Our stay was excellent. The hotel is ideally situated. The room and the service were excellent. The breakfast on the first morning was excellent particularly with the juice machine unfortunately this was not available on the second morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic Buffet Breakfast"
This was the 2nd time staying in Novotel Canberra. We chose this hotel cos it is close to the Canberra Center and everything. We all enjoyed the swimming and gym facilities in our 2 days stay. The highlight was the buffet breakfast as the kids ate free. It seemed the only hotel has this special benefit. One thing you need to beware is when you do your […] booking, you need to know you pay in $US instead of $AU. We also recommend the Jamies' Italian Restaurant in the Canberra Center.

"Novotel Canberra feedback"
Great stay, great service and convenient location. Room was very clean and comfortable. Aina at reception was fantastic and treated us to a fruit platter with sweets for the kids, as a gift for our celebration stay. Aina was genuinely friendly and assisting. Such a great location with cafes and restaurants just putside the hotel. Great heated spa and […] warm pool, especially with rain outside. Lovely buffet breakfast too. Thanks Novotel staff.

"A great weekend place to be"
A weekend location that provided comfort and access to all Capitol venues via public transportation. Two full days fit the bill. Hotel staff are helpful and go out of their way to please.Genuine Expedia guest review
My husband and I stayed for the weekend to see the Inca exhibition. The hotel was very comfortable and the staff very friendly. The restaurant was exceptional as wellGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel close to ANU & other places of interest"
Good hotel. Having said this, WiFi and parking are rather expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome location and very nice room"
We will definitely stay here from now on when we go to Canberra. We've stayed here twice now and both times needed to check in early-and they let us! perfect location to downtown Canberra.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pleasant stay, nice staff, comfortable room. Get the breakfast included if possible, because individual pricing is outrageous.Genuine Expedia guest review

Perfect location for the Multi Cultural festival. Room dated and basic as it was a twin bed room but it was clean and comfortable with a newer bathroom. Weird there was no fan in a renovated bathroom but it was perfectly fineGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Weekend away in Canberra"
Great location, plenty to do around Canberra. Room was comfortable and clean. There was a problem with Breakfasts, they were very disorganised and both days we had to wait for a seat, crockery and for food refills.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice & central to main central shopping area, walk to shops & restaurants. Parking was a little bit of a hassle, as out the front their was only Pick up & drop off point, which I didn't think I could park in at the time to check in, so parked around the block then came back to reception to check in. I was also meant to receive a bottle of wine on arrival […] however this was not forthcoming, although I don't drink so wasn't concerned. Room was plenty spacious enough. Staff in breakfast area were pleasant & friendly. I would stay here again due to location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Australia Day in the Capital"
A good 4 star hotel. Staff were wonderful, polite, helpful, cheerful. Nothing was too much trouble - even though it was a very busy weekend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
4 days three nights, going to the usual tourist spots. The Novotel is a great location for easy of getting around the city and surrounds and it is only a 5 minutes walk to a great selection of restaurants and pubs and the shopping areaGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location. Not so great service."
My partner and I stayed her for three nights while she was in Canberra for work. The hotel is in a great location. Close to Lonsdale Street for great eats as well as the main shopping area in Civic which also has great places to get dinner and lunch. The rooms are smallish, but nice, new and clean. On the two occasions I ask the staff on the front desk […] a questions they were extremely rude. The first guy told me to Google the question myself and the second guy let out a massive inconvenienced sigh. Not the type of service you expect from an Accor hotel!

"good comfortable but expensive for internet"
It was a good stay but disappointing that Novotel Canberra doesn't provide comeplimentary wireless internet access during stay. They provide guests only 30min complimentary access, and charge $25 per day. In addition, parking is a bit expensive - $20 per day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Such a great place"
Great experience! Staff are lovely. Location is very central and makes for a great weekend away being extremely close to civic! Overall would easily recommend this place to anyway!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The bed was slightly uncomfortable and I wished we could have opened a window in the room, but apart from that, excellent service from hotel and restaurant staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and comfortable"
Great stay, very comfortable beds, nice breakfast. $20 per night for parking is way over the top though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is in a really good location. Very easy to get to all major attractions and is only a very short walk from a 'Hop on Hop off' bus stop. and right next door to the interstate bus terminal. Rooms are spacious and well cleaned. Service is first rate. Great facilities (pool, spa, sauna and Gym). Will definitely Stay again next time I'm in Canberr […] a.

Central location to many restaurants. One of the staff, Chenda was particularly helpful, professional and friendly, which made our stay even more pleasant- thank you.

"Overall great stay"
Great hotel, friendly staff, would stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Valet service, management person attentive, helpful & professional. Reception disinterested no eye contact, smile or warmth. Continually gazing at computer screen. Perhaps new to position? Lift problematic - non-responsive to key card. No stair access to 2nd floor! Carpet shabby & warn. Room service friendly but food presentation & quality of food lacking. […] Curried chicken dish unappetizing in appearance and taste. TV reception kept cutting out and constantly re-calibrating. Reception offered option of changing rooms, but tired after arriving from long drive, to move was not an option - easier to simply switch TV off. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Handy but not great."
Overnight stay. Central location. Room very good, apart from cramped bathroom, shower water runs over floor. Man at front desk was quite unwelcoming. $20 per night for underground car park is a bit much, and it's not so simple to take the car in and out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to center of the city"
It was close to the city and amenities. The staff were OK. There was no pickup from airport and the meals were costly.Genuine Expedia guest review
Matching staffing levels with busy periods would be advisable. The priority desk computer was "not working" however the sour faced man who said this, then proceeded to work on it for his own purposes. This left one staff member assisting a growing line of people. Some guests require lengthy service conversations and it is not a good first impression […] (in my case). The rest of the staff in the bar and room service etc were magnificent. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My friend booked Novotel last time directly and they gave a better room and much comfortable and larger. Then next time we selected expedia and booked it, they choose a smaller and older condition room for us. Also when we checked in i said we will not be staying for 3 nights, only one, then the receptionist did not mentioned that they have to charge […] us for 2 nights, then when we check out, the other receptionist said they have to charge 2 nights stay anyway.

Room was comfortable, but dated. The hot water in the shower was only luke-warm at best. Had to pay for in-room WiFi ($12.50 for 2 hours) which at the room rates we were paying, I believe should have been complimentary. Breakfast was rather expensive for what it was ($30 pp) though some nice Braddon and Civic eateries are within easy walking distan […] ce. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Close to the city"
The room was not appealing as the bathroom had no hand basin in it. It was located out of the bathroom. We waited for 10 minutes to get into the carpark, but then had to drive around the front entrance to the front desk and inquire about parking, then had to drive back around and then waited for about 5 minutes before we were buzzed in!Genuine Expedia guest review
