Anonymous Couples - 22/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Despite having pre registered we had a long wait to get our keys although only one French couple were in front of us. (One issue was that the member of reception staff wasn’t listening to them very well…I could have booked them in quicker) The room was very good, but housekeeping was hit and miss…what they did was well done, but they didn’t do all they should have. The pool and sauna were good. Food was ok. Breakfast would have been better if food not cooked in such quantities so early meaning rubber eggs, luke warm bacon etc. Had pre authorised credit card…e mail invoice had wrong bill (as had not credited reward points) so additional hassle in sorting that out was annoying.

The front desk were very welcoming and we were able to check in early. The rooms are great, we’re stayed here twice and we love the space, beautiful bathrooms and comfy beds. When you have a view over London it’s amazing. It’s an easy walk to the Thames and all the sights of central London. The hotel bar is also great, with its own vibe and not at all ‘corporate’. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Great Location but Low Quality Breakfast

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Gabriella M. Families - 17/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The location was ideal for what we needed, however the housekeeping didn’t make our bedroom on our first full day there. I had to remind reception to send someone over at 4.30pm on the Saturday. When returned to the room in the evening, the room was tidy but not tip top as we woud have expected. On the sencond day, Sunday, I had to remind reception again to someone up after we had left. Breakfast was poor. The coffee…of that precious morning coffee..ruined by the sutomatic coffee machine that would didpense milk foam and then a drip of coffee to make it an undrinkable cappuccino. The food itself was ok but very basic..we did not enjoy breakfast. The service was good, so was the view ftom our room. Thank you

sibbo10 09/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

We stayed one night in this hotel in November 2021. We had booked a balcony room and it was fantastic. Our room/balcony was directly opposite the Shard and other major London landmarks could be seen. The room was fairly spacious and well appointed. Nespresso coffee machine and tea making facilities. The bed was very comfortable. Importantly the room was very clean. Hand sanitisers were dotted around the hotel. Our package included breakfast which was very good. You could choose full English style or continental. The choice was yours. We arrived back at the hotel after the bar had closed (11pm) but managed to get room service very quickly. Check in was very fast most having been done online. Staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Would definitely use this hotel again on our next trip into London. The hotel is less than a 3 minute walk from Southwark underground station Thank you Novotel Blackfriars for a lovely stay.

Dear sibbo10, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at the Novotel London Blackfriars and thank you for the 5 star rating. Thank you for your comments on our staff and service and the comfort of your room, this is an area we are very truly proud of. We do hope to welcoming you back soon to London. With Kind Regards

JolyonTuck 03/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

This is hotel that I return to time and again. I’ve stayed as a couple and I’ve stayed here alone and I cannot speak highly enough of the place. The check in and check out are the easiest I have known. The burgers served in the bar are beautiful. The pool facilities are easy to use and a pleasure to visit. The location is central for everything I need, it’s an easy walk to London Bridge or along the South Bank to the heart of theatreland. I was a particular idiot on this trip, forgetting a phone charger, but the reception staff were happy to point out a local shop where I was able to literally recharge my battery! The rooms are clean, the bed offers a perfect night of sleep and the shower is marvellous. Whether location, staff or facilities, this place ticks all the boxes for me.

Dear JolyonTuck, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at the Novotel London Blackfriars and thank you for the 5 star rating.
