Arrived here in the pouring rain and having had a great stop off at an Ibis Styles the night before. This place is located really well in a nice wooded area near the main harbour. Room was ok but a bit small and with a ropey thermostat that seemed to only kick out cool air. Bathroom was ok but a... More

Novotel Hotel is situated in an excellent location within 10 minutes walk to the quay area where all the restaurants and bars are located. Rooms are excellent and in particular the 5th floor where we stayed was very quiet. Major plus especially if you are driving is the large car park which is also free with no daily charge like...

After a long drive of 400 miles through France , we happened to see the Novotel as we arrived at La Rochelle.. A welcome site: we were very tired and the receptionist was extremely friendly and welcoming. We checked In for two nights ( it was going to be three nights) but it was above budget at€135 per night plus... More

As usual with most chain hotels, their quality is at least 1 degree less that in any other country. The best is their location. Quiet and close enough to go walking to the city centre and harbour. The rooms are completely outdated and need a deep reform. The worse are the bathrooms. Too old and smelly. Clearly not meeting the... More

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
