In a word pleasantly surprised! Never stayed in one before but this particular Novotel was very pleasant. Nice decor, good sized room and very comfy bed. Didn't get to try the bar or restaurant. However... the sink must qualify for the most crazy useless sink ever! The water spout is set right back under a metal tube, hard to see...

Stayed for 2 nights with my husband and 2 year old to meet friends. When we arrived at 10pm, a very helpful member of staff gave my son 2 little toys to make him feel welcome. Then we asked for a sandwich at 10.30pm (as our son decided he was suddenly hungry) and were brought one quickly and given milk!...

I had a large room with a comfortable bed. The room had one standard sized window but the curtain spanned the whole wall which was a bit bizarre. The breakfast and staff were good also. Would stay again.
