“Good food and great location”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

We had booked one night demi pension on the first night walking the GR5. Comfortable, clean and freindly welcome. The restaurant is not open to non residents on Sundays but we and 4 other guests enjoyed a good fixed three course meal . Breakfast was by French standards very substantial. We asked for a picnic for the following days. It proved to be so substantial that it lasted for three lunches!

Lovely location and I would certainly return

Wow what a find,unfortunately I had eaten prior to leaving Switserland only to find there was a massive barbie being prepared when I arrived. It has an excellent outside pool overlooking the valley below. We had a real job being understood but google translate saved the day. The evening had live entertainment for the huge local turn out. When the singer was told the English were there he sang several betales songs in English which really made a lovely welcome. The range of wine was superb the setting beautiful the staff lovely

We - a couple and a single travelling companion - stayed in a pair of rooms. Although originally booked for two nights, we left after one, preferring to sleep in our car than spend another night in this establishment.
First a few minor complaints ...
1) Even though we arrived well before the last orders time for the restaurant, we were unable to get anything other than a cup of tea when we arrived mid-evening.
2) Despite a sign announcing 'we speak English', none of the staff did, not even after 8:00am the next morning, when reception was officially open.
3) We were a party, but still not offered adjoining rooms.
4) The inter-room phone didn't work, so we couldn't keep in touch with each other.
... and now some MAJOR COMPLAINTS ...
5) The double room was awful. The carpet was dirty, the bedding was stained, but worst of all by far, the toilet was completely unacceptable, being both dirty and smelling awfully.
6) The single room was cleaner (not being carpeted probably helped here), but only had one sheet, so had to choose between sleeping on the bare mattress and use it as a top-sheet, or use it as a bottom-sheet and have a fluffy, itchy blanket in skin-contact. The room was also very cold, as the single blanket was thin, and it was not at all clear that there were more available.
The hotel did not seem full by any means, so I can only assume that most or all of the rooms are this bad - why would they put guests in such poor rooms when the hotel is empty, if better rooms were available?
Breakfast was perfunctory and unappetising.
No redeeming features whatever. Avoid!
