We are a family of four ( children aged 5 & 8) and after driving home from sydney and a most hideous morning dealing with traffic and a never ending list of issues were told we were unable to return home due to incomplete renovations! It was 430pm when we finally drove in to canberra and a quick search of the Internet I found the Novotel canberra offering a double bed room for $181 as appose to a suburban inn at $278. We arrived and were greeted most warmly by Renee. Check in was extremely quick (less than 5 minutes as we prepaid) and after hearing about our demise that day and that it was my birthday the following day Renee told us about the pool (for the kids to unwind) with a spa and sauna and gym for mum and dad. She also advised us breakfast was also included in the rate - nice surprise. We went to our room level 5, after about 15 minutes we received a knock on the door and in walked Matthew with champagne and a lovely hand written card from Renee wishing me a happy birthday! It was honestly the best thing that happened to me for the whole day. After a great swim with the kids - pool is lovely (shallow enough for my boys) and amenities are good with pool towels provided poolside.
Our room was a good size, the bathroom is well appointed but the best thing was the massive bath sheets and the great hair dryer (not one of those cheap nasty one that's attached to the wall). The beds are most, most comfortable, rooms are clean (carpets were a little stained in places but nothing bad, we stayed at worse in syd and it was more expensive).
What a wonderful find will highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Thank you so much Renee and Novotel Canberra for a very grateful family.
