The hotel proposes a big parking, a nice pool, a good bar and restaurant. The rooms are average with a separate bathroom and a separate toilet. The decoration is old and the walls too.

I stayed at the Novotel Sophia-Antipolis for business. You are close to Sophia-Antipolis businesses but far from everything else. Of note, it was however quite easy to get a cab at the hotel and get to Sophia-Antipolis in just few minutes. My stay was spot on: great WiFi, nice and comfortable room with view to a pool. The restaurant/bar was... More

Friendly service, refurbished rooms and free internet. All elements needed for a correct accommodation. You are in the middle of a green area with a great view. Try to get a room with a pool view. Breakfast and restaurant are descent. Rooms are correct.

Wonderful hotel. Beautiful and peaceful place to spend a good family time. Restaurant and swimming pool area are cosy and calm. Went for a birthday party and the hotel staff organized everything well. In other words sweet week-end... Thank you Novotel Sophia Antipolis Staff. I'll definitely come back for summer. Unfortunately bad weather 😔

I stayed here on business, I was dreading it to be honest as I had a terrible stay at the Ibis in Sophia Antipolis, I only picked the Novotel as it was round the corner from where I was working. However! I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the reception area. Nice modern feel to the place and very... More

Booked this hotel on Expedia for Antibes. Little did I know, the hotel was so far away from the city. We were there for two nights so wasn't insurmountable, but no dinner served, bus to and from Antibes was difficult, and the place served no dinner. You'll most likely need a car if staying here.

Stayed a week with the family and thoroughly enjoyed it. There's plenty of parking places, friendly staff, lovely pool and good food. It's set up on the hills north of Antibes - approximately a seven mile drive. It's sizable enough to have decent amenities but not too big to feel swamped. For us, it was just right with a bit...
