The Haut-Jura is a wonderful place for cross-country skiing in winter and for rambling or cycling in the summer, but it's truly difficult to find somewhere decent to stay or somewhere decent to eat.
With this hotel, everything is about expectations. If you just need food in your belly and a clean quiet room in which to sleep, you will be happy. But if you have any expectations of style, quality, regional specialities or comfort, you will be sorely disappointed.
The small rooms are furnished to the bare minimum, although they are clean and quiet. In the bathroom, never any water hot enough for a good wash or bath.
The public rooms are dreary if functional. Dinner was a huge disappointment with a poor choice of food. The wine was unimpressive. Dining hours were short - you got the feeling they wanted you in and out as quickly as possible.
Breakfast was adequate, but - aaargh - not only at the same table as dinner, but with the same napkins and crumbs on the tablecloth that we had left the night before. Coffee was not hot enough, and don't even think about the tea!
So not my favourite hotel experience. I expected at least a bit of something special in terms of the region, but this was mediocrity from top to toe.
