We have stayed at the hotel many times as our last night prior to getting the ferry back to Ireland. The hotel is in a great location and is spacious which is even more important now with the pandemic. The hotel also welcomes dogs . On this visit I was impressed by your very helpful receptionist who helped us print off all the additional paperwork required at the border. We hope to stay again next year.

Last minute reservation after a terrible ordeal with the SNCF. We arrived exhausted in a nice room, fitting perfectly my 3 kids and I. Room service was great and the staff very caring. The only reason why I did not give it a 10 was the check out at 530am. The person at the front desk took nearly 15 minutes to allow us out and we almost missed our train. The night before I checked we could get out quickly with the front desk as we had to travel. The room was prepaid and the credit card was on file for the room service so there was no reason to keep us inside.

The room was clean, the people in the reception were very polite and helpful. The breakfast was very good, however some goods were not available on all days. The location was very good, however I would prefer an owned parking place, rather than using the public parking place nearby.

This hotel is connected to the congress center, very close to the LU area, close to the train station, to the castle and to downtown. The team is a professional one and happy to support as needed.

Dreadful environmental practices!

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Paul Friends - 25/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Not sure if you provide feedback to hotels on their websites, tripadvisor etc but I went on the latter this morning and posted the following: ‘Firstly I should say that the accommodation provided complies with all that one would expect of a Novotel, clean, warm & comfortable. However, it is shocking to see that the Accor hotel group are slipping behind the times and not keeping up with the growing customer sensitivity for good environmental practices. To still be finding single-use plastics in use in the rooms in the form of plastic goblets in plastic wrapping, shampoo and shower gel in plastic single use tubes, tea bags in plastic rather than paper sachets etc is shocking. I can’t imagine how many goblets, tubes & sachets get used in this one hotel each day, which then when multiplied by the 1000’s of hotels in the Accor group and 365 days in a year must produce tonnes of landfill waste. Clearly Accor are no longer an industry-leading group and I will be avoiding their hotels in favour of those that are environmentally sensitive until they do so.’

Dear PAUL P., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Novotel Nantes Centre Gare.

matthewn492 Business - 31/10/2017 TripAdvisor review

I had nothing but issues with this hotel regarding service. The room was impeccable, but it does seem that there are systems in place that the hotel is incapable of managing. Every day, some times, multiple times per day, there were issues. It started with the text telling me my key was ready for me, but when I arrived, the room was not ready. When I reserved, I indicated I needed a Vegan meal, and I had an urgent need for my clothes to be pressed. Well, NO ONE knew about my dietary needs, and the "urgent pressing" could not be returned until 24 hours later. There were many others, but the one that takes the cake. I asked the front desk which SUSHI restaurant I could call to have some Sushi delivered. I was informed that I was not allowed to have food delivered because the hotel had a restaurant...a manager did come out after a while to tell me I could order sushi...was it that or when I called room service before closing and was told they could not make anything for me for dinner (dietary restrictions, remember) because it was too late and I should have called earlier...NEVER AGAIN AT THIS HOTEL!!!

Nice hotel with helpful people. The breakfast is good and the room to take it is extremely well exposed to the sun which is just a pleasure first thing in the morning. The bed could have been better for the price my company paid.

The hotel was very good but the car park below was a problem . While parked overnight some white car damaged all the near side of my car and did not leave a note . A bit of a put off as the repair cost will exceed the hotel visit .

Where to stay for the quilt show in Nantes??

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

GrandmaLilian Couples - 01/05/2013 TripAdvisor review

The hotel was very easy to find, the underground carparking (paid) was very convenient and the venue for the quilt show (the reason we were in Nantes) was next door to the hotel. The room was comfortable and clean, the buffet breakfast (included in price) was varied and plentiful. What we liked most was the convenience of the hotel, what we liked least was that the tables in the restaurant were very close together - difficult to move around the room at breakfast, our room safe did not work, and the tea/coffee supplied in the room was not always refilled. We would definitely choose to stay at this hotel again.
