We stayed here for one night in August - the weather at our rented holiday home further north near Cahors was poor so we decided to make for the coast for a couple of says where Meteo France was predicting good weather.
Having had a great day on the beach we needed an overnight hotel and pleasingly we were able to secure 2 rooms at the Novotel without pre booking. So what was it like ? It is not in a great part of Narbonne unless you like retail parks so nowhere to walk to or anything to see locally. There is a large car park covered in CCTV - great, inspires confidence.
The reception staff were super friendly, helpful and courteous - no offhand grumpy staff here. The rooms were clean and air conditioned - standard Novotel room but non the worse for that.
We all made use of the small unheated pool - reception provided pool towels free of charge and were able to book a table for the 5 of us on the terrace for an evening meal.
The bar staff were again very polite - but ouch the drinks are expensive 7 euros for a large beer. The evening meal was surprisingly good, nothing too adventurous but my steak frites was well cooked and the family all enjoyed their meals too. Wine prices were also steep.
Breakfast was mind blowingly expensive 15euros a head - so we ducked out and went into the city centre and found a cafe - a large creme and croissant for 2 euros being much more like it !!
So to conclude would we stay again - yes we would for one or possibly two nights - felt safe and clean, food was decent but do watch some of the prices. The highlight was undoubtedly the charming and friendly staff who all spoke excellent English.
