« Our favourite hotel in Canberra »

We're here again for another relaxing stay. This hotel is just so convenient, we can't imagine staying anywhere else. The Canberra shopping precinct and restaurants are a short walk away. There is even a tram stop at the front door. We were here for the Floriade which was also walking distance as well. The staff here are always professional and helpful. Management have always looked after our needs and special requests. Your loyalty is really rewarded at this hotel. The rooms we have stayed in have always been comfortable and spacious.The food at the buffet breakfast is excellent and the dinners are good. We love the pool area with the spa and sauna. We always recommend this hotel to our friends and families who are after a great holiday escape in a convenient spot in Canberra.

« 4 day stayover in Canberra »

My son and I enjoyed our stay at your hotel. We found the staff to be very obliging. Breakfast was very good and our room service was spot on. We were unaware that car parking was going to cost us $25.00 per day extra but I would suppose was not unreasonable although the car parking facility was very tight and required staff to park the car. Overall we would stay at the hotel next time we were in Canberra as the location was very central.

« Novotel Canberra »

For such an hotel with is great location, I sincerely believe it needs a room upgrade, it looks so old as to compare to the photos on the website; the furnitures, carpet etc. We enjoyed the breakfast, indoor swimming pool, hot tub and Suna which compliment our stay. Thus I wouldn’t stay there anymore, thanks. which compliment our stay

« Great location & friendly service »

The location is great, right in the CBD area and close/in walking distance to Canberra Centre. Breakfast is nice. And the service is also great & friendly. The only thing negative, if at all, is the tight parking space. It's very hard to open car door without touching a car parking next to our car. My car door also had a scratch potentially from the cark parked next to us over the night.

« Novotel Canberra - had the most comfortable stay here! »

Travelling with my hubby, we were looking forward to checking in to Novotel Canberra. Pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a king room, thank you! The room was most comfortable with ample space. We had a relaxing 2 night stay & slept really well. Breakfast was great with a variety of food to please everyone. The lady who checked us in (Emma?) was friendly & professional. The housekeeping staff was also friendly & polite. It has been a lovely stay at your hotel, thanks for having us. If we do visit Canberra again, we will stay here again. The only complaint would be about parking, $25 per night is very steep especially for pensioners. $15 would be more reasonable. Maybe the hotel can think about offering discount to seniors/pensioners.

« Friendly staff, Excellent room »

Check in was easy and I was in my room within minutes. The room was large and very comfortable. Room service was quick and friendly (I arrived late in the evening).

« Couldn’t cope with a full house. »

Sadly not the best stay we’ve had at Canberra Novotel. Wait time for car was long. No tables available for breakfast at 9am. Went to pack car instead, car was at another car park. Came back just after 9:30am to be told breakfast was over. Complained to front desk, she helped us out by getting us into breakfast. Staff were obviously stressed after a long weekend considering there was an argument between staff. Alert on the other hand were handling the craziness with a great attitude. Very unfortunate that this stay was so average as have decided to go elsewhere on next visit.

« We enjoyed our stay at Novotel Canberra »

Good: - excellent service at front desk - the free zooper-doopers were popular with the kids - the pool area was beautiful and well maintained - our room was tidy and in good order Not so good: - we weren't able to use our Accor Plus card in the restaurant because it was a public holiday - having come from interstate, we had no idea it was going to be a public holiday and it was a disappointment to find out there would be a 15% surcharge and that we wouldn't be entitled to the normal discount. This was especially frustrating because before we came to Canberra, we had called the hotel to ask about using our Accor Plus card in the restaurant and were planning to use our points in conjunction with the discount to pay for the meal. Thanks for taking our feedback.

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!!

« Great location, tired facilities »

As the title says, this is a great location, but the rooms are poorly designed (how on earth is a sink in the main room acceptable these days?). The corners of the bed jutted out into the cramped spaces and the wear and tear on them indicated it wasn’t just us that had knocked their chins repeatedly. Room service never once answered the phone first go - it took a call to reception to get an answer.

« Non existent service »

Multiple failures 1. Despite putting in a request (while checking in online) and arriving a few hours after indicate time, the room wasn't ready and we had to wait 30 minutes and it was taking even longer. We asked to forego the request as it was kids bed time and were given another room. When we got to it, the sofa bed wasn't made and took two calls and over 15 minutes to get someone to come up to make the kids bed. 2. The lights went out. Took two calls and about 30 minutes for someone to address it (something had tripped) 3. Master bed wasn't made the next day when we went out (had hung the sign indicating room could be cleaned etc.) presumably because a few teddy bears were left in the bed? If it is expected that nothing would be left in the bed for it to be made, it should be made clear by hanging a sign in the room. I stayed at this place earlier in the year and it wasn't either positive or negative experience but based on my recent experience, I am unlikely to return.

« Good but kept having to advise the staff of my platinum membership entitlements »

Good but kept having to advise the staff of my platinum membership entitlements: room upgrade was given after asked, received a welcome drink after I asked, received complementary breakfast after initially being charged. Platinum membership also does not seem to entitle to any soft drink in the mini bar as it does in other Novotels around Australia

« Was ok »

Hotel was convenient to get to shopping and restaurants but was disappointed could not use pool or spa kids took over the whole area jumping in spa and out of control the same at the breakfast wasn’t enjoyable The staff were nice and accommodating the hotel can do with updating being to nicer Novotel hotels.

« MR J. »

I arrived around 2:30 pm on the day as I was planning to put luggage in the hotel and went for a late lunch with the family. However, I was waiting for nearly 1.5 hours to get the housekeeping done. I was told that the receptionist would contact me when it was ready, but I had to wait at the reception again and chased up for the room. Today, I just noticed that you have charged me twice! so I will be calling you tomorrow!

« Never again »

Very unhelpful and unhappy reception staff and parking ‘valet ‘ staff were a joke, total chaos on our arrival. Internet useless

Wayne B. Business - 08/10/2019 AccorHotels review
« Over priced and dismal »

The hotel is simply dated and old, and absolutely does not justify the price tag attached to it. Secondly the receptionist announcing room numbers of travelers - loudly - as they check in is surely a terrible security practice, especially given that one of the elevators has a broken card scanner so anybody can go to any floor...

Vanessa B. Families - 08/10/2019 AccorHotels review
« Close to the city, comfortabel and clean. »

This is my second stay, and I have enjoyed both times. It's close proximity to the city is the main reason. I found the staff to be pleasant and helpful. The carparking is a little daunting, but the boys downstairs are always smiling and helpful.
