We stayed bungalow. The room was very large and quiet. Air condition works Ok. Excellent restaurant with imposing wine list, but little bit expensive.
outdoor pool Room in roofspace hot; air con not working. No response to my complaint. Discovered we were in cheaper room than 98€ room expected - but still expected to pay higher price because booked online!
The Pool Service, the lake, the surrounding restaurants
Very good restaurant and good service.
Great staff. Great food!
Disain, hotel staff, sauna, jacuzi, etc. Any Single-phase outlet inside the rooms... :(
A quiet and scenic location.
Standard of room
A beautiful new hotel . Designed in a very special way. The scenery out the windows around is spectacular. There were some problems with the instructions to get there. Also, it is located in some industrial area so arrival is not very welcoming, but the hotel is nice ans so is the owner.
Location and surroundings. Very nice and welcoming staff. Not something to complain about, but the breakfast is typically french.
The hotel itself is very beautiful, the rooms are very modern and pretty large. The view is superb from the eating room, but the hole hotel is placed at the edge of a business zone (a downer, but if you can forget it or if you have a room facing the open fields, it's no problem) You can see the owners do their maximum, but don't have much time for you. (business zone, see above)
very new hotel, centrally located to a few major mountains for ski. captivating views. highly recommend since the hotel is very new, the signs and directions nearby are not very well marked
New hotel, struggling to get everything in place (only 1 menu in the restaurant, airco not yet working , directions to hotel not up to date).Has potential under professional staff.
Very nice, modern and quiet Hotel with very friendly staff members. Very good kitchen too! Nice view on the little village Chorges.
Spotlessly clean. Would have liked a choice of meal on a Sunday night
We liked the modern design of the hotel and the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms. We booked early and had a lovely view (but on the other side of the hotel you have a view onto a building firm). Nice looking tv but very few channels and poor quality.
The pretty small lake close by Small room. The swiming pool was a joke. Millions of mosquitoes at night. Absurdly overpriced. We were supposed to have a lake view and it wasn't true.
Nice setting in the mountains facing a pond and also close to Lac de Serre-Poncon. Fairly ambitious menu in the dining room and generous breakfast buffet (for 10 Euros per person). Accomodating staff. Large outdoor patio and pool would have been pleasant in good weather, which we didn't have for our one-night stay. Clearly intended to host people for vacation stays of at least several days. Not really. Perfectly acceptable 3-star hotel.
1. Hotel Staff is very very kind and helpful! 2. Thumbs Up for the pool as well 1. Rooms are probably the same as they day they were built. 2. Rooms smell a bit. 3. Rooms are small
Comfortable, close to lake with own swimming pool and gardens, easy parking. We would have preferred a hotel with air conditioning but there were none in the area.
Staff were very helpful when transport broke down. The evening meals were a delight.
The restaurant, nice room with a classy bath, relaxed and cool atmosphere. Good service, all staff very polite and helpful. No air condition
Hotel is on the central square in a wonderful little town. Breakfast good. Reception is on the first floor. Room a little noisy because of crowds in the square until early morning; however, this is also part of its charm.
the v iew lack of hospitality skills, no elevetor
Location, friendly owner, traditional decor
Friendly and helpful staff/owners, warm rooms, heating ski storage, free wifi and free parking, great location Blankets and sheets instead of a duvet, badly regulated hot water when toilet flushed (dangerous),
Authentic feeling in an older hotel, yet clean I thought the price was a high.
Very nice village, lovely shops and restaurants, well-kept hotel, very easy car access to the skiing resort of Pra Loup. Little parking available close-by, we often had to search the streets for a spot and never managed to get a spot in the carpark in front of the hotel. We also got fined for parking on one street despite a complete absense of any warnings or "no parking" signs. The hotel has a ski adf boot storage room, however you have to go up to reception to ask for the key every time and the room is very cold, hence the boots don't dry out overnight. The owner of the hotel was very stroppy about taking ski boots up to the room, in fact he flew in a rage at the very mention of it, claiming the boots were wet and hence not allowed up there. Despite the fact that the shoes we were wearing on our feet were wet and muddy.
The hotel was in a good, central location within the town of Barcelonnette. The quality of bedlinen was poor, with no seperate pillows, just a stuffed roll with the bedlinen rolled around it. I also found insects inside the blanket and was botten several times.
Cycling in the Alps
central location, clean, nice old compact small city, great family restaurant & breakfast. car park. great stop over for french alps tour. smell from pipes in room
Good location and attentive staff. Rooms were clean and fresh. Hotel was centrally located in the small town. Food was generally good. Tax formed over 10% of the total bill. As well as these hidden costs please be aware that the credit card machine did not work and we had to pay cash. Our cards worked at all other machines during our stay in France.
