Emergency only ( in case Novotel Hotels are closed)

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Anonymous Business - 12/12/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Tried to check in but my reservation wasn’t found in the system. (The following day I stayed at a Novotel Hotel which finally reopened and they could find my booking made on the same platform.) Time stopped in the 90s but style is not yet retro. There is no mains socket or USB port by the bed. Windows are single gazed but thankfully there is a huge radiator available with a thermostat on it so it heats up really quickly. It is a shame that when the floor to ceiling black out curtains are drawn it blocks all the heat from the radiator but at least it heats up the windows. The bathroom was a joke. I tried to find the hidden camera while tried to figure out how to use the toilet. It is positioned so close to the wall that one’s hip doesn’t fit into that space, not to mention one’s shoulders. Oh and the last thing. I asked for a quiet room. I got my room to be the second in the main corridor so everyone passed my door. Also had two neighbours.

Hotel pictures look nice but it’s very dated and not as nice when you arrive. I stayed two nights as training was at the venue and I have still got a parking ticket for one day as I left to go to Tesco and returned.

We stayed here for 10 days during a complicated house move (and covid) and found the staff to be unfaillingly helpful, friendly and attentive. The hotel was clean, rooms large and the pool was the perfect temperature. We also used the office rooms to work in several times and found the broadband to be excellent.

Thank you for letting us know you had a great stay it is most appreciated. Best Regards

I was lucky enough to be staying the day they started their breakfast service again. Of course I booked my slot! I happened to be the first customer they had since March and the only one that day. The F&B manager was very welcoming and chatty and the lovely lady who served me did a brilliant job. The new way of service was well thought out and delivered expertly!

J Y. Families - 11/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Stayed here for 2 night while visiting family in area. Room was as you would expect in this style of hotel. Soulless but clean and tidy. Receptionist on arrival was unfriendly and robotic. Failed to tell us various key bits of info: That rooms would be be serviced, (fair enough, in circumstances, but should be told). When we went to enquire after coming back to soggy towels and no fresh tea/coffee, told they we would have been told on check in and was on web site,. We were not told, and guess was in small print. More importantly we were not told, or asked to register our vehicle details, and have now have an aggressive parking ticket demand, for £100 for parking for one 2 hour slot, first evening. This is from a private parking company. As we parked throughout the weekend, cam only assume other charges may follow. We immediately phoned hotel, who queried why we had not registered car (we were not informed we needed to). The hotel have confirmed that they will arrange for charges to be cancelled, however we will be keeping a close eye, as the ‘parking ticket’ also indicated a ratchet in charges, if not paid quickly. Finally we used the pool, which was a treat, but again we were not told no towels would be provided so have to trail back through hotel to fetch from room (hence sogginess!). Luckily before we got in! Oh and on entering the pool have an encounter with 2 fellow swimmers (gym members) who told us we could not get in, as due to Covid restrictions pool could only take 4, and we would take over that no. As we had booked our slot, as had all the others present, we carried on. Possibly an admin error, but attitude of ‘members’ was we were ones who should surrender our slot. In the end we all swam on, until further folk, over the no, arrived, clearly having come through from the gym, Perhaps without a booking, and the 2 rather unwelcoming members got out. If the restriction is 4 this needs properly managed, and no elite status for ‘club members’ However we did enjoy our swim. Finally no breakfast available beyond ridiculously expensive breakfast in a bag‘. We went to Costa! This was all in contract to our previous nonintervention in a hotel, a chain, as well, though a smaller one, where services was excellent, and welcome fulsome. Clearly not the staff’s fault, probably low wages and uncertain contracts, but a big chain like this could do better. And treat is customers, as just that, customers, with choice. We will try the adjacent Hilton next time.
