Good 6.0
Covid breakfast awful
We were happy to have received an upgrade to the Novotel. Unfortunately the check in was slow and confused with on of my party being denied his room until I myself arrived and another member being booked in under my name so initially I was held up as they had already let my room to apparently me! Room was comfortable but too warm and as I was on the busy road side of the hotel it was too noisy to have the window open. Finally the COVID breakfast was disgusting. Boiled egg over cooked sausage and stale warm bread (was it supposed to be toast) in a polystyrene pack! It's no wonder we had to take it to our rooms to eat as a restaurant setting would have caused a riot.

Me and kids + dog enjoyed staying there Everything was provided and even in strong distancing and with virus around We stayed in Novotel as was moved there ....Everything was perfect and room was big and comfortable

Very good 8.0
Hotel is conveniently located for the city centre. Rooms clean and comfortable and there is good Wifi access. Two points to note: 1. This is a budget hotel, so don't expect shampoo. Only a bar of soap supplied. (You may be able to buy shampoo from reception) 2. Hotel car park is not free. If its full, the Novhotel next door can be used for parking as it part of the same group as IBIS.

For a budget hotel, the room was actually really good! Toilet was a bit small and stuffy though. Very comfy bed, had a great sleep!

Really helpful staff, genuinely dog-friendly, parking costs - but good. Couldn't get the room temperature quite right - spare blanket would be helpful but overall very good thank you.
