Good location with good views, close to the trams and bus station Staff were nice and helpful Bed was a bit soft but the facilities were good

Not impressed, over priced for what you get.

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Neil S. Couples - 06/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

Disappointed, originally booked for 2 nights but our holiday was cut short and we got an earlier flight home and then re-booked for 1 night but my original booking would not be refunded, not even 1 night. Everywhere else we had booked to stay were happy to give me a refund but not Novotel. Every time we travel we try to stay at Novotel and have been a member for quite sometime but will never stay in another Novtel in future when we travel. You can cancel my membership because I will not use it again.

Efficient, friendly and no hassles

John Couples - 05/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

We enjoyed our stay. From check in, right through to our departure all the staff were friendly and helpful. A small glitch with the TV was sorted quickly. Breakfasts were excellent. The bar staff were excellent and we really appreciated our drinks voucher. Thanks again for a great stay.

The stay at the hotel was what we would expect at a Novotel, but unfortunately the Restaurant was disappointing. It was a quite night only five or six tables but they some how forgot our order. When it did come my husband did feel it was probably the worst pork belly he had ever had. The wait staff were nice and apologised and we did dine for free.

Fine. But only fine.

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Gm Business - 05/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

It was fine. The Bed was fine, the location was fine, the room was fine. Not providing Wifi in a $190/n hotel is unforgivable. It's 2019. Seriously, everywhere has free wifi. Except expensive hotels. What's up with that?

Great only 1

Anonymous Families - 04/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

Staff were extremely helpful - I really appreciated being able to check in early and check out late. That made a huge difference to us when the weather was so hot and our 5 year old was struggling to cope. The hotel room was really nice and well set up, and we really enjoyed our stay.

Service exceeded expectation

Kevin F. Business - 03/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

Great staff very helpful Disappointed with the bathroom setup, the shower hose has been recycled and is too short. There is no mirror in the bathroom so have to disturb the sleeper to shave. The room is cluttered with furniture too big for the space. The USB charger does not work. The whole place needs a little love and attention

Good, rooms need a refurbish