The hotel is situated in an interesting old building which had character. It is near restaurants and the town itself is very pleasant. Our room had a comfortable bed. Due to the layout of the town centre, the hotel is difficult to reach by car.The shower door in our room did not fit properly and leaked water onto the floor. The decor of the room needed renewal. However, none of these points spoiled our stay.
Friendly and courteous staff Difficult to find, below average room and and very average food
the restaurant was very good room smelled of and felt little damp and there was no hair dryer. We stayed in three different places in the alps - this was the most expensive while being the most basic hotel / b&b so maybe not the best value for moneyconsidering it was supposed to be 3 star accommodation
The ambiance, the friendliness of the staff The beds were not comfortable. i would have glady stayed an extra night if I had slept better.
The food was excellent. Great location, next to ski rental shop and ski lift. Easy parking. Good facilities all around. Twin rooms did not have equal size beds.
Nice ambiance, friendly people, good buffet breakfeast a bit oldish style but has it's charm; rooms are not very well isolated from noise
Location & good food. No
The service and the personalized attention, the setting, the view. It was an overall nice expierience!
An absolutely beautiful setting and very nice staff. None.
The reception was very friendly, a cosy place with a nice restaurant and nice surroundings We made a reservation for a superior room with an upgrade to a deluxe room, however upon arrival the room was not even close to superior let alone deluxe! We complained and were given a deluxe room with an additional fee of eur 40!!
be very exact about services quoted, specially in the restaurant
Everything - beautiful hotel, fantastic food and excellent friendly service. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a peaceful break in beautiful surroundings Only set meal available on dinner menu. Although this was a fantastic, gastronomic delight, as we were there for 3 nights, we did not want this every night. A lighter, a la carte option would have been welcome
The Maitre d was a charming stand out amongst the staff, he also had excellent English and joked kindly about the standard of my French whilst still giving encouragement to learn the language!!! Unfortunately new building work at the rear of the hotel meant that the "tranquility" expected was not there and we were awakened by drilling and or banging at 7:30am every morning other than Sunday. A real shame as everything else about the hotel was up to expectations.
service, food and wine were all wonderful. We stayed here last year and it more than lived up to our memories. Large extension planned for next year including luxury spa. Can't wait! The restaurant is one of the best we have found in the area - the gourmet menu is superb.
the room is beautiful, antique and very spacious and clean. the surroundings were also fantastic. the chef's comments when he found out we wouldn't try his food.
Honest, clean service, helpful service Very limited facilities ie no satelite tv, no fridge
Location, landscape works outside: full of dust impossible to use terrasse for breakfast
Recommended by friends whom visit now 10 years. Excellent chef and cusine. Great walks and views. We were not told it was a fixed evening dinner menu when we reserved or arrived. Owners do not seem to like foreigners even those with 20 years French and live 2 hours from the hotel like us. We and other non-French were treated differently. I would only recommend this hotel to French friends and for the great cusine.
Provided a comfortable, peaceful overnight stay while travelling between destinations. We enjoyed the views of the mountains and lake nearby. Buffet dinner was very basic and process not explained on arrival regarding purchasing voucher. Little information was provided on arrival about the hotel's facilities. The majority of the clientel age group was elderly. The distance from the main reception to room excessive especially when carrying luggage.
The view. It really should be advertised as a hotel for seniors. There was not one person there under 60. The main activity was to play bingo. There appeared to be dance classes but it is beyond me how the people that I saw, who could hardly walk, would participate in a dance class. The hotel staff were aloof and unconcerned to the point of rudeness.
The pool, sauna and hammam free, the beautifull view of the mountain
Fantastic views of mountains and ideal base for touring the alps. Would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to our friends.
Fantastic setting, alpine views all around.Easy and difficult walks straight from the hotel front door. Lots of facilities, gym, indoor swimming pool, internet, games etc. During my stay, the place was full of very elderly people, although with the facilities available, I am sure this was to do with the timing of my stay. There was only one choice, plus a vegetarian choice for the evening meal, and it was served rather like in a works canteen, although it was reasonably priced.
good location, good sized rooms. The staff were friendly and helpful. Good facilities for family the kitchen cupboards are all kept locked
good inhouse pool and gym, breakfast buffet, majority of guest part of travel groups age 65+ very small room, bathroom needs renovation, long walking distance from parking to room with very slow elevator, WiFi only in reception area, hotel few kilometers outside the village
