Stayed here last August with my Husband (1 night only) on our return trip to England, after a lovely tour of France and Spain. On arrival at the hotel there was a very rude French man trying to push in front of other visitors at the reception desk and the staff did nothing. Useless they were. When we eventually got...

I've already filled in a survey about this hotel but I wanted to do it again on here! This is a lovely Novotel Hotel. A great stopover from UK to Spain. Clean, comfortable, great shower and bath products and extremely helpful staff. We booked an executive room and got free minibar with robes and slippers. I was really grateful for...

The hotel has been remodeled (I think about 2 years ago). Very good value for money, comfortable rooms, nice restaurant and bar area. All the people working there are pleasant and very helpful and will go out of their way to find solutions to your questions or problems. The parking is well secured, which is a plus in Bordeaux. Overall,...

I have stayed in the Le lac area many times but not in the Novotel. I was pleasantly surprised with the standard of the accommodation and breakfast facilities. The rooms are basic but clean and tidy. It has large breakfast area with a good choice of food and drinks. The hotel has a secure car park and feels safe. The...

We had always had very good experiences with the Novotel brand, and this hotel was no exception - in fact, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised that it surpassed even our expectations. Check-in was a breeze, and the children's entertainment corner had a variety of toys for every age from infants to even teenagers with its game consoles. The...

After a day in the car you can cool down in the pool. We booked 2 nights so the next day we took the tram (stop in front of hotel) into the city. Bordeaux is nice. Worth a visit. At the end of that day we took a dive in the pool right before it closes at 10 pm. Room...

the hotel was a typical Novotel. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were reasonably comfortable. The bar was OK. The down side for me was the distance from the town centre - about 20 minutes by tram - it costs 6 euro return and the tram was frequent and convenient but I would have preferred a hotel...

Good morning, Thank you so much for your comment after your stay at Novotel Bordeaux Lac. Actually, our hotel is in outskirts of the downtown. So it is not possible to visit the city on foot. Tramway is a really good compromise. We are sorry that our hotel did not meet your expectation to this point. Kind regards, Kristoph Leroux
