“Decent Hotel, cool pool, but avoid the Restaurant.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2012

The Hotel is pretty ok, assuming you don't pay more than around EUR 100. The pool is really nice.
The restaurant was a disappointment. The food was mediocre and the service unprofessional. They were nice, but just not up to the task. If it would be half the price, one could be ok with it.

We had booked a double room and was offered Room 100. This room is located on the ground floor, inbetween the public Gents and Ladies toilets, It is next to the main bar and on the other side of the hotel from all the other hotels. We refused the room and were given another one immediately. I was annoyed that given the hotel was not full, we were offered Room 100 in the first place. Our next room was okish. not very well thought out, tiny bathroom and dingy. Just as we unpacked the electric went off in this room and the one next door.

There was just one girl who seemed to responsible for everything- Reception, Bar and Electrical problems.

We had booked half board and was informed there was no choice of menu even if we had been vegetarians. Our meal consisted of 2 spring rolls, a beef kebab that was tough with 1 slice of courgette and a slice of carrot and potatoes, and a piece of undercooked plum pie!

Fortunatley we were only here 1 night & I have to say at times the Hotel reminded me of that popular UK series with John Cleese & Connie Booth

Room Tip: Don't accept Room 100 - it's next to the public toilets and the Bar area

We booked this hotel because of child facilities. By check-in the manager informs us of a private party around the pool, which should finish at 16:00. What a joke, pool occupied all evening as well.
Our so-called superior room, was as far from a superior room as it can be.
Would I stay here again? No chance...

Many fine reviews so we expected something a little different. Nice enough accommodation, excellent staff, lovely little town, but the hotel itself a rather odd and not quite successful mix of 50s and modern with some nicer older touches in the public areas. Perhaps best in summer when the pool would be nice. Excellent meal, reviewed separately.

Hotel Les Hortensias is a beautiful hotel in the middlelof the Elzass. Its location just outside the centre of Barr, on a hilly patch is great. It has a lovely pool, lovely (and enough) deckchairs. Good service at the pool (although it would be easier if the poolbar would have been opened). THe atmosphere in the hotel was professional and welcoming. I would recommend it to anyone, especcially to weary cyclists.... Breakfast was OK, but not exceptional. Like most breakfasts in France.

A beautiful location, a stunning pool, right on the wine route in Alsace. Very clean rooms and an excellent breakfast. We had a fine dinner in the restaurant, but they were unsure how to handle food allergies, which created some confusion. Lack of air-conditioning was offset by the possibility of sleeping with open windows, but a room fan would have helped in the heat. Despite our open windows everything was silent, so we slept well. Our teenagers thought it looked like a good setting for a Bond film.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2011

We were in the Barr area for about 45 minutes before we managed to find the place. Our SatNav was not much help and some other guests we got chatting to took even longer. A bit more research/detailed info/directions would have been helpful. From the fotos I expected the hotel to be out of town and for the rooms to be much larger and plusher - so I was slightly disappointed. The fotos do not in fact show a room interior, or at least not any room I saw - I was shown 4, 3 superior and 1 standard. All were nice enough. The staff were all helpful, efficient and friendly. The restaurant served delicious food and excellent wines, though the mains were huge and we could not finish them. Sadly it was not really warm enough for us to use the gorgeous pool - maybe next time.
