"Worth the Drive"
We flew into Geneva and then made the relatively long drive to St. Veran with a number of switchbacks along with great scenery. This town, reported to be the highest in the French Alps lives up to its reputation as one of the most scenic as well. Since we were there in September, we were pleased to find numerous well-signed hikes available The hotel is built in such a way that it fit’s into the town in spite of its relatively large size. Given the layout amongst several buildings at first it is a bit confusing to navigate but we figured it out quickly. The hotel is modern and up to date with incredible views. The short form pros and cons are: • Pros: o Up to date comfortable rooms with great views o Excellent food o Fabulous bar patio area o Great bar o Friendly caring staff o Beautiful pool, hot tub sauna and steam room • Con’s o Navigating the hotel o Rooms are a bit tight o Erratic Internet connection • Don’t miss: Fondue dinner
"Class hotel in a beautiful location "
Well worth the price. A top class stylish hotel surrounded by great mountain scenery. Very courteous and attentive staff. Excellent facilities which are well maintained and clean. Fantastic breakfast full of local produce. Very good evening meal too in the standard restaurant...there is a more luxurious restaurant too. Suitable for young family providing the children are well behaved.
"An amazing building in a wonderful setting - worth the effort to find it!"
We stayed for 7 nights at the beginning of August. What a location! The hotel itself is an amazing design, with impressive public areas, very contemporary with many luxury facilities as described on the website. Our room was not large although it was a superior one - but the fixtures and fittings were all of extremely good quality from the fluffy towels, bathrobes and honey-scented Nuxe toiletries to the bedding, lighting and fabrics. The wardrobes provided lots of storage space and the bathroom was very well equipped although it was so small only one of us could be in there at a time. The view from the balcony was stunning, over the village to the mountains beyond. We enjoyed the challenge of finding our way around via the lifts and passageways lined with regional artworks, and made good use of the pool/sauna/Jacuzzi area after our long treks in the vicinity. Breakfast was excellent (at the price it needed to be), and set us up for the whole day. We ate in the restaurant twice, one dinner was a buffet; the meals were good, but not really special. Then we found a superb restaurant just metres from the hotel which offered a more interesting, traditional menu at much better value where we ate for the rest of the week. The staff were on the whole thoroughly professional, helpful and efficient, and the facilities we used were of a very high quality, but we did encounter a few disappointing incidents which we did not expect from such an establishment. One afternoon we waited over 25 minutes to be served with a drink at the roof-top bar, although there were only a few other customers and the barman was not rushed off his feet. In the end we decided not to bother and had a beer on our balcony. Another morning we were accidentally locked out on our balcony by the cleaner who had closed the door whilst vacuuming the room - it took 30 minutes to alert someone to come and release us, and whilst the reception staff apologised profusely, a complimentary drink would have been a good touch in the circumstances. In the pool area it clearly states that the Jacuzzi was not to be used by children under 13 years of age, and yet adults were often unable to use it during our visit due to families and groups of children playing in the Jacuzzi whilst couples and individuals were obviously waiting. This was during the school summer holidays, and so there were bound to be families staying in the hotel, but there is little point in a rule if no-one abides by it. The stripy pool towels were the best I have ever seen in a hotel, and available in abundance from shelves around the pool area. Overall we loved this hotel, and really appreciated its wonderful location. It was great that one could walk for miles straight from the door, or just sit and admire the views, then wander into the village for a drink or meal, or take advantage of the excellent hotel facilities. It was expensive, but then it is a luxury hotel, and we thought it was worth the expense. The parking charge was somewhat extreme however, since there was nowhere else to park in this part of the village other than the hotel car park, and I can't imagine anyone would arrive without a car at this time of year. We would certainly consider staying here again if we were in the area and would recommend it to our friends without hesitation.
"Great luxury location at 2042 m. Just be careful about the type of room you are offered."
Everything was perfect...except for the room. We stayed in the junior suite room 322 between the 06th and 09th of August 2016. The suite consists of a very narrow room downstairs connected through a very sharp staircase to the bedroom under the roof in a mezzanine. There is no window upstairs and the room is facing south. In summer the temperature in the bedroom is unbearable. It was more than 33 degree C when we checked in and took us the whole night with the window opened downstairs to cool it down.... Our suggestion: the room might be ok in winter. In summer it needs air-conditioning. As it has become the norm all over the world ( cheaper for the hotel) the bed was covered with a duvet which we had to remove quickly......We hardly slept during the first night and had to learn how to manage the room temperature the following nights.( Curtain closed, window fully opened from 19.00 until 09.00 am and closed during the day)
We had a drink at this hotel after a long hike. Staff was very arrogant, not warm or welcoming at all. At the same time the drinks were served we got the bill. They never came to ask if everything was ok or if we'd like another drink, we were just being ignored. Bill charged more than the prices on the menu. We will never go here again.
