My wife and I stayed for four nights between Christmas and New Year last year (2016), we selected this hotel because it was new, and part of the Accor Hotels group, which I am a loyalty member of.
The welcome we received at arrival was warm, friendly and genuine. Our room was on the second (top) floor and was fairly spartan by Novotel standards, but quiet, comfortable and functional; I was impressed and the number of power sockets in the room--sufficient even for me. The TV had the usual free to air channels plus Sky sports, news and two Sky movie channels. The bathroom was a wet floor shower with the usual amenities provided. Our impression of the room was "nice" rather than "wow", but we enjoyed it nevertheless.
Breakfast in the morning was the typical buffet-style (there did not appear to be other choices). I would have to describe the breakfast selection as adequate, somewhat below what I typically experience at a Novotel. Nevertheless we enjoyed our breakfast each morning and the staff were very efficient and friendly. I am used to having a barista available (which there was) but there was a charge for barista-made coffee--deferring to the machine at the end of the buffet. The chef made me an omelette each morning, which were excellent (compliments to the chef) and we left each morning with full tummies, so all was good!
Typically I stay in New Plymouth for business, usually 5 nights at a time. This hotel is my new business accommodation in New Plymouth! I'll be back!
