Great hotel goog location nice room very good shuttle service

Verified guest review

6/10 Good

Not even a 3 star hotel level
The reception and check in process was not what you would expect from a five start property. It took a while to have someone from the valet parking to service us. The employee checking us in did not even ask us if we would like a suite instead of the room we booked and we did not know of the change until we went to the room. He did not tell us about the WiFI log in method or what time or where the breakfast will be. Let alone any of the hotel amenities. It took them 30 min to bring our luggage up to our room and that was after I called the front desk. The room did not have iron, ironing board nor hair dryer. I had of course to call for these items and no surprise that it took them for ever to bring them to the room. Breakfast was far from a proper breakfast you usually find in five star hotels. Unclean tables, messy buffet and an obviously overworked staff. Overall not a good stay.

4/10 Fair

Consider going elsewhere
Problem after problem when staying in this hotel. The hotel is severely understaffed, the only saving grace was Sandrine who works in the Millesime Lounge/Management. On arrival it was like they had just opened the hotel after covid/an apocalypse and none of the phones were working, menus out of date, rotting wood in the bathrooms and just lots of working pieces that didn’t make it anywhere close to a 4/5* stay that it claims it is. Location is great, but left a lot to be desired.

8/10 Very good

Overall, it is excellent from pool, gym, breakfast, friendly and cleanliness. The only thing we don't like is the housekeeping is a bit lacking, next replenish tissue box, missing shower towel right after room make up and never provide it even after a call to remind them. Need to buck up on their service standard.
