We stayed in this "hotel" one night. It has the main building and an old ugly building next to it. We received the room in this ugly old building with no view. It was ice cold in the room. We had to let water run for 30min before it got warm. The wifi signal is VERY bad. The room is... More

Have stayed here three times always with a group of riding (bikes) friends... This hotel has incredible charm if you want to know what it was like to travel paris/nice etc way before there were autoroutes. I agree with reviewer that there are dozens of things you COULD upgrade, but that would ruin it for me. Dinner is great, breakfast... More

Will disagree with several reviews …stopped here while hiking 8 days from Annot to Riez and was the best stop on my route – provincial, 1930s, tidy, clean, great energy and laid back feel. Settled down after a day of hiking to French music and draft Leffe beer. The dinner felt and tasted like a home cooked meal with a... More

Unfortunately, the Hotel Lac et Foret was a disappointment. The décor was dated and dreary. The sink in the bathroom pulled away from the wall a bit just by leaning on it a bit. Tiles on the bathroom wall cracked as the sink pulled away, the toilet ran, and there were no wash cloths in the room. When we called... More

Stayed at this hotel one night. It was a very bad experience for us. To start with the receptionist was rude, angry and did not speak any english even though the sign outside the hotel said they spoke german and english. We booked a room with "lake view" but could almost not see the beautiful lake. The halls were dirty... More

Main building of hotel is quite nice, located next to picturesque lake. That is the only positive thing for the hotel. We were placed to the rooms in another building which looks like a depot for housekeeping; without any notice in booking messaging. Furthermore we were charged the same price for rooms with rubbish container view, as the rooms in... More

We booked on-line for a twin room with "view on the lake" - making us think of a quiet place with beautiful views in the country - in the French pre-Alps (1,200 feet) - a lovely retreat in the hot August heat. The price - 65 Euros without breakfast - seemed a bit high but for charm and beauty, a... More

I've stayed at this hotel numerous times, the latest stay was in early July 2012. I can think of a hundred possible improvements this hotel could do but I would never suggest any of them because I don't want them to change. The hotel is dated but has a lovely charm. The ambience of the restaurant is lovely and very... More

On a motorcycling tour of Europe with my son, I wimped out as it got dark and cold when we were passing through St Andre Des Alpes. The Hotel Lac et Foret welcomed us, speaking passable English and opening their restaurant just for us! The room was great, the food was excellent and in the morning we stodd on the... More

The interior is old and there is carpet in the bathrooms. The staircase of wood makes a lot of noise and in general the wooden floors makes a lot of noise. Service is good allthough they seem to be a bit understaffed (1person being server and handeling the lobby). The restaurant is ok value even though the food is average.... More
