After a day in the car you can cool down in the pool. We booked 2 nights so the next day we took the tram (stop in front of hotel) into the city. Bordeaux is nice. Worth a visit. At the end of that day we took a dive in the pool right before it closes at 10 pm. Room... More

Excellent hotel with secure car parking. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Our superior room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. We stayed here for two nights while we were running the Medoc Marathon. The Novotel had organised early breakfasts for guests the morning of the marathon, plus the room was well equipped with a fridge, kettle and coffee... More

the hotel was a typical Novotel. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were reasonably comfortable. The bar was OK. The down side for me was the distance from the town centre - about 20 minutes by tram - it costs 6 euro return and the tram was frequent and convenient but I would have preferred a hotel... More

Good morning, Thank you so much for your comment after your stay at Novotel Bordeaux Lac. Actually, our hotel is in outskirts of the downtown. So it is not possible to visit the city on foot. Tramway is a really good compromise. We are sorry that our hotel did not meet your expectation to this point. Kind regards, Kristoph Leroux More

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).

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
