A friend's wife was away with the baby visiting family so a few of us decided a little road trip to Canberra was in order. The goal was to take in a vineyard or two, hit up a few small bars and visit the National Gallery. The Novotel seemed a good place to stay and it proved a fantastic base...

Very good spot for a couple of nights. Stayed in a standard Queen overlooking Northbourne, nice view and not noisy. Quite spacious, apart from the bathroom. Great location in the heart of civic. Book for the breakfast buffet at reception the day before and get $10 off. Id happily stay again.

Hotel room was comfortable and clean. Fit out of the bathroom and the sink a little weird. Live music on the Sunday night I arrived and that was very relaxing. Meal in the restaurant wonderful and so was the service

Great location, service and staff. Close to all the shops and cinemas, restaurants within the CBD. Excellent for visiting the ANU and easy access to all the attractions. Easy driving around town and to the suburbs.

Travelled extensively for many years. This hotel had not one fault. The room, service, restaurant and food was outstanding. Nothing was too much for the staff and they all had smiles. Even the car was in its "to leave" spot when we departed after a great three night stay last weekend.

From check in to check out everything went smoothly. Staff were a delight to deal with & nothing was a problem. The room was well appointed & well presented. Breakfast was a good selection of hot & cold all very fresh & tasty. Great central location.

Loved staying here, it was a great buffet in the morning, the spa was relaxing and the pool was very fun and had lots of things to do! The buffet had lots to offer and was delicious! Lots of restaurants and sites to see around the place and a beautiful view from our bedroom window!
