I arrived at this hotel with my fiance and our three children (ages 5-13), to find a light airy and modern lobby.
Reception staff were polite, friendly, and helpful.
Also situated in the lobby was a Xbox 360 live, which entertained the kids as we checked in!!
The hotel is situated close to the shopping centre, a Mcdonalds, and TGI Fridays are situated within a short walking distance from the hotel.
We had two standard rooms with an interconnecting door, the rooms were clean, bright and had a good array of complimentary shower gels, shampoo etc.
Tea and coffe were provided, with a good selection of beverages.
The children felt the matresses on the sofa beds were very comfortable any they enjoyed a good nights sleep.
The breakfast was buffet style and very well presented in a clean and bright dining area, staff were helpful and the food was excellent.
The large car park is situated outside the hotel and on checking with reception staff found that the charge is £5 a day for hotel residents.
As a family we used the spa, the swimming pool was warm, though smaller than appears on Novotel website, the gym is situated overlooking the swimming pool and had limited cardiovascular machines - one of each bike, cross trainer etc, though there was a good selection of free weights.
If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, family stay close to the centre of Southampton this is definitely worth a look.
