    The beds are quite noisy and the pillows are pretty hard and big. If you are 1,85+ you will have a hard time to fit into the bed properly.

    Really nice stuff which is fun to talk with, heartwarming people. Nice old building and pretty silent area.

    The rooms at the back are pokey so be sure to ask for a front room as they have been recently refurbished are well equipped and have a view.

    Gor (Georgette) was our very charming and welcoming host. The whole lakes area is truly spectacular and well worth visiting. Do yourself a favour and stay a few days in Saint-Andres'-Les-Alpes. If you are into paragliding this place is definitely for you!

    No evening meals available, which is a waste of a great dining room, but plenty of options for food nearby.

    The whole ambience of this hotel is relaxed and welcoming, and the building has great character. The owners have done well to upgrade the bedrooms without losing this character. Owner is friendly and helpful. I will return for a longer stay in future, having stayed here twice when passing through the area, and loving it each time. If you want a really chilled out hotel in beautiful countryside this will fit the bill perfectly.

    The corridors and staircase was next on the list for refurbishment.

    The hotel was on a main road and very easy to locate. There was plenty of parking to the front and rear. The owner, spoke good English and was on reception, ready to check us in and help with our bags. He apologised, as the room we had been allocated was on the second floor. The room had been recently refurbished and was lovely and clean. The shower room had also been refurbished and was excellent. There was a kettle and everything required to make a drink. The owner recommended a place for dinner in the nearby town.

    Room was a pleasant surprise. Modern and airy in contrast to the rest of the building which obviously is waiting to be restored . However the staff and owners make up for this as they are extremely kind and helpful.

    This is a fabulous hotel in a beautiful setting. The hotel is very, very clean and serves a beautiful breakfast. We had a huge room with a wonderful shower and bathroom and with great views of the lake and hills. The staff were so friendly and helpful to us, particularly when we had a difficulty with our rental car. The owner speaks excellent English and really helped us. This is our second time to stay and we will definitely return next year.

    At night when coming back from town part of the road is completely dark with no sidewalk and car drive very fast, the hotel cannot be seen until you get very close since there is no illuminated sign.

    Very good breakfast, between the town and the Lake beach so you can reach both in 10 minutes walking. It is only 500 metres from the city center and 1.5 kilometres from the beach. Bathtub in the room.
