This hotel is in a beautiful location by the lake. We used it as a stop over on route to our final destination and would have been happy to stay longer. The staff were great from check in to check out. The hotel itself is well looked after and looks to have been modernized in recent years. We stayed as a family in one room with a friend in the adjoining room, it’s was great they could keep us together. We took breakfast and found this to be well stocked even though we were there towards the end. Obvious COVID procedures are in place. I’ve seen others complain about this but can only imagine that is because people did not follow the rules, the hotel has done everything they can to make this safe.

Dibbyspot Families - 06/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is easy to reach and has excellent facilities and location. Close to the tram service with regular services into central Bordeaux. You never need to take the car which is a bonus. The pool is great and secure. Can recommend for family trip.

Very misleading advertising. The hotel rooms are in need a complete refurbishment.

Abdel Families - 03/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I booked this hotel at the very last minute. I was disappointed by the standard of the room provided. I found the advertising extremely misleading as the hotel room and was in really bad condition. The reception area gives the impression that it's a modern hotel, but as soon as your reach your bedroom floor it's like you move back 20 yrs. The room felt like a 2 star hotel rather than a 4 a tar. I was delighted that I was staying just for 1 night.

Very well located, nice stay

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Bruno Business - 18/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is very nice however the restaurant is too noisy and it is hard to sleep if your room is over it.

Uncomfortable beds and poor Covid discipline at breakfast

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Stefan Couples - 12/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very hard beds and cushions. Air in the room not fresh and Stink from chemicals. We slept very bad this night. Corona discipline very bad at breakfast. Buffe is not a good concept and you were the only hotel in our trip through Europe that had this concept. Many persons tight together at the buffe and not enough distance between tables. We can not recommend this hotel and will not come back.

Perfect stay

474alexeye Family - 13/10/2019 TripAdvisor review

Breakfast is served till 9:30 during the week and until 11:00 on weekends. Air-condition in the room was just a ventilation. Avoid rooms with windows to the restaurant: loud parties can be held till midnight and even later. 20 minutes to Bordeaux city centre by tram, which stop is just a short walk away from the hotel.

Nice hotel, good location

KoenV1682 Couples - 02/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

2nd time in the hotel, executive rooms are good, just ask a high floor or not close to the terras when in summer ... otherwise you can have some noise in the evening. Hotel is nicely situated, next to a tram stop that has a direct line to the center of Bordeaux

Convenient but average hotel.

julieandmurray Couples - 26/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

The staff are very helpful and smiley but.... our room was portly maintained and a disappointment. Housekeeping staff did not replenish tea/coffee/water and our bottom sheet on the bed barely covered the mattress. At dinner th first night, 4 of the 7 main meals were not available so we ate elsewhere and continued to do so for our 3 night stay. Breakfast was OK but naturally. Use with so many families staying at the hotel.

Convenient and comfortable

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Paul C Family - 25/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

very comfortable. Good buffet breakfast. Good TV. Convenient for tram into Bordeaux. Room a bit small. More lifts would be useful. Disappointing restaurant for evening meal with not much choice as all the food was quite 'fancy' and we would have preferred something plainer. However, there are other restaurants within walking distance. Useful city map provided

OK, not great, too far from anything. Middle of NOWHERE!

windycity55 Solo travel - 05/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

Chose the Novotel because it was 108* in Bordeaux and needed A/C in a BIG WAY ! Liked the idea that it was a walk from the tram (3 min at most), and had a POOL ! I'd been in Bordeaux a week and needed to cool off. I didn't realize how in the middle of NOWHERE this place is. IF you are working at the Palais du Congres or the Exhibition place, fine. Otherwise, unless you live in Bordeaux and just want a pool for the kids, forget it. Find another place. The hotel workers were nice. Front desk - day shift, very nice. Restaurant workers VERY NICE. I spoke no French, and yet they were always very helpful. BREAKFAST - note. I PAID for breakfast (which is a limited buffet style: eggs, pastries, some meets, cereal, fruit, cheese), but I don't know why I paid, since no one asked and every morning it seemed everyone in the hotel ate breakfast there. It was packed every morning. I stayed 1 week, which was TOO LONG.
