Novotel Auckland Airport, New Zealand

Super convenient location!

This was the more expensive airport hotel (out of two) possibly due to its location right outside the International Terminal. I had an early morning flight so it was worth paying the extra money for the convenience of being next to the terminal.

Fantastic location, walk out of the International Terminal and there it is infront of you. 

It's rated as a 4 star hotel so has the amenities that reflect that rating. The room was spacious, it had a mini bar, there were bathrobes, tea and coffee making facilities. There is a restaurant and bar and a business computer that can be used to print off travel documents. There's also a fitness centre for those who want to exercise before or after a flight!

The minibar with a glass door, making it harder to resist the lure of what was inside! The bathroom is behind the frosted glass, so it does get some natural light.

There was a large walk in shower.

Optional Extras

The hotel boasts sound proof windows and I can attest that it's very quiet considering planes are taking off and landing nearby.

Although the hotel was expensive, it was worth being so close to the International Terminal, perfect if you're coming in from a late night flight or like me leaving on an early one.
