We decided last minute to make a weekend city trip to Ghent and made a reservation over the phone. We were very excited to arrive to such a beautiful city, but when checking in the service was not friendly and rather cold to us. We had a room for 3 persons but the extra bed was not made and we only had one towel. Overall, Novotel was a great place in terms of setting off into the city, and of course the lazy Sunday check-out was very convenient...we just would've appreciated a kinder reception.

Lovely hotel, located right in the heart of Gent. The reception staff were lovely. The breakfast had something for everyone & was scrummy - kids especially liked the hot chocolate, the best they had had in Europe. The rooms were a good size & clean. The outdoor pool was also an added bonus especially as we had warm sunshine. We didn't get chance to use the gym/sauna but will do next time. We will definitely return. The hotel was lovely and Gent is a must see place - absolutely beautiful.

We decided to stay in the Novotel even though it was more expensive than a lot of others (£118 a night with breakfast) because we wanted to relax by the pool as the weather was really hot. I only have good things to say about it, the staff were friendly, the room was huge, wifi was free in public areas and in the room itself and the location is really good too. If I was being picky I'd say that the television was really really small and it would have been nice to have had a bath rather than just a shower. However, we really enjoyed our stay here.

This hotel is well located in the old town center. The reception team are professional and helpfull. The tram station is just a 5 minute walk. The breakfast is good. The room had a good space and well cleaned. Plenty of restaurants near by.

Room Tip: We stay in room 401. Good view to the castle.

So I stayed at the hotel quite by accident. I booked online to stay at a different hotel (the
Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof) and did something I've never done - booked the wrong dates by accident. That turned out to be a huge problem because they were totally sold out. Still the made time to call around to find a suitable alternative and found the only room left at Novotel. We were there for the final days of the summer Ghent Festival - something we didn't even know about when planning our stay.... but I digress - The Novotel was wonderful! The gentlman who checked us in at the front reception was just delightful and really helpful. He was quite amused that we didn't know about the Festival but then proceeded to give us all sorts of wonderful advice about how best to enjoy it.

Our room was great - a odd shape but perfectly suited for our needs. The location is fantastic - so easy to see all the major sites in a day if you only had one. We had a few but spent much of that time enjoying the festival.

Our only complain was the shower was really hard to figure out and then also flooded the floor (a problem we encouter at another hotel in Belgium). I'm not sure why they designed it so water hits the floor no matter what you do). Other than that everything was awesome!
