“Clean and comfortable”
Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

This hotel has a lot of positives - rooms are large with good services, and are very clean and comfortable. However, like many hotels in the town, it is quite a distance from the nicest area of town where there are the quaint narrow streets, nice bars and restaurants. If you are ok with a good 20 minute walk and make sure you know which direction to go in then you will be fine.

Stayed May 2013, traveled as a couple

The hotel is a good 15 minute walk from the cathedral, and is actually mid-way between Clermont and Montferrand. The hotel is modern and in good condition, with large, well-equipped rooms (big bed and a settee) and with a small kitchen area with kettle, microwave and fridge. They are called suites, but have only one main room.
The breakfasts are good, although there seemed to be more people than tables when we stayed in early May. It must be quite a bun fight in the peak season.
The car park is secure, with some spaces are ground level (very handy for mobility-impaired guests) and more underground. The daily parking rate is 12 Euros.
Outside, the pavements have the usual French covering of dog mess, but no worse than anywhere else. I don't know how a supposedly civilised society is prepared to put up with it.

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook a main road at the front. Ask for one at the back.

I was in Clermont Ferrand for 4 nights on business in April 2013. The rooms were surprisingly big and nice (especially for Europe). I will use this hotel again when I return to Clermont in the future.

I use this hotel for business travel because it's convenient for work. The rooms are larger than standard French hotels, so if you're there for a few days, it feels more comfortable. It looks and "feels" clean which is more than can be said about some other hotels in CFE. Room rate and Breakfast is pricey, so if I was paying for it myself, I wouldn't. There are cheaper hotels in CFE, but you will notice the quality difference. The tram stop is right outside and easy to use to get to Place de Jaude or around that area.

We've stayed at plenty of Novotels around Europe. Although Clermont-Ferrand is not a top tourist destination, I would certainly recommend staying at this hotel if you're in town. Reasonably comfortable beds - including the cots we had for our teens. There's a sliding divider for an ounce of privacy (or if you want to make the "bedroom" separate from the "office" area. Love that there are 3 sinks in the room (1 in WC, 1 in bathroom and 1 near bar/coffee maker/fridge). Also love that there is a separate shower (with a full door!) and bathtub. Everything was clean and in good working order. Staff was friendly and spoke English. Good breakfast - nothing out of the ordinary except for an fresh orange juicer. Hotel is conveniently located next to a tram stop - although walking dowtown is not far. Would definitely recommend.

Be careful. Suite in this case is not what is normally considered in all the world. Weak points: no air conditioning working, third and fourth lits very poor, internal space in the room can be improved, WC separate from the bathroom. In my experience as a business traveller, may be the worste four star.

This is the 2nd year that we have stayed here en route to the UK for Xmas. Its well worth signing up to the 'Accor Club' because there's usually an offer on around this time (they email around the end of Nov) for 50% stays - this reduces the cost of this place from €100-ish to €50-ish and thus excellent value. Skip the breakfast at €14 - buy a pain au raisin from the boulangerie next door and make your own coffee in the room.
The rooms are spacious and do 'what it says on the tin'. Clean, comfortable and everything works. Kettle provided, but bring your own coffee sachets and / tea bags. Ask for secure parking (€10) - its worth it.
CF is a bit of a restaurant desert - even taking a tram to the Place Jaude failed to yield much choice, but that's not the fault of the hotel!
