Novatel Canberra is in a nice central position and rooms are reasonable. The pool was very nice and matches what was shown online - shame our timing and weather wasn't right to get to use it. Certainly a good option to stay at if you need a CBD Canberra position. Also close-ish to ANU if you need to be able to get there.

Convenient location, close to city centre buses and taxis (these are usually right out the front of the hotel) which make it really easy to get to and from places of interest (NGA, War Memorial etc.). Right next door to the bus depot if you catch the intercity express buses. Staff were nice enough and professional, upgraded us as our room wasn't ready when we checked in. Rooms are clean and spacious.
