We stayed at Les Trois Sources last year and I finally decided to speak up about our experience when I read the latest review from Germany. I really do agree with them about having the sensation we were intruding on the privacy of the owners family. It really put a damper on what could have been an otherwise memorable experience. We thought the place was lovely and we had a great room on the top floor of the old building (we had a light and bright room, the one next door was very dark with small windows so we asked to see another one.)
Every time we ran into a member of the family it felt awkward, even though I'm sure they probably didn't want it to be that way. I somehow felt that they were renting out rooms in the place out of necessity rather than out of a love for the hospitality industry. Who can blame them for not being crazy about having guests all the time. But it did make us feel weird. Then at breakfast one day, I accidentally tracked in a tiny bit of dog doo on my shoe (from their dog obviously) and i was told later by the owner to keep an eye out for dog doo on the property. I felt shamed. Naturally I didn't mean for it to happen but how did mentioning it help the situation?
Anyway, I had so wanted this hotel to be a great experience. It really could be if the owners just lighten up a touch. I know they do try in other ways for it to be nice.
