We stayed here two nights while exploring the Normandy Region of France. It is located off the major highway, which makes it convenient if you have a car. I would not recommend it for travelers who are traveling by rail. The rooms are clean, modern, quiet and spacious. Breakfast is not included in the room charge but available for extra... More

In a throwback to my own childhood french family holidays we used Novotel as a stopover before driving down to the Vendee. Arrived in Caen at 21.30 and left the ferry terminal in what can only be described as a tropical storm! Horrendous driving conditions, thank goodness the hotel is only 25 minutes from the port! On arrival reception staff... More

I've read mixed reviews about this Novotel and to be honest, you are getting good value and a good night's sleep. We checked in on a Monday evening and were in our room within 10 minutes. Unfortunately we were allocated a smoking room, but after a brief word at reception, we were moved without argument. Hotel is close to the... More

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
