    Excellent during covid

    Excellent hotel and very COVID safe. This is amid range hotel so you get what you pay for, however breakfast was comparable to some of the 5* hotels I’ve stayed in. All run very smoothly and our safety never felt compromised

    Could not attend because of covid for a 2nd time. Booking moved from March 2020 to Nov 2020. Currently you are trying to move it to 2021.

    Shocking Executive Room Sprung A Leak

    Sadly very disappointing and do not waste money paying for an executive room as only difference to a standard room is a single robe and Nespreso machine! Restaurant was closed due to Covidand the Bar couldn’t cope with demand for seating. Breakfast was shocking and cancelled second day. Forced to queue for 1hr for an average buffet breakfast. Not enough kitchen staff and servers to cope efficiently. Our room also had a water leak in the ceiling which woke us up dripping on our heads and soaked the pillows! Also had to pay £10 per night to park our car. Friendly reception staff was the only good thing about this tired hotel and did what they could to help. Wished we had stayed at home.

    Avoid! Worst Novotel ever stayed at

    Worst Novotel I have ever stayed in. Terrible standard of cleaning - there was a beer can, cigarette filters , hair balls, and more in our room from previous guests . They did move us to a different room, but they were barely apologetic- you would think they would be mortified given the Covid promises that they make about cleanliness. Rooms are also very shabby and in desperate need of refurbishment. Premier Inn are much better at half the price .

  • 6.0.Good

    Basic hotel, no availability to use the leisure facilities, was sent an email to say it was closed, when booking in they said that wasn’t correct but there was no availability anyway! Half an hour for breakfast but you had to queue for 40mins before being served! I understand we are in a pandemic but the hotel needs to sort this issue out. There was a lot of unhappy guests. Had no tv channels, this was sorted promptly. Nice to have a mini fridge in the room with some bottled water.

    Ok hotel. Exe parking and couldn’t swim.

    Booked the hotel because of the swimming pool. When we got there, found out we had to pre book the pool. There was nowhere on the website to do this. We then got stung with a £10 parking fee at the hotel.
