We chose the Novotel knowing we would be able to eat in the restaurant there having arrived fairly late on a Sunday evening. We got a taxi from the TGV station. If we had realised how convenient the shuttle bus was we would have taken that instead. Although the hotel perhaps lacks character by virtue of being so modern, it was a perfect choice. The staff were, without fail, pleasant and helpful - especially the man on reception when we arrived and the two young men who managed the bar and restaurant. Rooms are bright and modern although I'm not convinced of the value of the opaque wall between the bathroom and bedroom! We ate in the hotel restaurant several times. There is a great choice and the food is superb. I am not a wine expert (other than in that I drink plenty of it)but the Côtes du Rhône they serve is among the best I have had anywhere. Breakfast was also very nice. (The previous reviewer who had a basket of pastries must have had one of the alternative options to the full breakfast.)
The hotel is very well situated for the town and the railway station - from which we took trains to Nîmes, Orange and Arles.
I would definitely stay here again.
