A nice clean hotel in a good location. Staff were very friendly. Only thing we were given a disabled room without a bath and had a 3 year old which was in our booking information. Lots of areas to relax and tge bar was great allowing us to have a drink whilst with our son.

Stayed just one night and it was pleasant enough. The staff on the desk were exceptionally friendly- the best customer service I have experienced in a long time.
The room was nice and modern with an outlook to an area below with an outdoor chess board. The bed wasn't as good as I had hoped- a bit saggy. Also the shower was over a bath which was slightly annoying to get in and out of.
We went to the hotel bar before we went out and sat outside which was a nice way to spend an hour- shame there was no view of the river though. The check out is 11am which is nice for a sleep in. Overall it was a nice stay and would definitely stay again.

The rooms are very nice and clean. Pillows are not hard but have substance. Baths are spacious and well constructed. But this is not a business friendly hotel and for that natter no Novotel seems to be business friendly. Wifi is extra and the free wifi in the common areas has to be reset every 30 minutes, annoying. It is a very nice hotel otherwise and is located in a good area with lots of restaurants within walking distance.

Room Tip: Ask for river side rooms, quiet and nice view.

Was a wonderful place to stay.
We booked last minute & didn't arrive till 11pm, but the staff were very friendly. As we drove through the Main Street we were very concerned as we could hear the music getting louder from the clubs & bars over our music in the car & the Novotel getting closer, but we couldn't hear a thing once we arrived at the Novotel. It is so central to everything & highly recommended.
The room was very nice & the bed was so comfortable. We ordered late night room service & it would have to be one of the best I have ever had. We just got the ham & cheese toasted sandwich for $15. At first I thought what a rip off, but it was so hot when it arrived unlike other places I have stayed & it came with two toasted sandwiches, chips & ranch sauce, so definitely value for money.
The room layout & design was very nice just like the hotel. Definitely recommend staying here.
