Novotel Port Harcourt

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is about a 20 mins from the airport, hidding away from the busy streets with good security provided. On entering the Reception, I was welcomed by Lawrence and Victoria who were very professional but could be better with a little smile . The Rooms! wow! I was really impressed with the refurbishment here considering its state the last time I was here a few years ago, everything now is spectacular and I can finally say that Novotel is meeting up the expected standard. The food is great too, so in general good value for money paid. ( I stayed in Room 301) My only suggestions would be to add a little cool music vibe at the reception to give it life, improve the room service menus ( I couldn't find my favorites like yam, plantain, egg sauce, jollof or ofada) and then the reception,I perceived a damp smell on entrance which Management needs to address . That said I will definitely come back again.

Finally arrived after epic journey and was looking forward to soak in Tub and a bit TV and sleep, nearly 3 hours later and still no TV and they are struggling for another room, Unbelievable, hotel is not actually bad but come on 3 hours to change a room unacceptable sorry

The Novotel is simply an awesome experience. It is safe, quiet and easy accessible to most local shops and restaurants. The shower is simply out of this world and had me taking showers many times a day. The food is great and the decor is excellent. The rooms are spacious and the bed is wonderful. Going back soon.

This hotel gives you everything. Good rooms, Awesome customer service, wonderful food and perfect security. The environment is also very nice and serene. You wont regret your stay in this wonderful hotel.

Enjoyed staying here on a business trip. Stayed in a lovely renovated room, comfy, clean with friendly service. The outside area was under renovation so it wasn't very nice. Pub service was good, beer excellent and pizzas tasty. Recommended for a stay.

My family and I enjoyed our stay over this property during the Easter weekend. quite and well secured place to stay. my kids wanted to swim but unfortunately the pool was still under construction. i think they need to speed up on it, for a 4 star hotel like Novotel...

In a place like phc one would like to have a safe hotel and novotel fits the bill. Strict security at gate. Air force base across the road. However service wasn't much to shout about. We had reservations for 3 rooms but upon arrival at 9pm were only given one, apparently due to an unusually large group having just arrived and one wing undergoing renovation. Eventually this was sorted out after about 30 mins but this was quite a surprise for a novotel. Breakfast was just ok. Just not used to having instant coffee for hotel breakfast.

Despite ongoing renovation works, Novotel Port Harcourt has managed to maintain services at an acceptable level. The room make-over is quite attractive and gives it a refreshing atmosphere. Swimming pool is currently under reconstruction. The food remains the same exciting range….I love their salads! Still one of my favourite hotels in the city of Port Harcourt.

Staff were kind to upgrade my work colleague and I to the recently refurbished rooms on the third floor. Very nicely done with fresh modern furniture, carpets, decor and bathrooms. Good to see progress with the rooms however work noise is apparent coming from the lower floors during daylight hours. Management do make apologies for this and is unavoidable at this time I guess. The pool area again was unavailable due to re landscaping so little else was available but the lounge area. Bar staff and Resturant waiting staff were all polite and friendly with the chefs doing a fine job on the quality and presentation of the meals. Once renovations are complete this secure hotel will be more attractive to businesses to accommodate their staff I feel. Thank you Novotel!

Dont be fooled by the photos like I was. Port Harcourt is a rough and dangerous place, this hotel has poor security, filthy rooms, malfunctioning lifts, stinky lobby washroom,horrendous breakfast! The only good thing is the cold tap beer.
