night here to stay with my husband to celebrate his birthday.

I made my booking online. In the comments part of the page, I mentioned that we were celebrating my husband's birthday. I asked for a view of the river.

When we arrived, the check-in process was quick and easy. The reception staff members were friendly and warm and wished my husband a happy birthday. She even said, "We managed to get you a room with a river view." Awesome - I love places that pay attention to details!

We got to our room and it was beautiful! It was spacious and the decor was modern and comfortable. I was amazed that there was a "pillow menu" to order form (although, mine were fine so I kept what I had).

The staff had also (at no charge to me), left a gorgeous fruit, nut and cheese plate in our room, with Happy Birthday written in chocolate around the rim of the plate. Additionally, there was a handwritten birthday card beside the plate, addressed to my husband. It was incredibly thoughtful and again, I really appreciated the attention to detail.

As part of a online booking special, we had breakfast at the hotel the following morning for $1 each! That's right, $1. It was a huge buffet style breakfast with an incredible amount of variety of options - cold cereals, eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, cold meat slices with cheese, pastries, muffins, breads (and even gluten-free ranges). Coffee was included and we each had a flat white. It was all very, very good.

I will definitely return and encourage any visitors I have needing accommodation to stay here while in Hamilton.

Room Tip: We asked for a room with a river view and it did not disappoint

The hotel itself is what you would expect for Novotel. The rooms are well appointed although our air con was very noisy which effected our sleep. The bathroom was a little dated but I understand they are refurbishing these. Parking is expensive given it's a regional city and the main street is dead. The restaurant was what you would expect although the breakfast was particularly good. Check in and check out was smooth.
