Steve Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

We enjoyed the location in a beautiful park only 10 minutes’ walk to the town centre. The room was very stylish and comfortable. Staff were warm and friendly throughout the hotel. The only weak spot is the evening food in the restaurant, which was poorly prepared. The kitchen is not the same high standard as the rest of the hotel.

Good stay

I can highly recommend this hotel. Helpful staff, clean rooms with good facilities, good breakfast and beautiful setting in the Parc Charruyer. How lovely to wake to bird song and red squirrels in the trees outside. We will definitely stay in Novotel La Rochelle again. Only one small point, it would be great to be able to make boiled eggs for breakfast. We have stayed in the Ibis at Vieux port and they had a Bain Marie specifically for this purpose.

constanceg2018 TripAdvisor review

Our only comment is that the bath was too high and one of us with arthritis found it difficult to access. Our preference would be a walk-in shower. Loved the ambience and the setting of the hotel, especially the proximity to the park wildlife, squirrels etc. Breakfast very good, but maybe there could be boiled eggs as an option? Staff excellent.

Great location and great breakfast

Very Friendly Hotel

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Ray Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed 3 nights with our dogs. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and made both us and the dogs welcome. The food was very good. Breakfasts were varied and evening meal was good but not an expansive menu so we only ate at the hotel one evening during our stay. Will definitely use this hotel next time we stay in La Rochelle.

Pleasant stay

Jonathan Families - Confirmed reviews ALL

Nice bar/restaurant area however the room was smaller than expected and view on a carpark which wasn’t the most beautiful exeperience. We booked this hotel for the kids as there was a pool. The pool was filled with green water and it was closed.We were told that it wasn’t the season for the pool … Staff was nice and hotel was well located.

I am a regular customer of Novotel at La Rochelle. I think the value for money is excellent: good location, comfy bed, and standard room confort at an affordable price. The staff is very friendly, and goes the extra mile to make me feel at home.

Nice hotel, unfortunately marred by the ambience. Staff on reception were friendly but other staff markedly not so, and not very helpful. I was very disappointed with this hotel because of the atmosphere. It didn't seem like the staff were very happy or else they were just curt to customers.

thank you for giving your opinion. I do not know on what date you came and I am surprised. generally our clients appreciate the kindness of the team and their professionalism. if you want to give me more details, I am available: very cordially K.Laouamen, manager

Beautiful, well-serviced hotel in a quiet part of town

Super Six Days

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

lordsyrup Couples - TripAdvisor review

We have just returned from an enjoyable 6 days at La Rochelle and staying at the Novotel was the perfect choice. The staff were so welcoming and made sure you were happy and cared for. The hotel is perfectly located by a park offering a 20 minute walk to the harbour. Super room, great breakfast choices and we had dinner 3 times in the restaurant. Very enjoyable. Swimming pool and large car park. We will be back.

Nice hotel, excellent location

One of the better Novotel-hotels I have stayed at with the family. Only a small disappointment when my chicken brochette arrived black-burned at dinner. I received another brochette after complaining, but no apologies from the staff.

Dear Customer, thank you for taking the time to write to us. Sorry for this problem in the restaurant, we should have offered this dish and apologize. I hope to see you again soon at la rochelle cordially K.Laouamen, manager
