Novotel Auckland Airport

The Gilpin Travel Corporate team had a hotel inspection at the recently opened Novotel Auckland Airport Hotel. This hotel is just opposite the international terminal and perfect for those needing an overnight stay or in need of accommodation after a late flight. The rooms are decorated with a New Zealand theme in mind and completely sound proof with the higher floors looking out over the runway – great for all those plane enthusiasts. The hotel has a 24 hour restaurant and bar along with 24 hour room service, a fully equipped gym plus a theatre style conference centre and 10 meeting rooms. Complimentary wireless in the lobby and for those single travellers the restaurant has tables set up with mini TV’s so they can catch up on the news or their favourite programme. The lobby’s main talking point is the ‘living wall’ a floor to ceiling wall covered in native plants.
