If you are booking a Novotel you generally know what you are getting. This one is situated just outside the city walls and is 10 min walk into the centre. It's very easy to find off the main road into the city, down a residential street. It has its own private outdoor car park, which is £12 per 24 hrs.. You don't need to book it. There is a Q park 5-7 mins walk away which may be cheaper. It has a swimming pool, the entrance to which is by reception, but once in there are changing rooms so you don't need to walk thro the hotel in your cozzies! Quite small pool but ok for a breif up and down. Breakfast is the usual Novotel buffet with all possible tastes taken care of. I think it's cheaper if you book on line when you book a room.What marked this hotel out and the reason I gave 5 stars and not 4 is the staff. I have to say everyone was very friendly, chatty but professional and very helpful: especially reception and the guy behind the bar (possibly French). It makes a real difference to what is a large chain. If you are visting the University it's a 10-15 min walk. Would certainly use again.
