Novotel Hobson 

Novotel Hobson opened for business in December 2015. It is located on the corner of Hobson and Leach Streets.

Planning permission was granted in March 2013 and construction commenced in March 2014. The estimated cost of the 100-bedroom hotel was $22 million and it was designed by the firm Boon Goldsmith Bhaskar Brebner. The Hamilton based firm, Foster Construction, was awarded the contract to build the hotel.

A rare Ombu tree, thought to have been planted in the 1860s (see linked topic), had to be preserved and was incorporated into the design. A Brethren Church on the site was moved off before construction began.
