        Brand-new business hotel, ideal for events at the South Bank (5-10 mins walk). Very handy for Jubilee Line; easy to park nearby at weekends. Funky shower with privacy button. Free wi-fi. Decent bar with iPads, etc.

        Lowest-price rooms a bit smaller than I was expecting, but still okay.

      • Single
        8.2

        The pool and sauna were excellent

        The lockers in the changing rooms were difficult to lock and only 3 lockers had a key.

        Would liked the room ready for 2o'clock check-in as stated, instead more like 3pm, and at breakfast to ask 4 staff for a pot of tea was very poor, again waited 3/4 hour for this.

        We spent anniversary here. We chose this hotel because it was near home and we wanted to be near our kids. What we enjoyed most of all was the attention of the staff. They were extremely polite, very helpful. The service was immaculate. We had a great stay. The room was clean, we enjoyed the shower...really loved it, would do it again. Thanks Novotel

        Absolutely nothing...everything was wonderful.
