This hotel is just far enough out to be able to walk into the centre of La Rochelle, but far enough out to be able to park easily in the car park, which was a must for us.The room was big and clean.We did not use the bars or restaurants so can't comment on that, but we had an enjoyable... More

Nearby the old town. Nice hotel, great breakfast buffet (16e/adult, kids for free). Rooms spacious and comfortable. Clean. Very near from an animal park which was very nice. The swimming pool was heated and very nice. It was also cleaned every day.

Thanks Novotel - I had a problem with my booking which the hotel promised to resolve - and did, even though my stay was months later and I was concerned I'd have to press them. Enjoyed our 4 night stay, rooms were comfortable and quiet, loved the pool (but NB not really suitable for very young children as it is... More

The younger chap in reception is fantastic and a credit to the hotel. After that, it gets a bit flabby. Service in the restaurant is terrible - slow, diffident. Food is actually very good. Bed is one of the most uncomfortable things I have ever slept on. Pillows are lumpy and nasty. Bedlinen smells musty. Breakfast is ok but service... More

The hôtel has a very huge parking which is quite appreciated when you travel by car. It's close to the city center (at a walking distance though a park). The swimming pool is also good even if small (better than nothing). The rooms are quite confortable. A very good experience and probably the best quality price ratio of La Rochelle

Having stayed here in 2014 we returned for one night whilst visiting the Aquarium in La Rochelle. We were once again impressed with the location, 15 minute walk to the old harbour. The room was excellent and the staff were very friendly. Our grandchild spent most of his time in the pool and the games room.

Stayed here 3 nights. Warm welcome from desk staff who were also helpful in providing information on sightseeing. Large, airy room overlooking carpark, so no view, but hotel is a short walk through a very pretty park to the main areas of la Rochelle. Decent sized bathroom and a separate toilet. Good amenities and nice towels, all freshened daily. Very... More

During our extended trip through beautiful France, we had occasion to compare several hotels of this Accor brand, which was supposed to have been renewed and revitalized. Well, not here. Although enjoying a nice location in midst of a beautiful park and only minutes away on foot from the center of things at the old port, the property lacks maintenance... More

This hotel was a very good choice for us. Location was excellent - next to lovely park through which we walked to the old town, beach and the bus station pleasantly and quickly. We caught bus from airport 1 euro 30 each way - very easy. La Rochelle was very busy and it was great to be in a hotel... More
