“Great rooms, dissapointing Breakfast”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Stayed here where on way north towards Calais. Good stopping off point just a short distance from A6 motorway exit. Probably just somewhere for one night really. Also good value petrol and local hypermarkets nearby - so fill up before rejoining motorway! Booked the room at last minute so no real deals available but price around normal novotel range. Room on 5th floor had obviously been recently refurbished so good bathroom with bath and reasonable shower over. Mini bar, safe etc flat screen TV and free wifi all great. Room clean and comfortable with lots of space, desk area (as usual no mirror over - why? could be a dressing table area otherwise have to stand by mirror outside bathroom... Beds good size and very comfortable. Towels in bathroom a bit skimpy and mean but otherwise fine. Noise from adjacent motorway is pretty incessant if you like sleeping with window open. The only real negative was breakfast which at 15 euros extra per person was pretty poor, run out of most things by 08.30 and no sign of replenishments for toast, scrambled eggs etc. What was there was ok but only warm rather than hot. Pastries good, juice concentrated not fresh. Coffee Ok. Good secure parking with gated entry and exit looked a bit like a compund but if that keep the thieves at bay then so be it! Restaurant has pretty terrace for nice summer days. Restaurant has interior conservatory extension, but not so nice when raining and thundery as it was the day we stayed. Dinner menu and food were fine with good selection, well cooked and some good local wines from international growers in the Rhone Valley featured by glass and half bottle and bottle

Room Tip: try to get higher floor (5th if poss) and away from motorway but not sure if that is really possible...

Ideal location for either visiting Valance or resting on the way home/south. Great service, friendly staff (even as the hotel & restaurant were fully booked). Very lovely terrace to dine or have a drink. Very quiet room. Also great value for parents with kids. Will come back (even without kids)!

The location is very nice with the river and small water falls. The staff is very kind. The hotel rooms were nice & clean.
We had a great time with the family at the pool.
We enjoyed the dinner and food quality was also great.

Nice hotel with a nice pool. There is a nice terrace at the restaurant where you can enjoy a little waterfall. The parking for the car is protected by fence and cameras. Free WiFi. Staff is friendly. Check in and out is very fast. Breakfast is OK. Don't forget to make reservations for diner when checking in. We stayed for the third time in this hotel with two kids in the same room as we did. This time they forgot the pillows for the beds for the kids and the room wasn't as clean as usually.
