We visited the restaurant "Vivre" on February 14th because it had the best selection of vegetarian food of all the high-end restaurants in the city, to celebrate a birthday. To make one thing clear, the food was excellent throughout, both vegetarian and 'regular'; so was the service once we were seated. However, we'd booked a table for four two weeks...

My husband and I have enjoyed L'Arrivee for the last several years on our way to and from Berlin. Our stay this time, however, has convinced us never to return. Upon our arrival, the woman behind the desk refuted our promised breakfast in our reservation, even though we showed her the confirmation email from Orbitz. It was as though she...

Been staying here several times a year over the last 4 years. Used to be a top notch though expensive hotel and spa. In the last year the management must have decided to cut costs because it is all cheap, cheap, cheap now. The bathrobes are threadbare, the toiletries low quality. The restaurant food has also taken a dive. For...

A hotel with this level of design, service, cuisine, and of course room quality is oft delivered with a certain overconfidence; not so with l'Arrivee. There's nothing on site short of excellent, but staying there feels comfortable and relaxing. It's situated in a quiet area with an open garden setting, away from hustle of city center or tourist area. If...

Stayed here for 2 Nights. Nice and clean rooms, friendly front desk. Didn't use the Spa so I can't comment on that. Overall a pleasant experience. The only thing that bothered me was the squeak coming from the room above me when someone was walking. Also you can only use WIFI on one device.

We were heading for Leipzig from the Channel Ports and this made a perfect overnight stop. It was comfortable, friendly, tranquil and fantastic value for the quality of the hotel. There was also secure parking for my fellow traveller's smart car. I didn't make use of the Spa but the swimming pool would be a treat after a long hot...

Stayed here for a five days. Nice and very clean rooms, beautiful place, helpful staff very good spa, but very poor wi fi. A several times a day lost connection... I thought that in the 21-st century , we can use the communications, but in this hotel just that disappointed.

A welcome stop over after a long drive from Poland. A lovely spacious family room, very welcoming reception staff too who were bombarded with questions from our 14 year old son who had clocked all his favourite cars on the drive and carpark- Lamborghini, Porche, Fararri, Audi the list goes on. However he did find that they all belonged to...

Fabulous room, excellent facilities, great staff. Can't fault this hotel! The Spa was wonderful, the facilities excellent especially the Hammam! Located on the edge of the forest so there was lots of lovely walking. Would love to visit again.

Very good service at the reception, the same at the Rustique restaurant, very nice girls in charge of service. Food was also excellent and the price very good for the quality you get. Spa is also great, we enjoyed it a lot and would go back anytime.
