Enjoyed staying there, and children had fun in the pool. Decoration was a little tired in the rooms, but otherwise not bad.
Location and facilities
The pool was excellent and available until late. As a family they were very helpful and the breakfast was excellent.
Very impressed with helpfulness and friendliness of hotel staff
The facillites, the service, and value for money
Friendliness of staff, food. We felt very comfortable.
Well located. Had a nice "Aviation" theme to it but still very traditional French underneath it all, including the decor (ie not necessarily UK taste). Food at dinner was acceptable and good value in comparison to the other restaurants in town. La Bourboule has the air of a town marching slowly to its death, with many hotels closed over the last 10 years and some much more recently, including 2 in the small street occupied by the "Aviation". This is not untypical of France though. Good little pool in the basement. Has a garage. Breakfast was rushed by the hotelier taking the food away before we had time to finish. Granted this was because it was getting near to 0930hrs, but we weren't asked if we wanted more before the food was removed. Hotel good for families.
Comfortable bed, swimming pool, quiet location We were given a fairly stern lecture on what is not allowed in the hotel on arrival - which was very unwelcoming. No kettle/drinks facilities in the room.
We had a really pleasent stay and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Comfortable room, quiet location though near village centre, good on road parking.
Nice staff, clean room It was a bad breakfast for the price, no real coffee. One does not pay 7 euro or was it 8 for instant coffee from a machine had I known I would have not taken the breakfast
warm and freindly
There were no surprises, We got what we expected and what was offered on the website. Position in town was good and there was no problem parking at this time of year. The hosts were welcoming and friendly. Since the change of law with regard to smoking in France it has taken a while for the smell of smoke to disappear.
Clean and nice owners, easy to find, very helpful
Friendly staff, overall atmosphere was good. Staff put themselves out to accommodate my request for specially early breakfast. Car parking was restricted.One reason this hotel was chosen was WiFi facility but this was not available! Manager let me use her computer once to check my email but I was very disappointed not to have this facility in my room as advertised. It was difficult to book an evening meal as every time I asked I was too late. More flexibility in this respect would pay dividends.
The room was clean and the food very good.
The 'Bell epoch' appeal and its position in the town centre, my room overlooking the back/garden/wood/hills was very quiet - able to have window open at night without any disturbance. Nicely surprised by the size/ standard and facilities of the room. The flat screen T.V. was amazing - see negative comments. Madam is quiet charming - but see negative comments below. No air con (though as the town is relatively high this might not be a problem) but a few days earlier Southern France was registering 33-34 on the plains. Thought the Breakfast was overpriced but they did have real filter coffee - not out of some glorious multi miss-functional machine. Warning, though Madam spoke English most of the staff were French only speakers as you would expect. Re Flat screen T.V./computer, as a computer literate person with a range of 'hi-tec' products I was completely puzzled by the facilities on the integral T.V. computer as there was no instructions in any language - so leave an hour before wanting to watch something to get your head round the controls.
Our room was warm, quiet and comfortable, with lots of space to spread out and very well decorated. The staff were very friendly, and the hotel is located very close to all of the major attractions in La Bourboule The car park wasn't as large as the hotel claimed, although this wasn't really a concern for us as there were very few people staying in the hotel.
Good free internet connection, easy to park, small shower, expensive breakfast 9 euros each
Staff very friendly and helpful. Access to restaurants and shops very good.Hotel warm and comfortable and very well run.
location was right in town, good walking access to the main street. Excellent free secure parking.
Hotel was clean, warm and comfortable with friendly staff and a good restaurant. It was nice and close for our skiing.
nothing at all it was horrible and priced way over the top for this cheap hotel misserable decoration extremely small en suite facillitiesdrab room poor poor value
Very friendly staff and good service and food Room very small and cramped - could supply a fan in hot weather.
Regional food with a large enough menu for several nights stay. Quiet location, though still convenient for access to all roads. Parking is provided in a secure area and is free. Room was on the small side for a three night stay.
The spa was great, convenient for Mount Dore sking, staff relaxed. English speaking and instructions on the hotel in English.
The rooms were exceptionally clean as were the leisure facilities. The car park worked on a security gate at the rear of the hotel and was easily accessible to unload ski equipment at the end of the day. Just a tip...if you go in Feb half term consider driving up to the slopes to ski as the free bus is absolutely packed and there were almost riotous moments as everyone crammed to get in with no queing system. The last return bus from Le Mont Dore every day is horrendous to try to get on although they do send another one up if people are still waiting. Also book your ski hire prior to travelling if you are going to hire it at the top of the resort. La Godille is the ski shop close to the bus stop and ski school. If you leave it to late they actually run out of equipment. If staying in La Bourboule then Sun & Ski in the town is your best option and far less crowded. In addition if you get to the slope on the Sunday, that is the first day of the ski school and the queing is diabolical for ski passes and ski school. Book ski school in advance as you may find all the classes full. Sometimes we queued for up to an hour for some of the lower slope lifts. a fantastic resort for beginners but do yourself a favour and don't go in school holidays!!!!!
everything.what a nice little hotel in the town of la bourboule.all they wanted to do was please,nothing would have been to much for them
Spaceous, clean, centrally located, - excellent base for exploring the town and with the sound of the Dordogne river in your room. Not fancy but absolutely fine.
Good location and plenty of parking
Incredibly friendly and helpful staff
Very clean, plenty of room for a family. No staff on arrival at check in. This was fine except that there was no way of getting into the car park. The threats to charge a large cleaning fee if the room wasn't left spotless were rather draconian!
Needed seperate towels for the pool
Indoor swimming pool (small) and jacuzzi. Noise tight windows. Located across the river of an amazing creperie (La Guinguette). Very small room. Bathroom needs a renovation (eg. loose slide bar in the shower). Only basic breakfast buffet.
The room was very clean and tasefully decorated and quiet The food I.E. dinner was a bit disappointing, also the breakfast was not value for money and very little effort was put into it only croissants and bread no cheese (extra) laughing cow or other would have been good also yogurtI know it was out of season but a bit more effort would have been not a lot of trouble
Quality of food Unable to process our credit cards (two couples, two cards)
Service in the reception was very good and we got an impression it was a very nice and clean hotel. Zero.
Excellent food. Superb menus and attentive service.
