Yet another stay for us at the Novotel in Leeds. Again we found it to be one of the most reasonably priced hotels in the city.
The staff were very friendly as always and the new look in the bar area really is very modern and eye catching. The room was a lot more modern and clean in it's design and the softly backlit headboard was definitely novel.
Breakfast - much cheaper if you pre-order online - was hot and plentiful. We have stayed in a fair few hotels of a similar reputation but so far I've got to say that the Novotel breakfast is the best of them. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and considering how downright rude some of the guests were to them I can only credit them for keeping their smiles and just getting on with it.
The only niggles I have are minor. The recent refurb has seen them go to the awful 'floating' toilets that their sister chain, Ibis, seem to prefer. Personally I dislike them and I would rather have a more sturdy looking fitting to frequent! When we had one complaint about some rather noisy guests above us who appeared to be playing leap frog after midnight we were assured that it would be checked out and the noise stopped shortly after. Finally I'd say that the air-con was struggling a little in the hot weather so take a fan with you if you want a cool room.
I'd have no qualms in recommending this hotel to anyone travelling to Leeds and we'll definitely book there next time we visit.
