« Combining Buisness and Sightseeing »

Stayed recently for business and took the opprtunity for an additional night in Canberra. First impression at reception ground level is not that good. It's small and very cluttered. Fortunately the bar/restaurant areas on the fist floor were excellent. Service at the desk and in the restaurant was excellent and the rooms were clean and serviceable if a bit dated. Happy to stay there again

« Want to be in the Centre of Canberra - then this is the place for you »

The Novotel is well positioned right in the heart of Canberra on Northbourne Ave. Close to Civic and the shopping centre it is also near the bus hub which can take you to some of the attractions. Of course within a short walk you are next to Lake Burley Griffin. As for the hotel itself - the room are large, the service is great and the restaurant food was good quality and well presented. The only downside if you are travelling by car is the narrowness of the carparks in the basement. Otherwise would definitely recommend this hotel.

« A lot to work on... »

The hotel itself was beautiful and although the rooms were a little dated as far as the bathrooms and layout furnishings went, it was great value for money. The issues i had was valet was not proactive in helping with requests. When i checked in they said they would bring my bags up. I waited almost an hour and then tried calling reception and there was no answer. I figured they may have been busy so i went down myself. as the doors opened up, my bags were right in front of the elevator on the trolley. I saw 2 staff at the counter chatting away. I pulled the trolley into my lift and no one stopped me let alone paid enough attention to what was happening 10m from them. Luckily i was taking my own bags. Its a bit worrying that someone else could help themselves to my bags if they wanted to. a couple of other times through our stay we tried calling concierge and reception for infomation about Canberra and everytime we did there was no answer.

« Novotel Canberra »

Breakfast on the Sunday was very embarrassing and we ended up leaving and going to a cafe down the road as there was little food and extremely slow and lacked organisation. I am sure you would have got a number of other complaints that day. Through the week was slightly better and the lady supervisor on duty was helpful.
