Right in the cbd & there is access to Lambton quay via an in hotel lift. Room was comfortable and had a real king size bed. Room decor was a bit CSI crime scene with bloodstains on the curtains but otherwise really comfortable and quiet. Only issue is if you stay out beyond 7 pm you need to use your... More

We have stayed here several times recently. The Hotel is modern and well set out, but the really good service is what makes the difference. Nothing seems too much trouble, the staff are friendly and prompt to fix any issues. They make all the difference. Great view from the eigth floor. The hotel is very handy to great shops, simply...

We have no complaints about the Novotel, except that they really need new curtains! (the "bloodstain paint job" pattern is inadvisable) The room was lovely, the gym was perfect, valet parking a huge bonus. Only caveat: Location-wise, the Novotel is in a tricky spot. If you stay out late (10 PM or later) you have to go through another hotel... More

I stayed here on business and enjoyed a comfortable room with everything I needed. Good service from the front desk, and quick checkout time in the morning. The bed was comfortable, and the shower was strong. I enjoyed the buffet breakfast - a nice selection was available, and one of the waiters quickly organised me a copy of the newspaper... More

We were in a standard room on the 5th floor with a view towards the harbour (although most of it was of the neighbouring buildings). A decent sized room for two people with a small but serviceable bathroom. Nice comfortable king bed with a choice of pillows. Buffet breakfast was very good, although after 8 days we would've liked a... More

Absolutely loved the contemporary vibe of this hotel! Great location was able to walk to a number of attractions. For a downtown location, the room was spacious and well-appointed. Could not have asked for better service - front desk was very helpful with directions and recommendations for dining.

Have stayed at this hotel a few times now and have never been disappointed. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Booked for one night but changed it to two at the last minute, not a problem. Staff are always happy to help out.Great location, lift down to Lambton Quay is a plus.

We stayed just for one night as we are Accor Staff members and the service was brilliant! Staff were very friendly and really helpful at check in and check out! The kids even got a small soft toy at check in which they were very chuffed with! Excellent location and rooms. Would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay again... More

We stayed for just one night but I could have happily stayed much longer. Incredibly helpful and polite staff and the hotel itself was lovely and clean. Great size room and bed with bath and shower.
