Of all the Novotels we have stayed at in France, this is one of the best. We spent four days in La Rochelle, including new years eve, and never at any moment made the staff at this hotel make us feel like just another nuisance during the holiday season, spoiling their fun. Staff was around plenty and helpful at all...

The Hotel is really average. From the outside the Building Looks good. Inside all Korridors Need renovation, especially the carpeting is a no go. The interior Needs more Attention. The bar staff is a catastrophie. No interest in the guest.

A good sized room on the ground floor made it easy for me to trundle in and out in my powered wheelchair. Shower good but, as is common, the bathroom floor was smooth and like an ice rink when wet - quite dangerous for me with my limited mobility.

This Novotel in comparison to the one in Caen is excellent. Clean room. Very convenient situation close to La Rochelle centre. Decent value. Only downside is overpriced breakfast which is just not worth the money.

Stayed here on a stop over heading down the west coast of France. Nice enough hotel in a good little location a short walk to town. Room smelt a bit like stale cigarettes which was a shame but due to just staying the one night weren't going to complain. Wouldn't stay for any longer than a night as the price...

Nice hotel situated a short walk from La Rochelle centre. Staff were efficient and friendly. Had a problem in room on first evening and staff immediately arranged a fix. Pool is small but it's a short walk to the beach anyway. Not worth paying extra for the pool unless you have kids.
