The Hotel is really average. From the outside the Building Looks good. Inside all Korridors Need renovation, especially the carpeting is a no go. The interior Needs more Attention. The bar staff is a catastrophie. No interest in the guest.

A good sized room on the ground floor made it easy for me to trundle in and out in my powered wheelchair. Shower good but, as is common, the bathroom floor was smooth and like an ice rink when wet - quite dangerous for me with my limited mobility.

This Novotel in comparison to the one in Caen is excellent. Clean room. Very convenient situation close to La Rochelle centre. Decent value. Only downside is overpriced breakfast which is just not worth the money.

Stayed here on a stop over heading down the west coast of France. Nice enough hotel in a good little location a short walk to town.

Nice hotel situated a short walk from La Rochelle centre. Staff were efficient and friendly. Had a problem in room on first evening and staff immediately arranged a fix. Pool is small but it's a short walk to the beach anyway. Not worth paying extra for the pool unless you have kids.

My family (2 adults and 2 teens) stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of August as a stopover for our holiday further south of France.

We stopped at the Novotel for 2 nights on our way back from the Dordogne. It's a perfect base from where to explore the city. Roommates are competitive for a major city and we paid €300 euros for 2 nights at the height of summer. Decent breakfast, comfortable rooms and great swimming pool (for the kids).

Well placed and nice atmosphere. A busy summers evening had a cosmopolitan mix of customers. Warm and welcoming for children and parents alike, plus a dog. The hotel is comfortable with good A/C and lots of (height unrestricted) parking for cars. The short walk to La Rochelle town centre is pleasant and easy to navigate. Obviously lots of of choices...
