Couples - 10/10/2019 TripAdvisor review

My partner and i arrived late on a friday night after attending floriade night exhibition. We came in there was no parking for the car. When i got to check-in after some 20 minutes in the car park, i almost got told it was my fault that i could not find a parking spot because i was so late and the last one to check-in on that day. Correct me if I am wrong but one who books a hotel room should actually have the privilege to arrive when he/she wants!! Then came the room, it was poorly air conditioned. stuffy and missed items like spoons for coffee, milk and other things!! The bathroom had a shower leaking. When it turned to breakfast, staff could not speak English properly, it was a struggle to be understood!! Breakfast was of poor quality overall!! I am due to return to Canberra in December I am not sure i will be staying at the Novotel again!!

« Time for a Renovation »

Check in smooth, staff helpful and room large but needing a bit of renovation. Centrally located.

« Comfortable bed in convenient location »

Check in was a little drawn out, because there were inexperience staff on a busy night. Was asked if I want to pay for room on check in and I agree but I seems as if that didn't happen. Room was very nice in appearance and bathroom was lovely. The bed was very comfortable, but the room was next the Electrical Plant room and the windows at back over looked the Coach depot, so room was very noisy. We were woken up around 4am by loud coach motor running and the starting of a "mystery" noise, possibly the AC. Once we were awake it was hard to get back to sleep with these competing noises, then we started to hear a "tapping" sound, and was unsure what that was. Later when we when to breakfast, we had the buffet. It was very busy (rugby semi final crowd) but I was very disspointed that the food had not been marked if it was Gluten Free. When I made the booking I told the staff member I was a Coeliac and had toeat gluten free. I was assured that the buffet had many options and the food would be labelled. Only the bacon would be a problem and that I could ask for some fresh bacon. Nothing had "gluten free" written on it. I could not fine the Gluten Free Bread and the staff were so over run I could not ask for new bacon. I did eat a little bit of egg, hoping that I would be fine and not have issues, but I would have loved to eat a lit more for breakfast. I would strongly sugguest that the breakfast buffet be run in allocated timeslots to allow of guarenteed seating and food lableling. The parking was a little shambled to. Nad the entrance of the parking lot - driving the opposite way that you would on a road is very hard to navigate.

« Very comfortable hotel for our stay in Canberra - lovely dinner in the restaurant. »

We had a lovely stay - the staff were friendly and helpful and our room was terrific. It is always great to have a couple of chairs or a lounge to sit on in our room as I can't sit on a bed comfortably. Within walking distance of great cafes and good shopping in the city, the hotel is well situated. Unfortunately we were rather surprised at the heavy traffic and the difficulty getting into the hotel, having to go around the block. On checkout, we were disappointed that we had to wait 20 minutes for our car to be brought to us as it had been taken off site the night before. With lots of football fans leaving at the same time as us it was a bit of a nightmare. Due to this difficulty, we would probably prefer to stay somewhere in the suburbs where parking is not an issue.

« Staff were polite »

Room was clean and mostly well appointed some of the fittings arround doors and in bathroom needed refurbishing

« Ordinary »

I've stayed here many times and this time the restaurant experience was well below standard which did surprise me. Long wait times, mistakes with my order and ordinary food. there are plenty of other dinner options close to the hotel and i'll probably take them up the next time i stay in Canberra

« It was ok »

There were a couple of staff that were trying to provide goo service but the majority were not friendly, helpful or pleasant. The pool was great. The location is great. The housekeeping staff were by far your best assets

« Very disappointed »

From the moment I arrived to the moment I left it was a very Poor from the Management right down to the staff . The reception & service was appalling. Never again will I stay at the Novotel Canberra & I will let others know of my experience.

« Not to the usual experience at a Novotel. »

Very confusing booking in process . We had an accessible room which had a trip edge at the door of the bathroom. The breakfast was not a terrific experience with faulty coffee machines and an exploding juicer leaving orange residue over the floor. We actually ate elsewhere the next morning due to our experience the previous day. The pool area is fantastic .

Jamie Families - 05/10/2019 AccorHotels review
« Satisfactory but room to improve »

The young guy at reception was a little rude and not very helpful. Paid a hefty parking at Novotel and it was a big mess. Room was outdated and had a stale smell. Pool was freezing and only went once due to it being too cold and kids were upset. Breakfast was not at a decent standard and needs to improve. No free Wifi

« Good location and great for kids »

Easy access to Restaurants and a bonus for the kids to swim all year round in the Indoor pool. Would be better if parking was complimentary.

« great staff but the rooms need an upgrade and it is a very noisy place. »

The check in was good had to wait a while because it was busy but staff were friendly and welcoming. I was provided a room upgrade? when i got to the room it was next to the service area for the floor. It was noisy all night and day. Room was OK but the bed frame is all frayed and the stuffing is coming out of it. after I had left i was billed for mini bar purchase i did not have however on calling the issue was resolved by very polite and apologetic staff.

« Indifferent »

Neighbours were talking loud on their phone until around 2am Was right outside the lift with adults and children yelling not realising they were outside room doors. Was told that I owed $32.50 for mini bar when I did not touch the mini bar. When I asked what would happen the woman on the other end of the call said "I suppose we have to trust you". Asked to stay another night was told there was only one room left at an outrageous price and they wouldnt hold it for me so I could get it approved even though I mentioned I was corporate - Accenture. Meaning I had to pack up and move to another hotel for one night. Was in the lift with 3 other people and the lift behaved weird. Told concierge and she told us we didn't know how to operate the lift correctly.

« OK »

Room was clean and comfortable. Parking area is very tight and congested. Breakfast was only very average with long queue to be seated. More staff needed in this area.

Anonymous Couples - 03/10/2019 AccorHotels review
« Mostly positive. »

Mostly positive although the pillows were very hard and I ended up with a very sore neck. We couldn't understand why our car was moved when a car the same size was parked in that spot. I understand cars can be moved, but if a car is the same size, I am puzzled about the need to move it. Our room was very comfortable and quiet which we really enjoyed.
