« The hotel is a little older and getting shabby but was generally pleasant and clean. »

Disliked the breakfast system - the food was great but had to wait for a long time, no signage and then the staff were quite unhelpful on the first day. Then the next day it was a guy from PNG and he was extremely helpful and nice.

« Old Tired Room »

Staff are great and professional - the room how ever was tired and old looking and not at all nice to stay in.

« A pleasant stay in a good quality hotel in a central location. »

Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was basic, not too small, but quite clean. The ambience in the bar/restaurant was very good. Breakfast was quite reasonable.

Nice clean room with friendly services

Harriett L. Business - 09/12/2018 AccorHotels certified review

I asked for the shower to be fixed 3 times, the water pressure was not good emough to wash my hair, mty requests were ignored, not good enough. The shower head was broken which they did fix, it was down too low on the arm. Reception was aware of my complaint but did nothing to rectify.

« Great location »

The hotel was nice and in a great location A shame the pool wasn’t warm enough to enjoy, it just needs to be heated a little more - which was definitely the general consensus of everyone who went in the water while we were there. And the parking was terrible - for $25 per night, they expect you to leave your keys either with parking attendant/valet or at the front desk - which meant every time you come and go, you have to wait to get your keys and find your car - they certainly didn’t have this process refined. I’d accept some inconvenience if it was free - but to pay $25 for such a poor service was frustrating - and will actually prevent me from staying again - there is lots of nice accommodation in the area!

« Great overnight stay »

from check in to check out everyone and everything was so lovely. the staff were so friendly, even putting us in an apartment room for some more space. rooms were tidy and the bed was super comfortable. almost a perfect stay aside from housekeeping coming in to the room despite the 'privacy' tag being on our door. but still lovely stay nonetheless!

« Slowest internet ever, and bathroom not cleaned »

First time staying at Novotel Canberra. Stayed overnight for business and I was disappointed. Internet was so slow it was pretty much useless. Bathroom was not completely clean and had hair on the floor. I mentioned to the front desk when I checked out and they didn’t even apologised but brushed it off and proceeded with taking payment from my credit card. Very poor form.

« Friendly, efficient staff, Great location. »

A good quality hotel close to the main city bus bays and close to many of Canberra's attractions. My only negative was parking confusion when I arrived. Maybe the website should include clear instructions for those who want to park at the hotel.

Trevor Solo - 06/12/2018 AccorHotels certified review
« Friendly helpful staff, great position. »

A good hotel room. Plenty of space. Good shower. Room in the small fridge for some personal things, not full of mini bar stuff like some hotels. Breakfast average. All staff were extremely helpful. Daily paper left at door first thing each morning was a great touch. Mani problem was parking. I had no idea what to do when I arrived. Parking instructions should be made clear on web site.

« central location for a conference »

pretty good. The building itself is a bit tired and needs a little tlc. The safe is too small to put my laptop in flat so ended up jamming it and there is not really adequate storage space (what is that little void between the wardrobe and tea making area?).

Angela T. Families - 05/12/2018 AccorHotels certified review
« Clean and comfy »

We had a great short stay. The receptionist was happy, welcoming and bubbly on arrival. The beds were very very comfortable and the shower was awesome. Breakfast delicious too. You’ll definitely be our first choice next time we pass through Canberra. The only thing I didn’t like was the expectation to leave our car keys at reception (which we didn’t do, because our hire car insurance would have been void if someone other than us listed on the policy drove the car).
