Nice hotel close to Bordeaux lake

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

jensv825 TripAdvisor review

Novotel Bordeaux Lac is a nice hotel situated very close to the wonderful Bordeaux lake and to the tram station with connection to the city center (10-15 min). We stayed at the hotel for 12 days in July 2022 and we have these comments. Room: Nice size, air con is working perfectly, beds are a bit firm. Pool: Small and a bit shabby. Noisy children everywhere. Table tennis: Old bats and no balls. The staff does not have access to new balls. Restaurant: Expensive and the food is not impressive or tasty. Reception: Due to the firm beds, we asked for top mattresses. It took the hotel 3 days to come with thin roll mattresses, whish was not at all satisfactory. We had to buy our own top mattresses, expense 55 euros.

The hotel, on appearance, is acceptable. We were booked fro 3 nights. The first evening we went to the restaurant and were disappointed at the lack of choice and variety on the menu, the standard of the food was passable. The waiting staff seemed tired but trying hard to please. The next morning at breakfast the plates were not clean and had dried debris from the previous day, the food was alright but the “hot” food was tepid (scrambled eggs, sausages) and there was no bacon left. That evening the restaurant was serving a buffet. We booked a table early and when we arrived we seated by the entrance next to the food. We asked if we could move to another table inside or onto the terrace we were told all tables were booked and that was not possible. This was not true, few people were there whilst we were an even fewer outside - why would a restaurant deliberately inconvenience their guests (maybe the waiter had a problem with women or English people)? The food was pitiful; carrot rapee without any dressing (dry grated carrots), beef with sauce moutarde (no sauce visible or available when requested, just a shoulder shrug), dry tomato and cheese lump salad, a pasta salad and another dry salad, no real choice or variety of food. The hot part of the buffet was cold (well tepid); new potatoes, leeks (no sauce), salmon or a kebab. The meat on the kebab was practically raw (brown on the outside and red and bleeding in the middle) when my parterre requested if it could be cooked a little more the reply was once again a shrug of the shoulders and walk away (I do speak french so language was not the barrier). We were deeply unhappy with the meal and our treatment by one particular (seemingly senior) member of staff. Our glass mugs had been removed from the room and it took until the next morning to find them (they were handed back uncleaned). There was water dripping from the ceiling in that morning, I mentioned it to the maids who seemed to find it funny. We were booked for a third night but were not prepared to waste another days holiday or the money in this hotel. This hotel might be acceptable for a one night stop over.

Possible to reach by tram from Bordeaux Central Station

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Echologist TripAdvisor review

The hotel is north of Bordeaux and can be reached by tram within 25 minutes from the Central Station. When we visited, it took a litte bit longer due to constructions. The hotel is near the Bordeaux Lac - great for walking, cycling and swimming. It also has a mall and restaurants nearby. The hotel also has a pool which was open two of the three days when we were there, because of cleaning the filter. The sizes of the room are standard for the Novotel-Chain, for a family of four it might get really cozy. The hotel offers several games for children, which were greatly appreciated, such as an Xbox in the lobby and a chess outside on the lawn. Wifi did not work all the time. The choices of snacks at the restaurant is quite small - only plates of cheese, meat or mixed. However, the restaurant buffet is quite extensive, with lots of options. The breakfast is also great, but tends to get very crowded. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
