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

Great place to stay if you have a car. Plenty of parking available. The room was a good size, with a very nice bathroom. The location is great because the tram station is across the road. Reception are very nice and friendly and speak good English. The bed was comfy which is always a plus. Would stay again. Thank you.

This hotel was ok. The room was pretty basic and tired looking. I had stayed in a much nicer and friendlier Novotel in Les Mans the night before. I was also annoyed as I booked a "family room" but turns out this is 2 rooms and not connected to each other unless you ask. Don't make the same mistake as... More

I have no idea what hotel stars are for European. This is not a 4 stars hotel at all. If you want to be in the middle of nowhere, go there. We arrived around 9 pm; checked in, got into the room, went out, only found dinner service at an Ibis hotel nearby. We were very close to go to... More

We had a good stay in the hotel for 2 nights recently. The hotel is next to the lake in a quiet location. The room was comfortable and breakfast good. The staff were helpful and efficient. The shops were about 5 minutes by car. The tram takes about 20 minutes to the centre.

A beautiful hotel with friendly staffs and this is one thing I noticed in Bordeaux everyone is friendlier and the food better. We had a lovely lunch at the hotel restaurant and though I had just a salad it was very fresh and the portion was enough to make me not order a main course. The view from our room... More

We stay at many Novotel all around Europe including the one that just received an award winners for 2015 in Luxembourg. This one needs to catch up with its franchise group. The room was fairly clean. Hotel Management should put more of Front Desk staff during busy check-in/check out time. Hence one staff had to answer the phone and left... More

I could resume this place with the words: great rooms, nice hotel, friendly staff ! We stayed here for 3 consecutive years to take a rest from our ride from Belgium to Spain and we love it ! We enjoy a swim in the pool (completely renewd this year), have a drink on the terrace and some times we have... More

Stayed here for a holiday week to explore the local area. It is ideally located with a tram stop outside and a short, easy drive into Bordeaux Centre Ville although parking can be challenging! The hotel was very clean and the staff were friendly and efficient. The room was reasonably spacious and cleaned to a good standard every day. Wifi... More
