Recent guest reviews

Nice stay in this hotel, good situation close to the "Bordeaux rocade" but quiet, the parking is free of charge, the restaurant offers a good choice not too expensive and the breakfast is particularly great!!

Everything is fine except that in the rooms you do not have any place to organized your clothes... there must remain in the suitcase. Even in the IBIS you have at least some shelfs to organized your stuff

Great location for the airport, but not at the air port! Good cheese and meat plates available until midnight if you are too late for dinner...rooms are standard and comfortable and large car park..... .

This hotel was booked for my by my company in France The hotel is near the convention centre, however it was pleasantly quiet despite this. Good English spoken as unfortunately my French is poor. The rooms were modern, clean and comfortable as one would expect from the Novotel. Staff at reception were accommodating and helpful The hotel restaurant was good with well cooked and presented meals. Even better the staff didn’t laugh at my attempt to order in French I would use this hotel again

The air conditioning did not work and the room was not very clean. We tried to complain but the person in reception only spoke French (or so he said) .. We only stay one night so its all we have to say..

Stayed for the weekend with 90 other colleges to take part in a rugby competition. Very friendly staff, superb breakfast and bar area... train station outside hotel with journey of 15 mins into city centre.

This hotel has been renovated and the comfort of the rooms is excellent. It is possible that some GPS have the old entrance indicated. The restaurant like many in France is hostile to the vegetarian and even the prawns are served with slices of fried sausage. At breakfast the muesli is so full of sugar to be uneatable, and slices of the cereal bread are hidden away in a drawer. Despite this, the personnel do their very best if they have time for you. Unfortunately, the restaurant at breakfast was a real mess.

We needed to be in Bordeaux early one morning and this ended up ticking all our boxes. Easily accessible from motorway/peripherique. Free parking, but superb and inexpensive access to centre of city by tram which was about 100m away. Friendly staff. Can't comment on restaurant as we ate in the city and didn't need breakfast.

19/9/17 to 21/9/17. This a low-rise Novotel in a great location next to Bordeaux Lac. It’s close to the autoroute around the west of Bordeaux, and there’s a tram stop right outside for access to the City Centre. The rooms are typical Novotel and not very big. For the price paid they are nothing special. We ate in the restaurant which was quite expensive – as were the drinks. The steak was excellent, but the pasta dish was disappointing. There is a small outdoor pool which was still available to use and there is a very pleasant outdoor sitting area. They have airport-style luggage trolleys for you to use in transporting suitcases etc. which was a good idea.

Great location by a lake and only 15 minutes away from center by train. Extremely family friendly: amazing play room (xbox, etc.), gift upon arrival, modestly priced kids menu, heated pool, free breakfast for children. Nice restaurant and terrace.The size of the family room is relatively small but it is nicely furnished.
