The position is good near Paddys market. The room is standard and not very impressive at all. Beds were comfortable and the rooms were quite. Great Thai food around the corner. Receptionist was not the friendliest. She questioned my booking until she found that my name had been spelt wrong by the peson taking the booking.

We booked into the Novatel for an anniversary treat so we didn't have to drive home after the theatre. This was our first stay at this hotel and it won't be our last.

Picked this hotel for it's location close to the Qantas Credit Union Arena and wasn't disappointed. Room was clean, spacious and beds were very comfortable - exactly as pictured. Room included parking and was easy to locate. Close to Chinatown and Market City for shopping. Nice hotel.

Having two young kids I have often been disappointed by how un-family friendly many hotels are. Just type 2 adults 2 children into... More

Now I stay at a lot of the accor hotels and expect novotel to be up there. The hotels location was great, close to George Street. No view but that didn't worry me. When you walk into the foyer/reception it's got that wow factor and I thought ok I've booked a great hotel. First impression of room was yep this... More
