Overall the experience was good. The pool situation was terrible. The one time use key and having to go through the separate entrances from my boys was ridiculous. Then, the there were no places to sit in the pool area and it was like an oven in there. Open it up and make it more accessible to families.

A pleasant and comfortable stay

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Dougie Couples - 16/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I found the hotel to be nice and modern with good facilities, the hotel was also in a nice area to explore Edinburgh from. The room we stayed in was a standard room which was nice and modern feeling but was let down by a dated and not very clean bathroom, for our next stay we are booked into a superior room so I am expecting a far nicer bathroom this time.

Everything was great. Pool area was lovely. Only downside is the changing area is extremely small. I also felt we paid enough for accommodation that the car park should not be chargeable

Good but a few issues

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Diane E. Families - 15/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The hotel is modern, clean and in a good location. The staff were helpful and friendly and the breakfast was good. The room was comfortable but there were a few issues with our stay, the biggest being there were no towels when we got out of the pool so we had to go back to our room dripping wet in swimsuits which was very humiliating, especially when the lift doors opened at ground floor and another guest got in who was not impressed with our appearance. The fridge in our room also did not work properly which meant food we had bought went off. We also should have had more room refreshments considering there were 4 guests staying in the room (still only 2 small biscuits a day).

Positive: The staff were excellent, both friendly and efficient. They really made us feel welcome. The pool was enjoyable and kept well. Negative: Breakfast ingredients were of poor quality. Cheap fatty bacon for example. There is definitely room to up their game here.

Average hotel but nice to have a pool!

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Mrs T. Families - 14/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The room was very basic, small & clean. My 7 year old swam twice a day however which he loved. The pool is very small & only 1.2metres deep so no good for anyone that actually wants to exercise. It gets very busy with kids everyday between 5-6.

Dear LOUISE. Thank you for completing our survey I noticed that some of your scores were below our hotel average. Is there any other comments that you could share with us to improve our experience? During school holidays the pool is indeed very popular for families being one of our unique points of sale. We look forward to welcome you back to provide you a better experience. Thank you and see you soon. Best wishes Henrique Tiago de Castro Rooms Division Manager Novotel Edinburgh Centre

Average disappointed

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Jason C. Families - 14/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Bar staff lacking in hospitality - appreciate you get hundreds of people staying - the general tourist (foreign) wouldn’t know that 2 double shots of “a good whisky” whisky would cost £52.00 , - now I did this because it was our last night and I can , but guys - some people wouldn’t have a clue ., some can’t afford this, it’s a tourist trap. Please tell them .

Dear IAN. Thank you for completing our survey I noticed that some of your scores were below our hotel average. Thank you for your comments. We are actually quite proud with our whiskey selection which ranges from entry level whiskey all the way up to premium single malts. Are there any other comments you would like to share with us? I remain at your service. Thank you and see you soon. Best wishes Henrique Tiago de Castro Rooms Division Manager Novotel Edinburgh Centre

Nice well located hotel.

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Steve G. Families - 13/04/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Good hotel. Clean well equipped and modern rooms. Good pool that my child enjoyed swimming in. Short walk to City Centre. Good breakfast with a view of the castle! Reception and bar staff were efficient but not warm or friendly. This gives a bad impression of what was otherwise a very good value for money hotel experience.

Dear Steve, Thank you for your constructive feedback. I'm happy to hear that you overall enjoyed your stay. I have also taken notes of your impression about the friendliness of the team. I will mention your comments on our upcoming team meeting so that we could learn form our guests experience. Thank you for staying with us and I hope you will give us the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards, Daniel Hajas Front Office Manager Novotel Edinburgh Centre
