I'm staying at my first Novotel today, via the Happy Mondays sale. Having stayed at a few Ibis hotels using the same sale, I wondered if the Novotels would give free breakfast, like Ibis. They don't. However, both Novotel and Mercure have released these free vouchers this week... which include free breakfast! http://www.accorhosting.com/NovotelChristmas/Novotel_12_Treats_of_Christmas.pdf http://www.accorhosting.com/MercureChristmas/MercureChristmasOffers.pdf This seems to have gone under the radar so far. There is a list of hotels on each page that are taking part but I would contact them beforehand to check. My Novotel is running the breakfast promo but not the other vouchers included. For comparison, Novotel breakfast booked in advance costs £9.95, and if booked at check-in costs £16.95.... so the voucher is a great deal!
