“A definite before flying”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We stayed at the Novotel Brisbane Airport for 2 nights before flying out of Australia. The close proximity to the airport was the main factor when choosing the Novotel Brisbane Airport and I wouldn't hesitate in staying there again. Situated in a small business district was actually very pleasing - well kept gardens, roads and shops surrounding the hotel was a bonus, with a choice of Woolworth's, coffee shops/cafes, hair and beauty salon and a very expansive Dan Murphy's all across the road was very handy especially for any 'last minute' items and I shouldn't forget to mention the DFO within the vicinity.
Within the hotel, the food and service was great! The hotel's general presentation was very neat and the impression of 'new'. The rooms were very spacious, we had 2x king executive interconnecting rooms which were more than comfortable including the beds - take advantage of the pillow menu.
The gym was small, more than 2 people and it was a fight for air! Nevertheless the pool made up for it - Great and a must!
If you are catching the airport shuttle, it's $5 p/h FYI have the correct cash.
We felt so relaxed and fully charged before an early international flight, highly recommend.

Very accommodating and convenient to both the airport and the event tht we came to see.
We ate in the restaurant for dinner and again for breakfast. It was very good and staff very friendly.
Beds and pillows very good.I will be staying there again when traveling.

This motel is very convenient to the airport. The staff advised that there is undercover security parking at the hotel for when you are away. My vehicle had already been booked in else where but will definately consider hotel parking for next time. The staff where very obliging during our stay. Will definately stay again.

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.
