We decide to spend the afternoon and night in Le Havre (on our way back to the UK from the Vendee) and booked the Novotel because they are always reliable. I also did not know Le Havre having only driven through it from the ferry before; both did not disappoint. Arrived outside the hotel and immediately got sent to the adjacent 'Parking de la Gare' (don't be frightened by the charges as the hotel has an arrangement, so pay at reception not in the machines). Reception staff were helpful and had followed my email request to have adjacent rooms for us and our children. After checking out the rooms (exactly as one expects in a Novotel, including the international TV channels that a previous reviewer bizarrely could not find???!) a helpful receptionist suggested we explore the new shopping mall opened in the former dock warehouses opposite. Loads of shops, art exhibits, restaurants (including a Japanese but we ended up with pizza to suit the children), play areas and even a cinema. We even went back the next morning before catching the ferry. Did not eat in the hotel but did have a nightcap in the bar. Excellent staff, great hotel and we had a fun time in Le Havre. The latter is not as beautiful as some of the French coastal towns but has an interesting maritime history and we were lucky enough to see the enormous Cunard ship Queen Elizabeth in dock.
