First of all - the good: free wifi and macs in foyer; bar and restaurant food; service in the bar and restaurant (especially the Chinese lady in the restaurant); front desk staff (accommodating and helpful); plenty of safe parking; clean and welcoming leisure complex.
The mediocre - Novotel basic rooms in the 'new' wing (functional, but straight out of a child's bedroom in a well-known Scandinavian warehouse).
Finally the bad - breakfast. Very average for a 4 star hotel, and please take a look at the carpet, chairs and tables and the general decor of this room. It felt 'dirty and sticky'. This hotel is consistently busy - surely paying guests deserve a better breakfast experience than this. If we hadn't pre-paid for breakfast, I would have walked down to Cote Brasserie in the Bay - now that's how to do breakfast for £10.
