P R Solo travel - TripAdvisor review

I’ve stayed at a lot of hotels in Melbourne, all were far more expensive than Novotel but I feel this was the best. The room was modern and had an amazing view (1502) and that bed! So comfortable. Spacious bathroom also. The concierge George was so lovely and helpful and always greeted me with a smile and friendly disposition. Highly recommend if you’re heading to MCEC or DFO as they’re literally next door.

Nice and comfortable place to stay

This is a really good quality hotel in a nice part of Melbourne. We are Accor Plus members but this night was booked using Emirates points. Accor still gave us a a top floor room with a stunning view and the usual free drink vouchers, which I didn't expect since I didn't book with them. The room was clean with the aforementioned good view and had every thing you need for a short stay. Improvements would be a coffee machine instead of simply a kettle, and a better Chromecast as the one we had just wouldn't work. These are minor issues though. Lifts were very slow, as only one seemed to be operating. Breakfast was efficient and tasty, although the included coffee could be improved and the extra charge coffee was too cold to be enjoyable. All in all an excellent hotel to stay at if you need to stay in the South Wharf end of Melbourne, and we will certainly stay again.

The review is for the restaurant Mr Capriani , The worst restaurant in a Novotel ever. It is supposed to be an Italian restaurant. It was a tasteless meal. Not sure if they had a real Chef or someone pretending to be. We were still eating our entries when out came the mains. We had entries and mains ,all over in less than 30 minutes. That’s a Saturday night. It was not busy either. So just avoid this place.

Perfect for a night at The Plenary, the Lume or the Convention Centre

kozkan Couples - TripAdvisor review

Modern, clean, efficient hotel. Friendly staff. Warmly greeted and arrived in time for Happy Hour at the bar on Level 6. Enjoyed a glass of sparkling, a beer and shared the calamari with chorizo. Very nice! We were there to see The Piano Guys at the Plenary, so this was extremely convenient as it’s just next door. We had a King bed room with views of the city. The bed was very comfortable - felt like s nice, plush mattress topper. Pillow menu on offer if you wanted something different than what was on the bed. The bathroom has a good shower with shampoo and liquid shower gel, but no hair conditioner. Also, no lotion or shower caps that I saw. There is a kettle to make tea or instant coffee, but no coffee machine. I think there is a coffee in the foyer, but it wasn’t open when we were there. It appeared to have a cocktail bar there as well with displays of cocktail glasses, but I misread the sign when it said it was open between 8-11. I think it meant for the morning, but when we returned to the hotel after the concert at 10:30pm, I thought it meant you could get a cocktail. It also wasn’t open Saturday morning, so we ended up walking to The Boatbuilders Yard for coffee and breakfast - which was delicious! A very clean, comfortable place to stay in an area that’s easy to see the city from.

Thank you for your detailed review kozkan
