“Very good over night stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Stayed one night at their standard room.
Great location with decent typical Novotel room setting.
Mattress is comfortable.
Staff is helpful and friendly.
Rooms facing the back are quieter than the ones facing the road.
Happy with my stay.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Stayed in June, the rooms were good although the design was a little strange having another lounge beyond the bathroom. Good central location and easy to find different venues from here. The food at dinner was just okay and just passable. The food at breakfast was fine with many options.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Well located near the centre of the main areas of shops and restaurants. Clean throughout, excellent front-desk staff making checking in and out very easy. Bed was very comfortable. Odd separation of the shower/toilet from the washing basin across the entrance corridor. The basin appears to double as a kitchen sink for water for the kettle - which is stored in the clothes hanging cupboard. But it works.
Good swimming pool area - the pool is heated.
Heating system worked well.
The (minor) thing that needs some attention is the TV - picture quality is quite poor, and the screen does not swivel to allow it to be seen from more angles, it's not very responsive to the remote control, and the picture aspect ratio is wrong and can't be changed.

Room Tip: I think I had an westwards facing room, which had a nice view of the setting sun.

Excellent location - close to the main shops and restaurants. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast had a big variety. Restaurant meals were nice and quite big. I was upgraded to a bigger room with a king-size bed, which was a pleasant surprise. The only note I'd make is that housekeeping staff should pay more attention to glasses and cups cleanliness in the room. Al in all - pleasant stay. Would come back again!
