My friend and I had been snowshoeing nearby and stayed overnight here on a thursday. They had a very reasonable bed and breakfast rate and we stayed in a superior forest view room. This means you overlook the forested slopes in the distance. The room was large but dark with a big bathroom with shower above. We had the window open at night and the road is busy. The beds were fine. The highlight is the restaurant! We had drinks in the bar-a very nice glass of cremant each which we were served with delicious canapés-the lightest cheese straw. We chose the 40 euro menu although there was a more expensive truffle menu. The chef's strengths are his puddings-oh wow my friend had a tangerine soup with little chocolate balls and a homemade sorbet. We had a delicious starter of scrambled eggs with truffle. There were another 2 choices including snails. My friend had duck as a main. I had beautiful scallop but it was spoilt by being wrapped in heavy fatty local bacon rather than a pancetta. After pudding we were then served simply delicious petit fours. I don't think I am doing justice as I was a bit disappointed by the scallop but this is very superior food. The monthly supper club were eating the same evening. Sensibly they did not arrive until 9pm when we and the other tables were well underway.
I thought breakfast would be basic but how wrong I was-freshly squeezed orange juice, delicious coffee, and a buffet of yoghurts,fresh fruit salad, cold meats ,cheeses, croissants, pain au chocolate, bread and the most simply delicious brown bread stuffed with nuts, raisins and apricots- oh wow thank goodnesss we were walking on le Semnoz later. After breakfast we had an idyllic stroll by the beautiful lake in front of the hotel-there is a path that follows the water edge. The hotel has a very old beautiful boathouse. The staff were very friendly and efficient and I want to go back!
