“walking the puys”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

My wife & I chose Murol as the centre for a week of walking in the area of extinct volcanic peaks (puys) and stayed at the Hotel des Pins on half board. The hotel is situated in a quiet spot away from the main road through the village - a road which can be busy. From the outside it looks a little dilapidated but inside it has a striking and spacious dining room with a large wall painting depicting medieval scenes. The splendid Château de Murol is on the hill just behind the hotel and this is a 'must' even for the well-travelled visitor. Our room was a little faded but had an ensuite with a proper bath. Everything was clean and towels were changed daily. The evening three course meal on half board was fixed (no choice) however each evening each meal was totally different and of excellent quality. Breakfast was a little thin. Few people speak English in the area. I had to visit the local doctor who could not speak more than a few words in English. Imagine explaining that you have trapped wind to such a fellow!! You can walk from the hotel on a little country lane to the nearby lac Chambon. There are some good walks a few miles up the valley.
We went to the Camarge for a few weeks after Murol - and that was good as well. I guess we are just francophiles.

Room Tip: Choose was with bath not shower. These cost a few Euros more but re better rooms

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

We stayed here on the way back home at it was about half way from our Alpine location. The hotel as plenty of character and history but appears warn and faded. The rooms were clean but small. The food was dreadfull. The evening meal was bad but the breakfast was stale bread and average coffee. The village of Murol is picturesque and beautiful with small bars and resaurants.
Although ideally situated the hotel is far from ideal

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel
