Service was very slow in dining room. Quality of Cooked breakfast was poor to average. Reception was not engaged and could not provide help for vistor's re touring and sights. The comment was look at the brochure board. This is probably the worst experience in a Novatel in Australia and across the Accor range that we have stayed in including Sofitel and mecure and Ibis. Lift your game. You're getting a premium for room rates, don't take it for granted because you are in the centre of Canberra etc. We need to get some step in our pace across the board in this Hotel. Room was at least roomy. Do staff have a public servant mentality because they are in Canberra?
