we booked online. unfortunately something came up and we didn't arrive until one day later. everything uncomplicated. friendly reception and they even spoke english. the room was clean and the service was good.
we may come by in winter when we go to the region
It has been our first stay in the Vosges for skiing. The hotel is located close to Gerardmer and the Bresse.
It is a nice hotel with a limited parking (we had to park outside but that was not an issue) that is located in a very small skiing station that now it seems permanently closed. There is nothing else in the surroundings, apart the hotel, but this is also part of the "charme" of this hotel and we knew in advance.
The family that is in charge of the hotel is absolutely nice, as well as all the staff, being the main reason for our 5*.
The quality of the restaurant is excellent but you have to adapt for the daily menu for the dinner (with no option for the starter, the main dish and the dessert, and just a basic children menu). It would be nice to have the possibility to dinner just an omelette, an hamburger or a salad, anything complicated for the kitchen, and more "light" for who do not want a heavy dinner. The breakfast was ok, not a lot of choice but correct, and once again, the family & the staff make the difference.
We rented the skiing equipment in the hotel and they advised us to go to Gerardmer station instead of the Bresse and we appreciated it and we enjoyed a lot.
The family room we occupied was ok but a little outdated. Noises as usual in this type of hotels. Not an issue for us.
Hope we will have the opportunity to return again to this nice family hotel for another w.e. in the Vosges.
Maybe not our typical hotel (a bit less modern than we're used to), BUT we really loved it! Our room was cosy and very clean, with a large closet for storage. The bathroom was recently renovated and had everything we needed. The large window with little balcony was just lovely, we loved the view of the forest. The hotel has no direct neighbors, given the fact it is located just outside Le Valtin, the peace and quiet is just amazing. @ night there was total silence except for the sounds of an owl.
The bed was rather small and not super comfortable, for three nights it was perfectly okay, but maybe not for much longer...
We really liked breakfast and absolutely loved dinner. The food is a big big plus, the young chef does an amazing job, we loved each and every dish. Breakfast is very good: boiled eggs, various types of bread, pastries, fruit salad, cereals, a very nice choice of cheese, meat, jam, ...
We were there for hiking. Only one short walk starts @ the hotel, but many many others are just a short drive away. "Les Vosges" really surprised us, it was our first time there and the amount and quality of the hiking trails really pleased us! We're definitely going back.
