          sorry to hear that Louise, we were with Accor for many years, but got out about 10 years ago. You do get a free night and "50%" but 50% off prices that no one ever pays, could never use at weekends, school holidays, so got sick of renewing and left

          Do you offer a shuttle from the Airport?

          Hi! Novotel doesn't have a courtesy shuttle. You can either book with Canterbury Shuttles or Super Shuttle as these are the companies that usually pick up and drop off hotel guests.
