Stayed one night in La Rochelle Centre enroute to Olzonac, and found the hotel to be well suited for our requirements. Rooms basic, but very clean and comfortable, staff at reception very helpful and friendly. Very quick check in (why cannot more hotels get this right??). Good recommendations for dinner in nearby restaurant. Good parking.

We stayed in this hotel for eight nights when we went to La Rochelle. Our room was a good size with air conditioning. The maid service was excellent with clean towels if you want every day and your bed made. The location of the hotel was lovely right in the middle of a giant park! There was a good supermarket...

If planning to stay at this hotel be aware that if your sat nav tries to take you to it via the old port you will run in to problems as a lot of the streets are now pedestrian only and it took us 40 mins to find our way there. However once we arrived it is a good hotel,reception... More

The staff at the Novotel are friendly and welcoming, as well as very forgiving to someone like me who decides he wants to resurrect his schoolboy French! I think that they appreciated the attempts but, if they did not, they hid it well. The hotel is a 10 minute ride by taxi costing about 15 Euro, although a regular bus... More

The Novotel is situated on the edge of a park less than 10 minutes walk from the main tourist attractions of the vieux port, yet is very quiet and calm. From the outset our visit was a success, being met at reception by a very friendly and pleasant Irish lady. The room was superb, well appointed and spotless. Breakfast was... More

Generally the stay was good. This was because of the excellent access to town, tidy rooms and nice bar area. However the decor was dated upstairs and in the room, the outside entrance garden area was untidy and unsightly. I think if your main need is convenient access to town or for business then here is great, if it is... More

This hotel is easy to find, close enough to walk through the beautiful gardens to get to the harbour/town and quite comfortable, we had to book two rooms as they did not have any family rooms but they were comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful and the parking was free. We enjoyed our one night

Location is excellent! Very close to the city center and Vieux Port and in the same time really calm. In fact it is located in the parc! The beds are really comfy, we slept like at home. The room and bathroom were clean. The staff was nice and willing to help. The free WiFi connection was good without interruptions. If... More

The hotel is lovely in a beautiful settling, the centre of La Rochelle being a quaint village with historical places to view, with otters eating around a small lake.
