The town and this hotel were recommended to me by friends, and I was certainly not disappointed. A short walk from the station, the hotel is right on the lake with a beautifully maintained garden. Our room was on the first floor, very comfortable, with a great view over the lake. On our last day we were visited by the... More

Okay... I kinda liked this hotel but in my mind it needs to address a few minor things and this would be an awesome hotel. The place looks good with a killer location right on the lake... but on arrival the reception desk was unmanned with no sign of anyone... which gave a poor impression. When the staff appeared, they... More

Stayed 2 nights during a brief business trip to the area. Beautiful setting on a lake, wish I came earlier in the year. Room was clean, staff helpful and polite. Small town nearby was interesting to visit and dine.

I had seen the hotel just after it opened and it looked very appealing, also their website. So I decided to afford it the next time in Geneva, though it is not cheap. Firstly, be warned: the elevator only starts on the first floor, not on the ground floor, so you have to carry your suitcase one floor up through... More

I noticed that the reviews for this hotel are rather old and need some refreshment as well. I spent three nights in this hotel in September 2015. Geneva is an expensive city and we found this to be a reasonable option paying about EUR 150 per night excluding breakfast. Staff were friendly and check-in and out went smootly. We received...

The hotel is beautifully situated and our lake facing room was very well appointed with the walk in shower producing incredible pressure. the only disappointment was the service in the restaurant (slow) the food however, although a little pricey, was very good

Again for business in the nice Switzerland and again in this fine hotel. It is so wonderful quiet and located on the sea shore. The rooms are now completely refurbished in a modern style (also the bathrooms).
