La Tour Blanche
Reviewed March 4, 2012

This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. What a shame - the location is so beautiful, overlooking the lake, but when I arrived, in the middle of the afternoon, the doors were locked! I had booked in advance, and was tired after a long drive, but there was no note on the door, or any indication when someone would be there. When I was finally allowed in, there was not a drink to be had, even though there was a coffee machine behind the receiption/bar. Don't ever stay here, it is RUBBISH!!!! - GO TO THE HOTEL PLATANES, IN THE TOWN.

Room Tip: If you can get in, rooms on the right-hand side (west) down the corridor have a view of the lake.

We really felt let down. According to the price and the advertisement, we expected something better. We choose this one because they say it is a restaurant hotel. Friday night, no restaurant !!!!! You can not take your room when you want (for exemple only between 12pm and 2pm), they don't make any effort to arrange you. For one "Inter Hotel" it is a shame ! Secondly for 90 euros, the room was really small but clean. For the Breakfast it is only between 8.30am and 9.30pm... like a military camp, no flexibility ! When you are in holiday... it is not what you are looking for. The conclusion of this stay, it is the service is poor, no service, no smile at all, depressed employees !

I stayed two days in St Yrieix so I spent two nights here.
The reception was very good. The lady who greeted me was nice despite the fact that she didn't speak english very well.
The room was very nice too. The bathroom was clean. The decor in the room is minimalist but nice and modern and the view from the room is just awesome ! The landscape, with the lake ... So lovely and romantic.
The evening I choosed to eat at the restaurant of this hotel. It was delightful ! A true and great French cuisine !
I recommend this hotel for a getaway with your boyfriend/girlfriend (so romantic), but also for family holidays because the region is really pretty.
I think I will come back soon.

However we allowed for the fact that this hotel is a bit like a Premier Inn in the UK.
This hotel does not offer any service but the rooms are acceptable and the view from the rooms overlooking the lake just breath taking(try it at sunrise)
For those that need a bar there is a great restaurant 10 minutes walk away on the opposite side of the lake and you can pop in to the porcelain museum on the way back.
We tried dinner here and it was adequate but on our second night we strolled in to St-Yrieix and enjoyed a nice Pizza before walking back in the moonlight on the beach by the beautiful lake and had a final beer in the restaurant before retiring back to the hotel.
The price was expensive at 90 euro per night but I would go back again.

Room Tip: Ask for Lake view

This hotel is best described in one word 'Minimalist' the service was minimal, the comfort was minimal, the bill bucked the trend and was excessive.Our first night we were left completely alone, the staff, ALL of them went home at six o'clock, we couldn't get a cup of coffee never mind a drink from the bar. If we were thirsty there was the bathroom tap.
Breakfast was a joke, we were clearly a nuisance and the sooner we left the better.
To top it all off we were charged TOP rates, even though it was out of season.
We stayed the rest of our trip (4 nights) in somewhere half the price and three times better.
