Hester Families - 13/09/2019 AccorHotels review
« Excellent customer service but the place is rather dated »

I want to commend on the friendliness and great attention to details of your cafe staff. Despite the breakfast buffet was not very inspiring, the team there definitely made it up and put a smile on our face. As for the room, I do feel that it needs some serious renovation is well overdue.

Xavier Business - 13/09/2019 AccorHotels review
« Appreciate the refurbishment of the bathroom. »

As usual, nice staff, nice hotel, I will undoubtedly be back . Only the waiting time at the restaurant was unusually long , for diner but also to get a coffee for breakfast Nothing serious.

John M. Couples - 13/09/2019 AccorHotels review
« Ok »

Disappointed that after a meal in the restaurant there was nobody front of house. Waited 5-7 minutes before walking out which lead to a disagreement at checkout as we hadn’t presented our Accor card. Check out lady got grumpy but finally agreed and amended bill- twice. It turned out after we left we had still been overcharged as didn’t get discounted breakfast!! All in all wait staff ok, front of house not, checkout reluctant to apologise for shortcoming NOT GREAT

Glennis D. Friends - 10/09/2019 AccorHotels review
« Overnight for post-surgery checkup with girlfriend who also had major Surgery at Anglesea Hospital. »

Always enjoy our stays with Novotel Tainui have been staying since 1999. I was very disappointed that the early check in I booked was not although we arrived at 11:15am? It is advertised as being available from 8.00am. The reason I booked early check-in was because my friend and I were still sore from surgery we had undergone a few weeks earlier. Shona at reception didnt seem to have an answer as to why it wasnt ready even though early check in should be from 8.00am. We were sore from car trip up from Taupo, but this did not seem to phase Shona...she seemed grumpy and this is not the first time she has served us with that kind of attitude. I have worked in hotel management and if she was one of my staff I would send her for more training or give her a job at the back, not in frontline reservations.

My stay was very good and past without any problems.

Angelique V. Friends - 09/09/2019 AccorHotels review
« As an Accor member I was very disappointed with my stay »

We were told that we will have rooms on the higher floors, as we requested, when we booked the rooms. When we arrived we were given rooms on the second floor but upgraded to the third floor. The bed in room 302 were incredibly uncomfortable - it is old and lumpy and after 4 hours of trying to sleep on this mattress, I got up to have a warm bath to try and soak my back ache away. Then the bathtub would not fill up with water as the bath plug was faulty and wouldn't retain the bath water. On arrival we went to the bar to order our welcoming drinks and the young lady behind the bar had the worst attitude. My friend, who has her own catering business and well known, told her off for being rude. We walked away feeling really upset with her unwillingness to help us and her total lack of wanting to help us. The breakfast buffet was good and that was about all that was satisfactory about our stay. I am honestly re-considering renewing my Accor membership next year.

Ruth L. Business - 09/09/2019 AccorHotels review
« A little under expectations »

For 2 times the housekeeping service failed, disrespecting the hanging warning do not disturb sign. the valet service quite a few times was not ready although was booked at that specific time. I felt under suspicion for one of the chauffer asking to pay half of accommodation before it finishes like if I could not afford to pay the hotel... So I split the payment as requested by one of the managers... felt discriminate...
