Good location

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Rory Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

Reception desk and F&B desk all very polite and helpful. Laundry was quick and efficient. Room struggled a bit with cleanliness and I cleaned quite a few hairs that weren't mine from the desk area near the phone when I first checked into the room. F&B staff were overwhelmed at breakfast with the sheer number of guests. Needs more staff at busy times.

Great Location. Stayed many times

Stuart H. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

Arrived Thursday night. My wife had hurt her knee the day before and Concierge parked car for us as we just wanted to get settled in the room. We told reception that after that one night we would self park and they said they would adjust the billing from valet park to self park. On final receipt we were charged full valet parking for the stay. A bit disappointing as I explained at check out and they said it had been adjusted. A bit disappointing. Apart from that meals and hospitality by all staff was exceptional. We chose not to get our room cleaned as it was only a short stay and staff were under enough pressure anyway and our room didn't need it anyway.

Good stay

Good stay - lovely staff - nice room - only issue was that staying 6 nights I would have expected clean sheets mid stay. I change my sheets at home more often than every 6 nights!

Overall, Poor Experience

Customer review rating 1.0/5

Matt Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

I have stayed in quite a few Accor Hotels in Melbourne, and have to say this was the most disappointing. Firstly, upon arrival, there was a welcome note with 'Dear Jeremy,'. My name is Matt and the person staying was Oliver, so was the previous person Jeremy and the room not cleaned properly? The size of the TV compared to the layout of the room, didn't really make sense. The bed was a fair distance away from the TV, so you couldn't really relax and enjoy, and as the couch was on the side, didn't make for easy viewing. Plus, the couch in the room had no back support, making watching tv (or sitting for that matter), uncomfortable. This is also the first hotel where there is no housekeeping service unless you are staying more than 2 days. Whilst I am less concerned about the bed making and reusing towels, this non service even means that none of the glasses are cleaned, and the Nespresso Coffee Pods/Milk are refilled at any point. When I realised that we were to be left with dirty classes (upon our return late in the afternoon), I spoke with reception requesting a full clean set of glasses/coffee cups and a refill of the Nespresso pods whilst we enjoyed a couple of drinks at the bar. When we returned to the room, they only replaced the coffee mugs and instant coffee (not the glasses (both wine and drinking), small coffee cups or Nespresso Pods) and none of the dirty glasses were removed from the room. I again called reception, asking for a full set of replacement cups and Nespresso pods, and was offered that whilst I wait, they could bring me some detergent to wash them in the bathroom sink. Can I wash my own glasses? Of course I can. But I came to this hotel for a getaway and experience, none of which was met by this Hotel – especially at the $300+ per night for this room. Would I ever return to (or recommend to others) the Novotel on Collins in Melbourne. No.

All was quite good with one disappointment noted was that there was no mini bar or any bottled water provided in the room and the usual Accor package including free drink was not provided.

I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services.

Mark Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

Novotel is well located in the middle of Collins Street. The vibe of the city and the hotel were very quiet and seemed to be still recovering post pandemic. Few staff available at the check-in counters and bar showed that there were few travellers to support.

Room was fine, convenient location for us to get around Melbourne, the rooms were cleaned once every 3 days, the staff at reception were helpful, enough room for families, and reasonable price for a family trip to Melbourne

debb174 TripAdvisor review

Cant have asked more - staying for 4 nights- The staff at the hotel really know how to pamper and feel home away from home. It all started when we meet Julian (The valet)- He is joy of sunshine. Every time we meet him he took us to new journey of things to do. He and concierge team are true ambassador of culturally diverse city. Mark and FO team made our check-in and checkout seamless. Ema, Mintri and breakfast staff were so courteous.

Dear denn174, We are thrilled to hear that you had a wonderful stay at Novotel Melbourne on Collins! Thank you for the special acknowledgement of Julian and Mark. It means so much when they hear feedback such as yours. We very much look forward to welcoming you back to Melbourne soon. Kind Regards, Andrew Maynard General Manager

A very comfortable hotel in a great location. Staff are friendly, helpful and professional The hotel is close to the laneway coffee scene and plenty of choice for casual dining. Tram stop a few metres from the door for free travel in the CBD.

Thank you Explorer231393, for the 5 out of 5-star review. Hopefully, you will visit again as there is much to do and see in Melbourne. Sincerely, Karen Taylor General Manager Novotel on Collins

kazk61 TripAdvisor review

rooms comfortable, staff friendly and helpful. Only gripe was that having paid for full buffet breakfast, which is not cheap, they wanted to charge for second cups of barista coffee. I thought this was a bit mean, and on discussion the manager relented. Still- a let down in an otherwise good hotel

This hotel is in a great location but the rooms are getting a bit tired. Good to see the gym has been revamped though. Staff are very friendly and eager to assist. Breakfast is fairly ordinary - could od better with this.

Dear frankswanberg, Thank you for providing feedback. Pleasing to know you liked our friendly hospitality, my team is proud of this. We strive on comments to be better and will review the breakfast variety . Hope to see you in the future so you will notice the added choices. Sincerely, Karen Taylor General Manager
