I chose this hotel for its easy access to the motorway system and proximity to the ferry port. I also knew and liked the brand. We weren’t disappointed though the extortionate cost of breakfast (€16.50 each - the highest by far we encountered in France - far more expensive even than a waterside hotel on Ile de Ré) has us scurrying for an alternative.

Stopped here for two days before travelling down the Vendee.

Hotel is adjacent to the lovely Parc de Brequignay, which is great for a stroll around, my daughter particularly enjoyed the zip wire.

Opposite is the Alma shopping mall which satisfied the other half’s shopping fix.

Ten minute walk to the nearest Metro which is easy to use and good value at 5 euros for a family of three for a days pass.

The hotel itself is clean and looks recently refreshed.

Our room was a superior room which had ample space for three, a good bathroom, was tastefully decorated and had comfortable beds.

Breakfast gave plenty of choice and the food was good quality.

We also had an evening meal which was superb.

The pool area was a great place to enjoy the sun, the pool isn’t heated but with temperatures around the 30 degree mark we appreciated the cooling dip.

Staff on reception were very helpful providing extra towels when asked, giving directions and advice on where to go in Rennes.

Gregory in the restaurant gave first class service and was very friendly.

Recommended, and should we return to Rennes we will stay here again.

Clean hotel, good parking. The pool is small with a very strong suction port which could cause injury! Nice touches with kids play area and touch screen table computer. Good breakfast. The room was a bit cramped. The restaurant was closed when we visited which was a shame.

We were planning our holiday in France and it involved a long drive from Cherbourg to the campsite so we were looking for a hotel to break up the drive. This hotel fitted the bill geographically as it is right beside the junction needed to head for the Vendee area of France. The hotel is not big but is very nice with a small outdoor swimming pool. My children were delighted to jump in and cool off after we ate dinner outside. I was worried about the selection of food as we have a few picky eaters but it was fine. I thought it would be expensive but it was very reasonable. Not the sort of place you would sit with a pint as they are dear and the bar has no atmosphere. It is what it is - there is no big bar culture in France. The rooms were lovely and clean and spacious - with plenty of natural light. Next day my wife was delighted - the hotel is next door to a massive shopping complex and you can easily kill 3 hrs wandering around in clothes shops, sports shops, coffee shops etc etc all in all a great place for a stopover as you don't have to navigate the centre of Rennes and worry about parking! thanks for the great stay Novotel Rennes Alma

If you are traveling by car, no worries, the hotel has a big parking and it is free of charge.
But... This hotel is not what a Novotel should be, this is not a 4 stars hotel. I have been to other two Novotel hotels (Bucharest & Geneve), but this one is far from them. The set-up of the room is very basic, there are no slippers, no ironing board, vanity set or sewing kit, things that you would normally expect to find. The minibar has only one bottle of water which is for free. There is an outdoor pool, unheated, but nothing like a small gym, spa, etc.
Breakfast is also quite basic, but you would find something, you have freshly pressed juice, different patiserie products, it works.
The nearest metro station is about 15-20 min walking distance, but the good thing is that just accross the street, there is a shopping center and a Carrefour.
The best thing about this hotel is the bed, which is very confortable, I slept very well, plenty of pillows, you can choose.
