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.
Just come back from a weekend stay here and the hotel is everything that we needed to be , great location near Southwark underground station , quiet location, great for families and walking distance to the London Eye and Southbank area.
