    Food was awful & a very limited choice of menu . Too expensive for food received. Rooms are poorly equipped and out of date and shabby with dreadful colour scheme . Trying to be a nice hotel on a budget . But is overpriced and pool was shut when we arrived so unable to use any hotel facilities as just a one night stop over en route.

    Nothing. Just need a car as it is a little outside the town.

    The room was very large with everything you could want. I could have moved in! The use of the pool and steam room was a bonus and very relaxing. It was a great get away for the price. If I lived nearby, I would do it for a weekend regularly!

Reception Staff won't go out there way to help yet the bar staff on a night are much kinder. Overall no one is really interested in you been there and you're not recognised daily. Poor customer service Poor maontainace Poor housekeeping Food was good but poor prices Much better hotels to stay at

    It was expensive given that the hotel itself is quite old - although the price does include spa access, but breakfast is not included which is a shame. There was also no air-con, which made it uncomfortable sleeping as it was 30 degrees while we were there.

    The spa was fantastic - great pool, sauna and steam room. Absolutely beautiful grounds and stunning views of the mountains in all directions. Room was spacious and we were located a short taxi ride or 20-minute walk from the centre of town. Perfect for a short break to beautiful Aix-Les-Bains.

    The room looks very out-dated. The bath-tub drain was blocked so we couldn't drain the water. There were weird sounds at night like the hotel was going to crash (we were at the last floor). The breakfast was very basic buffet. The pool/spa areas was closed when we arrived (9PM) even though it says it would be open all night. And in the morning it was quite crowded so we didn't go.

    • Leisure trip
    • Family with older children

    The staff at the restaurant weren't very welcoming as we turned up towards the later end of the restaurant opening hours. We were told at reception when checking in to make a reservation, later in the afternoon we did that. On entering the restaurant they weren't expecting us because we hadn't made a reservation supposedly (although we had), and the whole restaurant experience was quite awkward. Nonetheless we went to thank the waiters and tip them because we felt like an inconvenience, however we were left alone in restaurant as it seemed the waiters had left. Also, when checking out we were told everything was up to date and paid for.. Assuming that the restaurant costs were going to be billed to our account (after all the waiters weren't there by the end to allow us to pay, and/or explain that we do it when checking out), however after returning home that evening, we recieve phone call from the hotel to say we haven't paid our restaurant bill! Lack of communication all around

    No minibar, but as this hotel is a wellness place, lack of drinks and "non-healthy" food :) does not make any problem.

    The double (twin bed) room is very spacy. A matrass is very comfy The room has a nice terrace (with a table and couple chairs) facing the park. Additionla features: a sofa in the entrance hall (very useful and comfortable, especially, if you travel with children or elderly people) and a small "kitchen" corner with a sink and a fridge.

Upon C/O, I request for a late C/O as it was highly possible for them to do so. The management get back to me with this offer : Pay 50% of the hotel night for an extra 2 hours (C/O at 2PM)... I believe there are other oportunities to get extra revenues from the hotel guests !! Especially, when you spend 200€ at the spa on teh very same day !
