4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

Spacious bedroom and bathroom. Walk in shower and no bath. Poor lighting for shaving. Good bed and decent desk for laptop work. Dislike paying for Internet (should be free) and $9 for a 1 litre of Evian is a bad joke. Reasonable gym. Plenty of cheap eats nearby. Good central location.

Room Tip: Look at room pics online. Ask at time if check in. Avoid rooms near the lift.

I recently spent 1 night at the Novotel, it was go ing to be 3 but!
At a first night rate of $400 plus for a twin room I expected something more than my wife and I got.
The room had no fresh air and the air conditioning was just , wi fi was extra and only way to watch T V was on one' s bed Chair in a corner and some sort of lounge,
Really quite ordinary. No help with luggage very average bar and dining and I am sorry to say tired!
However some members of staff were great, they realised tho issue and did their best.
Breakfast is good but expensive @ 25 for a full meal. Not again for me .

Room Tip: If you do stay here look for a higher room and see room before booking in, I learned later there we...

The Novotel is really well placed in Canberra to access great local restaurants on foot, (I recommend La Courgette, Chairman & yip & our favourite - Ostratos Greek Restaurant), plus local pubs & clubs.
The hotel is very comfortable & in comparison to other cities quite well priced.
