Stayed here for 3 nights with wife as part of a large escorted group touring Australia. I wouldn't characterize he hotel as being "modern", but it is still a very suitable resort lodging. Our room was very clean and our stay was comfortable. We slept very well. Towels and bedding were always clean. The hotel location was very convenient for...

Had a good experience at this hotel. Enjoyed the super large swimming pool which has a sandy shallow end for smaller kids with not so strong swimming skills. The pool also has a swim up bar which is great. Really enjoyed the stay

We arrived on Feb 19 before official check in time and they let us have the room as it was ready. Very much appreciated as we were very tired. The room overlooked the pool. It looked pretty clean when we arrived. The next day there was all kinds of stuff at the bottom and it looked worse as time passed....

Dear WorldTravelerBert Apologies for the issue with your wake-up call. That certainly was a human error on our behalf and it certainly wouldn't have been a nice way to start the day. I'll follow up with the team to make sure times are written down and entered correctly in the future. Our pool Ph levels are tested 3 times a...

Novotel are always fairly reliable, and this resort is no exception. The staff are efficient, and the facilities (pool etc) are good. The room is a really good size, and is relatively modern. The bathrooms, although dated, are still in good condition and are clean. The bed was super comfortable. I had a room overlooking the pool and out to...

Had booked for 2 nights through a 3rd party, noticed that when I arrived, they were going to change my room to the bottom floor right out the back (instead of the 3rd floor overlooking the pool).

Dear AngeKane I'm so sorry about the issues with your room keys. This would have been extremely frustrating to deal with and I can understand why you were so upset about it. Its great to hear that our team members were to efficient to try and fix the problems, but it would have been more ideal if it didn't happen...

Pool is great and location wise it's easy access to everything. Rooms are a little tired but perfectly adequate. The flying foxes can be a bit noisy but otherwise it's all good. If they sorted the rooms out it would easily be a 5.
