After 3 weeks in a camp site near Bordeaux, we were heading for the Ferry Port at Cherbourg and elected to stop off on a hotel in Rennes on the Saturday night and booked the Rennes Alma for the first time. Located just off inside the periphique, we were very pleased to see that it was located beside the Alma Shopping Centre which included a very large Carrefour. Checking in at reception around 6:45pm, we were met by a fairly stiff and surly madam who despite my best efforts to liaise in French, did not make us feel very welcome and advised us that the shopping centre and Carrefour closed at 8pm. (We latterly discovered Carrefour was open to 9:30). The check in was quick and the room advertised as a double and 2 single beds, turned out to be a rather uncomfortable sofa bed for the 2 kids aged 12 and 10. Nonetheless the room was clean and comfortable and the wifi was good. Next morning, my daughter wished to use the outdoor pool and we were advised by the receptionist to ask for access to the pool at the bar. The lady at the bar told us the pool was 'ferme' because of the weather. We went back to the receptionist again, after which there was a discussion and the lady at the bar, reluctantly accepted that it was open and grumpily marched us out to the pool. Whilst it was great to have a pool at this hotel, the pool was quite dirty and it was clear it hadn't been cleaned for a few days. Overall, we would go back to the Rennes Alma due to its location and price, but they really need to work on their customer relations.

This hotel is located next to the Alma Commercial centre and it is easy to get a bus into Rennes centre at a cost of 1.50e per person. The hotel staff were in the most part pleasant, welcoming and friendly, although one waiter could do with further training in customer service as his attitude left a lot to be desired. The room was very clean and inviting and everything worked well in there. The bed was very comfortable and had new bedding. Smoking rooms are available upon request.
Bonjour cher client, Au nom de toute l'équipe du NOVOTEL RENNES ALMA, je vous remercie pour votre commentaire. Les avis des internautes, après consultation, nous aident à nous améliorer au quotidien. Passez une excellente journée !
I was mis-charged here and had to try and resolve this with manager. After much arguing this was mainly resolved. But then I got back home to find that they had charged me twice and refunded me once so I suffered some extra foreign transaction charges due to their mal admin. Food wasn't great and there is a very limited menu if you buy B&B and dinner rate. May as well not bother with this. Pool is small but useable.
Cher client, Désolée d'apprendre que vous avez eu quelques déboires durant votre séjour. Je peux vous assurer que cela n'est pas fréquent dans notre hôtel. J'espère que nous aurons malgré tout l'occasion de vous prouver notre professionnalisme lors d'un prochain séjour. Cordialement,
Very disappointed with my booking via accor.com. i had to cancel my visit because of a death in my family and the only answer i got when i rang to cancel was " sorry not refundable". i think it is a disgrace to treat your members in this fashion and i will probably not stay again in a Novotel or any other Accor hotel if this is company Policy. it is not too late to make an effort and refund 100 € i paid in advance for my booking. It would make all the difference between being just a number or feeling part of a group as a member Michael Walsh I
Cher Monsieur WALSH, Merci d'avoir pris le temps de relater votre soucis de réservation mais il est vrai que vous avez choisi volontairement un tarif non modifiable, non remboursable et nous ne pouvons pas faire systématiquement d'exception. Je suis navré que vous n'ayez pas pu séjourner dans notre hôtel mais je vous propose de me contacter directement sur mon @mail : firstname.lastname@example.org lors de votre prochaine réservation au NOVOTEL RENNES ALMA et je m'occuperai personnellement de vous accorder notre meilleur tarif. Cordialement,
Highly recommended, good location, ideal (as clearly others have discovered) to overnight before catching the ferry to Ireland. Very convenient for the upmarket ALMA shopping centre if you need to pick anything up or just stretch the legs with little ones rain or shine. One of the best family hotels we have stayed in.
3 or 4th visit to this Novotel - perfect stopping off point on the way home to catch the ferry from St Malo. Great price for a 'hotel experience' rather than the anonymous experience you get at some other road side hotels. Our children, in particular, love staying there.
The location of the hotel is good if you are travelling by car. Metro station is about 15min walking distance, and by metro city center is about 10min. The shopping mall is very close. We did not try breakfast but otherwise the service was very good. Everybody is smiling and helpful. The hotel is located almost in a park, so you wake up with the singing birds.
Children (aged 9 and 4) very much enjoyed toy room, outdoor play area, and swimming pool. Only slight drawbacks in design of family room (double bed plus 2 fold out sofa beds) for those with small children is height of washbasin (perhaps a step-stool could be provided) and shower only ratehr than combination bath/shower as in some Novotels.
The hotel is ideally situated for us on the outskirts of Rennes and close to a number of excellent golf courses. There is a frequent and quick bus service to Rennes from a stop 50 yards from the hotel. The hotel restaurant has a varied menu which is more than adequate for a short stay and the breakfast choice is also plentiful and of good quality. Finally, we have found all the staff extremely pleasant and the receptionist on check-in was particularly helpful.
