Maybe my expectations are too high but at this price point in the market and the location. I took the advice on Trip Advisor. I was offered a deluxe room for an even higher price. Tired 1960's building, grubby decor, worn and threadbare furniture. The carpets we stained in the corridors, the room stank of that utilitarian generic lemon air... More

We stayed at this hotel during a visit to Normandy and were pleasantly surprised. The large bright rooms were inviting and well maintained. The breakfast was excellent with a good assortment of cereals, breads, meats and cheeses. Scrambled eggs (not well known to the French) and bacon/sausage also. Coffee, teas and hot chocolate warmed us up in the morning.

We planned the end of our holiday to be a final day in Caen before getting the ferry that night. The hotel was clean and comfortable.

The bed was so hard that I ended up with back pains for the rest of my holiday. The hall carpets can only be described as disgustingly dirty. The breakfast vastly overpriced. The poorest Novotel I have every stayed at.
