Very disappointing, although the view of the lake was great.
Accommodation comprised bedroom and kitchen only, no living room, even though described as an apartment. Standard well below the advertised 3*, and poor cost to quality ratio. No-star chain hotels in France have a better standard than this!
Apartment block is very run down and unattractive from the outside, and seriously in need of refurbishment. Interior resembled a low grade student hostel. Muddy car park.
The kitchen had no soap or cleaning materials. 2 of the 3 saucepans were dirty. An unlocked supplies room contained no materials other than about 15 rolls of toilet paper. No phone, so the only way we could contact reception was to walk 3 – 4 mins from our building to the reception.
Our room was too cold, in spite of having the radiator set at max. The flow water through the radiators was barely lukewarm. We compensated by turning on the electric hob in the kitchen, and used the hair dryer for heating the bedroom. Most unsatisfactory.
Noise throughout the night from adjacent lift.
Two disposable glasses in bathroom were provided, but one was dirty presumably from use be a previous occupant.
Horrible place, to which we would never want to return!
