« Nice mid range hotel with easy access to all of bordeaux »

Room was very nice. Sufficient room and nice couch to sit on. Room was veryquiet with all we needed Bar service was very disorganized. Bar person had no way to settle accounts so he ran back and forth, leaving people waiting a long time. Breakfast was ample and good

« Disappointing for a 4 star hotel »

I thought overall for the money that was paid and the apparent rating of the hotel it was very disappointing. The coffee and milk in the room was not replaced after the 1st day and the attitude of certain of the staff was poor in my opinion.

Comfortable beds. Nice room and bathroom. Not enough plug points. 2 in family room is not adequate. Not enough cups/tea and coffee facilities for 3 people. Took housekeeping half an hr to deliver extra. Asked for a little something special to acknowledge my friends birthday that happened to fall whilst we were staying there. Any small token would have made her feel special. Asked by email and at reception. Nothing was done which was disappointing. Generally a nice hotel but not enough personal touches

Staff were very helpful and friendly

« Ok »

Reasonable room, nice to have cold drinks & chocolate. Didn’t eat at hotel other than breakfast which was ok but not enough staff to replenish when things ran out. Big problem was at checkout - we’d paid in advance to take advantage of a good rate & then a young man tried to charge extra! A lady stepped in when we became cross & all was well in the end!

« Lovely hotel but bad drains »

No e hotel but the drains were very smelly. All it needs is some sodium hydrochloride tabs( Milton sterilising tabs for baby bottles) Just crumble one into the loo and one each into the plug holes of sink and bath. I usually carry them but who knew I would need them at such a smart hotel. Also, did anyone find my black trousers I left in the wardrobe???? Jan

« Sort the drains out »

A lovely hotel with only one exception. Serious smelly drains. All they need to do is arm the cleaners with some sodium .hyperclorite tablets. (Milton sterilizing g tablets for babies bottles). Break a one into the loo, one into the sink plug hole and ditto for the bathroom. Problem solved. I usually travel with some but forgot this time. Who thought I would need them at such a posh hotel. Also left my black trousers in the wardrobe. Did anyone e find them?

« An adequate stay »

To start with there was an error in the booking as my wife and children were not ncluded in the booking, but the receptionist sorted it out for us, there was no mention in your description about car park restrictions, but I was allowed to park my vehicle out front. I would have thought that the amount of times I have stayed with Novotel, I would have been given more than a small bottle of water for my stay, bearing in mind there were four of us. Breakfast was very limited and the staff were not willing to make anything that was not already out, (poached eggs and pancakes).

« nice hotel, good staff »

the main problem is the lack of protein rich items on your breakfast buffet

E B. Couples - 10/09/2018 AccorHotels certified review
« E B. »

Very disappointing. We chose the hotel as we have always been happy with other Novotel hotels in the past. 1 The air conditioning was very poor and we needed a fan to keep cool. 2 We had placed the ‘Do not disturb’ notice on the door one morning but someone still came in to restock the water. We found this to be an invasion of our privacy. 3 We had requested a wake up call for 4 am on the morning of our departure but it never happened. When we questioned this on checking out, the gentleman double checked the list and said he didn’t know why we hadn’t received the call. Thank goodness we hadn’t relied solely on this as we could have missed our flight! To be honest, we found our next hotel - the Premier Inn (budget hotel at Gatwick airport) was half the price, great air conditioning and staff were twice as efficient.

« All good until checkout »

This was just a one night stay. I have used this hotel before and always tend to try to stay in Accor group hotels. The welcome, room and all aspects of the stay were good. As we had an early departure for the airport we opted for fast check out so that we could just drop the keys the next morning. The bill which has been emailed to me includes 30€ for two breakfasts which we did not have. I emailed 2 days ago to point out the error. I still haven't received a response or acknowledgment. Not good.

« Poor service. Uncomfortable pillows. No toiletries. »

Would not stay there again, nor would I recommend staying there. Had to ask for toiletries several times, reception was not good at helping us understand the area or move around and pillows were very uncomfortable. Air conditioning was very loud, which prevented us from getting a good night sleep.

« Ok »

Not a badly situated hotel for a trip to Bordeaux. However who designed the breakfast area? So cramped there was no room to eat at 9 o'clock and yet lots of poorly used space in the lobby area nearby. Needs redesigning. We paid quite a lot for breakfast. Nobody checked we had paid, so why did we bother? Difficult to get to the buffet area anyway as so cramped. Therefore difficult to get any food. There are only two small lifts for an 8 storey hotel which I think is not enough. And although there is a security device in the lift for inserting card to access floors it is not working. I think with such an badly designed unsurveyed lobby area this should be working. Staff pleasant enough but overworked.

« A very pleasant stay »

A very nice hotel , close to the old part of the city . The rooms were good although we did have trouble with the plumbing . Staff friendly and helpful . Breakfast more than adequate .

« Nice hotel »

Nice hotel, simple amenities. If two people are in a room there should be two bottles of water. Breakfast was just ok.

« Clean but outdated »

Rooms clean, service great. Our room had a seperate toilet with no washbasin, and the toilet room door was so close to the toilet. No USB charging in rooms.

AbiP-W Family - 28/08/2018 TripAdvisor review
« Standard Novotel. Helpful, English-speaking staff »

Booked this hotel for 1 night driving North through France on a family holiday.The staff all spoke excellent English and were helpful in directing us to the carpark (€15 for the night and plenty of spaces) and in recommending an excellent restaurant.Breakfast had a good selection of continental and local foods, and a section which seemed to be where you fry your own egg.I liked the way the sofa bed made a twin bed so unlike Novotels we've used in the UK my 2 children didn't have to share a double bed.We were provided with a map of the town and several restaurant recommendations within a 15 minute walk.A lovely stop which I don't hesitate to use again if in the area.
