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

Novotel doesn't generally disappoint and our family stay (with two very young children) was no exception. Staff were friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to accommodate us at dinner time. Location is good for exploring La Rochelle with reasonable sized rooms, a swimming pool and large car park. There's some cosmetic work requiring attention - mainly outside... More

The location is great- in the middle of a park and close to the centre ville. The car parking is great and hotel can be found easily. Staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent - lots of variety, sausages, bacon, eggs, and lots of different breads, fruits, etc. We were a family of four- 2 adults and 2... More

We stayed for one night at the Novotel La Rochelle. It is a modern, clean hotel. Staff are very friendly and all speak numerous languages. There is ample, safe, parking off the road. The rooms are a good size, with large comfy beds and quality bedding. We booked a deal that included breakfast, otherwise I think breakfast could work out... More
