After recommendations we paid extra for a room with a view. This was great of the local mountains. The downside of being on that side of the building though, is noise from the school below and general roadworks. The staff seemed often absent so it's quite an anonymous hotel. In our room (we suspect they all may be different), we... More

11 of us stayed here for 3 nights. Decor may be a little tired and they were not used to such a demand for beer but the hotel makes a great base for touring. Good breakfast, garage parking. Nice town with a selection of restaurants, a supermarket and petrol. Fabulous roads, Pass de Peyrol is the best I found.

The reception was very friendly. Room was simple and clean, but Bed was a bit hard for us. Room temperature was too high so that we opened window during the night in March. Nice swimming pool, perfect for kids. Breakfast simple but nice. location was very good, quiet but center if the town.

We booked the same day as we arrived. The hotel is clean. The staff does what it has to do. Not more. The location is central in town. The pool is clean (a bit on the chilly side but after a while you get used to it). The parking is extra (unless you park next to the street). Breakfast is... More

Thank you very much for your opinion about our hotel and its services. I just want to get back to one of your remark: "-jet in the pool didn't work, playstations in the playroom didn't either" Jet in the pool and playstations do work both. We (the receptionists) are here to help our customers and if you'd have told us,... More

Great location with some parking outside (few spaces) or nearby. Lovely, friendly staff but they leave at 8pm so everything other than your room is inaccessible after 8pm. They ask you to leave your room key on a rack in full display if they are not at reception but this seemed a bit like an invitation for the room to... More

Good hotel in La Bourboule which is a lovely French Town about 15 mins away from Mont Dore. Service at the hotel was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Good breakfast... More
