The usual high standards, from car parking, reception and room presentation were met. The only concern that we had, was a staff dispute behind the bar, although interesting it was very unprofessional.

Very professional and excellent rooms

Just needed an overnight stay at short notice. The hotel was well located, and the facilities ok. The rooms are showing their age, and need a refresh. The bathrooms were below par, with water spilling out of the shower, and the shower rose abysmal.

poor service

Anonymous Families - 12/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

it wasn't great. I usually enjoy staying at accor hotels and this was average at best. The room carpet was dirty, the shower leaked, the bed was not made up when I arrived and they got my room service order wrong . They also ordered me a maxi taxi which was not a maxi taxi and the mirror I was transporting got smashed.

Good

Donna Business - 12/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Room very tired, linen was nice except for stains on the decorator pillows. Room seemed dusty. we ate at restaurant dinner, being very kind it was one of the worst dinners we have ever had, service was very creepy with waiters asking for phone #s to exchange details for business. Breakfast was nice.

Great location. Strange room facilities.

Greg H. Couples - 11/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Good location. The bathroom had no vanity in it - it was outside in the room which was a bit weird. Bed;s were comfortable. Rooms were dated.

We stay here regularly but not as good as usual

Maureen (. H. Couples - 11/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We requested a Weekend Australian. The Concierge didn’t tell us they didn’t have it .A Sydney Morning Herald was delivered to our room. The dining room experience was not as slick as usual. The staff,however were quite pleasant. When my husband went to pay the final bill he wanted to use his own debit card but my American Express was charged instead and obviously the interest s well

Nice & clean & central

Aman Couples - 10/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was comfortable and the breakfast was great. However customer service could be improved. Counter staff seemed disinterested. Please teach them to 'smile', and show that they are happy to serve. We asked a few times about the car parking situation and it was still unclear. On checkout the charges were not clarified with us, and when I received the email bill it included someone else's bar tab. (when I rang back it was rectified). I do not like the fancy bathroom taps that operate mirror fashion. Even so, one shower tap was installed the wrong way round so it was difficult to operate. (room 234 if you want to check)

Well located

Marisa W. Business - 09/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The check in wait was 10 minutes at 5.30pm on Wednesday 5.2.2020. The hotel alarm went off in the middle off the night. The voice over was so loud and came on three times. This is the second time I have stayed at the Novotel and at check in they asked for my email, phone number and other details that I gave them at my first stay. This made the check in process a lot longer than needed. The location is perfect for me, so I will give it another go. Breakfast was lovely. The first visit I had a lovely room, the second visit I was given a disabled room (304) and the bathroom had an unpleasant odour.

Very disappointing

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Alistair Business - 09/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The room was old, stained carpets, torn pillow cases and it was probably the worst hotel I have stayed on for 3 years - especially at 400 / night.

Room was very ordinary and dated. The bathroom basin was right beside the bed and he mirror had to be held with one hand so it could be looked into.

Anonymous Couples - 09/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Not complimentary water in room on arrival. No complimentary bottle of wine on arrival. Discussed this with counter person when checking out and he was not going to give us one. Lady on other counter fixed it up straight away and sorted this out. The bar had no sauvignon blanc at the bar one night. Just a few things that need looking at as stayed at the Mercure in Wagga Wagga the night before and that was very pleasent. Coffee was cold one night and i sent it back as it was to cold.

As always, another great stay at the Novotel Canberra. The rooms are spacious with very comfortable beds. Our meals at the first edition restaurant were excellent.
