2 out of 5
Had to ask for clean towels after i had had make up room tag on door. Second night after having makeup room on door i had to ask housekeeping to come and make up my room. I booked a twin room they gave me a double. They did change me but then we were in a room that the heating did not work (reported to reception) and required extra blankets and a mini heater after being informed that because it is a corner room the heating probably does not work well enough there. Not really good enough for Novotel as have staid with this chain before. Disappointing
