Almost two years after its original opening date, the Novotel hotel at Christchurch Airport looks set to open its doors in November.


The airport has invested $80 million in the 200-bed hotel, being built on airport land next to the international terminal.


Construction began in 2016 and was originally scheduled to finish in December 2017 but has encountered a string of major delays.


The Sudima hotel chain originally took on the lease of the property but global hotel chain Accor will now run it under the Novotel brand and has begun taking bookings from 1 November.


Despite the advertised opening date, an airport spokesperson said while the hotel would open this summer, they had not received a confirmed completion date.
