Novotel Brisbane South Bank is set to launch on Monday 14 May after three years of planning and construction. Novotel Brisbane South Bank will be positioned on the southern banks of the Brisbane River, surrounded by 17 hectares of lush parklands, stunning city views and world class eateries including the property’s very own modern Australian restaurant Spice Central.

The 4.5 star hotel designed by architect NRA Co Lab will exude modernity with 238 rooms boasting open spaces and natural light. Each room will also take note from its cultural surroundings housing one of four iconic Brisbane images from South Bank Arbour to Kurilpa Bridge. Novotel Brisbane South Bank will include modern essentials such as 24 hour room service, Smart TVs with access to home channels like Netflix, free Fox movie channels, high-speed internet connections and Dyson hairdryers and Nespresso coffee machines in suites.

The hotel will also feature an outdoor heated swimming pool, state of the art gymnasium and an ultra-modern meeting and conferencing space with banqueting facilities for up to 100 people. A great place for business and leisure alike, General Manager Jean-Phillippe Lagarde says food and beverage will be a big focus for the hotel. “Novotel Brisbane South Bank will house two unique and exciting restaurants which will be available to guests and the general public,” said Jean-Phillippe. “A major feature will be our open kitchen, where all meals will be prepared live in front of guests: it will be show time all day.”

Within walking distance to South Bank’s cultural playground, Novotel Brisbane South Bank will boast a ground floor pathway connecting the hotel to the Brisbane Convention and Entertainment Centre. Guests will also be a stroll away from major hubs like South Bank Cultural Forecourt, Queensland Art Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Queensland Museum & Science Centre and Streets Beach.
