We were en-route and broke our journey at this hotel which is not far from the Bordeaux ring road. The view of the lake is lovely and gives a peaceful ambiance. The room was clean and comfortable, the hotel's dog-friendly and the car park is secure - thus ticking all our boxes. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.... More

busy when we went, busy when we left. Lots of coach tours staying there, Russian football team, Belgium cycling team, tourists from Spain, Russia and Italy. Breakfast was crowded, had to time it right for good service, ate once at hotel in evening, typical Novotel, get what you expect so no complaints. Hotel is at the end of a tramline... More

You can find a excuse for most of things in the hospitality business but never for denied service between your business hours, I arrive at the hotel at 10:00 pm got advice from the front desk agent to go straight to the restaurant since they still open seconds later when I arrive at the restaurants they look confused and told...

I liked the Bordeaux Lac hotel better than another Novotel I often use, the Bordeaux Aeroport, because it's in a prettier setting and my room, at least, was updated beyond the standard at the airport hotel. Check-in was easy, my room had a great view of the lake and I was surprised to see that Bordeaux's sleek tram stops just... More

Having stayed in various Novotels in France & the UK, we like the chain. On entering the accommodation block however, it was apparent that the decor and carpets etc were in need of a spruce up. The room was perfect however for our needs and clean. The restaurant seemed popular in the evenings, however we only had breakfast in the... More

I recently stayed at the Novotel for one night with my niece and daughter before flying out of Mèrignac the next morning. The room was clean and big enough for the 3 of us and the beds were comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful and printed off our Ryanair tickets as well as advising us to factor in peak hour...

Very good hotel situated at the exhibition centre complex, which is on the outskirts of Bordeaux, but within easy reach of the centre by tram. The tram cost 4.60 euro for a day ticket and runs every 10 minutes until midnight and takes about 20 minutes to the centre. The hotel is modern, clean, has good sized rooms, friendly efficient...

Quite standard Novotel good experience. Good room. It is very conveniently located near the congress center and there is a tram stop just behind to reach city center. It is a quite area. Restaurant service could be improved.

The surroundings are quite boring, however the hotel itself is nice, clean and fresh. I really liked the furniture, and the fact that there is an area for kids to play and read. The pool area could have been maintained a little better, at least by constantly providing pool towels. To get better rating, the staff in the restaurant should... More
