      Great spot that's where it ended. Old room. Air conditioner not working, toilet running and mattress far to soft. Breakfast very average. Cooks on the egg station are so rude, no manners at all. Would not stay there again.

      Great location. Great breakfast. Free parking.”
      Really enjoyed our stay here as a base to explore the region. The hotel is situated right at the end of 'eat street' - with excellent food options. Free parking let us come and go with our rental vehicle as we pleased when not on foot. The buffet breakfast was high quality. The thermal spring water piped in house to their pools is distinctive and you feel great after soaking in them. You will smell like sulfur afterwards though - rinse off well!

      Worth the 5 minute walk to St. Faiths church to see the window with Jesus etched into it, take a seat and it looks like Jesus is walking on the lake. Located at the end of Eat Street makes it easy to find a meal. Good buffet breakfast with eggs and omelettes prepared for you and the juice bar is a nice addition. Staff and cortous and helpful.

      The property is a bit dated but it does tick all the boxes. It is centrally located to everything that's interesting to look at, and it also has hot springs inside.

      I would recommend this hotel to my friend due to the staff are so nice and friendly. The room was big and loved the view. The hotel itself is close to all the different restaurants and the breakfast , yummy.. I would love to come back with my whole family next time. We only stayed for one night , we could have stayed longer but our holiday was so short. Anyway, when we comeback, we will definitely go back to novotel hotel. Thanks.

      Good stay”
      Great room and close to restaurants. Only thing that was disappointing was at the time of stay there was a fire alarm that went on at 1am in the morning, no staff or fire wardens that showed us where to go or when to go back in. In the middle of winter and of the night it wasn't a good experience. Other than that it was a good stay. Breakfast was great also.

      Comfortable Bed”
      I only score lower because of fire evacuation at 4am, no communication by any staff members to guests, we waited patiently outside in the cold and no staff members updated or reassured us that everything was ok. There was not checking off to see if all the guests were safe. We were left wondering what had happened and when the alarm went about an hour later we once again had no communication. I understand its a large building but quest safety should be priority. Otherwise the reception staff were friendly and helpful when checking in and out. I put the cleanliness low because the ceiling in the bathroom was dirty and the showerhead was disgusting. The bed was absolutely divine!
