We have stayed here several times on our trip from France home to Italy and it has always been a pleasure..a beautiful setting and the hotel accommodation very decent although nothing special. As others mentioned here, the dinner has been something to look forward to. In the past the standard was high, yes, the prices too but it was really good.
This time, I have to say will be the last time we stay at the Embarcadere, the price of the dinner is high but the standard has dropped - if not disappeared completely. We chose the €25 menu, which has always been good in the past. This time our amuse-bouches were straight out of the freezer, so cold it was not possible to taste them, the first course was with pre-prepared and pickled vegetables, supposedly with ricotta cheese but it did not taste like it. In fact it had no taste. The main course was tepid and the vegetables completely undercooked. To cap it all the half bottle of wine we ordered was one price on the menu and quite another on the bill. In fact it had suddenly risen 30%.
What has happened here? Was the chef on holiday and they had to buy it all in ready cooked? It tasted like that. Even the bread was stale and this was a Friday evening.
No, no...totally unacceptable.

Hotel L’Embarcadere, Nantua from the web seemed ideal location for us however when we drove in to the forecourt and although there was another car there we were told we could not park there we moved to rear car park however we noted later there were two cars parked there was it because we were English!! After booking in we had lunch very fussy menu after we booked evening meal then shown our ensuite room you could hardly seat on the WC although I had informed them I was disabled we decided to have a walk and drive around the Lake part pleasant part a little run down then we returned to hotel evening diner very disappointing with the cramped room we decided not for us when we reached our car we discovered our car covered in bits although no other car was effected and no trees around us we had spent considerable time the night before to clean the windows for onward trip we had to tidy the mess off then left not to return have i got it wrong was it our nationality although the rest of our trip 5 other hotels were not effective

We stayed here in route to Lake Garda, It has a great position and view over the lake. As to the rooms they were clean but are very tired and require updating. The restaurant is very expensive and not worth it, they are charging top LONDON prices without the quality and service. Breakfast was ok. It’s also strange that the rooms and restaurant don’t mix. Would we go back? No! This place could be a gold mine with investment and training.

Last eve of my business trip decided not to go for a classical business hotel but this logis the france high rated (3 houses, 3 pots). Location great. Decoration depends your taste but pretty uncommon. Room fine altough sanitary really outdated (with here and there corrosion) and airco not working. For 86€ you can find better in this relatively rural area. Big disappointment was the dinner. First the personnel is NOT made for the job, especially not when taking into account the very expensive menu card with Paris / Michelin prices (starter 20-30€ / main 20-40€ / menu 50€). The head of the personnel is a sympatic guy but shouting on / correcting his people at your table, the rest of the servers are simply not made for the job. I took the menu of 50€, pretty expensive for this area and in general in france. Altough the quality was fine, quantities are ridiculous (4 small pieces of salmon making the starter, a half very small dorade making the main plate, some cheese clearly not touched for some days (yellow on the sides) and finally a simple fruit salad). Beer, water, coffee very expensive. Happy it was not on my own cost. A great place with potential but wrongly managed.

This hotel is situated on the edge of a beautiful lake. the beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean and the view is stunning, but the hotel itself doesn't quite reach the standard of professionalism it needs. It misses out in a few areas; the restaurant staff try hard, but are badly managed; there is something missing , perhaps in the ambience of the building. or the not very good breakfast, but it just doesn't live up to expectations.
