Great location, comfortable room

Went to Canberra for Brumbies rugby game. Delighted to find that there is a (free) bus to GIO Stadium, which departs in the block next to Novotel. The hotel reception staff didn't know about this, our friends found out speaking to someone in the hotel car park. Reception staff had directed us to the bus interchange, where we couldn't find any information about special event buses, earlier in the day... info signage came out in evening. Our friends were also told when booking in that breakfast was included in their pre-payment. Glad they were told that, because no-one told me when I checked in (and I had forgotten), so I nearly missed out on my breakfast. Trainee receptionist, not quite up to speed, perhaps? Overall hotel fine, but room & bathroom a bit small.

Looking tired

Can't fault the location, the size of the rooms and the pillows. But the room looked really worn. The bath tub had chips that were patched over. Paint was peeling from the window ledge. The location of the power sockets also did not make sense. There were 4 around the sink area but non available near the bedside. Doesn't match the Novotels I've stayed in, especially those in Bangkok.

Great Hotel in central - best Breakfast bar around

This hotel is in the city centre, walking distance to many restaurants, cafes. The rooms are nice, clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff are nice, friendly, and helpful. The breakfast bar is awesome! Parking onsite is expensive, and sometimes street parking can be limiting. Highly recommend this hotel.

Central location, friendly helpful staff, comfy bed and clean room.

From the moment we arrived at the hotel until the time we left we loved every minute! Central location, comfy bed, clean room, friendly staff and a nice variety buffet breakfast. On arrival we had a quick check in and were given complimentary late check out. Friendly staff, both Miriam and Jillian were absolutely great to deal with. We were given tips and advice about traveling around Canberra and local attractions. Will stay here again when visiting Canberra and recommend it to others.

Nothing Special

Stayed for one night. Guy at reception was pretty disinterested in me and couldn't be bothered to find me a newspaper when I asked just told me to go the bar on the first floor and see if there are any left. I ordered a paper for the next day. Was not delivered in the morning so I rang to enquire. Jasmine was great and said she would arrange one to be sent up. Did'nt arrive, so down to the bar again to collect my own paper. When I mentioned it to her at checkout, she was quite upset that the paper was not sent up when requested. She was good. Otherwise....Ordinary.

Great place to stay in Canberra

Right in the heart of Canberra, this hotel is well placed for a tourist or business stay. Good service and amenities, but nothing out of the ordinary.
