    Disappointed

    Hotel is definitely not 4 star standard. Bedrooms tired and separate bathroom and toilet ( without hand basin in very small toilet). Had to ask reception 3 times to make up sofa bed for my daughter - was finally done at 10pm! Unfortunately it would be hard to rate the standard of Novotel any higher than the Premier inn ( one right next door). Very disappointing as was supposed to be a little luxury treat to compensate for my daughter’s lockdown 18th Birthday!!

    Surprised that there was no bottled water in the fridge. Had a problem with the room safe and reception came to sort it out immediately.

    Novotel

    the room was comfortable and the TV was bid, although it didn't work at first but it got fixed fairly quickly. The onsite parking is small. Breakfast was great with lots of variety. The pool was small and mainly used by kids.

    Expected more from Novotel

    Extra single bed was very uncomfortable, main bed had a stain on the matress protector. Pool was too busy, despite having a booking system and camera’s children were in the hot tub and too many people in the pool at once. Breakfast was very good lots of choice and well presented. Staff were helpful.

    Car park failure

    Check in was very busy. No parking available at the hotel. When we booked it said the alternate parking was closer and would be at a reduced rate. The voucher they gave didn't work and we ended up paying full price

    OK not worth the money.

    We arrived at the hotel just after check in to be told we could not park in the hotel car park, we had to find an alternate ourselves which was not too far to walk. On arrival our room was ready and clean, however only provided 1 towel for family of 4, there was no bedding for the sofa bed. Staff rectified this after we went to the spa for a swim. The beds were comfortable, we had a corner room with large windows with nice news. The hotel is not really central, more of a 7/8 min walk to the centre. The breakfast was nice, always warm with a good selection, the juice station should be positioned elsewhere as you had to join the hot food que for a drink. The tables at breakfast were positioned too close to other tables which made it noisy and uncomfortable. The swimming pool was very small and cold, we booked 30 mins swim and often it was too busy with people who had over stayed their half hour, also unruley children with no supervision, at one point I got out of the pool walked to reception to inform of said children. The jacuzzi and steam room was nice. We often ran out of toilet roll and because the rooms were not cleaned during our 3 night stay I politely asked a cleaner for more and fresh towels and she was rude saying I had taken all her stuff. Over all the stay was OK, not worth the money.

    Would stay here again

    Comfortable, clean rooms and quiet despite central location. Fantastic breakfast and friendly staff. Pool area only small and could and changing rooms not the best but overall a good additional facility. Wi-fi is a bit slow in rooms but fine in communal areas.
