My wife, teenage daughter and I had a lovely 4 day stay here. Friendly staff, nice rooms, good breakfast and good location. Check out the Mango Tree Indian restaurant, nearby or Tas Turkish restaurant near Southwalk tube station. A big thumbs up! Thanks guys.

Stayed here a few times. The location is great, but if you want a sleep-in there's no chance, especially during the week. The laundry van arrived around 6 a.m. right outside our window and proceeded to load for about 20 minutes, followed by the rubbish truck. Building work is going on next door - started bright and early at 8... More

I really like this Hotel and if Accor ever sort out their rewards system then it would be one of my three favourite hotels for working in the city.

Stayed here for a 4 days business trip. Have stayed at multiple Accor hotel around the world and can only say that this is a standard Novotel one, not better or worse. Which means fairly large rooms with simplistic interiors and service that is professional but never overhelming. The real benefit with this hotel is the location combined with good... More

Good location. Public areas adequate. Free use of two computers in the foyer a bonus. Our room was cramped but we did have four sharing. Put me up bed had not been cleaned thoroughly before use, we found a discarded ear plug. The bathroom sink was blocked, something housekeeping should have noticed when making up the room

Stayed here with my sister and two of our daughters. Four in a room was a bit of a squeeze but fine for what it was. Hotel was clean. Staff helpful. The location was great as it was a short walk to the beautiful southbank along the Thames. Would stay again.

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
