“Great base & good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We stayed at the Newport Bay for 2 nights having got the ferry from Portsmouth (to Caen). It was a 3 and a bit hour drive and we arrived at the hotel around 11-ish in the morning ready to hit the park.

The room was available upon arrival, and was large with a balcony (Admiral floor). Breakfast was toast, ham, croissants, cheese and cereals. The hotel is about a 10/15minute walk to the park entrances, through Disney village (shops, restaurants, starbucks etc)

Mickey visits the hotel at 8, 9 and 10 o'clock where you can queue to have your photo taken with him - like anything, be prepared for a long wait especially at weekends!

Overall a great place to stay and would happily return.

Bright and airy and above all clean and modern rooms. Lovely staff and very knowledgeable and helpful. Added to the magic of Disney. Would recommend this place. We were welcomed at reception and given directions to out 5th floor room. We quickly freshened up and made our way to the Disney Studios. A quick tip-do not ride Crush's Coaster after lunch!

Room Tip: Ask for balcony with view.

We are just back after a fantastic stay at Newport bay hotel . After reading other trip advisor reviews I was skeptical and uneasy about having booked this particular hotel but how wrong they were. The hotel is spectacular!! Huge magical and very very Disney. The staff from check in to check out were so helpfull abd friendly . Rooms very clean and nautical themed which my 3 boys loved.Rooms serviced daily and toiletries/towels refreshed . The restaurant for dinner and breakfast was busy but comfortable with lots af staff on duty. The buffet was replenished constantly and there was a big choice for any picky eaters in your group. The Disney village is a 5 minute stroll from the back door of the hotel and even when little legs are tired after a say in the parks it's a pleasure not to have shuttle bussesand queued etc to contend with just a quick stroll.
Ignore the bad reviewers . They are not talking about this hotel!!

After 2 stays at Disneyland before , in Disney hotels me and my mother had a fair idea what we going to get .
Yes I looked on the trip advisor to see what the new port bay was like , and got a bit worried about what we were in for .
Yes the hotel could do with up dateing , and there is some work need to be done on the outside of the building but do you really going to Disney to look at a hotel or to Disneyland to have fun .
I stayed in a normal standard room , and had breakfast in the hotel . It was not as bizzy when we went at 7am as we where told at check in . From 8-9am it got very bizzy but as we saw the cues soon died down very quickly .
If you buy your meals out , there not cheep at around 30 erios per meal and drinks extra about 5 erios for a coke or 6.80 for a glass of wine , kids 17 erios . Most restrants are buffet , unless you just want ice-cream , snacks or sweets .

The hotel staff was the best we've had at Disney , the hotel was clean . And really nice and defo better than the chayanne .

The only complaint we had that we found the French people in the Disney parks to be pushie and rude . A few times cueing for rides or in cues for being served in shops get shoved even by the kids .

We booked into the honeymoon suit of this hotel for 5 days the room cost a a lot to stay in per night and we expected to get a nice room however when we got to our room there was blood stains on the bed sheets we called down to house cleaning and it took about 40 mins for them to come up and change our sheets.
Each day when the cleaners came into clean it was pot luck how much it got cleaned and what was left behind for us on two days out tea and coffee bar was left empty and when calling down to get some milk and tea bags we were told to go to the bar and buy some even with this being free for our room.
The room was very poor for the price the bathroom tiles were old and the bathroom had lots of things broken and the floor looked like it needed to be replaced.
The bedroom was old and wallpaper was peeling from the walls.
The carpet was stained and had marks on it, i dread to think what they were.
The staff were very rude and very ignorant towards the English
When we booked in we were told that as we were in the honeymoon suit it came with a free news paper in the morning and other bits however we did not get any of this and when i asked where our paper was the reception person replied well its pointless you having a paper as you dont speak or read french!.
Over all i wish i had of stayed in a 1 star Bed and Breakfast i think i would have had better service and a better room.

Room Tip: Dont stay at this hotel if you can help it

just got back from a weekend at this hotel - great location for the parks but the room badly needs upgrading. The bathroom in particular had black mould on many tiles, the bath was discoloured, the bath tap old with limescale although on the plus side there was always hot water. The door to the safe was hanging half off and the melamine shelf was chipped . There was a underpowered hairdryer but no tea coffee facilities I expect they want you to spend more money. The tv was probably at least 15 years old dont they have flat screens. Breakfast was ok get there either early or late or you could be in a long queue, its efficient with a adequate selection of meats croissants fruit etc. Dont think they ever hoover the public areas. For the money I expected better.

When we first checked into the Newport Bay Club hotel in Disneyland, one of the two adjoining rooms stank of cigarettes despite our request for non smoking. We asked to be moved and one and a half hours later were still waiting. Finally we got moved. We had just arrived and already the Disney experience was losing its gloss. We missed the lunch that my daughter had prepaid for; which isn't a big deal for us but was a disaster for the three kids under 8. We found a snack bar where five basic sandwiches, three juices and two medium beers set back my son-in-law more than 55 euros. Hotel and rooms looked pretty tired on first impression; not really up to the mark considering the cost of the package.
After that; we thought maybe an early night and room service. Nope. No room service. The inclusive meals we bought as part of the package had to be taken elsewhere – not in our hotel.
During the course of the stay, the bits of debris on the floor became familiar. This wasn’t quite as annoying as the failure to replace soaps and shower gels as they were used up. I wonder if the management have considered whether the few cents they save by this penny-pinching is worth the huge annoyance caused to their guests? On the third evening I stormed the considerable distance to reception to demand replacements as it was the kids’ bath time. The reception staff member looked puzzled by my annoyance.

The breakfast was OK; the lack of choice was masked to some extent by the large volume of everything that was provided. Choice extended to croissant; pain au chocolat; cold meats; a little cheese; fruit salad and yogurt. Beverages included tea and coffee, hot chocolate and fruit juices.

Internet at the hotel didn’t extend to wi-fi in the rooms we were in – and in any event cost €4.50 an hour; which is certainly at the highest end of any internet access I have ever come across.

The hotel is enormous; and one shouldn’t be surprised to get a less-than-personal approach; queuing to get into restaurants etc. – and the proximity of Disney must mean that we should expect to pay more than the equivalent accommodation elsewhere. I don’t think, though, that the overwhelming impression should be one of disappointment. I tried very hard to find the positive; and it was very child-friendly; they were very happy with the buffet breakfast service, and were happy to see the Disney characters in the foyer after breakfast.
