Strange room layout and utilitarian. Toiletries minimal at best. Executive Room is large with good desk space. Problems connecting to internet. If you can find a great rate, it might be worth dealing with the problems, but otherwise, look somewhere else.

A very pleasant hotel in a convenient location close to a selection of restaurants.Accommodation in Canberra is generally expensive and the Novotel is no exception.Very comfortable bed and good standard and selection available at buffet breakfast.Stayed on the seventh floor and bathroom ridiculously small barely enough room for shower and toilet.

Stayed here for a total of five nights whilst visiting family. Spacious room with a mini kitchenette gave us plenty of room to move. Conveniently located for most parts of Canberra. A very good nights sleep.

We had a short but great stay at the Novotel, Canberra. The room was spacious and modern - and the bed was one of the comfiest I've ever slept in. The show stealer was the breakfast; organic museli, jams and yoghurts, fresh fruit and hot food options that didn't leave you feeling completely guilty for tucking in. Go for the...

Just spent two nights at the Novotel in Canberra. The little B and B we wanted to stay in was booked, so we booked the Novotel a bit last minute. Well, it was OK, in fact just what you'd expect from a Novotel. Clean, with friendly, reasonably well trained staff. Any problems? The Canberra Novotel is right in the heart...

We really enjoyed our stay here. When we arrived the gentleman at reception was very friendly and helpful giving us some excellent advice on things to do around the area. He also upgraded our room! The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The facilities were excellent and the overall atmosphere of the hotel was great. We loved the restaurant here...

Hotel is in a great location with taxi rank at the front door. Rooms are spacious, beds were soft but a great sleep was had. A bit expensive but it was ok. I would stay there again. Staff were friendly and efficient. Front circular door was odd, concealed behind stickers.

I had a very pleasant stay at the Novotel Hotel in Canberra and it was in a very convenient location for what I wanted to do whilst I was there. My room was comfortable, breakfast was good and dinner was also very pleasant.

This hotel has some of the best most comfortable hotel beds I have found. I spend around 100 nights a year in hotels and motels in Australia and NZ. The food was very very good. I really rate this hotel highly--but dont tell everyone--- because they will go and raise their prices or something
