Not worthy of five stars as too expensive.
My wife and I spent a night here recently.
The room was fine, but the bathroom is complicated - a previous reviewer commented on the transparent glass wall between the shower area and the bedroom. Well, amongst all those confusing switches, there's one that makes the glass opaque thus saving your dignity! It does take a minute or two to become effective, so maybe was missed by the previous writer. And it wouldn't be difficult to miss that it's there - there must be about ten switches in the bathroom alone - some for regular lighting, and some for electric blue mood lighting, and the one for the glass wall.
The bed was adequate, and our sleep was fine.
We ate dinner at the in-house restaurant before retiring. The food was fine, as was the wine and the beers - but it was over-priced and I felt they were trying too hard to be a gournet venue rather than a Best Western hotel. A bit too fancy for my liking, but tasty and very edible, nevertheless.
We did not partake of breakfast the next morning, so no comment about what was on offer.
Overall, whilst the quality was above that normally found in Best Western hotels, I felt it was trying to be something that it wasn't and that effort just wasn't necessary.
It must be said that the staff were all very pleasant and efficient.
Recommended? The jury is out (the cost is too high, both for the room and for the evening meal, but the quality is high too - it's not really what a BW is all about though).
Will I return? Probably not - there must be less expensive hotels in a better location within the town of Epinal (The Lafayette is, after all, in an Economic Park - i.e. surrounded by low level commercial units, all of which look less than ten years old. Boring!) less
