I like visting France because deep inside I'm a bit of a Francophile and enjoy trying to practice my basic French, but no Francais ici. The UK staff were really bright, considerate and helpful. The guests appeared to be almost all from the UK too. So despite missing my fix of French it made for a very convivial atmosphere lubricated by 4:30pm coffeee and cakes, 7:00pm Champagne and canapés followed by a five course dinner. Most guests fell into easy conversation with each other.
The property itself is just off the Bellecote piste as others have reported. It really is very easy to get to. The public areas are quite chic. Our room was adequate, but just a little on the small size considering what we take with us, but not a deal killer.
There was plenty of food at breakfast and dinner. We never had all five courses at dinner, but it was nice to have a choice of courses. I would describe the food as good rather than excellent. The odd course was a little overcooked.
Overall, a very good hotel, but not a great hotel, however you could always pay more somewhere else! ;-)
