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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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 More

Fairly nice and modern we had no complaints, it did the job for for us. It is just a place to stay outside of the main town which doesn't cost a fortune and gives you easy access in and out.
