    Very good

    Location made it an easy walk into town. One member of staff on the front desk was extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel is clean, smart and sleek.

    Most staff on the front desk were unhelpful and bordering on rude. One told us we couldn't park and carpark was fully booked. The friendly member of staff gave us a parking card when we tried again 5 minutes later. Food comes out far too quickly (within minutes) to be freshly cooked. Quality of food is poor for the price- spaghetti served in pool of cooking water with low quality meat. Breakfast ordered to room didn't arrive. Member of staff enquired for us. Asked later and they said restaurant denied knowledge of the order. No one told us this or followed it up to rectify after our enquiry so waited a further hour for non-existant breakfast. When the "do not disturb" sign is on door members of staff knock it on floor to make it look like it's fallen off so they can legitimately disturb and knock on door.

    Superb

    Comfortable room. Good location, close to port. Everything worked, hich is always nice. Staff was friendly and helped out and answered questions I had.

    The free internet did not have enough bandwidth for internet calls but surfing was ok.

    Very good

    The service in the restaurant was terrible. We waited almost 2 hours before getting our mains, they were busy but every other table was getting their food first. In the end I asked for the food to be brought to our room as our child was falling asleep. They then forgot the desserts. The next day I went back to the restaurant to get some food for my daughter and some French fries for myself. They forgot the French fries but still charged me for them. It is hard to get someone to order drinks.

    Food at the restaurant; live music at the poolside bar; modern and funky reception area

    Dreadful rooms - very bland and 'prison cell' like. Bed was on a metal frame box that didnt feel very secure. Bathroom had some awful sewer type smell coming from basin plug hole.

    Excellent location close to the harbour entrance.

    Restaurant and bar expensive. Dismal view from non port view rooms.

    Location

    The room does not correspond at a 4* Hotel... The bed was a sofa- bed.View on staff break. Noisy air conditioning. Bath room like in a Formule 1 hotel ...Breakfast not included in price, so expensive regarding quality/comfort and price

    The location and the friendly staff in both the restaurant and the front desk. The food is also very good.

    Everything else. It's way below all Novotels I have ever stayed. It's, at the best an Ibis, a bad Ibis. It's more like a Formule 1 with Novotel pricing. Nobody to help you with the luggage. Kids cannot go to the indoor pool, so it's extremely unfriendly. Cleaning staff was rude...very rude. The general state of the facilities are a little outdated and looks like it had been upgraded for the latest time in 1993, maximum. The rooms needed a serious refurbishing and the air-conditioning/heater made a lot of noise but didn't blow any air, hot or cold.

    Very good

    The room was not very clean. I found I.E. opended half empty soda tins in the cabinet below the mini bar. Informed front office, but these items remained in my room. Also the Nespresso cup tray was empty up on arrival. Also this was reported to teh front office, but no follow up.

    Good

    Nice hotel with English speaking staff.Good breakfast and heated swimming pool.

    Shame about filthy carpet (black stains as if grease) and not very clean shower plus 18 euro daily parking charge.This does not deserve 4 stars.

    Good

    Friendly staff at the reception. The loudest i.e. the best fire alarm we have ever experienced! You must be completely dead not to wake up if the alarm goes off in the night... Fortunately it was a false alarm in our case.

    Crappy food at the restaurant, would not recommend the club sandwich to anybody. Slow service at the pool bar.
