Hôtel Novotel Rouen Sud

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

OK hotel, nice in summer with the swimming pool, (although freezing cold as not heated.). We stayed in January for a fair in the exhibition centre, which is very handy, only minutes away. The hotel is a little tired, but OK. We were on the 2nd floor, very quiet but room too hot and couldn't turn down the heating. Very comfortable bed. No BBC channels on TV.

Spending here more then 100 nights a year with our company, it is everytime a discovery to see which stains this times have been added to the carpet in the standard and superior rooms (only exec rooms are "still" OK) It is a pity for the VERY friendly staff to have to sent clients into these rooms. If it weren t for the proximity to the office, we would change

Situated on the outskirts of Rouen in an attractive wooded area. Spacious superior room - clean and tidy. Very nice staff throughout hotel most of whom speak English. Lots of parking available on site. Tesla charging points are on the right as you go through the security entrance gate. Lovely outdoor swimming pool for the summer months.

I stayed in this hotel as an overnight stop as part of a longer journey when I was in France on business in May. The location of this hotel makes it very good for an overnight stop as it is very close to the motorway network but it is quite a distance from the centre of the town. The staff in this hotel are really friendly and did everything that they could have done to make sure that my stay was as comfortable as possible. The rooms at this hotel are comfortable and have every modern amenity that you could have hoped for. They are clean and well maintained and I had a great nights sleep here. I only ate breakfast at this hotel as I used it for an overnight stop. The breakfast was tasty. It was a self service buffet.

Food was really good. But the hotel needs renovating, and is ex pensive for the state of rhe rooms. Even the toilet seat was worn and stained there was even a huge stain on the carpet. Looked like someone had an accident.

We stay at Novotels regularly and are never disappointed. The location of this one was good for us travelling north through France. The room was clean and the a la carte restaurant served excellent food. Breakfast plentiful a good range buffet. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Would stay here again

Great example of a good Novotel..except for a soft furnishing fail. Restaurant packed, but staff were totally on top of it and were all cheerful as well. Pity carpet in the room was old and filthy. Mentioned this at checkout. Did not get the impression that I was the first to mention this.

We stayed here overnight as part of a coach tour around France. Our room was clean and comfortable, if basic, but certainly ok for one night. The food in the restaurant was delicious and the staff were helpful.

We have stayed in lots of Novotels, and Rouen Sud is one of the most welcoming and cheerful we have visited. The location is in a pleasant and secluded forest-like setting. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was generally in a good state, except for the carpet which needs a good clean! A few of the bathroom fittings also needed some maintenance, for example the towel rail was loose - perhaps because someone had previously used it as a grab handle to climb out of the bath? The bed was very comfortable and the temperature was in the range we like. There was no noise in the night. The restaurant dinner was great, and in the morning we appreciated the availability of "cafe-croissant" taken at the bar, as an cheaper optional alternative to the big buffet breakfast. The automatic rapid checkout, requiring only our key card to be dropped in the box is a valuable time saver on departure. A great start to our holiday. Thanks Novotel!

I stayed here early 2017 in a standard room and the room and corridor to it were very old, in poor condition and felt dirty. I would not stay in a standard room again. I'm now back late 2017 and after reading reviews on Tripadvisor decided to give an executive room a chance. For €140 they're good value for money, it's the same size but has been refurbished and feels clean. The bar, restaurant and outside area (near the pool) are really nice areas. The car park is big and close to reception. I find it really easy to get to driving from Paris as you don't get the Rouen traffic. But the down side is you're not in Rouen and there's nothing around you. The staff are ok. Their English doesn't seem as good as staff in Rouen hotels but it's still enough...and much better than my French. It's a good hotel, just book an executive room!
