“Never disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

This is the third time we stay at this Novotel. It never disappoints. We use it as a stop-over while travelling from Spain back to the UK. Service at reception is fast and efficient. The rooms are always fresh, well appointed and spotless. Food at the restaurant, although simple, is always excellent and is good value. My only grumble would be that you have to pay to park the car (although this is not excessive).

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Stayed here for one night on the way to the south of France. Rooms good size with nice modern bathrooms. Reception areas and bar all contemporary, clean and comfortable. Great outside pool area which was welcome following a day on the road. Only very minor faults as mentioned before is that it is a quiet area with not much about (but menu in hotel looked fine) and drinks very expensive (2 beers and 2 cokes=25 euro)

Stopped here on the way to Aix. Clean, well located, easy to find. Novotel is doing a great job catering to families- rooms that can sleep 4 (rare in France), treats for the kids, goodie bag upon checkout.

Nice, comfortable and quite rooms with efficient noise isolation. Rooms are equipped with efficient and silent air-conditionning.
Staff is very professional and helpful.
Restaurant is a good place for dining (many options with a perfect price/quality ratio)
Same thing for breakfast (15€).
The only negative point is that there is not a lot to do around the hotel (such as bars or restaurants).

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

I got there by mistake - I booked a room in a Novotel Confluence nearby and my mighty navigation got me to this hotel. As they had free rooms and they were even cheaper than the ones I booked, I stayed.
Hotel is nicely located, not quite in the city center but good communication nearby, with a nice view over the green area. Rooms are not too big but clean. Standard Novotel decoration - not fancy but comfortable. Nice bar and pool, good breakfast. Price wise very reasonable although in fact the parking is too expensive. I had a special offer (due to the weekend) = 16 EUR, normally it is 24,50 EUR per 24h (8EUR day rate and 16,50 night rate). Breakfast costs 15 EUR. Free wifi, which is appreciable. Overall nice hotel with nice staff.
