We were travelling from Italy across France and the location of this hotel was ideal. The staff were young and very helpful and the restaurant was excellent. Rooms were simple and basic but large and comfortable.
On arriving at the hotel we were disappointed by the location. On entering we found the reception area drab and totallt uninspiring. We were show to our room which was small and bare. we left immediately and found another hotel.
I needed a cheap place to sleep while travelling back from Italy, this was cheap and straight off the motorway, Ideal. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room small and basic, but did the job. nice view of the breakers yard! walked to a nearby resturant and had a good meal. Didn't take the offer of breakfast.
Overlooking a beautiful lake and mountains, the hotel has lovely views, great grounds and an impressive pool. However, the two-star Michelin restaurant is what really makes this hotel so special. The food was superb and not nearly as expensive as it would have been if located in a major city. The personable chef came around to talk with the evening diners. He shared with us his philosophy of the meal: ingredients have to be healthy and fresh and local; menu has to have limited salt, sugar and butter; the dish should have a mix of textures, colors and - of course - tastes. Every course was a success.
The standard hotel room has more limited views - but you get what you pay for.

We arrived on a Monday and the restaurant was closed. The hotel had let us know this in advance so we ate out. Beware the taxis are very expensive. On arrival the receptionist was incredibly helpful and showed us round the hotel personally, the best welcome we have ever experienced.
The food is superb. The pool area blissful and the gardens and grounds are great too.
Our room was in the old part and very comfortable.
It is nearly as quiet and peaceful as it looks but be aware there is a motorway that runs through these valleys and they create a constant thrum of traffic noise like background white noise and constant. Not a big problem though.
Nice place, with a beautiful park around. Nice and large (octaginal pool), and good spa facilities. You can also sunbath outside during the warm season. 15 min walk from the city centre, so location is not central, but this is the price for being surrounded by green. There is also a bus but rather infrequent. Bring slippers or flip flops for the pool since they are compulsory, and otherwise you have to buy them (I found 9 eur pretty expensive, but I never bought slippers in my life so this could be reasonable).
