Reasonable stay

Ish Families - 10/08/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Upon arrival at the hotel, it turned out that the hotel did not have any connecting rooms, although this was confirmed by telephone by the reservation agent. The airco in room 452 was not working. Had some sleepless nights due to the heat. The breakfast was reasonable but to the minimum and the same every day. The staff in the breakfast room are cheerful and hard-working. My compliments to the staff.

Malcolm Couples - 16/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We very much enjoy this hotel but feel that it is now in need of room renovation as the bathrooms are very outdated (when compared with Mercure bathrooms eg Orange and Tours) and the bedrooms need new carpets!!

Creepy rooms

Customer review rating 1.5/5

P. C. Business - 01/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Minimal staff, checkin counter is ridiculous (small high table), sport room is basic as can be, the corridors are creepy. The rooms look so old. I felt like I was back in colony holidays when I was a kid. Staff was kind though and place is quiet, the rest is just a waste.

Room, breakfast and dinner experience good.

Room, breakfast and dinner experience good. But it was not possible to buy any chocolate, chips or other snack even though it is very far to the nearest supermarked.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We hope to welcome you back to our hotel very soon! Sincerely, Julien Front office manager

Crappy breakfast, impolite staff, incorrect billing, requires renovation, water dropping from ceiling

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Restaurant I. A. N. Business - 22/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Breakfast is a n. - never have seen a smaller offering. Received false bill - wrong billing address, one breakfast charged to much. When asking for correction, staff reacted impatient and impolite instead of excusing. During breakfast, water was pouring from the ceiling in many places in the restaurant. Overall, the building requires significant renovation, e.g. the carpet seems to be be alive. I was in the restaurant for dinner twice. The second time left me with a sleepless night due to stomach issues. Only the executive room I seems to have gone through a renovation and was ok. The windows need replacement urgently.

Perfect experience

overall the experience is good. Staffs are nice and helpful.

Hotel is dated. Needs a fresh up. Rooms are OK though.

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Anonymous Business - 17/10/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is OK for the location. Staff is friendly. However the corridors are worn, shows too many signs of repainting (which should normally not be necessary with good covering of the floors! Room is comfortable, though shower at full capacity, draining is insufficient. Airco did not work properly when set at minimum temperature (or is cooling turned off on a specific date?). Coach is worn and no longer representative. Breakfast is not worth the money. Small choice. No scrambled eggs, nor any prepared eggs (except for boiled hard eggs which are cold). Takes too much time to prepare yourself. Breakfast should be pick, eat and move on, not allowing time to boil eggs yourself or bake them (also too crampy with 3 persons wanting each 2 eggs). On the next question of what sort of trip was this, I can't make the combination of Single and Business, couple and business, etc. Would be good for you to know don't you?

Very old hotel with a high room rate, i expected novotel to be in the higher range.

Anonymous Business - 10/10/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Hotel is oudated and still at high price rates. Rooms are smelling and old fashioned. Beds are with metal frame (look like hospital beds). Restaurant furniture outside is old, sometimes broken. guy at the breakfast was not friendly for some customer trying to figure out how to get a cappucino, really annoying to see he was not helping out. i helped the lady to poor a coffee. This is really below accor standards with overrates prices. will not visit this one again before it is upgraded.

Check-in was great Outside space is lovely Carpets need cleaning, badly Room set up is great I was very upset that, despite putting my "do not disturb" sign on my door both days, the cleaners disregarded this and still came in my room to clean. This would actually make me not choose your hotel in the future. Do not Disturb means do not enter my room. Point finale. I was also quite upset to have been automatically joined to your loyalty programme. I wish to be unjoined from this immediately, however, there was no way to reply to the email.

bed's hard and sweaty bed cover, there was mould in the badroom. All functioned fine but very dated! Kind personal but had to call for my bill. They did not send it as promised by mail. Also bill looks a bit messy, what is what and only in French.

The first glance at the lobby was a good one and then I saw the room and I was really disappointed. The hotel hasn't been renovated and is in an urgent need to be. But despite this feeling of being stuck in the 80's, the team is really great and thanks to them, my experience was really great. But please. renovate this hotel. Please.

Wilc4 Family - 14/08/2018 TripAdvisor review

We stayed as a family of four in August 2018 and this was our first stay at this Novotel. We have stayed in many different Novotels before and always end up coming back as everything is on-site that we need and locations are usually good. The Novotel Antibes Sophia Antipolis is quite different to other Novotels we have stayed in and when we first arrived at the hotel we did have mixed feelings about whether we would enjoy it or not. The hotel foyer and bar area is quite gloomy compared to others and the location is more isolated, it did take a few days for it to grow on us. After a few days we really enjoyed the quiet, relaxed feel of the hotel and the breakfast area was lovely overlooking the forest. All staff were pleasant and helpful, especially reception staff who helped us with the best bus routes and transport services as we didn't have a car. The Envibus network is amazing and the bus stop is located at the top of the road about 5 minute walk from the hotel. We used it nearly every day to get to Antibes old town and beach (20 mins) and also the nearby Casino supermarket and bars and restaurants (Templis stop 10 mins) and The Green King is great for food!. It did take a while to find our feet here but we enjoyed every minute of it. The boys loved the pool area, table tennis and tennis courts and even though it was August holidays it was never too busy around the pool. A lovely relaxing stay - thank you Novotel!

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment after your stay at our establishment. As you point out, the hotel is very easy to reach, close to motorway access and public transport networks, while being quiet. I am fully aware that our hotel deserves a refreshing and refreshing update. The renovation of the hotel is planned for the end of the year. Above all, the sense of welcoming my staff and their know-how is our primary asset. I'm glad you felt it. Hoping to welcome you to Sophia, Best regards Stéphane Korownikoff - General Manager - Novotel Sophia Antipolis

Nice place, good value, but dirty carpets

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Zoltan1969 Family - 13/08/2018 TripAdvisor review

Me and my family stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in the beginning of August, 2018 as part of our round trip in Southern France. I liked the price of this hotel (compared the big ones at the beach side and big towns), however you definitely need a car to reach anything from this hotel. I booked this room at this hotel because of the good price, and the big brand Novotel (Accor hotels), which guarantees a quality. Unfortunately the quality here was under my expectations for Novotel. The carpets on the corridors and in the room was very dirty, and actally very stinky. The outside condition of the building was aslo under my expectation for this big hotel brand, but that did not affect our stay. Otherwise my room was clean, just enough space for 3 people, but a bit old school style. There was a big rush and chaotic conditions at breakfast bufet. I think the buffet tables are small, not sufficient for that many guests and to work is badly organized.

Cosy and comfortable

Staff were great and the whole ambience was brilliant for a quiet stay. Good facilities for business travelers. Excellent breakfast and had all the necessities needed for a comfortable stay with easy access to cabs as well.
