“Below average, tired, stained, dirty”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2011

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.

We stayed at this hotel on our way to Spain and again on our way back. We got a good internet price and our daughter was very happy with the pool.The hotel is outside the city near a huge shopping center so you have to have a car to visit Avignon. The big+ is the pool. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant was ok, but if you want an unforgettable culinary experience you rather search elsewhere

We stayed at this Novotel as it is located near by Avignon, a very pleasant midsize town in the Provence.
The hotel staff gave us a warm welcome, there were soft drinks available. The room that I booked online two days earliers was available and excellent.
We took a swim in the pool and I played tennis with my son.
A 10 min drive and we were in the centre of the town.
Recommended, for sure !
