It was nice enough, nice friendly service, but what let it down for us was that we rang for room service in the morning before we set out for the day, then came back and the room service was not done. We rang again for room and they said theyre busy which is not an acceptable excuse, so we went out for a couple hours then came back and they'd just finished.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Novatel Queenstown Lakeside. The location is epic and the breakfast is fantastic. The staff were always friendly and accommodating and we would definitely recommend staying here to friends and family. The twin bedrooms are great with comfy beds and Level two lockdown was handled very professionally by all. Overall we agree as a family that this is the best value, centrally located hotel in Queenstown.
