Reviewed 30 August 2013

We arrived in Rotterdam after a long journey by road from the UK. The staff could not have been more welcoming,as the hotel is out of the way we ate in the hotel restaurant which was fairly average but hit the spot, € 17 for a pizza and pasta eat as much as you like buffet. The rooms were spotless with everything you would expect from a chain of hotels,tv tea and coffee making facilities fridge , plenty of spare towels pillows etc,bathroom was spotless and a very comfy bed. We received our alarm call on time both mornings without any problems.the breakfast was advertised as continental but there was a huge choice of croissants, cereals,fresh fruit and fresh fruit smoothies,also cooked breakfast was available and an unlimited supply of fresh coffee. All the staff spoke English and were very pleasant and helpful. The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool and some very pleasant gardens with a terrace to sit out on very nice on a hot summer evening. As a stop off hotel it was very nice and I would visit again.

Rotterdam. Great city. How had I missed this as a weekend destination? What fantastic architecture! Main shopping areas is something of a thrown back to the sixties (not good) but away from that it is great. Buildings hanging out at the top. Boxes on their sides. Very unusual.

But what can I say about the hotel. A standard Novotel in almost everyway. Good outdoor pool. Breakfast good but limited (not a problem). The only issue is that they have no lunch service on at the weekends. While waiting to go to the airport on the Sunday no food at lunch and no indication they wouldn’t be serving. No signes at all. No sandwiches in their funky lobby bar. No take-aways able to deliver before 2pm. Poor. I understand that with falling attendance at weekends you may have to reduce what’s on offer, but to remove most staff and have not kitchen facilities is mad. The bar was still available. A hotel on the way out? Get your priorities right. Or maybe lose a star?

Room Tip: by a motorway so limited choice

Standard out of town business hotel on the Rotterdam ring road with great access to the main ports and all other locations. It is also only a short walk to the tram stop with easy access to downtown Rotterdam changing at Schiedam Centrum to the Metro and €3 for a 1 hr ticket.

The staff are all exceptionally helpful and friendly and the bar always has a good atmosphere. The restaurant, while a limited menu, the quality of the food is excellent.

The rooms are standard for this type of hotel - clean and well maintained with a kettle to make tea & coffee. Great rain shower and really like the smell of the shower gel.

I have stayed several times at this hotel and will stay again when on business in Rotterdam.

Nice hotel, very friendly staff but food is a little bit stale , but overall this would be a hotel I would go back to The only downside about this hotel is the food breakfast is not value for the cost and the dinner menu is the same for all of the summer and only changes for the winter surely they could do some thing more with the food ?

Standard suburban Novotel in pleasant extensive garden surroundings including a pool. Access by car would be fine but more directions needed for those arriving by train as there is no map or taxi rank at the station. Inside the hotel comes up to usual Novotel expectations without any problems but we were impressed by the high quality of the food at dinner.

This a a typical Accor hotel. The lobby is spacious. The reception area is pleasant and the staff are very welcoming and helpful. The restaurant is quite spacious but somewhat like a canteen and the noise from the open plan bar doesn't help the lack of restuarant ambience. Also the seating is very uncomfortable.
The room is spacious and well equipped. The ensuite was fine too.
The small fitness room was enjoyable to use.
Breakfast was good both mornings.
Overall the main selling point of this hotel is its staff.
