« worth a stay »

Well worth staying if using a car and using the hotel as a base for visiting. The hotel is perfectly located to leave the car and walk to all the points of interest in the old port of La Rochelle. The hotel is tired looking as are the rooms and a face lift is needed to justify 4 stars. However, staying out of season and the price was ok. The staff are fantastically friendly and helpful but the service is slow and erratic. Two examples, the first being a 10 minute wait for a beer and lemonade due to no bar staff. The second was sitting in the area the children play in having a beer watching my son play and i had to go up to reception to ask them to clear away broken glass on the floor! We used the pool at the end of May and it was clean and warm. The breakfast is very good.

« Friendly atmosphere, great location »

This has been the latest in a long series of stops at La Rochelle, one of our favouriite locations on the south western seabord in France. The hotel is clean, the staff frendly, the prices just fine,considering this is France and the location perfect. Right across from a lovely park, it is also within ten minutes walking distance from the old harfbour and the restaurant area. The hotel has a vast parking area, so if you are drfiving there, as we always do, it is an added asset. There is no thoroughfare nearby, so sleep is guaranteed.

Many thanks for your kind feedback the Team as me wish you a very good year best regards K.Laouamen

« lovely hotel »

I am disabled and was very impressed when the hotel phoned me to check that the room allocated would meet my needs and if there was anything else they could do to help. The room we stayed in was very accessible and near reception and my car. I wish we had stayed here for more than 1 night.

Hello, many thanks for your positive feedback. I hope to welcome you again in La Rochelle best regards K.Laouamen

« great location and value »

The hotel is situated a few minutes walk away from the main tourist attractions adjacent to a green open park. Akthough the hotel only has the pool area for outside sitting the green park rea is very conveinent. This is an idel situation for getting away from "the crowds" but only a short walk to the city centre.

Merci beaucoup. hope to see you again in Novotel La Rochelle best regards K.Laouamen

« Not up to usual Novotel standards »

My wife and I spent a few days in La Rochelle for a short break. Lovely place to visit and, as it was our first time, I went with the low risk option of The Novotel as I frequently stay in Accor hotels (gold card loyalty member). The location is very convenient for both the beach and town, but in a quiet location next to a park. The building is looking tired though - in need of refurbishment. The service was also not up to the standard I expect - tea bags and the card for ordering breakfast were not replaced each day; breakfast finished at 9.30, but stuff was running out well before then. Little choice of food available all day and the panini and croquet monsieur were awful. There was a terrible smell in the stair well all the time. It won't put me off Accor hotels, but this one just let the brand down slightly.

karim N, Directeur général at Novotel La Rochelle Centre, responded to this review

dear Guest, I apologise about that and regret you didn't alert me during your stay. Anyway, If you come back to La Rochelle, please let me know and I will arange a nice stay for you best regards K.Laouamen Manager

« Novotel La Rochelle Centre »

Stayed here with two young children. The staff were very helpful and the location was great. A lovely walk through the park straight to the beach and the old port. Relatively easy to find and parking was easy which having driven from the UK was really important for us.

« Stayover on way to campsite »

We chose the Novotel La Rochelle Centre for 2 reasons: easily accessible to our final destination & its proximity to the city centre. Our experience was excellent. Staff gave great advice, room great.

« Great hotel »

This is probably our favourite Novatel hotel. La Rochelle is a great destination and the hotel is perfectly located to take advantage of all it has to offer. It is close enough to walk into the centre of the town but is located in the centre of a park so is really quiet and peaceful. The dinner was good and reasonably priced and the staff are a credit to the hotel. Friendly but efficient. The room was comfortable, clean and well appointed. Being dog friendly is important to us and we didn't feel as though we were given a "dog room". Obviously it's close proximity to the park is also a benefit to dog owners. I believe this hotel definitely qualifies for my 5 star rating.

« Nice hotel »

Very friendly hotel with good service and food. Rooms are pretty basic. Location is a little out of the main areas but easy walking to tonnes of resturants in the port area. Not the easiest to find by car due to one way streets so take a good local map.

Richard K 2014/04/22
« Long weekend »

A great hotel for a relaxing weekend away from home. A short walk through a very lovely park to all the main amenities. A special mention for the barman, Henri, who really went the extra mile to make us welcome and helped us enjoy the weekend.
