Based on the excellent reviews, I booked this hotel for a 4-night stay during Easter vacation. I booked a "studio confort", that is a 20 square meter studio with small kitchen. I liked the stay, and I would go there again.
However, I can't really rate this place "excellent", as there were a number of things which were _not_ excellent. But let's go through it point by point.
Let's start with the positive things:
This hotel is family run, and the owners do their best to make you spend a good time. The owners were very friendly and provided us with little services that make the difference, e.g. salt&pepper for the kitchen (which was well-equipped), our keeping the foodstuff in an extra fridge for half a day after we checked out. The 180cm bed was of good quality. I'm mentioning this because in France you can have bad surprises or you can even end up in a (tiny) french double bed. The center of the village, providing small grocery stores, bakeries and restaurants, can be easily reached by foot from the hotel.
The not so positive things:
The heating/air conditioning machine is quite noisy. As the landlady explained us, in this particular setup the engine is located inside the rooms and not outside. This can be quite annoying, as we had to leave it running during the night for heating purposes. (During summer, you will also certainly want to have the A/C running during the night). The rooms were cleaned on a daily basis, but apparently they were not vacuumed.
Finally, the rooms classes itself with two stars, and you shouldn't expect everything to be new and shiny: the furniture is a bit aged and worn. (The TV set, though, was new and of good quality)
We didn't take breakfast at the hotel, so I can't comment on that. The off-season room prices are certainly a good value, I probably wouldn't pay the high season price (~130 EUR/night) for this place.
