I stayed at the Auberge L'Etoile for a week this March, and really found this to a basic, older hotel that is in need of serious updating. This hotel has three or four basic room categories, and my company booked us in the basic standard rooms, which are very reasonably priced. They are however the oldest rooms in the hotel and really kinda funky. First, the rooms have old fashioned key type entry instead of a more secure electronic key system. Second, the doors don't close very well, so be sure to close the door fully before leaving. (I came back after a day out to find the cleaning crew left my door partly open).
The rooms are very basic with 1 or 2 beds, a small work desk and table, TV with both English and French channels and a small bathroom.
The beds are very uncomfortable with old, kinda thin blankets, and very lumpy pillows. The bathroom is tiny with old, thin, tiny towels and the hot water goes in and out.
The only real plus side to this hotel is that it is right on Lake Magog and can be very pretty in both the summer and winter. Also, the free breakfast that is included is quite good.
All in all, I'd look at other places. This hotel just isn't quite worth the money.
