I was so pleasantly surprised by the Novotel. My room was extremely spacious and immaculate. The front desk staff were delightful without being overbearing and the hotel environment was clean, welcoming and slick.
My friend stayed at the Sofitel which is lauded as being superior & they charge accordingly - the rooms are unremarkable and jaded by comparison. I have stayed at the Hilton previously too which is ok but not amazing.
If you want to stay in Central Brisbane, the Novotel is a great business and leisure hotel. If I had to mention any suggested improvements, pedestrian access could be improved. From Central station (a stones throw away) it is a mission to get there on foot with luggage due to some poor city planning - probably not the hotel's fault but they should look at a way to make it easier.
Well done Novotel. You trumped the big guys :)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay we went through accor and it made it very affordable to stay there, with the accor card we were able to get 50 percent off our meals it made it a bargain great breakfast and dinners. Family loved the mains and desserts. The location is great close to the cbd and airport if catching a taxi is about 35-40 dollars. Only thing to mention is the interesting artwork, headboards and curtains as a reviewer has previously mentioned it looks a bit dexteresqe. If I return to brisbane and the price is right I would stay again !!
Great weekend deal. Specious room, good location and very pleasant breakfast.
Hotel is located in bit dated building but lobby, reception and breakfast areas are upgraded and modern.
Room we stayed is modern and typical Novotel design, just strange blood look like art was bit disturbing
