This is a convenient hotel near airport. The rooms are clean and reasonably spacious. The restaurant meal I had was of average quality. Friendly staff. No free wi-fi...a real bugbear of mine. Overall, reasonable but overpriced.

The Novotel Airport in Brisbane has two great attributes. It's close to the airport; and it's ideally situated for business north, south and west of Brisbane, lying in the midst of the new freeway system.

Very well maintained, with good sized rooms and excellent beds, this property excels with great service, friendly and efficient staff and a solid layout.

Double glazed windows, very good beds and ample room sizes make for an excellent sleep!

Positioning near DFO also means a few bargains if time allows.

With its ease of access to and from the airport this property makes for the perfect alternative to the CBD Accor properties too.

Definitely on the re-visit list for business and personal use!

The restaurant serves great food and the breakfasts is very good also.

It was even better value using my Advantage Plus card.

Room Tip: Book for dinner!

The hotel staff were very nice and the room was nice as well. It is a bit overpriced but is very convenient to the airport. It was very get to the hotel though as the signage was not good. Would recommend. Room service was good and the range of options was good as was the wine list.

Arrived latish and still was able to book for dinner in the restaurant.
Had excellent wake up call to get ready and discovered $5 shuttle to the airport.
Apparently you can catch one from the airport. This was not supplied on the web information so e-mail or ask.
Slight delay in getting into Breakfast but all turned out well.
food was of excellent, staff excellent and the best place to stay before and international flight.
15 minutes in the shuttle to the front of the international terminal.

My daughter and I needed to say close to a venue where she was an entrant in the Miss Universe Australia QLD heats, this hotel was the nicest in the area, perfect for our needs to get a good nights sleep and get ready to compete. We plan to come back to stay with friends and hit the outlet stores for some serious shopping, the hotel carpark is connected to the shopping precinct carpark so perfect for some serious shopping and coffee breaks. My only gripe is about the Cesar salad, very tasty but less than half the lettuce I would normally have been served in an $18 salad. Oh, daughter through to state finals :)

I stayed one night at this hotel as i needed to be at the airport early in the morning and it can be difficult getting there on time with all the notorious Brisbane roadworks and heavy traffic. It is a great location and a nice hotel but overpriced. The room was well appointed and furnished but cost $318 with an extra $15 for secure parking and no breakfast included. There is public open parking across the road but if it is raining you have to risk getting wet and also you cannot ensure security of your car. The hotel is over the road from Woolworths and a shopping centre as well as the factory Outlet mall which is great if you are looking for bargains or have time to fill in. The bed was comfortable but I was disappointed there was no bath to relax in. There was a restaurant but i chose room service and must say the vegetarian dish was really nice. Desserts are expensive though, $15 each!

Room Tip: Even though next to motorway and close to airport the room was very quiet.

Found this Hotel a good stopover. We arrived at around midnight. Reception staff were lovely - and really helpful, arranged transport on the bus for us the next morning, etc. Room was reasonable, a bit small. We only paid half price due to a deal, I don't think I would be prepared to pay full price for the room. Breakfast was OK, but pricey.
