New hotel with clean spacious rooms. Toothbrush is chargeable item, surprising for such a hotel. Limited covered parking spaces with a couple more open air spaces at hotel area (more available next door). Requested for umbrella during a rainy day and was not provided.

On arrival parking is good. The newest Hotel in town, the reception was excellent, the rooms are large and very clean, meals are always good here. Not too far to the water and some beautiful parks. All in all another toy stay at the Novotel.
