We stayed for two nights whilst at the Paralympics. I've stayed in Novotels before on business, but this is the first time we've stayed as a family - and what can I say but well done Novotel! My young daughter was made to feel really welcome with a personal hello and some little gifts on arrival, and her own pot...

This is a great hotel if you are looking for accommodation close to Heathrow. Set in a beautiful location by thei river, it's only a 2 minute walk to the station. Rooms are well appointed and clean. Staff are friendly and helpful and speak different languages so that's helpful. A few good eateries nearby so you have choices. Set away...

The staff was very friendly and efficient. Bar food was ok. Breakfast service efficient, although the choice of items was a little limited. The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. Close to the Paddington station. Two problems: 1) Internet kept cutting out. I was traveling with colleagues and they had the same problem. They couldn't fix it. 2) Bathtub...

This hotel is within a 5 minute walk from Paddington station, which makes it very convenient for people flying into and out of Heathrow. You can get to most of the sites by tube in a maximum of 25 minutes. The hotel itself is very clean, nice sized rooms, separate shower and bath. It has a safe and small mini...

I travelled during the Olympics & this proprty proved very convenient for getting to Olympic Park and London in general, including Hyde Park. The room was a good size for Lindon standards and price.

A lot of hotels seem to forget that their primary purpose is to provide people a place to sleep. Novotel was the quietest hotel I have ever stayed in - no noisy plumbing, fans, lift mechanisms, creaking floorboards, staff slapping papers outside your door... Quadruple glazing kept out the noise from Paddington station despite the fact that we were practically...

This is an excellent novotel. The rooms are fine, the service is efficient and friendly, the location is good, close to the underground and the centre of the city. We did upgrade to a so called executive room and it was worth the relatively small extra amount. The only criticism could be the relatively small space available for bread etc...

A nice, clean, modern hotel. Usual French idiosyncratic bathroom arrangements (separate toilet). Very clean and fresh. Long way to walk to nearest underground (wrong end of Paddington Station) and rather expensive. Friendly staff and excellent breakfast. Poor location means I would probably not return.
