For the price one expects high levels of service and facilities, the Novotel achieves this and beyond. Great reception, well organised and although busy very professional. Good restaurant, very good breakfast. Excellent room.

We had a function on in Hamilton over Easter so stayed here one night, we have stayed a number of times before but not since becoming a Platinum Accor member and we appreciated the fact that they recognised our loyalty with providing us with the little extras such as chocolate and a nice hand written note from the manager along...

Really good staff, a nice place to stay in Central Hamilton. The lady at reception was very friendly and helpful both when we arrived and checked out. She told us where everything was located from the restaurant, bar and gym. It was a very pleasant experience. I would definitely stay here again.

Had a really good one night stay for work here. The rooms were huge, well appointed and had all the things I needed - great heating/cooling and blackout curtains. Bed was comfortable and plenty of pillow options via the pillow menu. Staff were great - much better than other places I've been to recently. Everyone was happy, professional and really...

Great hotel and location and the staff are always great. I always stay at the Novotel Hamilton as long as they have available rooms which is often a few times each month, My only complain is they need better pillows as they are always flat.

Hamilton is a small town, expect lesser branded hotels. Therefore Novotel is probably the best choice here. Location is good, in middle of the main market area. Breakfast spread is limited, unfortunately no Indian dish, may be not many Indians frequent this hotel. An Indian restaurant band opposite the hotel is a good plus point. The only issue I faced...
