Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The hotel is a beautiful building just five minutes walk from the village centre and despite being on the roadside the bedrooms are very well soundproofed
The room was very clean, nicely decorated and the bed very comfortable.
We didn’t dine in the hotel for the one evening we were there but the breakfast the next day was delicious. Much appreciated the fresh fruit salad and the cheese to slice ourselves instead of the usual industrial buffet cheese!
Staff/owners very welcoming
Highly recommend

I stayed at the hotel for 10 nights to participate in paragliding training at a training center nearby (about 300. meters away - very convenient, with a view of the landing field of the school). The hotel has an attached restaurant that can provide all meals of the day - I opted for breakfast and ate dinner several times. The hotel provides a friendly, yet refined atmosphere. In that sense, it is the best I've stayed at. I could sit down at one of the tables in the lobby, have lunch while working on my laptop (there is wifi) and, if the receptionist is not busy with other guests, chat with him/her about the region or anything else that comes up. There are also attached living and game rooms, with a billiard table. The bedrooms are simple but convenient and comfortable. The stay at the hotel was a major part of enjoying my vacation at St. Andre Les Alpes. It was my base to 'explore' the region and test other restaurants in nearby villages. The restaurant is very well run. The chef prepares inspired and high-quality dishes of a modern French cuisine. The receptionists speak at least English fluently. Some speak several more languages. I'll stay at the hotel when I visit again.

We extended our stay at Lac et Foret Hotel with an extra three days because we loved it so much. The ambiance, the food, the friendly staff, the surroundings, (we were lucky with very good weather), and we also had a very nice room with a view to the valley and the paragliders landing field. We enjoyed some long walks in nature and in the neighbourhood, a great market at the nearby village, played a lot of pool and enjoyed both the beer and the rosé wine, plus some locally produced bottles of stronger spirits (which I cant remember the name of).

Lac et Fôret is a wonderful hotel in a pretty little town. My room was small - the only reason to not give 5 stars really - but clean, modern, comfortable, including the bed itself. The stand out is the restaurant which is fantastic. My evening meals and breakfasts were all lovely. The evening meals of course being the star. The quality of ingredients, presentation, cooking and toast were all exceptional. The young waiting staff were polite and helpful. The proprietors were very friendly and welcoming. I’m happy to recommend this hotel if you are looking for somewhere to stay in this area.

Lovely welcome by an incredibly helpful and friendly lady. Basic room but had everything we needed including a kettle. Great dinner and drinks. Excellent parking which is essential for us. Fabulous recommendation for a chateau near Beaune. Couldn’t ask for more and we only found it because the road we were on was closed. Highly recommend.

Have stayed here three times always with a group of riding (bikes) friends... This hotel has incredible charm if you want to know what it was like to travel paris/nice etc way before there were autoroutes. I agree with reviewer that there are dozens of things you COULD upgrade, but that would ruin it for me. Dinner is great, breakfast standard fare. The owners have been extremely accomodating for us for extra storage, showers after checkout etc. This is a great place for reasonable family with kids, as the natural attractions nearby are stunning and the hotel provides all the basics with charm at a reasonable price. Go in with the right expectations and you will have a great stay. Make sure to spend time in the sitting room!

I've stayed at this hotel numerous times, the latest stay was in early July 2012.
I can think of a hundred possible improvements this hotel could do but I would never suggest any of them because I don't want them to change. The hotel is dated but has a lovely charm. The ambience of the restaurant is lovely and very French in the best possible way. The best way to describe the room is "Imagine staying a few nights at a very old aunt's house". The rooms have no air conditioning and are in need of renovation but again, are charming. I prefer staying in the annex in one of the rooms facing the backside, towards a meadow. These rooms are 100% quiet and does not suffer from the rather heavy traffic on the road outside the front of the hotel. The lack of air conditioning is not a big trouble if you're staying in a room facing the backside, away from the road. It's safe to sleep with an open window and the nights are really cool this high up in the mountains even in the summer so you wake up in a perfectly chilled room.

This hotel has a perfect location if you are a Paragliding pilot. Just next to the landing. But it is expensive and not worth the price. The rooms are small and not very well furnitured. Furthermore the cleaning where not good during our stay. The bathroom newly renovated spela that was good. The staff very friendly and Serviceminded (apart from cleaning ).
