“Good value for a stop-over”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

For a mid-range hotel that you can book in advance at good rates this is well worth staying at.

I stayed with my wife, 2 children and pet dog. The parking is secure, the rooms are well furnished and have decent bathroom and amenities and the staff are friendly and helpful.

The breakfast is a good one with a decent range of cold food, bread, yoghurt, drinks and some hot food. We especially appreciated that they set up outside for us so we could have our pet dog with us instead of leaving her in the room. It made a real difference.

The hotel is a little shabby generally and could do with a little modernising. But i paid a good advance price for a room for the whole family with breakfast and so feel we got very good value.

the Novotel chain is the best one we stay at and i would recommend others to think of this chain if in this price range.

Having not traveled much in the last decade, I was unsure of what to expect from a "chain" hotel. My booking was based on location, cost and some of the other reviews, however, we stayed at this location on our drive down to the south of France and on the return leg and both experiences were pleasant.

The rooms were clean and certainly roomy enough for a family of 4.

The staff were friendly and helpful and their English was superb.

The breakfast was of a good quality. On the return leg we ate in the restaurant begrudgingly due to timings however this was the most surprising aspect of the stay, the meal was reasonably priced and of a very good quality. The children ate all of their meals. Bonus.

I would certainly stay here again and with the chain in general.

The Fly was a great film if a somewhat gruesome remake. We discovered our own version whilst doing the proverbial stopover en route to the south of France in mid July 2013.
As per previous reviewers this is a slightly out of town circa 1960's low rise concrete block hotel, conveniently located though thanks to being opposite a tram stop, so travelling into the centre of Le Mans isn't a problem (we got a free ride both ways despite numerous attempts to get tickets).
We had a decent size family room in the nondescript type of chambre major French chains operate these days, ie everything was good, if unmemorable....or nearly - after our aforementioned trip on the tram we arrived back to find the ceiling covered in tiny flies. Hmm, not had this before, so what shall we do? Ring reception (relocate to another room? It's past midnight now, can't be bothered), so out comes a magazine and lets play swat the fly!!
This seemed like fun for the first twenty minutes, but then became a real chore.
However, after about an hour we got them all, a menagerie of tiny flies dead on the carpet. Down the toilet they went and trust me, we slept uncomfortably (with our mouths closed hopefully, never has the phrase catching flies seemed more appropriate)!
Obviously this kind of event clouds your memory regarding the general demeanour of the hotel. We recall the the staff being welcoming, the pool area pleasant and an overall impression of an okay kind of place.
All of this though was somewhat diminished by the little Jeff's overrunning our room....
The Fly 3 anyone?

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments regarding your stay in our hotel.

You certainly see me sorry to learn that your stay was not up to your expectations.

I would like to apologize on behalf of the hotel and its team for the unusual problem you encountered.
In this situation our standard procedure would have been to provide you with another room as soon as our reception desk would have been advised of the presence of flies in your room.

Looking forward to welcoming you again at Novotel Le Mans, I send you my sincere greetings.

Like other people we used this hotel for two nights overnight stay on our way to south west France. I agree with other reviews, clean good size rooms. Pleasant gardens, swimming pool and terrace. We walked into LeMans centre, it took about 50 mins but worthwhile. We left the car securely parked at the hotel, which is a real bonus.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the car park and road, but it was still quiet
