My husband and I have just returned returned from spending 7 nights at this wonderful hotel. Superb location, the most friendly and helpful staff I have ever come across and our room was really big and comfortable with wonderful views of the lake, mountains, and the swimming pool. I just cannot praise this hotel enough for the care and service given to everyone. I don't think the young manager Aurelie ever stopped smiling and she was busy all day giving advice, helping to serve meals, clear tables or serving in the bar - she was just everywhere that help was needed. Every evening meal was a delight and beautifully presented and although it was a set menu it was displayed in advance and one could always ask for something different and it was never a problem. On one occasion on seeking advise about local wines for dinner, the waiter even said that if we did not like the wine that he had recommended then he would change it for another. Well, you can't beat that !! There was always a wonderful choice of fruit, cold meats, cheeses, croissants, pain au chocolat, eggs, bread and jams etc for breakfast. There is plenty of seating in the lovely grounds to the front of the hotel and around the pool area and a delightful courtyard where one can have lunch or pre-dinner drinks and - if it is a particularly warm evening one can enjoy finishing off their meal by taking their desserts out there as we did on a few occasions - just glorious !! My only slight criticism is that there is not the availability of making hot drinks in the rooms as it would have been nice to have been able to make an early morning cup of tea or a late night hot chocolate. Lots of beautiful places to visit in the surrounding area and the drive through the mountains to Chamonix is an absolute must. We were sad to leave this fabulous area and the pure mountain air. If only we could have bottled it and brought it home with us. This hotel deserves more than 3 stars for the quality of food and service alone. C'est Magnifique !!!
