Stayed for two nights. Liked the location - very convenient for getting into the town but set off the main road helping to keep traffic noise down. Hotel is modern and more of a 3.5 star than 3 star. Room was a good size, clean with fresh decor and had all the facilities needed and expected with a Novotel, including a great powerful shower. Only small complaint about the room was that it was a bit stuffy and as I like complete quiet at night I had to have the window shut overnight to block out any otherwise inevitable city road noise. The main thing I didn't like about the hotel was the swimming pool facilitiies or more precisely lack of. I have stayed in a Novotel before so had a fair idea what to expect (no private showers or toilets within the changing rooms) but this Novotel pool doesn't even have changing rooms! Just a couple of cubicles directly at the poolside with no showers at all, no toilets and no lockers. It basically is just a room with a swimming pool in it. I think they could do slightly better at relatively low cost considering the standard the hotel generally reaches elsewhere. On the whole, I enjoyed my stay and would stay again, especially if I could get a good rate again. The weaknesses, whilst annoying/inconvenient, can be worked around.
