this is my second Novotel in a week, and exactly the same review applies.
The room, the decor, the staff , the bar and reception area all perfectly OK.
The free WiFi poor, barely quick enough to web browse with and even hard work loading email and as others have commented expensive parking.
As i have said in other reports and will continue to ask, why are we charged for parking on site?surely the car park was laid with the hotel and to make around 1/4 of a million quid a year from it is wrong. Same as WiFi , the hotel is not charged per user, so why charge us ( accepted there is a free service albeit poor).
This is a mid range business chain, like Premier Inn, Holiday in Express etc, and as the others it has lost its way and become greedy. 110 a night is too much for B & B ( the breakfast was good tho). Did Lenny Henry get all of the cheap rooms ?
