4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Stayed at the Novotel following at late flight into Brisbane. Whilst the hotel is not within the airport precinct it is only a matter of minutes away by car. The hotel has a 24 hour reception which accommodated our midnight check in. Parking the car was free by parking in the car park opposite the front entrance. The bed was comfortable and the rooms very quiet. Being close to the DFO shopping centre allowed some time filling after checking out. We would stay there again if we were arriving late into Brisbane again.

This Hotel is lovely, a very modern sophisticated hotel, the staff are lovely, concierge was exceptional with giving my kids a small gift on arrival. The restaurant is very nice, great food and an awesome bar. The rooms are very generous in size with all modern furnishings.

Great for a spot for a DFO shopping experience and a perfect place to stay before or after a flight, We find its a great place to stay if you have an early flight and don't want the stress of Brisbane traffic. The Hotel has a shuttle service which is $5 p/p going to both domestic and international terminals.

My only issue with this hotel is that I have now stayed here a few times and each time I have a terrible nights sleep, and so has my Husband. We just do not find the beds comfortable, will we return again, yes, the location for travel is number one so even if I don't sleep at least I don't have to worry about missing a flight.

Dear dtaust19405,

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your fantastic review.

I’m so pleased you found our staff lovely and in particular our concierge team. Great to hear your kids enjoyed the Novotel gifts as well. I’m very however to hear you found the beds uncomfortable. Our Housekeeping Manager will investigate.

We look forward to your next visit.

Best Regards,
