Booked two rooms as part of our stay to attend conference at the congress centre.
One room was fine as had been recently modernised, the other gave some difficulty with the lock that had to be reset three times.
On the second day one of the rooms had not been cleaned and the bed not made.
We stayed in the Loges du Parc for 2 weeks in a studio room and had a very good experience. The hotel was quiet, the staff were friendly and the premises were very clean and well kept. Our studio contained a refrigerator, 2-burner stove, microwave and coffee maker - ideal for our needs. Maid service was only provided once a week, but that was not a problem for us. The location was handy to the train station, post office, restaurants and was a ten minute walk from the main shopping area and the casino. However, it was on a quiet street so there was no traffic noise.
We had just one night in L'Iroko but I'd be inclined to go back for longer. Our room had a side view of the lake and the road was quiet overnight even with our balcony doors open ( it was a warm night - though there was also a fan). We appreciated the hotel car park as we had lots of luggage to unload. The Italian receptionist (whose name I didn't get) was very helpful and friendly. Even though we arrived mid-evening and didn't get out to eat till gone 9pm, there were lots of lively restaurants nearby still doing service. The next door 'Skiff pub' was a brasserie that served wholesome food in a bustling atmosphere. Breakfast in the hotel was 12 euros pp which seems about standard from experience. It was a fairly typical buffet with good variety though a shame that it is served in a windowless room. Overall, recommended.

Overlooking a beautiful lake and mountains, the hotel has lovely views, great grounds and an impressive pool. However, the two-star Michelin restaurant is what really makes this hotel so special. The food was superb and not nearly as expensive as it would have been if located in a major city. The personable chef came around to talk with the evening diners. He shared with us his philosophy of the meal: ingredients have to be healthy and fresh and local; menu has to have limited salt, sugar and butter; the dish should have a mix of textures, colors and - of course - tastes. Every course was a success.
The standard hotel room has more limited views - but you get what you pay for.

Nice place, with a beautiful park around. Nice and large (octaginal pool), and good spa facilities. You can also sunbath outside during the warm season. 15 min walk from the city centre, so location is not central, but this is the price for being surrounded by green. There is also a bus but rather infrequent. Bring slippers or flip flops for the pool since they are compulsory, and otherwise you have to buy them (I found 9 eur pretty expensive, but I never bought slippers in my life so this could be reasonable).
We stayed here for two weeks this July, and really had a wonderful time. The apartment was very functional and comfortable for three adults. Also, there is a nice variety of restaurants within walking distance. Be sure to check out the local bakery, the meat and cheese store, the grocery and Le Caribou.
Please keep in mind that linens and towels are not provided. This is not uncommon in Europe. You can "rent" them from the hotel, or bring your own. We took along some old sheets and just discarded them to make some space to pack home new treasures. For towels, we find that the microfiber travel towels available at nicer outdoor stores work great for light travel.
The staff at the hotel do speak English, and went out of the way to be helpful without being intrusive.
We hope to go back!
