Long wait for check in and out. Rooms especially bathrooms were looking old with wear and tear damage. We had to move rooms because our bathroom was leaking into resturant which confirmed my notion they are old. View from room was great. All staff were friendly and pleasant. Breakfast was nice. Walking through an empty, old and dirty harbourside complex really dampened the experience for Novotel. To be honest for the price i was expecting better, nothing that special about our stay.

The restaurant area and lounge is very nice however our room was in need of updating.. bathroom was old and needed a proper clean. The door to our bathroom was broken. I don’t like how the amenities are in pump bottles.

The staff were excellent. They were so friendly and curtious. The meals in the resturant and the staff were equally impressive. The only let down was the shower facility, in particular the water head and there were not enough of a selection of pillows. They were all hard and the bed sagged in the middle.
