Our room was very quiet and spotlessly clean. The bed was fairly comfortable, with crisp linen, good pillows and excellent bedside lighting. Towels were large, thick and fluffy. The...

We chose Novotel Canberra for a three night stay over the Australia Day weekend for its central location and free breakfast promotion. The hotel is standard Novotel with a large indoor swimming pool and spa, well equipped gym and comfortable bed.
