We stayed here for 3 nights during August 2014. The hotel was as you would expect from other Novotel hotels in France. Reasonable rooms, clean etc. There was free parking and a small pool which was open until late (I think 9 or 10pm). They don't have a gym which is a shame. The breakfast was good, although it did...

Just about a ten minute stroll from the old port and all it's bustle and restaurants. Great place to explore La Rochelle and surrounding area from. Room we had was fresh and clean. Breakfast abundant and tasty.

Brilliant spot right on the park near the centre of town, ten minutes walk will get you most places you need to be. Lovely park to walk through on the way also. Friendly staff and helpful. Breakfast was good with good coffee and selection of food. Would definitely stay here again.

We decided to stay in a more conventional hotel in La Rochelle, having stayed in apartments and B&Bs during a seven week holiday in France. It was a good decision. The room was quite spacious and the bed was really comfortable. The washroom was also large, with plenty of towels. It was quite busy during our stay but we found... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night, the rooms are very spacious and clean, the surrounding fantastic, the menu in the restaurant is pretty average, I would not recommend going for the half board and their set menu is really not a good one. It is near the land marks so good place to leave the car and walk... More

I stayed here with my family for one night on may way to La Tremblade. It is very well located in the centre of a park adjacent to the town centre. it is a pleasant, short walk to town. The room was fine, nice an clean, no issue there. The check-in was also quite pleasant. The pool is very small... More

This is our fourth stay at this hotel. Rooms could do with a bit of a makeover. Can't complain about the standard of housekeeping or indeed the bar staff headed by Henri who along with his colleagues work tirelessly to make your stay welcoming. Disappointing menu if you decide to use the restaurant in the evening, also the hotel was... More

The staff everywhere in this hotel are as friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and are cleaned everyday. We only ate breakfast here which is a buffet and it is all kept fresh and there is a great choice. The restaurant is clean and although they give you a closing time for breakfast they seem to still let you carry on... More
