We stayed here for a night in mid August, as the campsite we were headed to could not fit us in till the day after the flight. We drove from Nimes airport, which took about 45 minutes - the hotel was just off the A9, bit tricky to actually get to - we could see it but couldnt find the entrance from the road at first but figured it after a couple of turn-arounds!
The hotel itself is nice -we had a family room which was fine for one night, but would not have been big enough for more than that for 4 of us. The swimming pool was a bonus and was quite busy, but the hotel provide towels and it was nice to laze by the pool for the afternoon after a very early flight.
The hotel is not really in the middle of anywhere - it's a bit like staying at a UK hotel that is on the outskirts of a retail or industrial area. Others have commented that the area was dodgy - I wouldn't say I noticed that, I just noticed that there didnt seem to be anything else around other than other hotels and a retail park across the road.
The restaurant was expensive - we stayed in a Novotel last year enroute to another campsite and this was the same, so is obviously a feature of Novotel restaurants. There are no bar snacks as such, and the meals were upwards of 15-20 euros, just for a burger. We headed out to find somewhere but ended up at the McDonalds round the corner when the kids saw the sign! The breakfast was nice, but again at 15 euros per adult it is only worth doing if you have kids as well, as the kids eat free.
If I was in the area and needed a stopover again, I'd definitely stay here again but think I would want somewhere more central if I was actually planning staying in the area for longer
