Travel Blogs from Brisbane
We flew from Brisbane into Prospapine airport and then travelled the 30 Km journey to Airlie Beach, yesterday since when we have been enjoying the opportunity to chill out. The weather is hotter than hell and very, very humid, but the girls have been making fulll use of the lagoon which is only a few steps from our door. The accommodation is good …
We will be adding to this later today, but for now the pics will have to do x
Our trip to Brisbane started off in the best possible way....with free stuff! We arrived at the airport, tried to make ourselves look a bit posh and then trotted over to the business lounge (a good perk of having a business boy husband). We handed our tickets …
It was early evening when we arrived into Brisbane (as the time went back a couple of hours on this flight) and after a short taxi ride we checked into the Novotel (selected for its proximity to the airport). After a really good steak in the hotel restaurant, it was time for an early night, remembering to set the alarm to go and meet Uncle Stew at …

TravelPod Member ReviewsNovotel Brisbane
We arrived mid afternoon wondering what we would find to do with the two girls. No worries. There was a great swimming pool, sauna and jaccuzi on the top floor. And we had dinner in the restaurant. The prices were very reasonable and the quality was excellent. Also the rooms were 5* quality. Couldn't fault it.

Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Brisbane
Would never stay at this hotel again
Stayed one night at the Novotel Brisbane. Light, bright and spacious lobby with many comfortable seating areas. However once you left the lift you were faced with a dark, dirty, dusty corridor with missing ceiling panels. The hotel room was also dusty and dirty and my son had stained sheets on his bed. The bathroom was small and dank with a uninviting shower and bath.
The restaurant staff at breakfast were all aged approx 18 -20 years and appeared more interested in chatting to each other than greeting customers - tables took ages to be cleared.
The only positive was a staff reception member called Bridie who was very helpful changing travellers cheques for me from her reception till.
I would never stay at this hotel again.
Novotel - comfy, clean and efficient
I stayed for 3 nights at the Novotel in Brisbane. The rooms are clean, bright and modern. Nice bathrooms with good toiletries, and a big bonus for me: feather pillows which don't feel like a rolled timber log! The bed was very comfy. The staff were friendly and efficient. A very good place for a business travel.
Novotel has a very corporate feel and the majority of guests seemed to be on business trips. That said it had a nice feel to it,with clean large rooms, and friendly service and staff.
Overall it is a decent place to stay, however if you have any disablilities then you might find the location a bit difficult as it is situated at the top of a large hill. They have a nice bar located on the ground floor, and the restaraunt is excellent. I had on of the best meals there and it was not that expensive. For what you will pay to stay there it seems to be just about right.
Weekends are good for tourists
We often stay at the Novotel in brisbane on weekends when i have no business to attend to. I find that this is often the best time, there are allways majorly discounted rooms available on line, especially on the weekends. The hotel is much quieter then and we find that the staff have more time to help you. and are often more friendly to touists on the weekends. We stayed there on friday night and the staff were very friendly and provided me with "complimentary" things for my boy aged 4, and even for my wife. The hotel has had a refit since we last stayed there and looks great. At the right price it is worth a serious look at for non business travellers.
Nicely renovated rooms. Ceramic tile bathroom with bath/shower combined and shower curtain. Aquascience toiletries in bathroom.
Nice with a Corporate Feel
Nice rooms with reasonable service. Has quite a corporate feel with a lot of business guests.
Super hotel !!
Stayed here in November 2003 during the Rugby World Cup in fact Welsh team were staying there and French team had been the week before - gives you an idea of the standard of the hotel. Basically, cant be faulted, great rooms, great location - well worth a stay !
This is a great Novotel. Got a great deal - A$125 per night, and it was worth it. Room was extremely comfortable and clean. In-room internet service worked with no hassles (unlike some other hotels...) Will definitely return.
Modern rooms, Great facilities
I stayed here for 3 nights in June 2004 with my wife. Hotel is in a good location- 10 minutes from main shopping centre, 5 minutes from central railway station. The rooms are very modern and were clean and tidy, they have all the usual fittings. The hotel has a good pool and gym. The hotel bar is relaxing, and in the lobby there are a couple of computer terminals where you have free access to the web! Would definately stay here again.
Great foyer, big rooms , clean. Fabulous buffet breakfast. Paid summer special of $140AUD/night. Wouldn't pay much more. Close to main railway station and attractions. Would come back.
