The tram station is 2 min walk from the hotel, 15 min ride to town centre, 1.5 euros per person one way, buy ticket from machine at station (coins or card), frequent trams (every 10 mins or so). Hotel is modern and clean.... More

Fairly nice and modern we had no complaints, it did the job for for us. It is just a place to stay outside of the main town which doesn't cost a fortune and gives you easy access in and out. The trams are great, they run regularly and cost €1.5! Staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. The rooms are standard... More

We stayed for 1 night and on reflection 2 nights would've been better to make more use of this great hotel and to explore Bordeaux. A bit clinical looking from exterior but fabulous inside-very clean and modern. Fantastic location very convenient for tram into Bordeaux (def worth a trip). Good rooms, smallish but nice pool area (towels provided), great facilities... More

Spotless rooms and a good size for two people to share, a sofa can be made up into a bed for families. We used the hotel as a base for touring Bordeaux and didn't eat here. There is a tram stop right outside and the cost at the time was 1.5 euro for a ticket right to the city centre.... More

Stopped here for one night en route to Portugal. It would make an excellent base for exploring the area as a holiday in its own right. I've stayed in a variety of Novotels across Europe and this rates as one of the better ones. Lovely setting next to the lake, but easily accessed from the motorway. All a hotel really... More
