The hotel is situated just outside the Bordeaux motorway ring-road, and has a large secure car park. Access to the center of Bordeaux is easy via the tramway which is 200 m from the hotel and takes about 30 minutes to Bordeaux St Jean station. The hotel is on the side of a small lake, and is within walking distance... More

Chose this hotel for its installations aimed at families: pool, lounge, location. It's out of central Bordeaux, but easily accessed by tram. The location has a huge commerce centre nearby: Ikea, supermarket, fnac, Leroy-merlin, etc. Very convenient. Staff was helpful, rooms new, spacious and clean. Plus: free parking.

Your average novotel business hotel. Rooms following the standard,nothing special but ok space and clean. The breakfast, restaurant and terrace are nice, bit above average. Good meeting rooms on site. Ok for business. p.s. situated at the lake sounds better thant that it is in reality :)

Novotel is our hotel chain of choice, and we have stayed here before. The hotel is situated overlooking the lac, and is about a five minute walk (max) from two tram stops leading into the town.

OK hotel with some minor and major failures. First: The DO NOT DISTURB-sign on my door means DO NOT DISTURB!!! The cleaning personel knocks on the door even if the DND-sign is up. When I didn't open they called from the reception and asked why I didn't open... DO NOT DISTURB!!! Second: In the "old" part of the hotel the... More

Really disappointed - this is maybe the worst review I have written. Here on business and paid 160E per night single occupancy and 15E breakfast. Reception is lovely, and the bar area. And thats it. There is one lift, so used the stairs often - very dirty and tired and smelt of urine. Corridors were tired and grubby. The standard... More

I took an executive room which includes minibar, Nespresso machine and bathrobes and superior products. I had a very good night sleep! I was initially worried when i noticed my room was right besides the elevator but the elevator was extremely silent and the room very soundproof.
