Enjoyed our stay here for a couple of nights between Christmas and New Year 2021. Awesome staff we were made very welcome Plenty of secured offstreet parking The Atrium dining and bar area is very good with lots of natural lighting through the tent-like dome. Lots of well established greenery As stated below ... DONT get rooms 108, 208 or 308, they are on an angled corner of the building and the toilet/shower/kitchenette are all crammed together During this visit period ... masks were necessary for all vacc'ed and unvacc'ed when inside the building, other than in your room I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and encourage other people to stay here

Hotel's Favorite
Their devotion to the internal garden fills my heart with gratitude & joy each visit. The dining space is so well done with the atrium space, outdoor heaters & different levels for seating. The staff are so very helpful, going above & beyond, what I would expect, normally from a hotel. It’s a sheet delight to visit Canberra as a result; it really elevated our experience, quite frankly

We chose Pavilion on Northbourne for its convenient location, free parking and affordable rates. We were delighted with our 2-night stay from check-in to check-out, and would definitely return and recommend! The front desk and restaurant staff were warm, helpful and efficient - especially Dan and Hana. Our queen room overlooking the rear carpark was a good size, well-appointed, clean and comfortable. Bonuses were a shower-over-bath if you like to relax, and windows that opened for fresh air. The $10 voucher valid at the oasis-like Atrium Bar & Restaurant for each day you say 'No' to a room service is a clever 'green' incentive. The breakfast buffet for $23 was great value - hygienically and well-presented with a regularly replenished variety of hot and cold options including cereals, sliced fruit and pastries. Dinners were easy being within walking distance of the vibrant array of restaurants in both Dickson and Braddon's Lonsdale Street. We didn't have time to use the outdoor pool, but it looked clean and inviting. We also didn't have time to use the gym, which was small and could do with a little TLC, but is still fit-for-purpose. The Pavilion on Northbourne might no longer qualify as 5-star, but she has aged gracefully and you won't be disappointed!

Our experience at this hotel was disappointing on checking in the staff member appeared to be confused about information about my booking which turned into a confusing situation however the issue was corrected after showing my email. after this we got into the lift which was filthy with hand prints on the glass Ceiling and general grime after reaching our floor we headed towards our room to find the Decor old and brown like it was from the 1970's, Dirty Cups and glassware in the cupboards and a unclean coffee table with sticky food waste left on it the window stills covered in thick dust and dead insects. the ceiling was leaking and we found they had placed 2 ice cream buckets under it which is not a great impression for a so called 4 plus star hotel which must have gained this rating when the place was built. The bed was sagging in the middle and the towels were provided were worn out we thought we would give The breakfast a go which is a huge rip off at $46 per person and this doesn't even include a barista coffee which was extra on top it was the most expensive breakfast option at a hotel in Canberra it was pretty poorly presented on the plate. We found the staff working in the cafe to be very helpful. All in all i would avoid this hotel and would reconsider another visit should these things change or be renovated in the future there are much nicer hotels on Northbourne Ave that are modern/clean and for a few dollars more you get better value and a cheaper breakfast.

Went out for drinks with friends and when we returned after midnight the front door was locked and no one was answering the mobile number that the sign instructed us to call, after around 30+ minutes the late shift luckily arrived and let us in, as it was late I came down in the morning to speak with reception where the manager actually had the nerve to ask if we had tried the side entrance which is inaccessible after 11pm. Incredibly disappointing, would not recommend, and will be going out of my way to encourage people to stay elsewhere

Response from Dan Brophy, Guest Services / Front Office at Pavilion on Northbourne
Responded Nov 4, 2021
Dear Aussie Traveller241, It is extremely disappointing to read that your experience did not meet expectations. We train our people to go out of their way to make sure each guests stay is the best it could possibly be. The hotel had been closed for many weeks just prior to your stay due to COVID restrictions. We were unaware that our night staff were not informed of the proper procedures to follow during our reopening. I do want to apologize for the inconvenience that this oversite has caused. I can assure you that we have addressed this issue with our night staff and set in place procedures to prevent any issues of this kind going forward. If you would like to discuss your stay further, please feel free to contact me at the hotel. Kind Regards Dan Brophy Front Office Manager
