I'll start with the few negatives and end with the positives as our stay was above average but not quite "very good". Firstly we had to wait for our room to be ready when we arrived after a long drive. The room should have been ready from 15:00 but we had to wait until 15:45. Not the end of the world but annoying. However, my biggest bone of contention was with the air con which was woefully inadequate. We were at the far end of the building so I'm not sure if that had something to do with it but the air con was worse than useless leaving the room very hot and stuffy. Fortunately we overlooked a quiet part of the hotel and left the window wide open all night so that made things far more pleasant. The last "niggle" was the bathroom which was very odd. Normally with Novotels, the bathroom door is on the left or right when entering the room. This makes for a decent sized bathroom but normally means that to have a shower, you need to stand in the bath which has a shower screen. This Novotel has the bathroom door open into the room itself which means the bathroom doors hit the bed when you open them. The reason for this, I think, is so that bathroom can have a proper standup shower cubicle as well as a bath. This, however, makes the bathroom feel cramped and not particularly private (the doors do have frosted glass so don't panic). You also have to squeeze between the bed and the wall to get into the bathroom which can become annoying. As I say, just a niggle and a personal preference as there will be people who prefer this layout.
On the positive side, the staff were friendly and helpful both at the front desk and in the breakfast area. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. The pool was a decent size for us to have a swim and for the kids to burn off some energy. The hotel is in a good location, especially for us as we chose to eat in the area around the hotel rather than go into the old town. There is a HIT supermarket a few minutes walk to stock up on a few essentials. It is also only a few minutes from the transport links. On the whole, I would recommend staying at this hotel.
