Noisy Unpleasant Stay

As soon as we arrived the hotel, we were shocked to see only a small desk on the ground floor without knowing where to check in. Apparently, the LCD screen was turned off as it was still early at 7 am. The hotel desk clerk was kind enough to allow us to check in early. However, the excitement was short-lived as soon as we entered the room. The room and toilet were dark and the king size bed was old enough to cause backache. We were awaken by the strong vibration and noise created by the deconstruction works. We were further let down by the note stating that there was construction going on from 7am-7pm weekdays and 7am-3pm on Saturday. The construction was just adjacent to our room and we could hardly get any sleep at all. Apparently, the construction would take place till the end of 2015. Overall, it was not a pleasant stay because if we had known these earlier, we would not have booked to stay in Novotel for that long weekend. It is not worth the amount paid for the experience we went through.

Dont book in a construction site /

Initially offered a room facing into an internal airshaft at the base of which was a major construction project using the worlds largest jackhammers. On request, I was given a much less claustrophobic room which faced the outside but the construction noise throughout the hotel was at best annoying,and at worst incredibly intrusive, with the whole building vibrating . Maybe this is just bad timing but it certainly detracts from what was intended to be a relaxing stay in a luxury hotel .

A decent Trip

The staff were friendly and the location was in the centre of Melbourne, cant expect a better location. The room was clean and the services were excellent however the rooms were not large enough and hard to walk to the other end of the building from the lifts, a good 3 minutes walk. Can do with another lift or provision for Porter to take luggage as can be inconvenient.

Great Location

This hotel provides easy access to the city shops and transport. The room and bathroom are a great size. My only 2 criticisms, and it could be because the hotel was very busy, but the 2nd bed was a pull out bed (I travelled with a friend) - both queen size but it would be good to have 2 'permanent' beds. Also, the noise from other showers was rather surprising. The breakfast options were good - either the buffet or a smaller café option was offered. Staff were welcoming and friendly and our luggage was securely stored after we checked out.

Great service

The motel was lovely, the valet service was great as we didn't have to worry about parking and for $35 it was piece of mind as the car was secure. The location was great as it was pretty central to everything. The room was very comfortable and clean and the staff were just lovely. I would definitely stay again a bit pricey but we did stay in December so I am sure the rates were dearer. Would definitely recommend to others.
