Christchurch salutes the opening of the $80 million Novotel Christchurch Airport and welcomes its guests to the city. More than 3.5 tonnes of food and over 2000 bottles of South Island wine are part of the preparations for the opening of the 4.5-star, six-storey hotel on Monday November 25, 2019. The hotel boasts 200 premium rooms that were all designed with luxury in mind, and the staff offer warm welcoming hospitality and fabulous service.
Novotel Christchurch Airport general manager Olivier Lacoua says it’s looking fantastic. “This is not your average airport hotel, and as soon as the doors open, anyone who walks inside will realise it has been worth the wait. It is impressive with luxury fittings, including marble, copper tiling and extensive American Oak panelling”. Conveniently located close to the airport, the hotel overlooks the stunning Sotuthern Alps and is the perfect spot for both leisure and business visitors, allowing a nice transition from their flights to their accommodation.
“The sixth floor is definitely a highlight. Its bar, restaurant and conference facilities boast floor-to-ceiling windows with expansive, panoramic views across the runway and the Southern Alps. There is no place like it in Canterbury,” he says.
