    The location was really good, Tube station (Southwark) is only 100 meters from the hotel and Blackfriars station (Tube and train) is a 5 minute walk on a straight road (across the bridge). Hotel was really new looking, modern and very clean. I have stayed at many different Novotels over the previous few years as i find the standard to be reflected across the board. I would gladly stay again.

    Only issue would be the breakfast should be included at all price options as for £15 price level I would pay or attend. Should it have been included I may have attended, Previously on vacation at Novotel I have experienced breakfast and it was excellent but would not valued at £15.

    Very good location. Get the option of 3 tube stations - Southwark tube, London bridge and Waterloo. Some good supermarket stores close by as well. Bus stop right in front. Very convenient. Very friendly staff.

    Breakfast Buffet should be included in the rates, that would be really convenient.

    I only recommend this hotel.

    Superb

    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.

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

    The hotel was immaculate. The staff very helpful and friendly. The room was spacious enough, very clean and comfortable. The bathroom, with the frosted screen, was lovely. Short walk to Southwark tube station made is a great stay.

    Loved everything about the room and the hotel, would definately use it again

    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.
