Dear Guest First of all I would like to thank you so much for taking the time to rate your recent stay at the Novotel Edinburgh Center. We always strive to exceed our guests' expectations, and I see we did miss the mark on this occasion. I would like to have more information about your experience and the reason of not achieving our guest satisfaction promise. Would it be possible to share your experience with me on the amine.zungi@accor.com ? I do sincerely apologize for our inability to meet your expectations during your stay. Kind Regards Amine ZUNGI General Manager Novotel Edinburgh Center

We had an excellent experience with the Novotel Edinburgh Centre Hotel and staff last week. The room was clean and up to standards. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was convenient to the castle and many other venues. I would stay with them again and I recommend them without hesitation.
