“OK but not inspirational!”
Reviewed 4 August 2011

There was someting faintly clinical about this place. Lack of a lift and no offer to help has been noticed by others on this site. The room was a superior which was OK size wise but the interior decorator has a very unpleasant sense of humour- ime green and grey was hardly restful! Dining was pretty formal, very cramped and busy. As we had our bay with us dinner was a pretty trying experience. Much of the dining staff are very young although helpful. There is another dining room which remained unused so maybe they should offer meals there for those like us with youngsters and with a less formal atmosphere. The food was Ok but a tad expensive (and we live in France and are used to food prices.) For a couple it would be a good choice in the area. On site parking was fine.

Reviewed 19 September 2009

Arrived 7.30 pm, cold, wet and tired. (having telephoned during the afternoon to say we would be later than 6 pm, after which time, they emphasised three times when we made the booking, our booking would be invalid). 'Greeted' by a middle-aged man on reception who made it quite clear that we were not welcome. He fussed for minutes about where we could park, he literally refused to give us the room key until we told him whether or not we would want breakfast the next day, he told us three times that we would not be served supper unless we were seated in the dining-room before 8.30 and then finally (we were on the second floor, there is no lift) he flatly refused a polite request to help us upstairs with heavy luggage.
The room was clean - that's about it really. Smallest possible double bed, the foot of which was about 12 inches from the wall and not much more space round the sides. Bathroom tiny; shower cubicle tiny. It was also cold - the radiator either didn't work or the hotel's central heating had not yet been switched on for autumn. Room cost 57,60 euros.
The dining room was very crowded, less than a foot between us and the next table, and small tables. Industrial strength overhead lighting, rather like a supermarket. We were seated at 8.10 pm. Menus arrived at 8.25. Order taken at 8.40. Wine arrived at 9.00. First courses at 9.10. The menu has pretentious and hugely long descriptions of the dishes e.g. langoustines rôties, parfumées à l'huile de cèpes et salade de légumes craquants' = a few OK small poached langoustines with some cold strips of assorted veg. This course was just OK, main course of scollops again just OK but dull. A first course 'méli mélo etc etc....' was tired and tasteless and a supposed 'selle de sanglier etc etc' was a small, tough, nearly cold porcine chop with two little patches of watery parsnip puree. The dining room staff were all very pleasant but there seemed to be only one person who was actually a waitress, the others a selection of young people who looked lost and didn't do much at all. These four dishes cost us 62 euros!!! We decided not to support the restaurant financially any more and went out to a bar in Florac for coffee. We didn't stay for breakfast either.
Florac is probably lovely in the sun, but on a grey and wet september day it wasn't lovely at all.
