    • Stayed 1 night

    The glass front door was cracked and had not been repaired. One lift was still out of order since mid-July. Breakfast service was poor : the scrambled egg and bacon ran out and was not refilled at any time that we were in the restaurant, the tables were not cleared, the knives were too blunt to cut the apples. The lamp in our room had a broken switch but it was replaced quite quickly. But why hadn't it already been spotted?

    Good location if you want to avoid the Boulevard Peripherique around Paris. It took us just 4 hours from here to Zeebrugge. The room was fine but the hotel is dated and in need of repair. It could be so much better.

    The eggs at breakfast were very over cooked but otherwise the breakfast was ok. Room size was small, and we had the Junior Suite with an extra child bed set up in the middle, which understandably left little room around it.

    Helpful staff. Opened up access to pool table for us to use. Nice woodland setting.

    Requested a single large bed but got two singles. Hotel says Booking.com is to blame because it’s system does not relay requests properly.

    Simply pleasant. A hotel in Paris like this would be over 200€ a night and still not as clean and quiet.

    The breakfast was poor. The only hot food seemed to be scrambled eggs, which were not restocked when they ran out. They booked me a taxi which charged about 3 times the going rate for the 20 minute journey I took.

    15 minute walk from the train station. Old fashioned hotel, but you get what you pay for. The dinner was pretty good and reasonably priced.

    Unfortunately, when we arrived one of the glass entrance doors was badly cracked as if struck by something. It may have happened recently and they are waiting for a replacement. There was a slight ‘drain odour’ in the foyer & in the lift ( but nowhere else)Again they may have been waiting for the problem to be attended to, but It wasn't a very good first impression. A lot of people arrived at the same time for dinner so the sole waiter had an extremely busy time rushing around & our aperitif arrived just a few minutes before our starter was served!

    The grounds are nice. The staff were friendly & polite. The room was on the small side but clean & quiet at night & the bed comfortable & had a nice little balcony overlooking the grounds. The bathroom clean if a little ‘tired’ but a good hair dryer. etc. The hand basin had a generous space to the side for putting down one’s toileteries. The dinner was tasty when it arrived, but there was only one waiter taking orders & serving. The buffet breakfast had plenty of choices.

    There was some construction going on during the day so it was very noisy. Luckily I was leaving soon for a wedding so I didnt experience too much of it The taxi I arranged with the hotel did not pitch, that was diasappointing.

    Rooms are clean and neat. Loved that I had a big balcony looking out to the lush garden, that was a highlight

    A bit tired, windows dirty (even broken), in need of its planned refurbishment - breakfast expensive for what you got and the evening restaurant closed.

    • Business trip
    • Solo traveller

    A very bad smell coming from somewhere in the hotel. On the ground floor it was awful, and the reception tried to make it with spray but if didn't work. On the higher floors, it was noticeable in the hallways. It smelled like sewage. My stay was 4 days but there were several days the odor lasted lessening each day. This hotel is ok but if you plan to go out even just into the center of town, you'll need a car. After 12am. No available taxi. You might be able to find a random person acting as a taxi (clandestine).

    The beds are super comfortable. Heat was operational inside the room.

    Restaurant closed from mid July-August, we had to go to the basic steakhouse across the street.

    Location near the forest, the swimming pool, the tennis court, the room (junior suite), the staff, all good. Room and bathroom impeccably clean and excellent bed quality. The main lobby is oldish but you don't really need to hang out there. Breakfast is basic, but sufficient for a continental breakfast, including eggs and bacon.

    We were not able to have dinner in the hotel, due to the hotel's lack of staff available to cater for their hotel guests, because of a large function taking place at the same time. Also, not being told that this hotel finished breakfast at the rediculous time of 9.30am!

    The dinner was offered with a tricky menu chart where it seems that they offer a lot of choice but where only one specific track was menu price , any other choice lead to a double price. Wine glasses were very expensive while only 1 choice for red and white seemed to be abaivlable (according to the person who served . So probably it is better to go to the steakhouse just opposite to the hotel (rather than to the hotel restaurant.
