We've stayed a lot of different hotels in the Accor chain but this one is probably our worst experience. Breakfast was terrible and room itself was very small. It was fairly cheap and I guess what you pay is what you get.

Noisy plumbing, unable to sleep

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Roxy S. Families - 23/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I always stayed at Novotel Canberra whenever I travelled there but this was definitely my worst experience. Room: outdated, very noisy plumbing heard from other rooms (every time toilet was flushed or shower taken--day and night). Cleaning not done well--my kids dropped some bread crumbs on the floor which have not been vacuumed for two days. Reception - I was waiting in the lobby on Friday 13/03 in the morning for my room to be cleaned. As I have two kids I asked the lady (Asian appearance) if I can turn on the TV in the kids area. She was on the phone and she asked me to wait. She never came back to me with an answer although I was right in front of her. Breakfast - disappointing. No service, we had to wait a long time to finally find someone and put an order through, eggs options were not advertised, food not the best quality and diversity

I was a little disappointed. The staff were ok but not overly friendly or helpful. The room was very dated and I wasn't offered an upgrade as per my membership despite the hotel being obviously quite empty.

Bernadette Families - 21/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We were a late check in at 2am. A mum and three kids and exhausted. We couldn't wake up our other booking and so had to find very last.minute accommodation. Your staff that night were exceptional. Very professional, kind and patient. My young daughter commented on how nice they were. Thank you so much for making a really long day, end comfortably and with such reassurance. We will pay it forward and not forget how wonderful they were

Anonymous Solo - 18/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

A pretty mixed experience. Checkin was longer and more complicated than it needed to be - I had no no special requirements and no-one was around - I just needed a quick check-in to get to my room to start a teleconference. But U had to switch screens three times to suit the preferred workflow of the front desk guy - who took ages to find my reservation. The car park arrangement is quite straight forward but the complicated explanation and procedure makes it sound worse than it is - although parking is VERY scarce. The rooms are basic and getting tired. And the bar guy took way too long to answer a rather simple question. Overall, it's a very sub-expectation Novotel experience. Probably more akin to what you would expect for a more budget-oriented brand. Needs to sharpen up.

Although we expressly advised that we’d be using a hire car we were not advised about the exorbitant costs to use your car park. If we’d known we would have used an alternative hotel that offered free parking. We needed to all house keeping for our toiletries to be renewed on our second day of accomodation

Very helpful and accommodating!

Sally Business - 16/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I had a great stay to Novotel Canberra recently. It was a business trip and I had a teleconference that was due to schedule after my check out and I wanted to stay in my room to participate in it rather than in a noisy café. The Novotel was very accommodating and allowed me an extra later check out (for a very, very minimal extra charge. This really helped me out and I was very grateful to be able to do it on short notice. This was on top of the usual great service and facilities I always get when I stay at the Novotel.

The staff were very polite and accommodating. The only thing that was disappointing was we were accused of having used the min bar which we hadn’t. This leads me to believe the room was not checked properly . Although we were not charged I was quite put out having this discussion.
