    2nd time staying here and it's really good for a base. They've had a recent refurb and spruced things up. Breakfast as usual is great. Will be staying here again.

    Disappointing check out experience

    Our great service at check in was marred by a phone call after checkout advising that we had paid the wrong amount and owed a further £30. The receptionist was quite rude and I had to send a copy of my confirmation from Hotels.com to prove I had paid the correct fee. We won’t be staying again if their staff act in that manner- she did finally admit the mistake but it was upsetting

    We were a bit disappointed with our stay, it did not meet our expectations of staying at a Novotel. The room was ok, 2 things though the toilet did not flush properly and we could hear properly people in the hallway (quite loud during the weekend) The breakfast had plenty of options which was good, but the hot food was too oily/greasy during the weekend, it was better on the Monday. The lobby/bar area is quite nice, just the waiters do not bother clearing your empty glasses/cups, and some food was left on the floor for quite some time.
