I have stayed at the Excel Novotel before as is close to my work place. However on this occasion trying to get extras authorised appeared difficult and made ordering a drink at the bar and express checkout difficult. Your colleagues advised on three occasions they had authorised and yet on each occasion it was found not to be .Hopefully its just a slower return to normal and that future experiences will be better. The suite was a lovely room and couldn't fault it in any way.

Dear Mark, Thank you so much for your review. I am glad you enjoy the location and wish to apologize for the troubles you've encountered with your extras. We are constantly training our team and they're doing their best to accommodate all the requests. As a teachable moment I would like to thank you for helping us address this. Look forward to seeing you again! Warm Regards, Aurelija Revuckaite Guest Service Manager

Great Location, Noise problem on last day

KarlD1234 Business - 06/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Stayed here many times and never had a problem. Usual high levels of Customer Service, helpful staff & great facilities. However on the last morning, someone decided to start very loud drilling in the next room at 0800 (after a particularly late night for me!) even drilling into the adjoining wall. Very inconsiderate behaviour, which was shrugged off at check out in a gallic shrug kind of way.

Hi KarlD1234, Thanks very much for writing. So glad you enjoyed it with but sad we missed out on the 5* due to the noise from the current works happening at the hotel. Please rest assured that we take all feedback very seriously and I wish to thank you for bringing this to our attention.

We checked in for two nights and had a wondeful stay. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Hotel and amenities were great the only downside was the renovation work taking place which commenced at 8.15am each day which was a shame but did not ruin our stay.

Overall decent stay

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Anonymous Families - 02/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Polite staff, decent sized room. No sink with toilet which wasn’t great. Breakfast was nice but no veg sausages available throughout our stay(4 nights) would be nice if there was some rotation of breakfast as for those staying longer can be repetitive. Overall though we had a good stay as only really used the room overnight and mornings. Was a really good price too compared to other hotels on the vicinity.
