Stayed here with my brother on a French Alps cycling vacation. Was a little surprised when we biked through a fairly industrial part of town to get there. The location is very poor if you don't have transportation to downtown, although it's not all that far if you have a bike. It's a little convoluted to get to also. The restaurant was not open mid-afternoon and the there was a Buffalo grill chain restaurant across the highway that was way over priced and not very good really at all. The room we had, albeit with doors leading to a large open grassy area which would have been nice if not raining and dreary, was not like in the pics. Very shoddy bed linens and the bathroom was small with a bath and a shower head but with the typical small screen vs a shower curtain and no fixture to hold the shower head while taking one. The only plus side of the room was that it was quite large. The rest of the hotel was run down, with a very antiquated fitness room. The staff was decent, and spoke English. They had a small very unsecured area for our bikes. Made sure we locked them well!
The pool was very nice, but it was too cold to use.
The redeeming part of the hotel was the excellent French Restaurant on site. Very good dinner with excellent wait staff. Unlike some hotels with half board and only one dinner choice, they had several as part of the meal 'package.' Bread was constantly replenished and was excellent. The breakfast was also top flight!
So if you get a great deal, and don't care about shopping downtown and have little kids who just want to swim in the pool, it might be good. As it was chosen for us by our tour operator, we didn't compare it against other Albertville places. Probably wouldn't stay there again however. It lacks charm.
