Nickels and Dimes
Hotel itself is fine. Surrounding areas still show the impact of the series of EQs that hit Christchurch but that is not the fault of Novotel. My main issue with the hotel is the nickel and diming that seems to apply everywhere from wifi access to printing and parking.

Location & helpful staff

Walking distance to all downtown sights etc.
Beautiful hotel, personnel were all very helpful. The only problem we had was in the restaurant, so many people waiting on us,but, poor service. Simple things like salt and pepper and a spoon for soup, took way too long to get. But they did offer us tea and coffee after dinner to make up for the service.. Would definitely stay there again. Very handy to botanical gardens and downtown shopping area.

Really go the extra mile for guests
Hotel is great and staff are helpful. Aside from that, I left my passport in the safe when I left and the hotel was so diligent in helping me find a solution and getting it back. Great communication and follow through. Could not have asked for more, they took the worry away. 5 stars from me and that's when you see a hotel's true service.

Overall a 3-4. Housekeeping was poor. Didn't replenish coffee and didn't tidy up slippers. Staff was very nice otherwise.
