We have stayed in many of the Mercure hotels throughout France - this one was the not the best.
We arrived, in was liking entering a huge station area. The staff were very helpful, when you could find them. Our room was okay, but have had better. There was a lot of noise from the hall as it is very long, also road noise.
We ate out in the town - overpriced and not very good.
Breakfast, hmm, okay, waitress wondering around with a jay cloth in her hand wiping down tables (crumbs to the floor, not into a small pan, not very hygenic!) the jay cloth appeared not to be rinsed between tables. It was left on one table when she went to do something else... not a good policy. I made the mistake of having the scrambled eggs - it should have been a warning when I saw that the egg dish had obviously been on the heater for a long time as the eggs at the bottom were baked brown - bad tummy all day, needed to stop in Italy and get some tablets. And, I have had food all over the world, this is the first time this has happened. There was a total indifference to the diners, I did want to say 'how far can you throw the plates before they break', why do they insist of banging clean plates down onto the buffet table. If they don't like the job, leave.
We had retired from running our own Chambres d'Hotes and to a high standard, from a hotel, I expect the same or even higher (if that were possible....)
This is an ideal place if you ski, and don't mind basic. There are signs all over telling you not to , skis, boots..... BUT, we will NOT stop there again.
