We had a great time staying at the Novotel, it was clean, pleasant and staff were very polite and helpful especially The staff at the reception and the dining room. The breakfast was good and the evening dinners were good in value and quality.

Scott Families - 19/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Novotel Edinburgh needs a bit of TLC. Lovely entrance area, the room 432 needs a new bathroom. Very grotty and although there is a bath, no tap to fill it up? Apart from that the room was nicely finished but far too hot. The air con/fan control didn't do anything to take the edge off even when turned down to 5 degrees.

We loved the hotel and it’s proximity to the city was great. Public transport was amazing as several buses were available nearby to take us to the central part of the city.

Decent Hotel; Shame on Adjoining Rooms.

Coastal671040 Solo travel - 18/05/2019 TripAdvisor review

Hotel looks brand new. Nice furnishing. Parking was a bit difficult to find. Downside was that staff put me in a room with a connecting door (the other room had noisy kids; I specifically requested to be far away from kids).

Dear Coastal671040 Thanks for your reivew. We look forward to welcome you back to our hotel. Regards Henrique

Anonymous Couples - 17/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The hotel was lovely, comfortable and clean! Reception staff were v ery nice and accommodating. To be really honest, the waiting staff let you down. Admittedly we arrived for breakfast late on our first morning(we thought breakfast was served until 10.30am but it was 10am) we arrived about 9.50am and were seated but it probably would have been helpful if the guy who seated us had just reminded us that the buffet would be closing soon...I understand it’s not their problem if we got the time wrong but it just seems common sense/courtesy. As a result another came out at 9.55am and pulled the curtain around. I was getting coffee and only my husband jumped up and asked him could we get breakfast we would have got nothing and the guy was extremely rude and my husband had to plead with him and say we would only be a few seconds grabbing a bite! The guy tut tutted and moaned for the 20seconds it took us to get some food. Very unprofessional in my opinion. I know they have a job to do but surely there should be a little leeway when guests are paying good money to stay at your hotel? Also we had dinner the second night and the waitress was quite pleasant until my husband asked for something (I think it was half chips/half potatoes or something). I understand it may not have been something she had been asked before but honestly the face she made was terrible...it was like he had asked for something completely outrageous (again very unprofessional) All she had to do was take his request, ask the chef and politely tell us it wasn’t possible, really no need for such a visual expression of her confusion/disgust!! And then another girl came out and unceremoniously dumped my plate on the table without another word! The original girl was pleasant after and did check in with us but a different guy cleared our plates and just casually said do you want anything else but it really felt as though he didn’t want to get us anything else! I’ve worked as a waitress and from my experience there and as a someone who enjoys going to restaurants, I think the correct protocol is to ask if the consumer would like to see the dessert menu and if they would like tea/coffee or another drink! These are just little things individually but altogether it seemed the food service let your hotel down and as you want constructive feedback to improve service I hope this is helpful to you! I genuinely am not in the habit of complaining and was probably too shy to say anything on check out but as I’ve received two emails regarding this I thought maybe I should say it to help! But we did enjoy our stay and your city is beautiful and we will be back for sure! Kind regards, Rebecca

Good location, pleasant staff, great breakfast, however room a bit tired.

John Couples - 15/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Location, service, and food was excellent. The only downside was the room was a bit tired, blackout curtains had small hokes in them that let in the light.

Decent hotel in Edinburgh

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Sinyee Solo - 15/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

The stay was ok. Two things were disappointing. First, the hotel confused my reservation and set up the sofa bed for me. This meant wasted time closing the sofa bed. Second, I requested for a quiet room away from children. Yet, the hotel allocated me to a room (with adjoining door) next to a family with young children. I could hear the children shouting in their room. Rather unpleasant.

Good hotel, modern room

K. L. M. Couples - 14/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Checking on could be done on line, but I chose to do in when I arrived which was quick and easy. I only got 1 key, which is unusual for 2 guests booked, and there was no water. Also surprised to find only 1 shower gel.

Excellent hotel in excellent location

Anton U. Families - 13/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Stayed with the family and we liked it very much. The hotel offered a very good breakfast and we thought that the taxi order system was great. Our room was clean and cosy. The only thing, which was unusual was an open sink in the middle of it but wet got used to it. Great experience altogether

Pleasant

Overpriced

Customer review rating 4.4/5

R C. Business - 11/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

Room was clean however feel it was grossly overpriced for what i paid per nite for an executive suit very limited selection of toiletries ( No show cap) standard in most rooms ! And very limited selection of tea not enough milk and 2 small shortbread biscutes. Room was cold despite turning on heating max and despite being a future of the room large windows light awoke every morning after 4 am despite wedging curtains closed ( electric blind would be more stylish and beneficial as in other hotels)

Jady D. Families - 08/05/2019 AccorHotels certified review

I stay in 2/3 nights in different hotels per week and I can quiet honestly say this is one of the best I’ve stayed in, they upgraded me from the executive room to a suite and wow what a room and amazing value my kids absolutely loved it, it was amazing. The pool, steam room and jacuzzi were well used and to a very high standard. The bar and food was 10 out of 10 as well. There is nothing I could fault about my stay at all. If you get the opportunity to get the suite it is a must. A very memorable stay and a great location. When you think of Novotel you think budget this did not fell or look like a budget at all it was to a very high standard from the reception to the rooms. I will never stay in a Hilton or the Mal again when visiting Edinburgh and I will be returning to this hotel again very soon and not just once.
