“A good but expensive stopover hotel near Brisbane airport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2010

We were arriving at Brisbane airport in the early hours of the morning and so we needed a nearby hotel with 24 hour reception - this was expensive but at a 5 minute drive from the airport, just what we needed.
The hotel is new, clean and stylish. Reception, even at 2.30 in the morning was warm , welcoming and efficient. The rooms have very comfortable beds and all the extras you could need - iron, tea making facilities hairdrier, lovely bathrrom with nice toiletries etc.
Breakfast was not included in our deal and we thought it expensive, but 1 minutes walk away is a shopping centre with a nice cafe.
There is a gym and swimming pool on the roof, with towels available. Wifi/computer access has to be pad for.
Free parking in the open car park, or paid parking in the underground facility

Our family of four (kids 9 and 12) stayed one night here for $220.
The room was lovely - very nicely decorated and very plush. However, I felt the reception area and the rest of the hotel had a bit of a sterile, deserted feel.
It was a $20 ride from the domestic airport and $5 each for the shuttle in the morning (which the receptionist neglected to tell us was not free - really think it should be for the price you pay).
Due to our 7pm arrival, all nearby shops were shut and no takeway places are nearby. The restaurant is expensive for a family meal. Be prepared ! We opted for breakfast at the airport.
Was not impressed with only two towels in the room. If you are clearly booking for four people, then four towels should be in the room - it's annoying to have to chase this up after a tiring flight. In saying that, the towels were fabulous and great quality.
Not sure I would stay here again - it's convenient but expensive.

We stayed at the Novetel Brisbane airport Hotel and found the hotel to be very clean and new. We caught the free shuttle bus from the international airport to the DFO shopping centre and walked to the hotel which is in the same complex. We had no complaints about the hotel although it was quite expensive. We took the hotel shuttle back to the airport the next morning and paid $5 each - expensive for the 5 minute ride and we had stayed in hotels overseas that provided free shuttles any time of the day or night. I would definitely stay there again if I needed to be at the airport early in the morning.

My wife and I spent one night at the Novotel Brisbane Airport to attend an Eagles concert (fabulous by the way) at the nearby Brisbane Entertainment Centre. I must admit that at first I was a little worried by the hotel's close proximity to the busy Brisbane Airport but this was in fact a bonus. To deal with any sound intrusion the windows in the rooms are double glazed making making them wonderful sound-proof cocoons. We slept like babies that night.

All members of the hotel staff with whom we had contact were very friendly and efficient, espcially those on the conceirge desk who gave us great directions after our GPS packed it in.

A bonus to staying at this hotel is that a fabulous DFO complex, complete with numerous eateries, is literally right next door.

Can't speak highly enough of this hotel.
