My wife and I spent a night at the Novotel in December 2009. Initial impressions were favourable: a nice lobby area, plenty of lounge chairs and friendly counter staff.
The (standard) room was fairly small, but recently renovated in good taste. One small criticism: the bathroom ceiling badly needed paint to cover the stains. Other than that, a nice clean room and everything worked.
The Business Centre rebooked our ferry tickets with no fuss nor charge.
Had a nice lunch in the sunny restaurant - average food and a fairly long wait, but nice drinks and ambience.
We had a pre-dinner drink and were the only people in there (but it still took about 20 minutes to deliver one beer and one tomato juice).
Breakfast was back in the same restaurant and was a little manic - the Western food was very ordinary but the Soto Ayam (noodle soup) was supurb.
Pool area is a little odd: it's open air but undercover (if that makes any sense). Not as large as the promotional photos show.
All together, a nice, modern, clean hotel at a pretty reasonable price. I'd stay there again.
