Modern hotel with reasonably sized rooms. Awkward to find parking entrance though. Good variety of food for breakfast. WiFi sporadic on my stay and poor choice of english channels on TV. Located close to motorway.

Free wi fi - with up to 3 devices... More

I have stayed in many Novotel Hotels in Europe, and this location had my favorite restaurant.

The hotel is a standard Novotel type of deco and facilities. Good and clean with spacious rooms, nice toiletries and overall good service. As usual, the breakfast is offered with a very good selection although the price for breakfast in my opinion is very expensive considering that there is only so much I am able to eat. Location is very... More
