Novotel London Blackfriars
Daughter's birthday break
We loved staying here. The staff was very accommodating and made my daughter feel very special. We enjoyed the sauna, pool and the restaurant. We had a balcony room with a good view of The Shard. The hotel is a 2 min walk from Southwark station. I would definitely recommend it!!

Super hotel
Excellent hotel- modern and clean. Great pool and rooms. We were given complimentary prosecco as it was my daughter’s 21st- lovely touch- she was thrilled! Super meal in the restaurant- the manager was very attentive and a great laugh- made our meal! Would definitely visit again .

Novotel London Blackfriars
A fantastic weekend stay in London.
I had an outstanding 3-night stay at Novotel Blackfriars. The staff were all very obliging and kind (e.g. early check-in, late check-out), and the location (which isn't so much Blackfriars as Southwark/ Waterloo) really put me at the heart of everything I wanted to do. I would always make Novotel my hotel chain of choice, finances permitting.
