Having spent two weeks touring northern Spain and France this hotel was our last stop on the way back to the UK. Of the 6 hotels we stayed in this was the best for service, decor, food and overall experience. We had a room on the top floor overtlooking the lake - it was very well furnished and well "set up" - bathrobes and towels were clean and fresh with slippers provided; decor was modern, bright and airy; unusually (in our recent experience in European hotels) there were tea and coffeee making facilities. The restaurant can only be described as "classy" - the food and the service were as good as anywhere you would experience in a 5* hotel - ignore the comment made by another visitor about the menu being a rip off. We asked the staff about this as we could not believe it. We were told that there was a misunderstanding upon the part of the client as he maybe did not understand the French menu - hardly surprising as he refers to "Nouveau" Cuisine rather than "Nouvelle" Cuisine. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and tastes vary (obviously) but one needs to be even handed in a review and endeavour not to comment on matters of private taste but see beyond the parameters of one's own prejudices.
This hotel is a credit to the owners but particularly to the staff who could not have been more helpful, courteous and engaging - congratulations! It is still being developed and will soon include a spa and a golf course which will undoubtedly move it into the 5* category. We look forward to returning in the future.
