In Canberra to see the Toulouse Lautrec exhibition. The Novotel was the place to stay, located on top of the Murray's bus terminal from Sydney. Then the local bus stop, route #100, is opposite just for our convenience. Cafes and such at Civic are only a block's walk.

We chose this hotel for its location and it didn't disappoint. Novotel Canberra is next door the iconic Melbourne and Sydney buildings in the centre of Canberra City. Many good restaurants, bars, shopping centres, the Dendy Cinema and National Theatre are merely a short walk away. The hotel has a car park at extra cost but we took the advice...

I have stayed at the Novotel in Canberra a few times now. Its central and only a few minutes by cab to Parliament House so thats a bonus. They have kept the rooms at a high standard and I find them comfortable and clean. I have stayed quite a few times at Rydges Capital Hill which is OK but I...

Novotel Hotels generally give you what you expect - which is a good thing when you travel a lot for business. Novotel Canberra was not an exception to that rule. My only criticism is that the water pressure in the shower was not great. Had a minor issue with very slow service for a meal, but staff were quick to...

We recently stayed at the Novotel Canberra for two nights - we have previously been there about 18 months ago. The hotel is situated in the centre of Canberra and is within walking distance of the main shopping area "City Walk". The hotel is surrounded by restaurants offering all types of cuisines and we particularly enjoy the "Asian Cafe" which...

Stayed just one night here, I believe this joint is a 4-star. Chose here based on favourable Tripadvisor travel compatriot reviews. I gave it 5-start since it was very clean despite not having a recent re-deco, and I found nothing to grumble about Service ------- The front desk was a wee bit formal, maybe due to government type clientele they...

Stayed there on the weekend, for the Toulouse Latrec exhibit - hotel is in a central location with plenty of eateries within walking distance, breakfast buffet was fantastic. We were also upgraded which was a lovely surprise and the suite was really lovely. Will definitely stay there again for any further exhibits - whole family enjoyed it.
