Novotel Nantes Centre Gare

I rarely have given such a poor review of a hotel. However, with this one I must. As you walk into the hotel there is a strong sewer smell that is overwhelming. It doesn't get much better either. This should be a 2 or maybe 2 1/2 star hotel. The room is spartan, yet adequate in the sense it has a toilet, shower & bed. I would suggest you only stay here if you absolutely must. Otherwise, find anywhere else. I would if I ever found myself in Nantes again.

standard Novotel hotel, in a good location with some shops nearby and within easy walking distance of the city centre, some colleagues had dinner in the hotel but were not very impressed with the food, the staff were nice/friendly, I was unable to find a better hotel to stay in in Nantes

Large hotel close to the city centre with what you expect from Novotel, room was a bit dated but everything worked. Easy access from the main road in with secure underground parking. Plenty of bars and restaurants within a 10 minute walk.

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.

Stayed for one night en route to the south west. Couldn't fault the service or the room. The location is great, overlooking a branch of the river and a short walk to the centre of town. Secure parking under hotel. Quiet. Breakfast was good (and included in our room rate) with hot and cold options.

We spent 1 night in this hotel. According to platinum membership - we didn't received an upgrade to hogher standard room at arrival. After seeing our room I asked for that and then we received an apartment, which was totally dirty and dusty, In bathroom, there is a melt all over the bathtube.

Travelling with a large group from work the Novotel Nantes Centre Gare was the appointed hotel. I had a standard room, which was surprisingly spacious. One thing I did not like much regarding the room was the separate small room for the WC (without a sink). The bathroom as such was also quite small. There is a safe for storing valuables available in the rooms. Free WiFi. I'd be careful if you plan on having breakfast in the hotel restaurant, as I had to have 4 or 5 attempts finding e.g. a clean coffee cup. Lots of cups and plates looked as if they had just been rinsed, far less washed properly in a washing machine. There is a small bar area located close to the reception on the ground floor, however the selection in this bar was rather at a minimum. The location is arguably the best thing with this hotel, however I would most likely chose another hotel if visiting Nantes again.

Stayed here again for a overnight business trip. Lovely room on the 4th floor. The room had tea and coffee making facilities and nice big room. Clean and tidy although the shower could have been better with more pressure. Plenty of selection at breakfast with pancakes with bacon and maple syrup....hmm gorgeous. Staff were very helpful and courteous. Will stay here again when I travel on business again. Thank you for a trouble free stay.

With Novotel you know what your getting, the place was smart, modern and very clean. Our room was on the 5th floor with a very good view of the canal. Good location only a 10 minute walk to the centre of Nantes. Staff where friendly and polite. No parking at all but underground car park literally next door which cost us 12E overnight.

This hotel is within walking distance of the cathedral, the Chateau des Ducs de Bretagne and the Botanical Gardens. It is easy to get to and there is secure commercial parking next door but not connected to the hotel. Service was efficient at reception and in the Restaurent. Rooms are reasonably spacious and clean. There was very little noise at night. Bathrooms have both bath and shower cubicle. Restaurent food was quite expensive and of indifferent quality. The breakfast was well stocked with hot and cold food and potentially substantial. All typically Novotel.
