I had a flight from Eindhoven and was looking for a nice airport hotel. The four star Novotel Eindhoven Airport was the perfect choice! The airport is just 1,5 km away and from September they organize complimentary shuttle service from/to the airport.
The Novotel Eindhoven Airport offers 94 comfortable rooms with all the facilities you will need. Although this isn’t a new hotel, they did a good job renovating this place as you will notice from the moment you step in. The lobby area is quite spacious and bright. Most importantly, the front desk staff was very accommodating and professional. Check-in was very efficient and our keys were handed in just a couple of minutes. We were there pretty early at noon and they were happy to grand us an early check-in which was appreciated very much.
The rooms at the Novotel Eindhoven are the typical spacious Novotel rooms. They all offer comfortable king size beds and a couch which is very convenient when you are travelling with kids as this is a double sofa bed. What I particularly liked in this room was the quality of the HD television and the separate toilet. Bathroom featured bathtub and single sink. Everything in the room was very clean. When I looked out of the window, I immediately noticed the beautiful garden!
It is great to hang out and chill down in this beautiful garden. They even have an outdoor pool with comfortable loungers. The outdoor terrace is a nice feature as well. Here I enjoyed a cup of coffee while enjoying the surrounding area. Prices are very reasonable. Oh, by the way, the internet speed is pretty good here. Even outside I browsed on my iPad and watched some Netflix without any problems.
Kids are welcome too at the Novotel Eindhoven Airport. Novotel is pretty child friendly and offer great deals for families. There’s the pool, but there’s also a small play area for kids inside and outside. It sometimes frustrates me that hotels forget children, but kids definitely will have a great time here as they have a lot of facilities for them.
We had dinner at their restaurant URBN and loved the overall experience! For a hotel restaurant, the kitchen is very good and the menu is pretty varied. Great cocktails and mocktails too, by the way. As a starter I had the tomato soup with meat and my dad preferred the soup with sea food. Nice to be able to choose your favorite. As a main course, I enjoyed the chicken very much. The dessert, a typical small Dutch apple pie was just delicious! Breakfast is served here as well. Since we had to catch a plane early in the morning, the staff was happy to provide breakfast boxes which was great to start our day!
Believe me, this was the perfect start of our getaway! If you need to catch a plane from the Eindhoven Airport or want to play some golf in the area (a 18 hole golf course is nearby – 2 km), then this is the hotel to stay at! Also, if you are travelling with kids, you can’t go wrong here. I will definitely return.
