“best food in a Novotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

large and spacious (wasted space?) hotel convenient for the airport.
We ordered room service, were advised 45 minutes, rang after an hour and were told the Chef had forgotten the order. Profuse apologies and a free meal. When it arrived it was absolutely superb. vegetable cooked to perfection (rare in an hotel) and perfectly presented.
late but delicious dinner. Well done to the staff for their fine reaction.
unfortunately like all hotels in NZ they charge 1.5% for credit card payments which when our credit card company then charge 2.5% for the pleasure makes traveling in New Zealand more expensive than it need be. Only Oz and NZ do this. Why?

We chose the entertainment package and we had anything BUT entertainment. The concert was cancelled and management chose NOT to inform us. We found out via Facebook and confirmed through bar staff 30 mins prior to supposed pick up time. This was very disappointing and unprofessional on their behalf.

This is a very good option if you need a stop over hotel. Fast check in and friendly staff. The room was very comfortable and clean. My only issue which I think is more to do with Australia being in the internet dark ages is the $25 per 24hr per device internet access. Reception couldn't understand why I needed more than one device. Laptop and iPhone, Wife's iPad and of course a couple of Kindles. I'm not going to sit there all night with 5 devices in front of me but how about per room pricing vs per device. Anyway the wifi was rubbish and almost unusable so they waived the charge.

Good hotel for an overnight stay. Nice and new and helpful staff. rooms very clean and good breakfast. The only thing was disappointing was being charged extra for wifi and shuttle when already had paid a high price for the room. I think these things should be included in the price and standard.

We stayed there for 1 night only on our way back to South Africa. Highly recommended, friendly staff, very comfortable and super clean and in walking distance of the mall. Shuttle is plus taking guests to the airport.

We recently (Jan 2013) stayed at the Novotem Brisbane Airport (our 4th visit). We were only in Brisbane for three nights. Great location with a DFO across the road. A Coffee Club, hairdresser and a Woolworths all a 2 minute walk. The hotel itself still looks brand new. The rooms again still looked new. The linen on the bed was amazing - that whole crisp "hotel" feel. The staff were very helpful and made the suggestion we try their restaurtant for dinner. Well worth the effort. The service was prompt even though the restaurant was close to capacity. Fresh tasty food with cold drinks. Perfect. Check out was prompt and it was very convenient to see the flight departures whilst we settled our account. Will stay there again.

Room Tip: I prefer the premeir room as they have a nespresso coffee machine and a lot larger but even the stan...
