4/10 Fair

Worse stay in Canberra, and they damaged the car
Rooms air con/ but no heating, as temperatures plunged to 5 degrees outside they offered us blankets, then at 9.45pm at night offered to move us to another floor. No offer of discount, or apology, three different service people attended, will never stay there again. Car had a scratch from “valet” parking.

Give it a go !
Not a lot of parking for medium sized vehicles and vehicles taller than 2.1m. Not a bad hotel, just thought the beds would be more comfortable for a Novotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Great location, plenty of restaurants and pubs within walking distance. Buffet breakfast was delicious.

I was unhappy with the overall price. Initially I was givena room without windows opening so too stuffy. I ended upon the 6th floor with balcony after requesting. BUT, I had to pay an EXTRA $30- per night. NOT HAPPY!
