HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 October 2016

I never expected my stay at the NNPH to be such a relevation. It is a Novotel, no less. I would have called it a Sofitel,. The quality of facility - the bed (I didn't want to get up the next day, it was so comfortable), the size of the room (even for two people it was bigger than my...

Enjoyed our stay at Novotel in New Plymouth. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean, tidy and very comfortable. The restaurant was great for dinner but the breakfast buffet was a bit average. Not happy about paying 2% surcharge on credit card.

Staff couldn't have been more friendly, from reception to housekeeping. The rooms are well appointed and still new so clean and tidy. Our room, as requested, was super quiet - facing away from the street. Good car parking, and excellent location. The only downside was the restaurant - food was a bit hit and miss, although we understand the chef...

We asked for some memory foam pillows from the pillow menu and they arrived immediately. Very pleasant staff who greeted us every morning and genuinely seemed to want us to have a great...

Stayed here unexpectedly as the last flight of the day was cancelled due to weather. It's brand new (well maybe a year old) and so the rooms and public areas are very nicely designed and spotless. Got upgraded to an executive room as an Accor Gold and it was huge. Very impressed. Good amenities and really nice shower and bathroom....

For a last minute booking, the Novotel here was the best I've been to. The staff were very helpful and welcoming with helpful friendly advise about the town. The simple things impressed me most. Quick service at the bar. Easy to operate light controls in the room. USB charging directly from power socket. Automatic Mirror demisting on the bathroom mirror...

Booked the 2-bed room suite with breakfast for 3 during Accor member sale promotion. Great value for money. Fantastic room - spacious, clean and modern. Kitchen facilities are of high quality. Staff very friendly. Would definitely return.

Simply put, the hotel is still new and the operations team running the hotel are solid. The entire reception and restaurant staff were friendly, genuine and service oriented. When we arrived early and asked to change up our reservation, the desk clerk was easily able to handle our request, with a smile. The room was clean, linens fresh and the...
