We stayed in this hotel in September 2011 and it was just what we wanted/needed for a long weekend trip. The room was spacious and clean, with a comfortable bed. The breakfast (which was included in our rate) was great, with a range of hot and cold options to choose from. The location was good for getting around London on...

I would not have chosen this hotel due to the fact it is a bit off the beaten path. However, we did choose it because it was close to my employer. I was disappointed in the lack of customer service to Novotel's guests from the reception. Everything was made much more complicated than it needs to be. There was no...

This is a hotel I have stayed in many times. It is a very modern clean hotel with a good gym and swimming pools. The rooms are also very good. The TV channel system is a bit annoying but you get used to it. The breakfast is brilliant - can't fault it. The hotel is a bit on the pricy...

I stayed with my family for five days at this hotel in a "family room" (2 x beds and one sofa bed). Excellent location, very good and complete (hot and cold) breakfast, very easy and professional check in and out, free 20 minutes wireless internet access from lobby and, very impressive, very quiet rooms even our room was facing the...

selected Paddington Novotel based on Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed..rooms comfortable due to clever design...and virtually soundproof..only concern is the ventilation/air conditioning system...service friendly and efficient..food good....8 minute walk to Paddington....not sure that I would grade it a 4 *..more a 3* plus....would stay again and recommend to clients

Didn’t stay for long but enjoyed the experience. Rooms are big, clean, quite, a total relax. Didn’t have the chance to try the food but it would have been fantastic. The staff is very friendly. Check in and out is very fast and not time consuming.

The Novotel is new and nice to stay at, but on the whole disappointing. The price was competitive and the booking was easy, we also got everything we asked for - all was well except for a few essential things. Firstly I asked specifically if there was a car park at the hotel. This hotel does not have a car...
