Characterful but isolated on foot
Posted Oct 23, 2016
We stayed here for three nights, having chosen it on the basis of having a pool, wifi and being close to Mulhouse.
Our room was OK, but in the roof space on the third floor, we didn't have a stand up shower as the roof was too low. I made use of the showers in the leisure centre so wasn't the end of the world! I couldn't stand up at one side of the bed either, and we had a tiny window really high up. The bed was comfy, minibar stocked and all very clean. We could hear all the planes approaching Basel airport, but not loud enough to disturb us. WIFI was ok once connected, but you had to keep re-entering the password...
The leisure centre was clean, but the pool was rather small, and on the cool side - OK for a fast swim but not for chilling out. It was 6 - 7 strokes from one end to the other, but I kept turning around to get a decent swim!
The hotel had a large and popular restaurant, but we thought the menu was too limited. My partner doesn't eat red meat, which left nothing to choose! As there's nothing else in walking distance, we drove to a few places - there are plenty of restaurants 3 - 4 miles away. There's a lovely bakery just along the road, which we went to each day for fresh breakfast pastries...
Hotel has a good car park, is located in a pretty village, and has some character you don't get in modern hotels.
