    Very good

    Rooms were fairly clean and tidy as also the equipment provided. The staff were friendly too.

    The most annoying part was the wash basin/sink which seemed clogged all the time. Reported this to the staff and even after it was attended he problem was there and a hotel under this classification just cannot have something like this constantly happening in the bathrooms. Secondly, the computer screens placed in the lobby were never working with a paper pasted on them that they were out of order. This during my long stay showed very clearly that the management was not very ethical in its business practices as they were forcing guest to opt for the room WiFi services at a charge. I am surely annoyed by this unethical approach to its customers and am not going to suggest this hotel o anyone booking a regular room as this basic service these days is missing from this class of a hotel!!! I hope they work on counting Pounds and not Pennies and putting their customers at such a discomfort that too after providing the computer terminals in the lobby. I will also like to see better cleanliness of their toilets and rooms upkeep by housekeeping and maintenance departments.

    extremely quite and perfect location

    the staff at the desk is useless, although very polite. the air conditioning was non existent despite three separate complaints to the desk. the room was very warm throughout our week long stay. the charge for internet service was also absurd...

  • 9.2
    Superb

    The location was excellent. Just a short walk across the bridge to find a tube or along the river to London Bridge. Lots of things of interest to do close to the hotel.

    We were surprised that the second bed was a sofa bed. Nothing on room description indicated that this was the case.

    Fabulous

    Very comfortable and clean hotel with all amenities you would expect. Was amazed at how quiet the room was staying in central London. Easy to walk to from London Bridge with pleasant staff and easy check-in and out process. Would definitely stay again.

    Exclusive

    The room is not overly large but more than adequate and is very well equiped with iron, hairdryer, and facilities to make drinks. We like the fact that the toilet is separate from the bathroom, which again is well equipped. They also do an excellent breakfast where you can eat as much as you like and there is plenty of choice.

    We live in the country where there is no noise at night therefore I found my requested 'quiet' room quite noisey with endless traffic and sirens most of the night. Next time I will request a room overlooking the car park as it seems to be quieter (according to friends we travelled with)

    Good

    Location near the business district is excellent, pleasant friendly staff and a nice breakfast buffet.

    Room was quite grubby, dirty walls, frayed carpet with the bathroom very cramped. Not expecting luxury but would have expected a higher standard from Novotel

    Exclusive

    All the staff were polite and courteous, making time for a smile and helpful advice. The room was first class as was breakfast. Secure private parking was a real bonus so close to the heart of the city - just a quick walk across southwark bridge or the millenium bridge.

    Fabulous

    The stuff at the reception is helpful and responsive. The stuff in the dining room is doing the best to make you feel good and satisfied. The breakfast is very good. The public places are pleasant. The room was clean and nice.

    Wardrobe was too small for a family The bathroom was compact and not comfortable.
