There's no more convenient location than the Novotel if your trip involves Civic (the notional CBD of Canberra). Business travellers should however note that most of the corporate/government action is not in Civic. But the hotel has pleasant, competent staff, most of the amenities you'd expect and some great breakfast choices.

This Hotel is in a great location - close to shops and restaurants. We had good, friendly service at both check-in and check-out. We had a lovely, spacious room with a good view. We enjoyed our stay here.

I'm in Canberra for business and hotel choices and corporately approved choices were limited. Novotel is in the heart of the business district. No frills but kind staff, good service and a darned comfy bed. This is no four star hotel but I will stay here on each subsequent stay. The convenience and great staff make it a yes. Can... More

Novotel Canberra is located in the heart of Canberra, next to Murrays bus stop from Sydney, only a few step from the Canberra City Central shopping mall, and 6-7 minutes walk to the Australian National University. I booked the hotel through website, and stayed 2 nights in Standard Room 2 Double beds, with the cost of 351.9 AUD. The room... More

On arrival Damish on reception was very helpful and upgraded our room to a suite on the sixth floor. Car park attendants were always friendly and helpful. A pleasant surprise was the bottle of champagne in our room sent up by Mathew Holmes and the buffet breakfast was hot, well stocked and coffee ordered from the barista much better than... More

Fast check in. Friendly helpful team. TClean and comfortable standard size rooms in the centre of town. Buffet style breakfast with lots of variety. The team members had lots of knowledge about the sight to see in the city.

So, this hotel is "average" at best. It's comfortable, but it's extremely dated. I'll stay here again in the event that my other preferences are unavailable. The rooms are about 10-years overdue for a refurbishment. You can get much better value in Canberra.
