Graham M. Couples - 18/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Good stay. My only complaint is the condition of the towels. A child would struggle to dry themselves with those. They are way too small. Also to touch them you would feel that they were made of stone. I stay in hotels on a regular basis and it would be safe to say that these towels are the worst by far.

Dear Graham M., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Novotel London Blackfriars. I was happy to read that you had a good stay in our hotel. I am also sorry to hear that our towels, did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. At Novotel, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. We will look into it, for a better improvement. Do not hesitate to send me a direct email, if you are planning to come back in our hotel. I appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Traore Babaye - Guest Services Manager.

Excellent Service + Above and Beyond Expectations

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Chelle Business - 17/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Lovely location - really a great neighborhood central to everything. I arrived VERY early from the USA and my room wasn't ready. After decamping in the adjoining bar they made a room ready for me in under an hour. Very much appreciated. The room was clean and comfortable. Restocked with water and biscuits each day. Room service was prompt and tasty. Reasonable prices, too. The one dinner we had at the adjoining restaurant was very disappointing. The Nachos were a microwaved mess of weird cheese that held the chips in a vice grip. We saw another table send theirs back. We simply didn't eat them and carried on with the fish and chips which were good.

This was my second stay at this Novotel. An excellent room, comfortable and quiet, a very modern bathroom with an excellent shower, a good bed that gave me a very good night of sleep. I really enjoyed the breakfast with a wide choice and quality food. My stay was not the cheapest I could have found, but, all things considered, I believe this to be very high value for money.

Stayed for a single night whilst in London for shows, on leisure. Would absolutely stay again, the staff were great and us arriving slightly earlier than most hotels would allow you to check in wasn't even addressed. We were straight up to our room which was clean and tidy.

Danielle M. Business - 14/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Executive room was clean and tidy however staff at checkout APART from Emma were very uninformed and unfriendly. Breakfast was ok. I left at 11am one morning to return at 4pm to do work in my room and it still was not cleaned- this is not acceptable. The leisure facilities were a disgrace- filthy and cold locker/ shower room. Sauna was freezing. Pool was freezing and jacuzzi was freezing. The only reason I didn’t given less than 5 score was because the room was nice and the breakfast was ok.

Enjoyed the room and my time as it was just me and my wife however we would have enjoyed ourselves anywhere.. disappointed with the pool... chose this hotel for the pool facilities however they were ice cold and quite unpleasant so didn’t use them for longer than 10/15 minutes.

Nice room with space and a big bed. The Novotel is well placed for walking to venues on the Thames, so it doesnt need expensive cab journeys. What i dont like is the fact there is no door between toilet and bathroom.!
