L'Hotel de la Prairie
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Hotel rooms need a major facelift....we melted in the heat, no AC or fans. Capet, beds and bathroom have seen better days.
Dinner was incredible and I highly recommend dinner at the restaurant. Food was absolutely delicious!!!!!

Reviewed 7 June 2013

Stayed here for 5 days whilst on a work trip, arrived in the early hours and check in was quick and easy, hotel foyer and corridors were clean and welcoming.
Got to room and thought I had gone back in time but it was clean so not too concerned.

It was only the next day when I met colleagues it was clear that there was no real consistancy with the facilities. Eg: some had robes/slippers, curtains, proper duvet, safe, balcony etc.
Things like balcony, robes etc may be trivial but in 2013 I would expect a safe and definately proper bedding and curtains!!!!
No tea/coffee making facility either.

The breakfast was pleasant enough and the staff were friendly, prices very extreme in the bar/restaurant.

For us the best thing was the on site mini golf which is free for hotel guests and there is a tennis court but don't expect to play unless you take your own racket/ball!!!

It was an ok stay but the hotel needs to catch up with the times in terms of in room facilities and maybe decor.

Room Tip: Not 102 if you wan't to secure your valuables!

Decadent and dusty atmosphere with plastic flowers in the french restaurant and high volume music from the radio ...
The rooms are really small with an old and dirty moquette and the tiny bathroom totally from the '80 taste. When I saw the rooms I couldn't believe this was a four stars hotel! The garden is nice and the food is ok. The wellness was pathetic.

The pluses - Very good Bistro and separate French restaurant, the food is excellent in the bistro.

The Downs
First night and the first room.
TV not working - ok a small point.
When I went to get into the bed there was blood on the sheets, the hotel did then swap me to another room.

Second Room
Was ok but they really need to refurbish the rooms, very old radiators, old build in cupboards and the decor was hmmm maybe 1950's but not in a quaint way.

Hallway and stairway carpet has seen better days.

Room Tip: I am told by other colleagues who have stayed here that some of the rooms have been refurbished, so...

Reviewed 26 November 2012

Hotel is only 5 minute walk from the thermal baths. Very convenient. Our room on the 3rd floor was quite spacious and obviously recently renovated. Shower exceptionally spacious. Fancy light controls, but not necessarily practical. They have also a Jaccuzzi, Hammam and Sauna (all fairly new). "French" restaurant and Brasserie with same menu (for the time being). We had a 3 course menu of exceptional quality in a very nice, quiet atmosphere. Good wine list. Pleasant staff allround.
