“Oh dear. Where do I start?”
Reviewed 2 March 2011

We chose this hotel because of its location between Combloux and Megeve. This is actually the best thing about it.
On arrival mid afternoon the hotel was locked. There was a message on the door telling arrivals to ring a particular mobile phone number if there was no-one at the hotel. On doing so we were given a code to access the hotel and told which rooms we had allocated and where to find the keys! Both rooms were small but adequate although one of the bathrooms required urgent renovation. There were no tea/coffee making facilities in either rooom so after a 9 hour drive through France we were unable to have a hot drink. The lounge was locked and we discovered that it remained so whenever the hotel was unstaffed. Which was frequently.
When the proprietor finally arrived we asked if we could book a table for dinner in the hotel restaurant, but we were told that this wasn't possible as we had not booked half board in advance.
Throughout our 4 night stay the towels were not changed once nor were the supplies in the bathrooms replenshed.
Breakfast was adequate but minimalist. The same fruit which had been laid out on the day of our arrival was still there, and deteriorating, on the day of our departure.
We only ever met what we took to be the proprietor and his disinterest in running a hotel was obvious for all to see.
In summary, very disappointing because this hotel has enormous potential.
