Thank you very much for your opinion about our hotel and its services. I just want to get back to one of your remark: "-jet in the pool didn't work, playstations in the playroom didn't either" Jet in the pool and playstations do work both. We (the receptionists) are here to help our customers and if you'd have told us,... More

Great location with some parking outside (few spaces) or nearby. Lovely, friendly staff but they leave at 8pm so everything other than your room is inaccessible after 8pm. They ask you to leave your room key on a rack in full display if they are not at reception but this seemed a bit like an invitation for the room to... More

Very close to the centre of the charming La Bourboule ski village. Friendly and helpful staff. Great for families - heated pool, games room and bar for parents. Breakfast very nice, served 8 till 10:30 so no rush to get up. Bit cold at night but blankets available. Little dated but clean and sizeable rooms. Shower hot and powerful. Restaurant... More

Just come back from a fantastic visit to the Mont Dore area with friends. Stayed at the Aviation hotel and would certainly not hesitate to go back again. Good hotel in La Bourboule which is a lovely French Town about 15 mins away from Mont Dore. Service at the hotel was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Good breakfast... More

Having parked right outside we walked into the hotel and I tripped over a step in the poorly lit reception area and fell very heavily! We were offered a 'confort' room for an additional 10Euro which, in my state of shock, I took without even looking at the 'standard' room. Our room was small and clean but rather old fashioned...

We booked as an overnight halt in the picturesque hills on the way from Spain to UK. Reaching from Clermont Ferrand A71 was quite tricky with mist and rain but would have been wonderful if we were not tired. Approach from A89 was simple. The hotel was welcoming, the garage secure and only 50m walk, the breakfast sumptuous for 8.5E... More

We stayed here for 3 days to benefit from awesome snow conditions in nearby Mont-Dore ski area (15 min by car). Nice and clean hotel, kids loved the pool, breakfast was good value for money and abundant enough to get us through the first 3 hours of skiing. La Bourboule is a nice (perhaps a bit dull) place with some... More

We needed a place to sleep during a car trip through France and found in Aviation a last-minute chance to get what we've paid for. Very simple old-decorated but clean rooms, with shower and an average restaurant for dinner. The city was a very good surprise, charming and well located in a wonderful valley. The price was really fair and... More
