We were booked into this hotel through work and didn't have much choice in the matter. I've stayed in Novotels before but it wassome years ago and I wasn't overly impressed then because they had been very basic and functional - but this one was such a lovely surprise! We arrived at 7am after a 26 hour flight to be told that our check-in wasn't until 2pm! However within 45 minutes our room was ready for us and we'd used the waiting time to have a really delicious breakfast in the restaurant. The room had two double beds and was fairly large with a reasonable bathroom and lovely views across to the gardens. We didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening but chose a small Italian place across the road which was ok.
We were only here for 1 night but the staff were freindly and helpful and everything was very comfortable so I'd really recommend it - it was certainly a welcome sight after a 26 hour flight!!More
