    • Superior Double Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    Our check-in started with the receptionist who was eating, then he was smoking outside to the view of guests and drinking cofee from the breakfast room... Our room was dirty, the kids sofa beds were dirty due to non use for a while i guess. This is the result of a very poor managment. The Hotel deffinitly needs a lot off maintenance too. We where supposed to stay 2nights but we left after one night. This is NOT a Novotel standar.

    Nothing. Everything was perfect.

    Extremely comfortable beds, amazing breakfast, quiet and clean facilities everywhere, at a very reasonable rate. Excellent especially if you travel with kids, as usual in Novotel Hotels, but especially in this case.

    Bathroom and especially the shower and bathtub looked like they were from the 90s (room 339) ... didn't expected that from a 4 stars hotel.. There was a spider crawling on my bed which I had to kill Carpet in the room has stains ... which doesn't give a good impression ....

    Breakfast was good .. plenty of options to choose from Bed was super conformable.

    Hotel very old, needs renovation, does not deserve 4 stars. Staff unkind, unprofessional. Superior double room (intended for 2+2) too small for four. Cleanliness on low level. Breakfast unvaried, poor.

    The room we initially got smelled like smoke, they did accomodate us however in another room. The hotel is very dated, certainly not 4 star.

    Seriously, you have to be very careful about being charged the right amount at the restaurant. The younger guy made not one but 3 very strange mistakes and later when we complained an ordered a salad, the salad had a very strange smell (I do not want to mention what it smells of but you can imagine). My girlfriend ate some of it and later became sick. The restaurant staff in general seems to hate their job and rarely smiles. The rooms are a bit outdated and the bathroom too small. I have been to Novotel several times but this one wasn't my favorite and I wouldn't return but mostly because of the strange salad experience we had.

    The bed was nice, the surrounding parks are good for a workout and walk.

    The hotel goes through a series of cost-cuttings and it shows. You have to ask for almost everything, including shampoo.

    Dinner. Go for the plate of the day and you never have it wrong. But do not expect great things for breakfast.

    Not the cheapest of Novotel's, although not surprising for August in the south of France. Officially a 4* but more like a comfortable 3*.

    Tucked away in the pine trees to the north of Antibes in what appears to be a technology park. Wonderful location but standard Novotel. Hard to criticize as it includes the usual air con, good desk, free WIFI, free parking, sofa, tea making equipment and tissues. Facilities also include a pool, tennis court and attractive restaurant with outdoor seating area.
