« Two night stay...very enjoyable »

A nice, clean friendly hotel. The room was spacious and clean Staff were helpful both at reception and the restaurant. The food in the restaurant was very good, as was breakfast though I did not have a cooked breakfast. Easy to find a few minutes walk from Southwark tube station

« Average stay »

The room its self was nice and modern and comfortable and the breakfast food was good. However we had issues with a missing item from the room. A contact lens case we had left out drying, was missing when we returned to the room one evening, luckily had a spare in our case. The hotel itself was close to the tube station which was great. Really enjoyed using the swimming pool.

Sinead Business - 13/11/2019 Confirmed reviews AccorHotels

Hotel room was spacious and lobby pleasant. Room was large for London and bed very comfortable however there was a constant beeping/siren on and off at night time which I even phoned Reception about as it sounded like the Fire alarm. They assured me it wasnt and due to the constant nature on and off i can only assume it wasnt. Will not be returning.

Hotel had a nice feel about it. Location was great for what we wanted to do. The room was big enough, clean and tidy and it was great that it was tidied daily. We didn't have enough mugs, glasses or water for all our party and in spite of phoning to reception we were still one short (we coped so it's not a massive moan!) Breakfast was ok -a lot of money for what was on offer, however my daughter was included in my price which took the sting out of it. Can't fault the staff on reception, they were really friendly and helpful. We would return. Thank you.

« Just right for a great weekend »

As usual the service levels were excellent from check-in to the restaurant staff. The room was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was good. The location worked out great for us with the underground station just two blocks away. And a short work over the river to great pubs. With all this the value was great knowing how expensive London can be.

« Great Location for our Half Term London Trip »

We were looking for a good base for our half term trip to London. I automatically look for hotels on the North side of the Thames, but the pool (ideal to enjoy a relaxing and fun swim with our 8yr old daughter) and saunarium led me to consider the Novotel Blackfriars. This was a stroke of good fortune as the location (southwark tube - 2/3 mins walk) and an easy walk to Covent Garden, The Shard, Borough Market, London Bridge, Tower of London and Tower Bridge was really good. As a platinum ClubAccor member we were upgraded to an 13th Floor Executive room, which was well appointed and spotlessly clean with a good view to the North of the Thames. Our room was ready when we arrived at 1pm and our welcome to the Hotel warm and friendly. We used the Jamboree restaurant to grab some lunch and immediately relaxed in the buzzy atmosphere and enjoyed good quality food and drinks with exceptionally friendly service. Breakfast was a pleasure each morning and the Leisure facilities were 'small, but perfectly formed', modern in style and very clean. This is a real bonus for a hotel in central London. The only thing that would have improved the stay was a supply of umbrella's to borrow when the British weather at the start of Nov is 'typical'. A small point, which in no way would prevent our hearty recommendation of Novotel London Blackfriars for both business and pleasure.

« Lovely stay that was let down by a disappointing breakfast experience. »

Lovely large spacious room, very clean with attentive, friendly staff in a hotel with good facilities. Breakfast was poor. A lot of items had run out and were slow to be replenished. The coffee machine was malfunctioning and nobody was bothered to correct the issue. They were short staffed and less attentive than the rest of the staff we experienced during our stay.
