swartists2022 09/01/2022 TripAdvisor review

We are always made to feel so welcome here, and any concerns are immediately dealt with. In these unsettled times it is understandable that breakfasts sometimes stand in their buffet trays too long, and the bar-service is not as prompt and efficient as it usually is. We had a problem with the heating in our room. It was sorted during our few hours' absence. Lovely place.

Hello swartists2022, Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate you taking the time out to do this. I am happy to hear that your problem was solved as soon as possible. we do our utmost best to create a warm and welcoming environment to all our guest. Your feedback will be passed on to all the departments. We hope to see you again in the near future. Kind regards and Happy New Year!

NAYOUL24 02/01/2022 TripAdvisor review

I regret I stayed at this hotel with my family. We chose it only because of the proximity to my brother’s house which is close by. I was disgusted but I had to put up with the 11 nights that we had paid already

Dear NAYOUL24, I am incredibly sorry for any and every discomfort that you may have experience during your stay with us. I can assure you that we do our utmost best to create a warm and welcoming environment to all our guest. I would like to speak to you more about your stay with us.

Grahammuz 01/12/2021 TripAdvisor review

I good two night stay, met all my expectations. Nice room with comfortable bed. handy to have car park but a charge per hour rather than per day or per night (even the hotel rate can be a surprise). Everything was clean and safe.

Dear Grahammuz, Thank you for your review of our stay with us. Thank you for taking the time to do so and we really appreciate it. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon.

I have been using the Accor Group for a very long time as it was the only very reliable hotel that I could bring my Labrador. She has now moved on but we continue favouring the hotels for its comfort and no fuss. This time we were in a room that did need an update but overall very happy.

Dear @ J7716YDangelab, Thank you for your review. Delighted that you chose to stay with us and pleased that you had a good stay. We look forward to welcoming you back again.

Great location for Apollo Theatre

Eyeforabargain 23/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Good advance communication of covid safety guidance. Friendly welcome and able to check in early. Clean room with all basic essentials but lighting poor. Good breakfast selection but quite busy in buffet area so avoid peak times.

Dear @ Eyeforabargain, Thank you for your review of your recent stay at Novotel London West. It is really pleasing that you enjoyed your time with us and we hope you also had a great time visiting the Apollo. We hope to welcome you back again soon.

shmoolley 09/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Everything about the Novotel London West was as expected and up to the usual great service that i have experienced with this brand until I requested 2 wine glasses for my room as there were none provided. I was informed that there would be a surcharge added to my room for someone to bring these up. What terrible service. This is a 4 star hotel?????

Dear @shmooley, Thank you for your feedback and for bringing this to our attention. It is not our policy to apply a surcharge if a guest of ours requests some glasses to be brought to their room so please accept our apologies that this is what you were advised. This will be reiterated to the team in general to ensure it does not happen again.

excellent customer service

rcstretch 07/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

The staff could not have been more helpful - questions I emailed in advance were answered promptly and all staff in the hotel were committed to making my stay an enjoyable and comfortable one. With very comfy beds I got a great night's sleep and breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of food. Great location for the eventim apollo and very close to hammersmith tube.

Dear @ rcstretch. Thank you very much for your review of your recent stay at Novotel London West. We are really delighted to hear that you had a great experience with us. We hope that you enjoyed your event at the Eventim Apollo and look forward to welcoming you back again in the not too distant future!

soniagill24 31/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

Our stay was pleasant and all staff very helpful but the rooms really do need an upgrade. Dirty carpets and cracked bathroom tiles as well as rooms being not particular clean. Room service just wasn’t available despite calling for over an hour

D6129NXdom Business - 20/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Asked to park outside of the car park due to vehicle size. Didn't have time to check in before an event we were attending. Came back to a broken in van and my bag stolen. Informed the hotel but other than what I was told was an upgraded room (not sure what the standard room would have been like), we had no further help or support. No one checked on the us, no one to help clean up all the smashed glass (all over the hotel property), no one asking if they could support, absolutely nothing, like it never happened. I assume they didnt apologise so they werent at fault but still, come on, a simple can we do anything to help! Very disappointed.

Dear D6129NXdom, Thank you for your feedback and it is really disappointing that you did not have a great experience on this occasion. Please be assured that we have investigated it further and whilst we were under the impression that we did offer assistance to help clean up after you car had been vandalised, we are sorry that you did not feel like we went the extra mile thereafter in ensuring that you were okay. Your review has been shared with the team to ensure that this is not the case again . We really do appreciate you sharing this with us and thank you again. We also hope that you got everything sorted with your car.

premaarifbasha 13/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

Bathroom is too small for heafty person . Oats should be added for breakfast and hot milk required . Water bottles should be guven daily . Or water machine should be there in walk way . Add more on the address .

Dear premaarifbasha, Thank you for your review. We really appreciate you taking the time to do so. We do provide water in the rooms and replenish them either on request or on serving the rooms but we will certainly look at how we can better communicate this to our guests. Thank you also for your feedback on our breakfast offering and it has been shared with our F&B team. We do hope that it won't be too long before we get the opportunity to welcome you back to Novotel London West and thank you again!

Namerof 09/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

My wife and I have stayed at the hotel on several occasions when we have been to the Wimbledon Tennis Championships. The proximity of the hotel to the Hammersmith tube station allows easy and speedy travel via the District line. From the same station there’s quick access into the heart of London via the Piccadilly line. We travel to the hotel by car via the M4 and find the hotel car-park a bonus and great value, too. The hotel staff are friendly and knowledgeable. We had breakfast on both mornings of our stay. There was a great selection of food and drinks - the bonus was the 2 kids were eligible for free breakfast. We ate in the hotel on the first night of our stay - from memory it was in the bar area as the restaurant was closed at the time. The boys loved their sofa bed and we all had a restful night’s sleep. We will return soon!

Dear Namerof, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. We really appreciate you taking the time to do so and are especially happy to hear that you and your family had a great time during your stay at the hotel. Delighted to also hear that you will be returning and we are looking forward to welcoming you back!

kenneth p 08/09/2021 TripAdvisor review

6 long black hairs on the bathroom floor. 1 in the bath. Shower squeaky and whole bathroom seen better days. Black on sealant and grout missing, you get the picture. 1 small towel per person. 1 shampoo and 1 body wash for 2 people!! We had to request more for the next night. 2 sunflower seeds in between window ledge obviously not cleaned for ages. Food barely warm and inferior ingredients. Total rip off.

Dear kenneth p, Thank you for your review and it is very disappointing to read that your stay did not go well with us. I would be happy to discuss it further with you if you would like to contact me directly on Thank you.

Kb Couples - 31/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Hotel is comfortable although it has a bit of an impersonal feel to it. Staff seemed a bit inexperienced but pleasant enough. I had an issue with the bacon at breakfast: it was cold and hard and had clearly been out for some time. I could not even cut it! I mentioned it to the waiter clearing our table but he just took my plate ! In the end I did not risk any if the cooked items.
