This hotel was easy to find, had plenty of parking, and nicely located overlooking le lac. The hotel was perfectly adequate for a night and we fitted a family of four into one of the rooms with a double and 2 single sofa beds. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food at lunch and breakfast was excellent.... More

Have stayed here many times and like the location by the lake. The views are lovely and sometimes the sunsets are spectacular. Currently there is quite a lot of construction work around the hotel with the building of a tram-line into central Bordeaux, which will be very useful when completed. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the rooms are... More

Typical Novotel format - so reliable and pleasant. Restaurant staff were very friendly and made our 2 nights. Location was fine as we were touring by car, but it was not a place to be able to wander about - in a business park with major road works in progress too.

Superb room and excellent staff, so helpful in planning a day's itinery. The restaurant was superb and the house wine more than satisfactory. The waiter took the time to recommend which bottles to buy in town to take home. The area is undergoing a lot of construction and makes this location isolated but a quick check with the great receptionist... More

The hotel was disappointing compared to others in the Novotel chain. The good points are that it is well located for a stopover and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff on the front desk were also very friendly. The bad include the less than clean and very small swimming pool which was a let down and the food... More

A standard Novotel with the parking area and the reception recently redone giving it a fresher look. Staff was very kind and compared with other Novotel the people from the Restaurant were really nice. Rooms are the usual standard stuff, just enough to sleep well. It is time Novotel reviews the plastic bathrooms into something a bit more in line... More

On arrival at the hotel reception , bar and dining areas look stunning very modern and bright . The rooms however do not match this . We booked a standard room so maybe the higher grade rooms are better but it was very dated . Woodchip wallpaper on the walls . It was small the window didn't open but it... More
