A well situated hotel with good free parking and easy to find using sat nav. The town centre and bus station are a short walk either by going through the park or via the road, as is the harbour area and beach. The restaurant was very good and the staff, particularly Henri, were helpful and attentive. The breakfast was excellent,... More

Conveniently located close the the center, only a 10 minute walk to the harbour. It's a Novotel, so if you are familiar with this chain you know excactly what to expect. It's not the latest version of the Novotel room desigh, but still OK. We staid here in August - peak season in La Rochelle - and were able to... More

Great location on the edge of a Park and only a 10 minutes walk into town. Satnav address puts you straight on it although it doesn't look as though it does take you through the park. Avoid the Bar as a it's expensive with a pint and a half of lager is over €11 which even for a hotel is... More

Travelling with two of our grandchildren, we stopped in La Rochelle for a couple of days. From our arrival to departure the staff were always friendly and available. The location is ideal a 10-15 minute walk from the beach and old port. Our room was not massive but certainly more than adequate, We ate in one night and were impressed... More

We have just returned from our holiday and spent three nights at the Novotel in La Rochelle. The hotel has a very good location - on the edge of a park leading to the centre and the beach area. It was easy to find and has a large car park for guests. The room was a good standard and whilst... More

We checked in for 2 family rooms. We found the service good, with helpful directions and knowledgeable staff directions. We found the hotel a bit tricky to find as its down a one way road, but eventually picked it up on the gps. Its near the port of La Rochelle (about a 10 min walk) so was quite convenient. We... More

A really great hotel with very helpful staff. A ten minute walk to La Rochelle beach , a fifteen minute stroll to the town and quayside restaurants. Next to a large park there is space to run the kids. The hotel has a small pool and though this means there are occasionally noisy kids and inconsiderate parents it is has... More

Great location close to La Rochelle centre. Rooms clean, staff friendly and very helpful. Very relaxed stay here for two nights. Little play area and xbox in lounge area to occupy the kids was great. The only thing I would say is the pool area could be a bit cleaner.
