typical old style french hotel. good size room broken shower holder. no lighting by table
Close to old town
Had a free car park Very tatty and bathroom so old did not want to shower in it.
This hotel is well located, half-way between the lower town and the old town. Many rooms have balconies with mountain views. The room was very plain. Both the room and the corridors could use a fresh coat of paint. The floor was dirty and there were dirty cobwebs in the bathroom. There were no bedside lamps. The bed was hard.
Staff very pleasant. Location good The room and hotel were very much in need of repair and renovation. The room shower was off the wall due to broken bracket. The bath was dirty with missing big pieces of enamel. The TV was in a bad wall position because the power cable wire would only stretch that far across the wall from the socket! Balcony was dirty and unpainted with broken chairs. The gardens outside were like a scrap yard. My wife nearly divorced me for taking here here. This is a bikers/skiers hostel - no more.
Parking for motos.... small narrow staircase to room 6, akward with all of our bike gear, but room was ok.
Good sized room. Value for money. Could do with a little refurbishment.
The attention and service of the owner/staff was very good. They were quick to provide advice and answerws to our numerous questions and provided a lift for one of our less mobile friends, gratis. There were no provisions for evening meals. The shower head had come away from its fixing therefore you had to hold the shower, but only aminor inconvienience.
Friendlyness and efficiency of the staff
I find the hotel very late at 11 + but the key was there with my name
The welcome was helpful, particularly with help with access to the limited parking area with barrier, The view from our room was beautifull The limited parking arrangements could be mentioned on the website.
It should be empasized that hotel staffs were kind and good at English. Access from railway station is easy.
Perfect city center location. Great breakfast. 10 Euros a day for internet!!!! simply abusing. Beside, internet is advertised as being free on the internet reservation site.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is fresh and modern, with nice design. We really liked the family suite room layout. The hotel has not been open very long, so it seems to need some finishing touches to make it top notch -- for example, the upstairs room in our duplex did not have any shower curtains.
Staff were very helpful; restaurant was excellent The surrounding area was still a building site
The hotel was great, very chic decor and friendly staff. The meal was fantastic..think we all ate too much!
Excellent modern hotel made of wood.
no spa no fluffy dressing goundsstaff don't know whats what we had to sit on bar stools for breakfast because our breakfast was included in the price so we were not good enough to sit with the guest that payed 15 euros in the dinning room.
The staff were extremely helpful. Breakfast was very relaxed and lots of choice. We did not eat in the hotel restaurant but the locals think very highly of it. Our room was very comfortable, we stayed in a suite, and had just the right temperature. It was ideally postioned for both the old town and the pistes. Some hotels we have visited in the past we have suffered with noise from ajoining rooms, but this was not the case for Mont Thabor, we slept soundly every night.
The staff was wonderful. The breakfast wasn't really that good.
The Old Vauban Village and the Fortifications are great. Unfortunatelly I was not able to visit the Park which is just a few steps from the hotel. I would really recomend it for a relaxing tour "au bord de La Durance".
Quite environment Bathroom old style, shower rose is a hand shower
Very nice reception and the parking facility around the corner. Room very nice, but the balcony in bad need of maintanence. The breakfast buffet ok. The restaurant dining room very nice, however the quality of the menu was the worst I ever had in a Logis de France restaurant. Normally in my experience l d f have excellent food in their restaurant. In fact made a complaint directly at Logis de France H.Q.
seemed to be family orientated which we liked, very helpful staff
the evening meal was excellent and the room was very comfortable and spacious breakfast was not value for money
Although an older hotel, the room itself was comfortable, clean and fresh. The restaurant food was well prepared with good service. The road noise quietened down and was not a problem. The bath did not have a curtain to contain splashes from the shower, resulting in a flooded floor. Maybe the contantly-leaking water was the cause of the damp smell in the lobby and stain on the restaurant wall.
Hotel Vauban was a nice hotel, close to the slopes and good location to restaurants and shops. The staff speak english and are only to pleased to help.
Real Log fire, central location, secure parking, good food
The location was very convenient for hiking and exploring the village and mountains. The staff was very friendly. The overall appearance of the hallways and rooms was dark and depressing. Our room, while clean, had a very musty smell that at times was overpowering.
Friendly helpful staff and good breakfast facilities and choice.Good view of the ski slope. The room was quite small and tight even for two people but functional. There was a slighty unpleasant odour on the stair case from reception to 3rd Floor.
good location, nice restarant,
location to our bike journey breakfast was worse than mediocre
Leaving. Disgusting - not very worthy of being called a hotel - let alone The Grand Hotel.there were no beds in our room, only cupboards to make your own- dinner was terribly slow ant there was no hot water - unbelivably bad.
Its very close to the ski Lifts. Has a ski boot drying rack and lockers. Good car park, Nice breakfast, loads of food. Staff Nice, can speak English well and are helpfull. Rooms a little small, but nice enough.
The main attraction is that this hotel is in the old town of Briancon, which is absolutely stunning perched up on the hill. The hotel itself is quite basic, but has the charm of an old french inn. I would think it's very much for skiers, hikers etc who are there to be in the outdoors, pretty good value.
visiting "middle age fortified city" built by famous french architect : Vauban Room was too tiny
A beautiful location in a walled town-wonderful experience to return after many years. Friendly helpful staff & excellent meal & rom.
location good in centre of old town but quite a climb from the main town. Pleasant welcome despite late arrival-willing to prepare something to eat although 10pm. Room was small- but bed comfortable. No lounge/bar in hotel so nowhere in hotel just to sit to read except room.
good restaurant , nice decoration no
The room was rather charming with neat antique furniture, could have done without the ancient mattress. the room's phone did not work (you could dial and receive calls but no sound went through), and they were not too happy when I asked to use the front desk phone to make a toll free call. The phone was also irritating the next morning - the staff did not notify us of checkout times, but they did call us numerous times in the morning to see if we were going to leave soon (it was still before 11 when we actually left).
Modest, but well-run little hotel, located in the heart of the old city. Rooms are basic and would need to be refurbished, but remain perfectly acceptable. Staff was helpful. Breakfast was fine.
I liked having the kitchen so that we could eat in occasionally. The apartment was modern and it very good shape. The associated Spirit Bar and another bar next door generated noise levels that ranged from noticeable to obnoxious, including an end of season party with a DJ that lasted until after midnight. With no air conditioning, the windows had to be left open and it was quite loud.
The reception was wonderful. Location was very difficult. to find
