This hotel is perfect for the ferry as it is only a short drive away and we stayed here for our last night in France to catch the early ferry at 8:30am. The hotel is also only a short drive from the centre of Caen which is lovely, we visited the war museum here which is well worth a visit.... More

It is a Novotel, the same as any other in France. I believe they grow them in special tanks! Everything functions (except the Aircon :( ). Very convenient for the ferry to Pompey BUT reader beware..... Don't order a shandy! 2 x shandies cost €8.40. Yes they charged for 4 drinks (2x lemonade + 2 x beers). On to more... More

One night stay after arriving late in the evening from the ferry (about 20 mins drive). Spacious, very clean room, very comfortable bed and excellent shower. Sofa converted to a third bed for my teenage son. Room also included tea/coffee making facilities and a small fridge with complimentary bottled water. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. Free wifi. All just... More

We stayed in this hotel because of it's proximity to Caen(lots to see here) and the normandy beaches - couldn't have been better. Excellent hotel room, clean and roomy for 4 people. We will definitely stay here again.

We had a spacious room with a queen or was it king bed and two bedside shelves. There was a large desk with a swinging top that could be swung to make a right angle therefore giving more desk space. There was a two-seater sofa, a desk chair and a suitcase stool. An electric kettle was provided, much appreciated, but... More

Train and hotel were part of a package for deciding upon Caen to visit the Normandy region. My previous experience with Novotel was excellent yet found the room in this hotel not yo meet with the usual Novotel quality. Thinking there would be separate beds for three people only to learn the couch provided the two other beds which were... More

We enjoyed our stay and would return but the amenities are really only 3 star. The reception area, restaurant and public areas have been quite attractively modernised but the rooms and corridors are a bit 'tired'. The carpets and general decor need a face lift. Our Superior room was pleasingly large and quiet with a window opening onto a grassed... More

I wasn't originally going to write a review as we stayed at Novotel as part of a group and I was sharing a room and didn't experience the locality etc but here goes. The staff are very friendly and there are welcome drinks most nights but it is chilled water and choice of lemon syrup cordial or black currant syrup... More

Don"t judge a book by its cover...this place does not look very promising from the outside, but it is very nice inside.The staff are friendly and helpful. The food served at the restaurant is pretty good, although we did not eat the breakfast there. The rooms are comfortable. The bathroom set up is a little odd, with the toilet in... More
