We spent a long weekend at the hotel at the beginning of July. There was an initial confusion over which suite we had booked, but it was sorted out very quickly. The rooms were much cleaner than previous years and arriving at the hotel still provokes the same reaction of a large smile appearing on our faces. The hotel managers... More

A gorgeous location at the end of a lovely country road -- easy walk to some lovely cascades, and one right outside the hotel. It seemed as if the cleaning crew had taken a good deal of time off -- both inside and out. The rooms were quite dated and could use new mattresses and pillows. Bath had no shower... More

A beautiful period hotel in a stunning location which was situated a mere 10 min walk from tranquil cascades, a true gem. But, the service was......... abysmal. Delivered by arrogant rude staff which at best were ambivalent in their service. They lacked pride in providing anything resembling service. Eating at the Hotel's Micheline restaurant was completely spoilt by laissez, faire... More

We splurged out on the waterfall suite with jacuzzi after being stuck on an 8m boat for the week with a large labrador, no flushing toilets and a hose for a shower. Our room was heaven and no problem at all to have the dog in the room with us. Husband caught 3 trout in an hour in the mill... More

We had one of the upgraded room with balcony and nice view. Nothing special but a very peaceful location. Dinner in the dining room but again nothing special and the service was not very professional. Our Visa card would not work as their machine did not have a swiping feature and they did not know how to manually enter. Good... More

We found this place in the late afternoon after driving from Grenoble to Strasbourg. The location is fabulous, the check in easy although he lady spoke no English. We had no reservations and she showed us 2 rooms. We decided to take the room that looks at a small but loud waterfall. The room had no AC and we left... More

Lovely setting, very friendly staff but my goodness it needs a clean. Balconies filthy, drinks glasses left on the terrace for 2 whole days along with overflowing ashtrays and the cobwebs in the public areas.... But the food in the restaurant was worth the surface grime in the rest of the hotel.

The place is gorgeous and very calme. The rooms are comfortable, spacious in charming buildings. The service was OK, it seems that they were very short of staff. we didnot have reservation and had to wait at the reservation for a while before we could get a room. The waterfall behind the property was a delight.
