“Good enough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

It is easy to find off the motorway and halfway between the Channel ports and the Med. The room was fine, the bed good, the water hot. DInner fine though no more, and there was a bar too. A nice garden where the dog could run. Staff friendly. We enjoyed it at the time.

Adding up the costs, however, it was not cheap. We got the room for 80 E but then paid 13 for the dog, breakfast would have been 30 for two so we skipped it, a light two course dinner came to over 50, and drinks were twice the price of an ordinary bar, though nibbles were included. Yes there are only two paper cups so you have to reuse them. One benefit is free Internet.

It's a little bit like a low cost airline. Avoid the extras and it is good value. Take the extras and pay the full price. It's fine either way provided you are aware of the choice you are making.

this Novotel - like all others can be relied upon to provide clean, modern rooms, comfy beds, helpful friendly staff and good locations.

Free enclosed parking, small but well maintained and not busy pool. All good. And the internal "corridor" in the rooms and extra door minimises noise from the hallways. In fact with the air con on we couldnt hear any noise.

Only issue we ever have with Novotel is the food. its expensive and the menu is not extensive. Also - breakfast is expensive - though if you have kids they eat free. But for 2 adults it would be £31 euros - or you can do what we did - went to the local supermarket and bought croissants and had the tea and coffee in the room - cost £8 euros for 4!!

We always look to see if there is a Novotel at all destinations as you can always rely on the standard of the rooms

There are only a few places in the area t stay and is popular. This is a wonderful stay over hotel. `not long term. If 1-2 days, stay here. Others less quality. This may be a tad more pricey bu not not by much. Worth it with service and quality of hotel. Dinner has amazing dining for hotel. Nice for couples or families. Nice after long journey. Hallways are dated but room nice for price level. You will feel welcome and more than safe. Ples in area border safety problems. Here is a level up. Nice find. Great stop over. If you want longer term, consider a different location. For 1-2 days in this area, you won't find better. not perfect, but compared to others, this is stylish and had great quality dinner waiting. Nice pool.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from highway.

Hotel location is great if you are travelling down to the south, around 2 hours south of Paris it was clean and rooms reasonable although relatively expensive.
Pool was well looked after and in good condition and made a great difference.
Choice of Food for both breakfast and dinner was good with excellent service at both.
