  • 2.0.Poor

    2 star hotel (at best)

    Horrible, horrible, horrible. I used to come here about ten years ago, and loved it. Now EVERYTHING is awful! Ceiling leaking, restaurant is a joke, air conditioning does not work, and the hotel itself needs to be totally remodeled/rebuilt. It looks like 2 star hotel, and Ibis down the road (same Accord chain) is MUCH BETTER, for 1/3 of the price. Just a really awful hotel...

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    A first real experience in a beautiful setting

    Like most places we've stayed in the Novotel chain, this one is really first rate. It's immaculately clean, well appointed, and staffed by people who are uniformly pleasant easy to deal with. The buffet breakfasts are varied and of high quality. The restaurant has both outdoor and indoor seating and offers a nice array of options. The outdoor portion is well shaded and on a terrace that looks out at the swimming pool and at a vast array of lovely greenery. The bar is well stocked and staffed from around 10 a.m. until 11 in the evening. We have stayed here three times before and will certainly do so again the next time our travels bring us anywhere near Valbonne.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The area near Sophia Antipolis is beautiful with much to do! The buidling is modern and secure. We were welcomed at the front door by staff who provided an easy checkin. When we arrived to our room the air conditioner was not working but they quickly assigned us to a new room where everything ran perfectly. The room was basic but had everything you need including complimentary water. They do have a big eating area that was well decorated but it is extra and we decided to go elsewhere. The pool closes early around dinner time so my kids were disappointed but it looked nice! Overall we would stay here again!

  • 6.0.Good

    Average and good hotel - with basic features

    This hotel is generally acceptable and for £85 is not too bad. The hotel room is pretty basic (no atmosphere) but has a kettle and tea/coffee and also bottle of water complimentary. Novotel's use of brown carpet with some squares or patches makes it look not very clean. Although it has air circulation but no a/c. I tried to use a/c but had no luck. Staff - good and courteous - restaurant good and decent food. Nothing is excellent but good - hence the average mark.

  • 6.0.Good

    Free parking and a warm welcome from staff at check in. Breakfast options was also very nice. However the hotel itself is a little outdated once you start heading up to your room. But if you are looking somewhere near Cannes (as Cannes hotels are expensive!) and you are not fussed too much about the room, this is a good option.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Nice hotel out of the way

    The hotel is in an out of the way location. The pool was very clean. Outside terrace very nice. Children’s playground with tennis courts and table tennis . Reception area very child friendly with pool and football table. Books and games table. Our room was clean but decor very dated and smelt of smoke .
