We booked to celebrate our daughters 18th Birthday. No one was there to meet us when we arrived and we waited a few minutes. Then taken to our table by a lovely lady, unfortunately service went downhill from there. Our waiter was indifferent at best and bordered on rude. The food was lovely but unfortunately service was very poor.
Dessert selection wasnt good. Mainly are slices. Someone dropped the ice cream to the fruit salad but no staff clean it. Just leave it like that. No staff changed the water for the ice cream scope jar, water was getting muddy , looks aweful.
Thank you, and complements to the chef. Grill was bang on, all service staff and kai was fantastic. Already recommend to others.
very poor selection of food and quality
Our New Favourite place
The meal was lovely but the queue for the hot food was disorganised and didnt seem to flow very well. The decor wasn't that attractive either, but overall the service and food was great
Really friendly and welcoming staff! Highly recommended.
Overall experience was good. Need more options for children as there was only chips & chicken tenders which ran out early and wasn't topped up. By 8.30 pm the dessert bar was nearly all gone and didn't get topped up either. There was also a long wait for the muscle fritters, venison steak & pork loins to be fried while you wait. I must say that the staff and their service was excellent.
After checking our 7pm reservation was all in order earlier that evening for our guests, they arrived at 7.05pm ready to be seated for dinner. Sadly - had to wait a little longer than expected considering it was not a busy night. Finally another staff member attended to our reservation who kindly welcomed our group and proceeded to point out each dinner option available as he showed us to our table. That almost made up for the wait only to be disappointed again. No drinks waiter, or water offered for our table upon taking our seats, until we were half way thru our meals we had to flag down a staff member for some water and a wine list so drinks could be ordered. Food options were prettiful and nicely prepared. Family meal deal of $89 for two adults and two children is a good value with the quality selection of food available. However the atmosphere was lacking as apart from the Xmas decorations and empty wine glasses one could have been mistaken for eating in a food court. For a tourist destination in a highly regarded hotel and during this festive season, on this occasion there wasn't much to celebrate. Mind you that's just my opinion!
had a great experience with dinner buffet. Seafood was great for a reasonable price. Need more variety for breakfast though, fried rice was so hard and the porridge was bland.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. All staff were professional and very helpful. They went out of their way to assist us and our tables were always cleared. We appreciate the staff who took their time to be helpful, and making our evening enjoyable, we can’t name just one staff member. All staff we dealt with are a credit to the Novotel, and we will come back and recommend the atlas to other family and friends. Great atmosphere, we were really impressed. Thanks very much everyone. 👍☺️
Amazing buffet especially the seafood. Desserts were great. The chef who cooked on demand was a bonus and he cooked uncomplainingly and nothing too much trouble. The maitre'd was welcoming, relaxed and approachable and was doing an amazing job. I was there to celebrate my 60th and it was made special with the added bonus of a birthday song, cake and candle. The only negative would be paying for drinks at the end was very slow. A suggestion would be that people pay for their buffet on arrival. All in all a really great event and would look forward to returning.
Staff at the restaurant were awesome even at the end of the night as we were dining late. Top stars.
The service from the beginning till the end was very welcoming. Put whanau well and truly enjoyed the buffet all so fresh and tasty. Thank you for your service and the AMAZING Kai...
Food was nice, vegetarian option a bit small though - 5 ravioli just wasn't really enough! Other meals went down well however... had to ask for dessert and coffees. Bit pricey, will go back for buffet, but not a la carte again.
Have had buffet dinner,lunch and breakfast here.Great hotel friendly staff.Awesome food.Definitely stay again.Hot pools a bonus.Comfortable cosy rooms.
Fantastic night, staff so helpful with organising how I wanted to be seated for the night, even helped tie organza bows on the chairs when I was running out of time. Fabulous food and atmosphere, I love the space between tables so you have enough privacy in your own little group. The overnight stay was comfortable, beds lovely and soft I can't wait to find an excuse to go back.......
