A once beautiful hotel.
Posted Jul 27, 2015 on Hotels
This hotel must have been grand in it's day but is now a little sad and tired.
The exterior and public areas are very worn down and need serious repair, the grounds are overgrown and untended but the rooms are large and have had a modern upgrade so are very comfortable and clean.
The setting of the hotel must have originally been perfect on the edge of the village and overlooking a beautiful lake but more recent development has infilled part of the outlook with a football pitch, emergency services buildings and a supermarket. Opposite the front of the hotel is the landing field for the paragliding school so this adds a very entertaining novelty to the hotel.
The hotel restaurant closed two years ago and the only food served now is breakfast. The breakfast was good on our first day but the quantities reduced each day. On the second day I had to ask for the fruit salad bowl to be replenished but on the third day I was told very briskly that there "was no more" and the choice of bread was just a French stick. This put a dampener on our stay especially as there was a supermarket two minutes away selling fabulous fresh fruit - there really was no excuse to run out of such a basic and cheap commodity.
The owner of the hotel speaks good English and was very helpful but we felt that he was no longer really interested in the hotel however the rooms were great, clean and comfortable which is probably the most important thing and we would be happy to return one day.
