We chose to stay somewhat far from Paris. But still close enough to come back and forth. One you are there, you become very dependent on the hotel, for there is nothing close by to buy a bread! Maybe was the time of the year and everyone left... We were 4 in a room, a sardine can size ! And... More

This hotel pretty much defines average for Novotel in France except that the location isn't near to anything (so it's great for a distraction-free conference and not so great for the average traveller.) The rooms are comfortable and have a small fridge, TV (several languages) and reasonable lighting and furniture. My room had a sofa that probably opened to a... More

This is a typical example of a mid-range chain-hotel. Clean, and with all the services you might need. Modern and well decorated if lacking in character. The rooms are a little on the small side, but well appointed. I only stayed here because my business colleagues had chosen to do so. I would not seek out a hotel like this,... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a group tour. Our biggest let down was no air conditioning this time of year. We left window open one night but the spotlight outside lit up our room that we had to close window and curtain. Other wise nice settling in the country. One and half hour drive to Paris in traffic. Pullout sofa... More

It's a hotel wih base and first floor, although lift is just opposite reception, so we use scales because our room was just few... More

We stay here at least twice a year. We always arrive late at night. The staff are friendly and the rooms comfortable. In previous years they have run out of a few items at breakfast but this year they were more busy and did not appear to be running out of anything. Saclay is a nice quiet hamlet on the... More

No issues. 30-40 minutes train ride to Paris and 10 minutes car ride to Versailles Palace. Staff was very helpful and nice. Room a little tiny for a family of 4 but... More

We stayed here for 1 night to break the journey from Calais to the Dordogne. Hotel was easy to find and in a very pretty village just outside Paris. Easy access to main motorways. We were a family of 4 with 2 small children aged 2 and 3. Plenty of free secure parking available and check in was seamless, staff... More

We stopped at this hotel when traveling with National Holidays. What a nice hotel it is. It is set in its own lovely grounds with a open air swimming pool. Breakfast was excellent consisting of a host of fresh bread. Continental style or English style buffet.
