Good location service at check in dining and bar good. There is an extra charge for parking however parking is easy to get to. The novotel is within easy walking distance of most Brisbane venues, cabs also easy to get.

The room was great, the service was great in all sections of the hotel and restaurant. The food was wonderful and a great staff with wonderful and friendly service and food. We had one of their accessible rooms which made life so much easier for us both.

Room Tip: Go for a room up high for the view

We stayed 1 night in mid Feb as our Valentine celebration and had dinner at the hotel. Hotel, location and stay was fantastic and only good things to say. Food was disappointing. The beef wok I had was totally overwhelmed with the taste of English mustard, breakfast had a fantastic choice but there were those tiny little flys over all the fruit and food and just a little off putting.

Stayed here due to flight delays, could not have asked for any better service. The rooms were clean & well presented. Great location to be able to walk to the city and enjoy the sights of Brisbane. Cant complain at all about your hotel. Thank you.

I stayed at the Novotel in BNE 26/27/28JAN13 - this was during a period of wild weather.

I travelled for business.

A travel agent booked me into this hotel - it's not where I normally stay.

Firstly, the hotel deserves it's 4-star rating. Staff and service was very good and without exception the staff were professional, informative and helpful. I really noticed this. Staff would have been under pressure due to guests being subject to travel cancelations and all kinds of drama because of the residual of Cyclone Oswald.

OK, so I was in BNE for business and onward travel to ROK and GLT. On Biz I look for calm and comfortable rooms with natural light and sensible work areas and sensible access to power points for the myriad of devices.

The room on the 13th floor was easy on the senses and overall lent itself well to "business spread" - devices, files and personal stuff all over the place. I'm not sure if it was a standard room or not? Maybe not as the work area and recliner were particularly good. Natural light and view really good.

Bed fine. BUT watching TV in bed was a bit of a neck stretch. (Grumpy old 50yo biz person - I'm allowed).

Coffee making could have been better .. I'm kind of expecting real coffee in a room of this standard now. Nescafe Blend 43 - you gotta be kidding!

BUT and this is a BIG BUT .. the shower in the bath was a houdini like nightmare. The space available for turning was miniscule AND it was impossible NOT to hit idiotically placed soap holders and wall gizmos .. don't t even get me onto the incredibly dangerous raised plug. The shower facility is so bad that I learned to take a shower in the spacious and non-murderous showers in the fitness/pool facility.

The Management need to do something about the shower in the bathroom(s) like NOW - you will end up with a serious accident.

The fees I paid included breakfast .. I have to say that the breakfast spread was of a high standards and staff were there to make proper coffee so that I didn't have to fear the contents of the urn .. You would be hard pressed NOT to find a range of things to eat .. I go for fresh fruit, bread rolls and muffins (true!) BUT there were heaps of sausages, bacon eggs and all of that.

Overall the Novotel Brisbane does NOT immediately come across as a biz hotel at all .. the entrance is spartan and there is kids play area next to the cafe/bar. However it's rooms definitely lend themselves to biz travel ... BUT the shower .. this out weighed a LOT of the positives .. however I do know about the showers in the gym now ..

Would I stay again .. maybe.

Room Tip: Top Tip: Ask about the shower!
