    Convenient and clean hotel
    Christchurch is still being rebuilt after the 2010 earthquake. This hotel is in the middle of the reconstruction so not a pretty sight. Property lacks pool/sauna/jacuzzi. Concierge is great but Checkin can be improved.

    Excellent location in the heart of Christchurch
    Great location. Excellent breakfast set up. No free WIFI or free parking only real downside.

    Great Hotel for A Night
    Having the guest laundry onsite was great. Was disappointed we had to pay for wifi.

    Great location in Christ Church
    We enjoyed our stay in Christ Church and found the Novotel at Cathedral Square to be a perfect location for us to both sightsee and walk to local restaurants in the evening.
