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,...

I have stayed in the Le lac area many times but not in the Novotel. I was pleasantly surprised with the standard of the accommodation and breakfast facilities. The rooms are basic but clean and tidy. It has large breakfast area with a good choice of food and drinks. The hotel has a secure car park and feels safe. The...

We had always had very good experiences with the Novotel brand, and this hotel was no exception - in fact, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised that it surpassed even our expectations. Check-in was a breeze, and the children's entertainment corner had a variety of toys for every age from infants to even teenagers with its game consoles. The...

After a day in the car you can cool down in the pool. We booked 2 nights so the next day we took the tram (stop in front of hotel) into the city. Bordeaux is nice. Worth a visit. At the end of that day we took a dive in the pool right before it closes at 10 pm. Room...
