5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

We booked a superior room with an ocean view, and that was what we were given. There is a surcharge, and we found it to be worthwhile.Staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was quiet, despite it facing the Esplanade with trams.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Great location, nice views for rooms facing the bay, service is ok but quite variable, overall decor is looking tired and in need of refurbishment, clean though, parking downstairs is convenient but $20 per day prob tad excessive, close to eateries and cafes, tram stop outside, worthwhile if you get a good rate. Bed was too soft.

Good location, Comfy Bed, but understaffed restaurant, However food was good. Restaurant was not full but on 2 nights we stayed we were requested to wait about 1 hour before we would be served. went elsewhere first night as had just arrived and we were hungry. Great local restaurants within walking distance. Second night we made enquires and were prepared to wait.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

wanted a four star hotel Novotel Melbourne certainly is not. Swimming pool dirty. Very little hanging space and no further space for any other clothes. Had to live out of suitcases for 10 day stay. Décor very bland and tired. Would return to Melbourne but not to Novotel
