This Novotel in comparison to the one in Caen is excellent. Clean room. Very convenient situation close to La Rochelle centre. Decent value. Only downside is overpriced breakfast which is just not worth the money.

Stayed here on a stop over heading down the west coast of France. Nice enough hotel in a good little location a short walk to town. Room smelt a bit like stale cigarettes which was a shame but due to just staying the one night weren't going to complain. Wouldn't stay for any longer than a night as the price... More

Nice hotel situated a short walk from La Rochelle centre. Staff were efficient and friendly. Had a problem in room on first evening and staff immediately arranged a fix. Pool is small but it's a short walk to the beach anyway. Not worth paying extra for the pool unless you have kids.

After a swim we ordered lunch & a couple of beers quite pricey but your in a hotel. Our room was a family... More

My family (2 adults and 2 teens) stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of August as a stopover for our holiday further south of France. On arrival we were pleased to find a space in their car park close enough to reception which was handy as we had 4 bikes with us. Looked like the majority of cars parked... More

We stopped at the Novotel for 2 nights on our way back from the Dordogne. It's a perfect base from where to explore the city. Roommates are competitive for a major city and we paid €300 euros for 2 nights at the height of summer. Decent breakfast, comfortable rooms and great swimming pool (for the kids).

Well placed and nice atmosphere. A busy summers evening had a cosmopolitan mix of customers. Warm and welcoming for children and parents alike, plus a dog. The hotel is comfortable with good A/C and lots of (height unrestricted) parking for cars. The short walk to La Rochelle town centre is pleasant and easy to navigate. Obviously lots of of choices...

We stayed in a pleasant room overlooking the park, top floor which was very quiet. It is a short walk 10 mins to the port area, with free parking at the hotel which was helpful after a long journey. Staff were welcoming and friendly. Nice swimming pool and restaurant.
