Room ok bit cold so request additional radiator in advance. Slippers £5 per pair pay or walk in bear foot. Swimming pool water it is cold, don't believe what hotel reception says in case you decide to call them. Steam room was off for 4 days so can't comment, sauna coldest I have ever met 71 to 75 Celsius, you can imagine after cold pool you run into just about warm sauna trying not to catch cold and wondering should I wrap my self in towels to keep myself warm in sauna. Jacuzzi water bit warmer but really dirty. So all in all, you have choice after cold pool (with all swimmers complaining about itchy eyes from high levels of chlorine) use just about warm sauna or dirty jacuzzi. By the way don't expect such luxuries as working hair drier or shampoo in mens changing rooms this is too much to ask. After 3 days of our stay even such luxuries as cold pool and dirty jacuzzi was closed as well. So hard to comment what happened after 3 days, maybe finally health and safety came and shut all this joke down, at least I hope. Thank you Novotel, for destroying young family stay and Christmas. One day later all of us got cold and high fever. Never again. Families with young children, better stay away from this place.
