Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The goal of our girls trip was to explore the Lavaux area, the food, wine and museums. The Auberge de la Gare was the perfect location in the vineyards, above Grandvaux and the lakeside town of Cully. Only steps from the train station. The check-in was easy and welcoming like the family that runs the inn. The rooms were clean, with a nod to alpine cosy but updated with all the modern conviences and wonderful views of the lake of Geneva. Dinner was excellent - both nights. The homemade jams, birchermuesli and breads for breakfast were delicious, not to mention the local cheeses! To top it off our hosts arranged a wine tasting in Grandvaux at the Joly winery that was small and personable. In 10 minutes we traveled by train to Lausanne to the Olympic Museum and to Vevey to Charlies World. We loved it so much we extended our stay.

Excellence location and hospitality. Even though location is across the railways, we do not have any problem in the evening. Breakfast was excellence!
We stayed for 2 nights and had lunch and dinner at the restaurant (once for lunch and twice for dinner). Great food!
But not too many options for vegetarian.
Will be great if there is a daily menu (which is not on the regular menu). Especially if the guess choose to have lunch and dinner in the restaurant during stay.

This hotel offers everything from a wonderful stay, beautiful room and view towards Lake Geneva. Highlight would be to taste the excellent food from the restaurant. Please ensure to make reservation in advanced. I am a frequent return guest, who really enjoyed staying in this hotel. Simply highly recommended.

Lovely place. Nice rooms, wonderful attentive service and excellent meals. We very much enjoyed our weekend here. You are by the railway line but we were not troubled by that and the advantage is that you are close to the station! The view beyond the railway to the lake is stunning.

It is always a warm welcome in this hotel and restaurant. I spent my short trip 2-3 times a year at this place. Firstly I enjoyed beautiful scenery and comfortable, clean room. Then for sure had an excellent lunch or dinner menu. At the restaurant. The stay was really stamped a beautiful memory.

This is a actually a restaurant which also has some hotel rooms. The location is very special right next to a railway line and overlooking the Geneva Lake and in the middle of a wine region. Grandvaux Station is only about 100 meters away. There are three entrances to the accommodation. One via the restaurant and patio, which is also closest to the station, one from the street and one from the back. We lived in room 1 which has a certain view of the railway and the lake but what you see most is a chicken farm and vineyards. At times we were disturbed by the sound of the trains and by a fan that we believe belongs to the restaurant's kitchen. The room was normal sized and simply furnished. There is no air conditioning, no safety box but there is a TV with international channels and free wifi that worked well. There is an electric kettle in the room so you can cook tea or coffee. The hotel has no elevator but as it is on a slope you can walk in from outside to different floors. The bathroom was clean and had a bath with shower. The restaurant has a nice outdoor dining area and served a completely Ok food and had locally produced wines. However, as everywhere in Switzerland, it is incredibly expensive. The breakfast is served between 8-10 and was a smaller but very good buffet. There was everything you could wish for. It was nice to sit and have breakfast outdoors on the terrace overlooking the lake and the railway. The staff is mainly French speaking but does their best to also speak English with us who cannot speak French. Around the hotel there are lots of vineyards and so you can make very pleasant walks in the area. The hotel had late check out at 12am which we thought was very good. This is a nice small hotel with a very special location. To be in Switzerland, the accommodation was also very good value for money.

Loved our stay here. It was convenient to have a car to easily get out to the smaller towns and offers free parking, and it’s right next to the train station if you want to get into Lausanne (about a 10 minute ride on the train to the main station). It’s located in a really cute residential area with beautiful vineyards cascading down the hill side (there is a tasting room that the owners can direct you to). The rooms are nice, reasonably sized and decorated in a cute country motif (and a larger comfy bed with two twins pushed together). The rate comes with breakfast each morning and they also have an award-winning restaurant for dinner that’s open Tues – Sat. The owners are very involved in every aspect of the place – and you can tell their passion for it in their friendliness, service and quality that they deliver (I don’t know if Philippe actually sleeps, as he’s the head chef for the wonderful dinner service that goes until 10 p.m. and is then out setting up for breakfast around 6:30 a.m.). And check out the winery across the street! The convenience to the train means you will hear the noise, but we found that once we closed the windows, it didn’t disrupt our sleep (we were there in September, so it was cool enough to be able to close them). We would definitely stay here again, if we’re in the area.

We chose to stay here for 4 nights based on the Trip advisor reviews! If you are travelling by train the Grandvaux station , a small one is within very easy walking distance from the hotel , about two minutes in fact. Now I know what you may be thinking, if the train is nearby the noise will be a problem, in fact it is not noisy at all, the windows are also double glazed. Auberge has views across Lake Leman (Geneva).
On arrival you are greeted warmly and made to feel very welcome, we were shown to our room (5) which was very spacious plenty of storage space and a good sized bathroom, everything immaculate! There is tea and coffee making facilities in the room, we also had a table and chairs outside the room on a verandah which is nice to sit outside and enjoy some sunshine. The Auberge is a family run business which I believe is really important as there is a sense of pride and passion in the service provided. Phillipe and Raymonde are superb hosts and alway take time each day to talk to you and also assist with any enquiries you may have. Breakfast is a continental buffet with an excellent choice of cheeses, meat,boiled eggs can be cooked using a machine at the table. The breads and croissants are complemented by the home made preserves at least six to choose from, one in particular was amazing I would have loved the recipe, but it is a family recipe. Phillippe is a chef which leds me in to my next comment take the opportunity to have dinner here the Auberge has a very popular restaurant so booking is essential. Very good menu choices await and the food is absolutely amazing, local produce used, portion sizes are generous.
If you are travelling by train from Lausanne to Grandvaux there are two trains per hour on week days and one per hour weekends, the train numbers are S4 and S5.
Things to do during your stay include a vineyard tour which can be arrange through Phillippe, also there are plenty of paths to walk through the vineyards, some are quite steep, but you can always walk say to another town such as Cully not a long walk from the Auberge then catch a train back to Grandvaux. On arrival at the hotel you will get a Lauvaux card which enables you to travel on trains and buses free in the area including to Lausanne, for free for the duration of your stay including the day of departure. Other tips during your stay are take the train to Vevey only about 10-15 minutes the town here is large has good shopping etc and also they have ferries that go on the lake so that you can travel the lake and see the sights and vineyards from the lake we did Vevey to Lutry then caught the train back to Grandvaux.
We just loved our stay at Auberge de la Gare and highly recommend staying here, we would definitely stay here again. thank you Phillippe and Raymonde for your hospitality!

We would definitely come back if we are visiting Lavaux again!

Room: Very clean and neat, had good connection of Wifi as well.

Location: Right in front of a train station Grandvaux; by train about 10 min. to Lausanne, 40 min to Vevey, an hour to Montreux or Chillon Castle. Close to many of the wineries around Lavaux area. Great view of Lake Leman can be seen from the hotel and a restaurant's terrace seats.

Services: Perfect in every way! They gave us this ticket called Lavaux Transport Card which discounts many of the attractions from Lausanne to Lavaux area.

Foods: Nice breakfast with poach eggs and 4 kinds of local cheese. We had a dinner on our last day, but it was fantastic! We ordered veal, risotto and perch fillet (freshly caught in Lake Leman!) and every thing was delicious!!
