Dreamer04494403889 TripAdvisor review

In this trip I traveled with my father. What appealed to me is staff behavior. Each and every staff was attentive with a smile. They took care of our needs very well. Will name few examples, changing my room as I did not like the one offered to me for the view which was my priority and cleanliness(one can't expect a bindi stuck on wooden panel at Novotel atleast.) The housekeeping guy named Ganesh always took care of us with a smile. I would also mention the Square staff were awesome including chef for providing just the kind of food I needed for my elderly father. I would like to stay at this property again.

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for choosing Novotel Visakhapatnam Varun Beach during your recent visit to the city. We are delighted to note that you have enjoyed our hotel facilities and services and especially the services during the season. I will surely share you appreciation with Mr. Ganesh. Thank you very much for all your compliments. However, we have also taken a note of your feedback with regards to the room change due to not being clean. We will certainly look into the same for the improvement. We look forward to welcome you with your family and friends to your hotel Novotel Visakhapatnam Varun Beach!!! Warm Regards Ravi Rai General Manager

Even if I describe the problem faced in your hotel, you will not do anything for improving services. Better next time I will prefer Taj.

Passenger16932083391 TripAdvisor review

Very worst staff management. 1st of all they overcharged on my card and unable to refund the balance amount during check out. 2nd we ordered coffee in room and after waiting for 45mins got to know the order is not placed. During check out staffs took almost hour for billing. Treat your staff how to be proffessional. Also as a Accor member i didnt get any benefits.

Tired and needs a revamp

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Jenna Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

I have been staying with you annually for the last 5 years. It was good the first few times, but the standard has really dropped. Rooms are tired and cleaning standards have not been maintained. Terrible 'damp' smell in my room. Checkin process was pretty chaotic. The staff in the buffet area are friendly and helpful though, they were the one good thing about the visit. However, I will likely stay at a different hotel on my next trip.

Bathroom always had a lingering urinal smell even after it has been cleaned. Food service at the restaurant is extremely slow. This was on two occasions. Unless you have plenty time here- don’t bother dining here.

Anish Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE !! We had booked 7 rooms, among that 3 rooms were early check-in, in-spite of 2 days prior notice, they made us to wait for nearly 3 hours and that dint end there even the next 3 guest faced the same issue as they reached hotel by 3:30, as per the check-in policy you claim check-in is at 3:00, what you served us is your business loss. Food and Restaurant: Not at all happy with restaurant food nor their services, To talk about the Buffet managers they were unmannerly behaved. No still dint end, we were made to call the restaurant back to back after 11:30pm, none had curtesy to let all of know restaurant is closed. Front desk people were forwarding the calls but none were answering. Honestly we were planning for more business and client stay for upcoming events in NOVOTEL for your breathtaking ocean view, however you all screwed it up big time. Please don't call yourself a 5 Star property. We will look for a better property close by.

Happy with housekeeping and service , but food quality wasn’t up-to the mark. Wait period for the food orders is way too long. Room for improvement in this category is required . Satisfactory in other areas

Services on request was very very slow. Also noticed many staffs lacking experience or are new like trainee but few staff were very good. The main problem was with F&O side. And food was very good.
