Novotel Chateau de Versailles

The hotel is fine but hardly 4 star. The towels are small, thin and grey, the toilet paper awful and I hate plastic glasses in the bathroom.
The toilets in the foyer were out of order with no alternative offered.
Wifi was free and hopeless, had to log on endlessly.
It's quite a long walk to the main entry of the Chateau.
What really annoyed me though was that we asked the woman at Reception if we could get to the Petit Trianon via Boulevard Saint Antoine the same road that the hotel is on. She said that the only entry was the main Chateau entry. We checked the web site which said that you could enter along Boulevard Saint Antoine and tried. Yes you can and it is only about 1 kilometre!

We've stayed in lots of novotels, in fact we thoroughly recommend them to families travelling in Europe. Hotel wise Versailles was standard Novotel fare, clean, friendly, relaxed, pretty good quality and great value for money. What went wrong was the restaurant service and this is something we have seen before on occasion in French novotels.

The restaurant staff seem to get bored/tired/lose interest after 9pm. We arrived with two sleepy children for our 9pm booking, ordered quickly and at 10.00 our starters arrived, our drinks order was forgotten, our mains turned up at 10.45, our second drinks order was forgotten, then our desert order was forgotten and finally we had to leave without paying because there was nobody left to pay (we owned up in the morning).

I wouldn't let this experience put you off the hotel though - it is good, well priced and extremely convenient for the Chateau - just dine early.

The only real positives I can offer are that the room appeared to be clean and the staff members we interacted with were quite nice and helpful.

However, the hotel is tired, dated, and not terribly convenient to anything in Versailles. Compared to other Novotel's that I have stayed at, the property is quite old and in need of a bit of refurbishment. Although it was clean, it just wasn't very modern and comfortable.

At least by my standards, nothing was in walking distance. We needed to use the car to get to restaurants and to the Chateau.

I am appreciative of Novotel having the family rooms for families traveling with children. It is amazing how difficult it is to find a single room for four people in European hotels. Novotel has a pull out bed system, sort of what we would call a trundle bed, that is adequate for the kids to each have their own bed.

We found the hotel really easy to find and parking was available when we got there. Yes you have to walk up some stairs but you can drop off in front if you want. Reception staff always really friendly. Our 21 month old little girl got a toy on check in which she loved!
Room was a good size and had all the facilities we needed including a bath for our little one. We had room service which was a great burger but slightly underwhelming spaghetti bolognaise. Location great to walk into Versailles and to get the train to Paris. We were there for the Tour de France so all good! Would recommend and stay again if we came to Paris.
