I've stayed at this hotel numerous times, the latest stay was in early July 2012.
I can think of a hundred possible improvements this hotel could do but I would never suggest any of them because I don't want them to change. The hotel is dated but has a lovely charm. The ambience of the restaurant is lovely and very French in the best possible way. The best way to describe the room is "Imagine staying a few nights at a very old aunt's house". The rooms have no air conditioning and are in need of renovation but again, are charming. I prefer staying in the annex in one of the rooms facing the backside, towards a meadow. These rooms are 100% quiet and does not suffer from the rather heavy traffic on the road outside the front of the hotel. The lack of air conditioning is not a big trouble if you're staying in a room facing the backside, away from the road. It's safe to sleep with an open window and the nights are really cool this high up in the mountains even in the summer so you wake up in a perfectly chilled room.
