“Average hotel with value as its best feature”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

This is a typical 'stop off' hotel for one or two nights only. The wonderful city of Lyon is about 15-20 minute drive away and the local area doesn't have much to offer. The pool looks inviting in the photos but in reality its small and surrounded by a fence so any poolside bathing is not possible. The hotel was clean but the breakfast probably the worse Ive had in France. Little choice, poorly displayed food with empty platters and awful vending machine tea and coffee. Generic cold cuts of meat with pale tasting cheese wedges and non descriptive cereals, simply awful. Again, a one night stop off choice but nothing else.

Room Tip: Stay in the city if you can as there is nothing around this hotel.

We stayed at this hotel as an in-between stop when travelling to south of France for holiday. Check-in / check-out was very efficient (our kids got a small present at the staff, really exciting them :-)
The room was ok, not to big with 2 children, but ok.
We used the swimming pool. We did not have dinner at the hotel, as we felt there was too little choice for our children. Breakfast was ok next morning.
The location of the hotel is very near close to the route, so was ok as well.

This was a overnight stay on our way from The Netherlands to the Southern Part of France, during our family vacation. Normally, I am very positive about the ACCOR hotel chain, but compared to previous stays at Novotel I grade this hotel as reasonable. There was a mouldy smell in the room. The diner (I ate duck) was served very (too) quickly and the meat was only luke warm. Breakfast was fine. I will not stay is this Novotel the next time. It seems somewhat outdated compared to many other Novotels.

Wow!! Once again this was one of those Hotels we found on the Internet and chose purely for where it was as our stopover during a 12 hour drive.
Lovely big room, King size bed, Air con and a kettle and Earl Grey teabags.....One happy lady here!! The bathroom was a very spacious wet room. The only thing I didn't like was the square pillows, but only because they aren't what we normally use.
The Restaurant had a terrace where Dinner and Breakfast could be eaten by the pool overlooking a secluded garden. The Dinner we had couldn't be faulted, the food was delicious. Breakfast was a buffet continental one including all the things you would expect as well as bacon, sausages and scrambled egg. The car park was secure as we had to buzz to have the gate opened to leave!
The staff were friendly and efficient and generally addressed us in French until we struggled then they were quite happy to converse in English.
We would definitely stay here again should it be on our route again, the only downside of our visit is that it was only one night...... I would have loved to have stayed longer. I highly recommend this Hotel.

On our trip to the south of France, we stayed overnight at the Novotel Dardilly/Lyon.
The location is perfect, in the immediate neighbourhood of the route du soleil.
Familyrooms are available at this hotel, which is a huge advantage. Our room was clean and tidy.
Staff is very friendly!
In comparison to former years we've been staying there, breakfast was much better this year! It is served from 06.30 am, which is very convenient for the travellers who want to avoid traffic jams.
Checking out of the hotel, we received four bottles of water which was a nice gesture.

We certainly go back next year!
