Good basic breakfast. Typical European fare with selection of cheeses and cold meats. I personally liked the coffee machine. Service was adequate.

Ate here twice, small lunch selection and average buffet breakfast offering. Light and airy, perfectly adequate but not somewhere to come unless you are staying in the hotel.

Can be better, if you are in business its perfect, for tourism is not the best as it better to eat in regular places

As a vegetarian I found the menu very dull. There is a nice range of bottled beers but you are better of eating elsewhere.

We were staying overnight in the hotel, and stopped by for a hopefully easy dinner with 2 kids. Waited for 20 min to get the menu (with two reminders), and then over an hour to be served. Nothing special, just pasta and burgers, they even refused to make the pasta plain, it only can come with sauce... Cannot comment on... More

A nice European Breakfast came with toast, croissants, french bread, yogurts, cheeses, hot scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, bacon, meats, veggies, cereals, and fruits. If you couldnt find something to eat, there is something wrong. Service was great, they were always filling things up and keeping them fresh. Would definitely have breakfast here again.

I had breakfast here. The food was great and service was good too. I like their coffee. That was the only hotel which verified your name from the room number.

Good breakfast buffet. Nespresso coffee machine and spacious dining area. Croissants, cereal, Ham bacon and sausages. The usual suspects.

I absolutely love Novotel breakfasts. Although the breakfast serving area is not too big, it's well-organised and there's offered literally everything what modern people would like to have on breakfast. Amazing hot breakfast (I liked grilled veggies a'la ratatouille) and the dried fruit selection. We were lucky having lunches in same Novotel and everything was delicious. Desserts should get the...

Menu is short and does not seem to change oftern but what is on offer always seems to be very good. As a hotel guest, I like this place but I would not eat here if I was not a guest. Atmosphere seems to be lacking.
