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

This hotel Watson our tour and I didn't care for the rooms. A pull out bed was the extra bed in the room and no one likes to sleep on a sofa bed. If the room says 2 beds it should be 2 beds not a bed and a sofa bed. Toilet was in a separate room just when you... More

Not in the centre of Caen although direct connection with tram line A (19mn to the train station, for example), large car park, excellent breakfast with a rather large choice, very helpful people in general, good value for money but just an average old fashioned Novotel in fact

Loved this hotel. It was a decent distance from the heart of the action. Nice rooms and really modern lobby. The staff was friendly and we really enjoyed our stay here. You can easily walk to William the Conquerors castle or the Caen Memorial. Abbey aux Dames is just down the hill and is beautiful.

Stayed with a group. One room was infested with bed bugs. Front desk wasn't to alarmed when we told them. We were however. Rooms were alright. Bugs ruined the stay though. In fact put a bit of a damper on whole trip as we were worried and had to take precautions.

This is an excellent hotel for an overnight or business stop. Clean, well equipped, simple with free wit-fi and water / colas in the rooms. Decent restaurant and a nice little lobby bar. Only stayed for a single quick night but definitely recommend.
