Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

While staying at the Novotel Queenstown NZ we had breakfast everyday at Elements, the breakfast is a full buffet with heaps to choose from, staff are great, friendly and helpful. Of an evening we dined at Element, such a great experience the food was awesome...and very filling, Tristan the Maître de is an absolute gentlemen and can’t do enough for you with his service, extremely friendly, helpful and professional, he goes out of his way to spark a conversation with guests the same goes for our Waiter Christian. Both these guys were awesome at their job and happy no matter what. Just makes the whole experience of dining memorable. The Novotel needs to recognise staff like these two boys.More

Perhaps unfairly I was not expecting much here. Booked through Accor plus membership to take advantage of dining rewards. Well, I can now say the service was impeccable and our meals were up there with the best we have tasted. My wife's steak was perfect...along with my lamb. The restaurant is fairly basic and lacks atmosphere, however the fantastic service and excellent food more than make up for this and I highly recommend dining here.More

Booked one week prior for husbands birthday dinner, turned up to be informed that restaurant was closed. Given the option of lamb ragu on toast or chicken panini off the snack menu in the bar area. Restaurant manager kindly offered 1 round of drinks as...compensation for our disruption. Unfortunately due to being school holidays finding another restaurant at 6.30pm at night was impossible. Last evening of our holiday has been bitterly disappointing due to Novotel and the restaurant Elements.More

Very nice Dinner. Good Venison main course. Restaurant taking only small amount of bookings and closed Sunday and Monday nights due to lack of staff. Good value if you have Accor card and get 50% of food price.

Waitress small, glasses and very friendly think her name was pootook? Was the best part! Hardly any vegetarian options, side dishes were tiny! Friends said the steaks were good but the sauces (peppercorn, mushroom and jus) were very watery. Homemade sour cream with the breads...tasted sour and off and left a bad taste in our mouths for the whole meal. Had previously dined before covid and it was a really good option for locals but I wouldn’t come back now.More

Visited Elements last week for an early (6.000pm) meal to find the place almost fully empty Was shown to our table by a nice young lady who provided menus, explained the specials and took drinks order etc. Entrée’s and mains arrived as ordered and everything...was of a very high standard and we enjoyed all of what we had ordered Plenty of other guests had now arrived and all seemed to be having a similar experience to us. The staff are all young but very keen and very good at their jobs and are led very well by Managers. Enjoy if you have the chanceMore
