We decided to stay here to avoid the worry of getting to the airport on time the next day. Check-in was cordial and the room was clean. The pool is of a lap kind but has windows which gives the feel of looking into a fish tank (the kids took advantage of this). We booked in for dinner at Catalina and the level service was hit and miss. The table was crowded and the restaurant supervisor was of no help. The bread came out with the entrees and if i didn't say something to him I'm sure he would have left the meals somewhere else. I found him rude and unhelpful. I had to get our drinks from the bar as the waitress spent most of her time looking up into the air. I had the OP Rib for main and it was grisly and tough but the wait staff didn't seem to concerned about it. Maybe it's a common occurrence. However, breakfast was good and the staff courteous in the morning.
I have now stayed at every Novotel in Queensland and while this wasn't the worst one and comes 2nd last. More than likely I won't bother returning for another round.
