The room where we stayed was extremely noisy and we could hear the banging of the other bedrooms' doors as well as people walking in the corridor.

Disappointed! On arrival having called the week before to book adjoining rooms and being told this was done...we were told that others had booked in the day before and were given them!! I questioned this to be told they were there first and my booking meant nothing!! Having 2 children under 2 with 2 couples hoping to have a night out each while the other babysat this was a nightmare! The curtains were splashed with food, how long it had been there I don't know. Had an evening meal on the first night, and when I went to pay the machines battery had ran out, so I was told. So I put it on my room which was paid for when we left! I have come home and checked my account, and it 'was' taken out on the night! Not only that I waited for the bar staff for approximately 20 minutes to be served....they were nowhere to be found! I certainly did not enjoy my stay.

I requested a high floor quiet room location but received a room on 2nd floor which was actually direcly over the function room as there is no 1st foor in this section with a full swing wedding taking place when i asked to be moved i was told if it gets noisey i would get a refund for that night and be moved for the 2nd night, i wasnt happy but nothing i could do about it, unless you get your request in writing in advance forget it, and i had paid for a superior room, it was overlooking the delivery entrance and kitchen court yard and car park not a happy family. Why put superior rooms in such a diabolical location?

A short stay. Staff and general facilities good and staff helpful. Room facilities getting a bit tired, and could do with a bit of a check over. Wouldn't like to keep anything that was open in the cooler! All in all, food good and breakfast excellent! Thank you.

This is an excellent hotel at which we have stayed before without any problems. The only reason I have criticised the service is because there was a mix up over whether we had prebooked B&B (which we had) or room only. Sadly, it took us several attempts to rectify and although the staff were pleasant and apologetic it became a bit of a chore and spoiled an otherwise pleasant stay.

Just back from a 2 night stay at Novotel with my husband and 2 children aged 9 and 1. We stayed in a double room with queen bed and pull out sofa bed and a travel cot was provided. Lovely room, albeit a little cramped, although perfectly adequate for a base to stay. Great facilities. Staff friendly and helpful. Food delicious - we ate out on the first night, but on the 2nd night ate from the menu - worth every penny - wished we had ate at hotel both nights. Breakfasts lovely too with loads of choice. Swimming pool lovely and clean. Location good - just five minute walk to city centre. All in all a great stay - would definitely return.
