“A good reliable hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

We have stayed at this hotel on our travels through France a number of times. As are most French hotels they are dog friendly, staff are welcoming and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities. The pool is refreshing and of a good size, on our recent visit they had introduced a small gym and a sauna, I enjoyed the sauna very much as it is very new, towels, shower gels and robes and chilled bottles of water were provided too.
We dined outside in the evening, the dining area extends onto a terrace area. Breakfast is of a buffet style and offers a wide choice. The novotel really should improve the coffee they provide at breakfast, other than that we always have a most satisfactory stay.

Negative: rate was 118 euro for 1 night without breakfast. We got a room with a terrible smell and a stained carpet. In addition, the bed mini-bar was not funtioning and, never seen before, the shower gel had been dilluted with water. On the positive side: airco was powerful and gated parking.
Also a lot of trainees amongst staff, makes you wonder whether this is just another cost-cutting measure or whether the hotel really wants to give these young people an insight in "the luxurious world of Novotel"... Restaurant was ok, your average hotel restaurant.

This hotel is a modern well-run establishment. From check-in to check-out the staff were all smiling and helpful. A bonus in France!

Our room and bed were very comfortable with a view over the park at the back of the hotel. The breakfast room also has views of the trees and waterfall. Breakfast was buffet and very good. Parking is outside but the gates are closed at night. Our first Novotel experience and we shall seek them out in other towns now as we were very impressed.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the trees and park area.

The hotel is conveniently situated just off the highway but far-away enough to give the impression you are taking a proper break from driving. We used this hotel on the way to the alps for our annual family ski holiday. The views to the back looking onto a small park are very pleasant. As with other novotels the staff were welcoming and professional. The family room was fine for one night. The overall environment was very nice. The room and wc/shower were modern, clean and comfortable. We took the 'demi-pension' option with main meal and breakfast. On the negative side we found the breakfast area needed a clean when we arrived for breakfast. The breakfast choice was ok. Overall good value and we would recommend this hotel to other families.

We had a one night stay at this hotel during my visit to France. The Hotel is clean and comfortable and all required amenities are at place. However, the breakfast was not included in the price which itself seemed very high in the first place. However, the location was such that we could not find any other establishment in a walking distance. Overall a good brief stay.

We stayed overnight on our way to Spain and found the room, with a window that opens, to be clean and comfortable although the bathroom needs to be updated. As advised we booked a table for dinner in the restaurant but the service was very very slow. After waiting ten minutes we collected our own menus and then hi jacked a waiter who was passing to get a drink.
