As a regular visitor(now the borders are open), I appreciate how welcome we are always made to feel, even as we walk through the door and see Michael smiling away welcoming us back.

Centrally located

Adrian Business - 18/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Nice hotel and close to everything. Comfortable room and good shower. It can be a little noisy at night due to Cavill Ave and wave, but that’s all part of surfers paradise.

Great location

Sophie Families - 17/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Booked for family of 5. Arrived in our rooms to find not enough beds. Very disappointing after we’d travelled 12 hours to get there. Not enough towels either. Said we had a superior room with bath but no bath in our room just a leaking shower.

Helpful staff

Frank C. Families - 14/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Everything was fantastic. Just a warning to anyone booking the penthouse room 3601 very rundown, well warn, more things don't work than do. Roof top spa has been poorly repaired and sharp tiles can easy cut you( My sons was injured night 1). But on the plus side very spacious/views amazing, if money is spent on it could be something very special.

David Families - 11/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is well located, has amazing views, the staff were exceptional but, the family room bathroom is smaller than most ensuites, trying to bathe children after pool and beach excursions was a nightmare, with so much space available, why did you build the bathroom like that?

Nice staff good location but dark and not enough light, aged needs a face lift. Surfers is a bit grubby as an area also.

Dgk23 10/01/2022 TripAdvisor review

Stayed in one of the family rooms on level 10, great ocean view, large room with separate kids sleep area. Amazing staff, front desk, concierge,restaurant. What lets it all down, is the smallest bathroom I have ever had in a hotel. To bathe my daughter, I had to have the door closed and crouch between the bath and toilet, there is no ventilation either. The bathroom would have measured 2m x 1.5m too small for a family room. Given the constant trips to the beach and pool, this bathroom fell well short of our needs

Dear all Novotel team Good afternoon I will try to be precise and mention few points ( both the good and the bad ones ), which I hope to be helpful: - Location - amazing - staff - really nice, mainly reception (helpful, friendly ) - Food - good variety, but I think you can extend your menu and definitely you miss some items mainly CHEESE and Chocolate - Cleanness - generally good, however the room service ( bed linen and cleaning room floors and toilet ) were NOT up to the level of expectation, and Not at the level Novotel should be!

Well-located, Great stay

pascalg20102022 05/01/2022 TripAdvisor review

I paid for 2 night of parking, then the last day, i wasnt able to found the ticket they gave to me, so they told me to buy another one for 18$ to get my car out because it is not managed by the hotel, I understand in a way, so i ask i will return the card because i just needed it to take my car out , i returned the parking ticket that can be used by anyone again but still get charged by the staff Annie, so no understanding and she didnt even want to listen or show any compassion or understanding... being a silver in that hotel or even just a customer...i am not happy also the room, i booked for a bed for 3 person, i got a king size bed.......

Dear pascolg20102022, Thank you for taking the time to write a Trip Advisor post in regarding your recent stay with us I am sorry to read that your stay was not a smooth one. I am very sorry that you misplaced your car park ticket and therefore had issues in retrieving your car from the car park. As you rightly observe the Hotel does not operate the car park and as such does not have the facility to provide a ticket for our guests to retrieve their car, unfortunately the only the option to purchase another ticket to talk directly to the car park operator Secure Park. I am sorry that you felt that your were not shown empathy or compassion on this occasion and I will discuss your comments with the Front Office Manager. I am sorry if the room type allocated to you was not the one that you had booked, Reception is manned 24 hours a day and we are always happy to assist our guests with room enquiries and also room moves if the room was not to their liking or requirements. Thank you again for taking the time to provide feedback pascalg20102022 and my Team and I do hope that we are able to welcome you to the Hotel in the future when we can restore your faith in Novotel Surfers Paradise, Best Regards, Paul Morton General Manager Novotel Surfers Paradise
