My first impression of the Canberra Novotel is its ordeal of a carpark! Ridiculously small carparking spaces with many being roped off or reserved for later in the night, forcing you into an already packed claustrophobic areas. For a big car such as the Falcon I drive, more than once I thought a scrape was inevitable AND it's $18 a...

I can not complain about this place.If i had to say a bad thing it would be that the pool could be warmer and the parking is a bit tight.Apart from that this place is ideally located in the middle of the main shopping district.There are plenty of great restaurants and pubs near by

We found the staff were great and the rooms were fine although we were upgraded so I am not sure about the standard rooms - the upgrade appeared to be more a standard room. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We booked the Novotel because it had a deal with the Toulouse Lautrec exhibition - daughter joined us from Melbourne, arriving early evening - we flew in later. Thank heavens she had the foresight to demand another room - the first one we (three) were given had only a few hangers OVER the minibar! No drawers in the room and...

We took the Novotel's special French Experience package that included breakfasts, two tickets to the Toulouse Lautrec exhibition at the National Gallery, two "Green Fairy" cocktails, plus a cheese platter and a Bottle of Beaujolais on arrival. Great value, merci beaucoup. The hotel's central location with taxi rank right outside the door is a bonus. Our room was clean and...
