Maybe our very poor experience with this hotel is a factor of mistaken expectations. In Australia, Novotel are generally clean and in good condition.
This is not walking distance to Avignon, it is situated along a freeway in what I would call an industrial estate.
The first room we were offered was noisy with the sounds of the freeway creating a terrible hum through the room. After not leaving reception until they found another room, the second room was mouldy and bugs were on the windowsill and desk due to a window that would not close/lock properly . I went back to the desk and said no this won't do. In a hotel of this size, you think they could find one decent room. While we were waiting at the front desk, at least 4 coaches of hotel guests from tours unloaded.
A single couple was never going to have the same clout as a coach company. Eventually, I took a Novotel flyer that had been in the room, that said" if you are not satisfied, you don't pay" to the manager, who did find us another room.
We weren't interested in the pool or tennis courts, just a quiet clean room, near Avignon. It didn't tick any boxes for us.
