A good room in town center

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

heartqissa 22/10/2020 TripAdvisor review

A very professional approach from the staff regarding everything we needed. We had room service cocktails and we got the swimming pool as extra (we had been upgraded from our Ibis stay next door to this room). The room itself was big and modern with a large tv and a modern bathroom. The only complaint about the room was the cigarrette smoke present in the room (or coming from the aircon) which for a non smoker it can't be missed (hence why the sleep quality rating is lower rated by me).

Upgrade from Ibis next door without being prior warned No welcome drink Room grubby. Window area and wash hand basin not very clean Remote control faulty, but maybe just needed batteries

Dear Mr H., Thank you for taking the time to complete our online survey. Please accept my apologies for letting you down during your recent stay with us. Currently all guests booked in to ibis hotel get an upgrade to Novotel due to ibis still being closed. I am sorry that on this occasion we did not manage to provide a real 4-star experience. I am especially disappointed by missing your welcome drink voucher. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me directly on my email address below prior to your next stay and I will personally oversee that everything goes smoothly.

Great location, very clean, friendly staff. If I had to mention anything for improvement it would simply be the tea and coffee facilities in the room could be increased as there wasn’t really enough for two ppl for two nights.

It was my daughters birthday treat. In our room there was a ballon, chocolates and some orange for us and a lovely hand written card. She had a lovely time and we really appreciated the surprise. Hotel is literally across road from train station and very central. Ideal for shopping or a night out. Pool area was lovely. You have to book a slot so was very well organised. Reception staff were very friendly. Lovely bar area. Would definitely recommend and will be visiting again.

Dear K., Thank you so much for your kind words. We appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. We are really happy that you liked the surprise for your daughter's birthday, it is really a pleasure for us to look after our guests and we are super glad we made a memorable stay! We look forward to seeing you here again in the future.
