I return to this Novotel on recent during business trip its a unique place to stay with its location and sea views. A stroll down to Acland Street and a tram stop right out the door on the Esplanade. Everything you could want the rooms are great - quite comfortable, large and well appointed. Bistro 3182 is also a good...

Mum and I stayed here for one night in March 2017. The hotel itself is ok, the room we had was probably on the lower end of the rooms they have there, the ones they show on the webpage are obviously the nicer ones. The room we had was a very odd shape and it kind of felt like they...

I have had to stay in this hotel on many occasions on business trips payed by my company and I'm yet to have an enjoyable experience. Hotel is unkempt, noisy and uncomfortable. Spare pillows provided in the room are smelly and fusty. Duvet is thin failing to provide any warmth whatsoever. Tv was a bad connection so the channels were...

Thanks for your feedback Hayley. Whilst it was disappointing to hear you were underwhelmed with some aspects of your stay the feedback does provide me a good indication on areas in which we can improve. I will look at some of the items I can fix and work on these. Thanks Daniel Payne General Manager

Stayed here on 2 occasions in March each for 4 nights. We did not like first room and they moved us and I could not fault service after that. The reception staff were all very friendly and helpful but Peter particularly stood out - fantastic customer service. Would definitely stay here again.

My previous review dates from 2013 and nothing has changed here. The photo here above does not show the reality as the facade is very dirty and so are the windows. Downpipes are very rusty and the rust marks run down the outside walls. Our room that we have been renting since 2006 has not changed. we are still sitting...

Stayed for a couple nights with two kids and would recommend family rooms. Good location for beach, Acland street and access to city. Staff very helpful. Pool was better in morning as in the sun. Car park had plenty of space

Charges for wi Fi were unexpected and signal connection was very poor. Bloody cheek to ask for charge for parking as cheaper on the esplanade outside the hotel. Room next to lifts should never never be used for paying guests as the racket from that was intolerable. If hadn't been so late at night and tired from travelling would have...

I would say this hotel is pretty average. It's kept clean, the staff were nice to deal with and the hotel is in an amazing location - close to the beach, shops, restaurants, bars, Luna park and tram stops. As other people have stated, it needs a new coat of paint to remove all the scuff marks and the bathrooms...

The pilows were horrible, you need to ask to change them on your day of arrival, because if you just found out how bad they are in the middle of the night you have to spend a first bad night.

this hotel is in a great location being able to catch the tram into the city or just walk down to the local shops and loads of cafes/restaurants in Ackland St or Fitzroy St nearby. It sits at the top of a hill and has great views overlooking the beach if you choose to stay in one of the oceanview...
