    Very good

    The view from the room was very nice. The bed was comfortable.

    Shabby patched tiling in bathroom. And generally pooor tiling in bathroom. Having reception on 1st floor instead of ground was not helpful, there was no assistance with luggage, or concierge help when we arrived.. particularly for arranging cabs...eg: helping with a very poor cab that brought us from airport ( and almost drove off with our luggage)

    Nothing, Staff were rude and having to park in an open public car park was disgusting ..... I left a day early and happily lost the extra nights payment ...

    The location.

    Having to wait so long for the room to be available. Arriving in Sydney at 8 A.M. it is a long time to wait until 2p.M. to check in.

    The staff were fantastic!!!! I cannot emphasize this enough. It is the most important aspect of hotel accommodation that I require. It is this aspect that would encourage my repeat business. The room was very comfortable and clean. The rates were reasonable. The food was delicious and fresh.

    Nothing to report here.

    From the moment we booked in, to us it was luxury plus. Our room was magnificent. So spacious, fantastic view of the city and so clean and welcoming. I would thoroughly recommend it.

    Our only complaint was parking. When we finally found the entrance, we were told that the secure parking for guests were full and we had to park in the public carpark next door. That was fine, till we got out of the car and could not find the entrance into the hotel. We walked around and around pulling our luggage , very confused. Finally someone showed us where to go. There were no signs. This would not have been a problem if we were in the secure carpark.

    Superb

    Ideal location. Views are great from the window.

    1. Check-out took a while with a long line. 2. A little expensive. 3. $45 to park a vehicle is also expensive.

    Superb

    Fantastic place to stay.

    The concierge created problems on our arrival because the room was booked online and the credit card holder was not present. He (Jordan) was rude and unhelpful resulting in several calls to the Novotel. Fortunately... the staff from there on were more than helpful and both courteous and professional. Everything turned out lovely in the end.

    Very good

    Wonderful staff, comfortable bed, loved the black out blinds.

    Cramped basic rooms, cheap shower/bath set-up, the shower had poor pressure and lacked heat every time (not at "peak times") The towel rack is at the head of the bath and has a bench less than a meter below so you cannot hang your towel without it resting on the bench while you shower, so it can get wet.The room had a double bed but only one chair to sit at the desk/table. For the price of the room I expected a little more.

    It was very near to the Convention & Exhibition Centre

    the bed / mattress was terrible, not fit to be used for guests. it was old, with a hollow in the middle, which meant that we both rolled to the middle of the bed. it was narrow, more of a double bed than a queen. we requested that the mattress be changed, but the staff member was quite obnoxious and said that we would have to come back to the room, pack all our belongings and move rooms, they were not prepared to change the mattress over.

    Superb

    Room was well presented and very accommodating to the purpose that was required.

    Staff neglected to advise that your account will be debited the amount of your stay and "held in abeyance" until you pay your bill where they deduct another amount to cover your bill. As a result of this, I was unable to pay for services (petrol, food etc) whilst on my way home to Adelaide that day. I made contact with Novotel and was advised a manager will contact me back which I am still yet to receive a call back. Customer service of Novotel... There was minimal to none!
