Great staff and decore, however the design of the room was unusual - possibly attempting to make the bathroom vanity a multi-purpose vanity/kitchenette/bar. Bringing toiletries out of the bathroom to brush teeth, do hair, etc was in full view of the bed.......a big design failure. The mattress on the bed was very soft and not supportive at all. But, everything else was great regarding the hotel and close to Cafes and shopping.

All was good, except I suspect they are understaffed. The breakfast staff could not keep up with demand (for plates, cutlery etc). Not enough reception/check in staff as there was always a line up any time of day. Cleaning of room occurred very late in the day, not enough cleaning staff? Otherwise, food was good, location perfect, room was good.

So close to public transport and food outlets of many nationalities. Wonderful view above the trees while eating a very tasty breakfast. Lovely views from the balcony -sunrise and sunset. Close to all tourist venues. Helpful and friendly staff.

Had a great time, needed more staff on during the busy breakfast times, sometimes waiting in line for 10 mins, which I think is unacceptable for Novotel... Also food needed to keep checked on more regularly, was without some eggs and bacon for 10 mins so if you were in a hurry, you chose something else. Nothing was a problem for the staff though, just needed a few more in the dining area at busy breakfast periods, just ask and it was there pretty quick.

They have a valet service with approximately 3-4 dedicated staff which don't actually park your car - just look after your keys for you and ask you numerous questions as to when you think you might want to leave the next morning. How about using these staff members to assist with baggage to your room??? Very strange. Breakfast was understaffed, apparantly just one chef on that morning - some very angry people around the room, although by 1045 there was plenty of food available and we even got presented with cups so we could make our own coffee..yippee. Yes very average.

Hotel was centrally located. Rooms comfortable and clean. Great breakfast. Lifts are a bit narrow and so are the car parking spaces underground. Staff were friendly and polite.

Apart from the fact that the reception staff could not find a booking in my name, the staff were very pleasant and efficient. The hotel generally was fairly plain and utilitarian but clean and comfortable. Buffet breakfast was very good.

Good clean hotel well located close to Canberra shopping centre. Mini bar wasnt restocked for 3 days dispite being asked. Excellent breakfast but staff struggle to cope and queues are common after 0700hrs. I will stay here again but I wont use the restaurant for dinner, service was atrocious considering there were only 3 tables occupied. Recommend eating out at night, there are lots of restaurants within walking distance.

One point of contention. Their web site indicated that the tariff included breakfast at a value of $20. The breakfast was not included in the daily tariff and the breakfasts were charged at $23 per person.

It was really convenient that the hotel is open 24 hours and we could check in at anytime since we have small children coming from a two hours drive from the snowy mountain late at night. Check in was fast and we got into our room pretty quick. The room was clean and comfortable and we got three rooms next to each other. The only thing was they parking fees that we had to pay and trying to take our luggage down it was a little slow. But overall I was happy and would stay there again.

Nice and clean and quiet. We didn't have breakfast there seeing as it was $30 a head, we went to McDonalds nearby instead. I would stay there again.
