Nice convenient location, beds were super comfortable.Easy to access and great parking nearby.Only a 10minute walk to the city and Sth bank.Breakfast was included which was very fresh and delisted.Highly recommended

We had a fantastic time staying here. It was close to all the amenities and the hotel was great. Our room had city view and our kids loved looking out through the windows. They want to come again soon.

The room was beautifully appointed and enjoyed stunning view across the city. Staff were polite, professional and helpful. I was greeted with a warm smile every time I arrived and departed the hotel. Food was delicious! I highly recommend this hotel for any stays in Melbourne and especially so if you are attending events at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre.

Stayed for a weekend. Lovely hotel, nice comfortable rooms & staff that couldn't do enough for you. You walk out of here straight to the beautiful waterfront. With lovely views, great restaurants, pubs, Crown Casino and much more.... or you walk out of your hotel & go DFO shopping. Great centre & has a decent food court for when you just want a light meal.

Great hotel, great staff, great location - very friendly from concierge to reception to café to housekeeping - would happily stay at Novotel South Wharf any time - beds were very comfortable and rooms very clean - very happy

1) Location + Room: Very convenient. Booked Novotel South Wharf as it was near Crown Casino and DFO South Wharf. It was also walking distance to South Melbourne Market, Spotlight, Woolsworth in the same area. You can walk 15 minutess or take the tram to get to the CBD. The hotel is very new, the interior is beautiful, the beds were clean, and the view from the room was amazing :) 2) Service / Member Recognition Very polite and friendly staff. Was recognised as Accor (Gold) and given early check-in (8am), room upgrade, welcome amentiy (chocolate), welcome drinks and late check-out (1pm). Thank you so much! Clearly checked all the right boxes, it was hospitality done right! 3) Breakfast Tried the breakfast, the variety was not as extensive as hoped (only a small corner buffet actually). However, the staff made us eggs to our liking. All in all, it was an excellent stay, would definitely return!

Nothing was too much trouble for the Hotel Staff, they cared about their guests. The Hotel is central to cafes, events and entertainment, reducing the need for the reliability of a car. The daily refresh of the rooms, was completed early during the day, giving the feeling a new room each day.

Great Location, walk straight into the DFO for awesome shopping! Staff are very friendly, lobby and reception are very clean. Family friendly, rooms are clean and have great tea and coffee selections in room. Nice big shower and bathroom. Parking is in the DFO carpark, just get your ticket validated at reception on checkout, for discount overnight parking, super easy. Would stay here again, great location and value for money when travelling with kids.

We spent a day at DFO then drinks at the bar before our evening out. Then breakfast in the morning. Extremely helpful and polite staff in every area we visited. Very clean and everything you need. Will definitely stay again.

Good hotel in very central location, opposite DFO and Crown 5 mins walk away. Rooms good and staff really nice. Have to take 2 lifts to get to reception but that’s not a deal breaker - would stay again as location so good - lots of restaurants and bars along the river, 2 mins walk away
