Nice size room that was well presented, very friendly staff and convenient location for town and the station. The car park is a bit tight though!

Disappointing service

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Sjohn Couples - 05/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Disappointing - we had high expectations following our stay at Novatels in Rouen and Le Mans in the past. The Spa is very small and can easily get over crowded despite having a booking system. The jacuzzi was not operating properly and we were not informed in advance of this. When it was brought to the attention of one of the Spa staff a shrug of the shoulders was the response. (C'est la vie!). The pool is very small. On our second pre booked visit to the Spa the receptionist was absent so we could not get a locker key for our clothes and had to take them poolside. The bedroom was comfortable and the shower/bathroom was clean and sizeable. However, despite a booking for two people there was only one set of towels put out, no bath mat so floor slippery when you debark from the shower. The safe was not working and despite immediately reporting the defection it took a couple of hours for a member of staff to inspect and provide a replacement - disappointing because we had to take our valuables with us instead of being safely stored. A member of staff used a key to enter the room on our last day whilst my wife was in the shower. When I asked her not to she still proceeded to enter then eventually left. Despite being advertised as unlimited tea and coffee in the room there wasn't any milk and only one tea bag so we had to request more items. We will definitely not be returning!

Very comfortable. Only problem was access in and out of Centre Ville due to construction in progress.

Rm Solo - 19/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

My stay was "fine". The room was clean but well-used (curtain not completely attached, paint chipping etc. normal wear-and-tear, the HDMI and USB ports provided did nto function) and nowhere near as fabulous as the pictures available online suggest. No spa robe provided as shown. My room wasn't ready when I arrived (a half-hour early, so that was to be expected). But after an hour of waiting in the lobby, I went to ask when the room would be ready and they said "Oh, it's been ready", I guess they just forgot I was there waiting? The shower drain was completely clogged and nearly overflowed within 2 minutes of showering. But the bed was comfortable enough, complementary water and coffee/tea was appreciated. Besides the mishap upon arrival, the staff were kind and helpful. I would not stay here again, however.

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Ciaran Couples - 18/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

My husband and I were incredibly impressed with the level of customer service during our two night stay at the Novotel Spa Rennes Centre Gare. Situated in the middle of this very grand city, it was very easy to get around the city with brilliant public transport links and very close to the large train station only 2 minutes away. You cannot hear the station either. Just to point out! Breakfast was fine, the spa was lovely and there is parking available too. We had a little problem with it the card slot in our room, after we were out for the day and we couldn’t turn the lights on. This must of been an accident by the maid. So, we informed reception and because of the inconvenience they upgraded us to a suite across the hallway. This was a really lovely treat and we couldn’t thank them enough. Next time we visit Rennes, we will definitely be back!

Regardless of these strange times (coronavirus and 18h curfew) the experience was great. The room service diner options were excellent and the system well organised. A real pleasure. Looking forward to coming back when we can benefit from all the services offered.

A small oasis in the centre of town

Clean, convienient and friendly. Well apppointed room and deespite being in the middle of town it was quiet and easy to get good nights sleep. Staff were all helpful anbd pleasant. I would certainly recomend this hotel and use for future visits to the area. Car park entrance could be slightly better signposted.

This hotel is central in Rennes and within walking distance of all what is to see and do in Rennes. It's a pure business hotel with very little charm and nice decoration. SPA and pool are in the basement. Parking is convenient but expensive but no other better option exist nearby. 1st room smell tobacco but we got a remplacement room on the stop and an upgrade.

OK stay

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Pominfrance Couples - 11/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

Fine, but swimming pool wasn't available and the jacuzzi wasn't working properly - which was the main reason why we booked this more expensive hotel. Unable to access internet. Good location and close to the metro.

Novotel in rennes-Not as expected.

isabelfl2018 Family - 28/08/2018 TripAdvisor review

The room and the bed were quite confortable. However the washing basin was blocked and the water drainage was extremely slow. They had also forgotten glasses in the bathroom. We needed parking for our automobile and we picked this hotel based on the information on existing paying parking at the hotel. Public parking was not an option for us and we had expressed that in the booking. But when we arrived at dinner time there was no available parking space. After negotiation we were allowed to use a reserved parking space. We had dinner at the hotel and remarkebly the waiter could not give any information about some of the components of the menu of the day (that was handwritten with spelling mistakes). The soup was presented as a gaspacho, but in fact it was a very waterly water melon soup that was extremely sweet. The rest of the meal was also disapointing. The ambiance at breakfast was stressful and the buffet area become too crowded. The waiter used a lot of cleaning spray when cleaning the tables, and the spray had a very strong smell and could potentially cause allergy or an asthma attack. We finished the breakfast as quickly as we could.
