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.

Situated just 10 minutes walk from the centre of La Rochelle. Clean and quiet room but no added luxuries. Tea and coffee making facilities. Bar is grim so is the restaurant although we chose not to eat there- can't comment on the food. Hotel has a pool that was more like a kids crèche. Views over park are good. If... More

Modern hotel close to everything but out of the way in the park so you are not in a busy area. Rooms adequate for your needs, breakfast catered for most. The weather became hot so the pool was a welcome attraction. Music festival was taking place during our visit and the town was very lively. All in all a good... More
