The hotel was clean, comfortable and spacious and although on the outskirts of Bordeaux, the tram stop was just outside and the tram took us right into the heart of the city - cheap and simple to use. We were there in a hot spell and really appreciated the small swimming pool. No shops nearby but a couple of restaurants...

First class experience in a hotel with an excellent staff who were very friendly. Everyone worked hard to make our stay an enjoyable and worthwhile experience. The reception, house and dining room staff were great to deal with and I would recommend the hotel to anyone.

We stopped here as a quick stop on route to Madrid and wished we had longer. Lovely hotel with friendly staff. Rooms were nice and clean with all the facilities. Not a great deal to do in the immediate area but plenty of hotels with restaurants/ bars to have a meal. A regular tram, we timed at every 20 minutes,...

This was a good location on the outside of the city. Not my favourite place to stay. Rooms were very hot with no temperature control. No big screens on windows. This may be normal in France though. We had dinner in the restaurant and the steak had more Fat and Grisel then my shoe. But heard the burger was good.

Booking a night in Novotel you don't expect a amazing experience and on that point I was not disappointed. Check in and check out was fast, and bed was good. I didn't appreciate the olfactive experience, first in the lobby : very strong ambiance parfum, then in the stairs, carpets were so dirty that you could smell it, finally in...

Stayed here last August with my Husband (1 night only) on our return trip to England, after a lovely tour of France and Spain. On arrival at the hotel there was a very rude French man trying to push in front of other visitors at the reception desk and the staff did nothing. Useless they were. When we eventually got...

The hotel has been remodeled (I think about 2 years ago). Very good value for money, comfortable rooms, nice restaurant and bar area. All the people working there are pleasant and very helpful and will go out of their way to find solutions to your questions or problems. The parking is well secured, which is a plus in Bordeaux. Overall,...
