Warm, friendly, efficient welcome at Reception. My being an Accor Card holder meant that I got the usual free drink token. Lovely clean, smoke-free, room with a comfortable bed. Paper coffee cups. :-(

Pretty standard Novotel - just a small cut above a Premier Inn in the UK - you know what you’re getting and what to expect, comfortable rooms with AC etc. But I’d not be tempted by the breakfast at around 15 euros - damned expensive for what you get - better to go to a nearby restaurant and get a...

Stayed for one night on business. The restaurant terrace is lovely but the rest is quite average! Don't order a cocktail the bar - 4 of us did and they weren't very nice, def not worth the money. Rooms are clean and a decent size. Not luxurious but I guess the price reflects that.

Stayed there many times for business. Rooms are clean, but with limited charm. The lobby is great to discuss business for hours without being interrupted every 5 mins. The restaurant is also pretty good with friendly service and nice food, again you can stay there for long discussions.
