I stayed in a novotel in York for my engagement so novotels are special to me, so when we were visiting London it was the first place I thought of.
The location of this novotel is brilliant, close to many attractions.
Our room was nice, with cool features such as frosted glass shower, Bose docking station etc, but this wasn't the room we had booked.
The first thing I did was look around to make sure everything was clean. There was a small blood mark on the duvet and no matress protector which i think is unhygienic. However I didn't want to cause a fuss, so decided to ignore it.
The next day however I was really disappointed. We went for breakfast which was nice, lots of choice everything tasty, but the room was noisy, not a nice calm Sunday morning.
When we returned to our rooms a maid was in there changing the sheets and towels. We still had 2hours til checkout. It was obvious that the bedding wasn't going to be changed again after we left, which I found concerning because we were still to shower and we were wanting to relax before heading out on the train. About 20mins later another maid came in the room, without knocking but then quickly turned around and left. We felt uncomfortable by then, and felt as if we were expected to leave, so checked out over an hour earlier than planned.
I was disappointed because it changed my opinion on novotels. If was to return I would probably go to the double tree over the road.
