« OK.....but »

Rooms and breakfast were really good. Location is obviously very good. Minor annoyances though. We booked 2 rooms, but were put on different floors, so no planning there. Could not even access each others floors. Elevators were confusing to use....we rode up and down a few times with other frustrated guests trying to get to their floors. The so-called valet parking at $25 per day is complicated and inconvenient and expensive, despite the guys doing it being very good to deal with. Overall, good hotel, but a chaotic first hour just checking in and getting to our rooms.

« Had a lovely few days ,staff were all friendly and helpful,room clean and comfortable. »

We stayed 4 nights and ate in the restaurant or bar most evenings . Staff were attentive and food was fine . Hotel is conveniently located to centre of Canberra , easy to get around to tourist spots .Everything was good reason to say more . Car park has very tight spaces but we managed !

« Excellent location »

Reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Sadly the hospitality staff at breakfast weren’t the same. The room was adequate - we were offered an upgrade but found the upgraded room dark and poky so opted for the room we had booked which had a balcony. As an overnight stay the room was adequate. The bathroom was small and the decor tired but the price reasonable.

« Good standard of Accommodation no free wifi is an issue »

Liked the room and the breakfast didn't like no free wifi as a business traveller this is inconvenient.

« Staff were a standout during my visit »

Very impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Found the room to be outdated and didn't smell very fresh.

« Old »

It was not a wow experience, the hotel is already antique, thus the design and everything, not really what I expected compared to Novotel Singapore, where a mobile phone is provided, although I’m not expecting it to be that level, but it was ok to sleep for an overnight stay. No free parking.

« Not enough appropriate space for 2 adults »

The room was certainly not able to comfortably accommodate 2 women. Not enough space to safely walk around bed to window. Not enough space for toiletries bag for 2 women. And the height to step into bath for a shower is extremely high. Finally the food(Mushroom lasagana)was non edible and this seemed to be a common thread in the restaurant.

« Below expectation »

Upon arrival in the car park, I found I had to drive on the right hand side of the road. I questioned a parking valet who told me that many things were odd about Accor hotels. When I checked in at reception, there was no record on the computer of my booking despite having recceived a booking reference by email. The member of staff did sort it out promptly. The bedroom was fine but the semicircular protrusion of the desk between the two double beds meant it was not possible to actually sit in the Eames chair wedged between all 3 and use the desk. The bathroom was tired and in places grubby. Tiles were chipped and broken, grouting stained in areas. The main low voltage downlight was filthy with dust. I was unable to find a price list for the mini bar and it contained only a small range. The beds were reasonably comfortable. The TV was fine but could not easily be viewed from the other bed. The blackout curtains were good. When we arrived in the restaurant for breakfast, the staff member who greeted us told us that the restaurant kitchen would close in 25 minutes. She was then unable to find our booking (on a paper list) and indicated we would have to pay for breakfast. I explained that we had booked in advance and that breakfast was included in our room rate. I offered to show the email and booking reference but was told that she would call reception. The staff member took us to a table and seated us. After 5 minutes, aware that the kitchen would be closing in 20 minutes, I got up from my table and located the staff member who informed me that shehad heard from reception and that we could eat breakfast. Whilst none of this was a great inconvenience, the level of organisation was poor. My daughter had what appeared to be cut fruit which had a flavour taint more like 'Goulburn Valley' packaged/preserved fruit. She did not eat it. She then tried a mini pastry which was acceptable, then tried the mini doughnut, which was not. I opted for the cooked items. The bacon was all stuck together in the chafing dish, tomatoes were ok, sausages tepid-cold and the scrambled egg swimming in water. The black coffee, which was made at the espresso machine arrived without a crema on top, indicative of a well made coffee and easy to do with some training. Overall the breakfast was poor. Your own website claims to be a 4.5 star hotel but in our experience fell well short of that. I would expect a clean bathroom in good condition, competent organisation and pleasing breakfast. None of these were achieved.

« Great location, friendly staff, indoor pool was a hit with kids! »

We stayed for a weekend getaway to visit family living in Canberra. Our room was spacious, clean and had all we needed for our stay. The hotel bar, pool, spa, restaurant were all great and utilised during our stay. Staff were informative, friendly and helpful.

« Pleasant stay with a delicious pastry-filled breakfast buffet! »

Hotel reception was very friendly. There was a dinner plate leftover from someone else's room service which worried us that meant the room wasn't ready for us potentially. It stayed there for a few hours. It was unsightly. The breakfast was delicious, with very tasty pastry desserts available! Tasty coffee! Happy hour $6 wines were very much appreciated! Overall very clean and friendly place.

« Tired »

Staff were courteous and professional But were let down by tired decor and fittings. This location no longer befits the Novotel brand and should be shut down for refurbishments. Sadly I could not recommend to other business travellers.
