Small cozy hotel by Geneva lake. Very convenient for business travelers- commuting to Nyon office (10 min). The rooms are modern, service is v good, staff is welcoming. It does not have a fitness center but there is an outdoor swimming pool of decent size. I wanted to use a swimming pool in the morning and the staff opened it for me. It was warm but not very clean due to heavy rains recently however the stuff did apologise for that. The true highlight is a little beach by the lake where you can enjoy sunshine and the lake/mountain view whle sippling something nice on a sunbed.
Unfortunately, dinner at the restaurant was a disappointment. We were recommended to take a special set menu. The aperitif was delicious but then it all went downhill...a starter was strange: scrambled eggs with bits of smoked salmon a-la breakfast , and the main with grilled mix of sausages /meat with chips was rather standard. The next morning the breakfast had a selection of scrambled eggs, smoked salmon , sausages... it was difficult not to make a connection. Maybe if I opted for the mains from a- la karta I could have avoided disappointment.
In all a nice place to stay but be aware of food choices..and soiled table clothes.

I have stay here once a week for the past three weeks for business as my head office is in Nyon. It is much better than any of the other hotels I have stayed in locally with a great location and wonderful views over the lake. The receptionists are freindly, the service is good and the hotel is very clean. The rooms are large, have nice bathroons, comfy beds and free wi-fi. the breakfast is good and the restauarant was very pleasant. Overall no complaints and this will become my regular hotel for my business trips to head office.

This is my first time at this hotel. I usually stay at the next town over (Nyon). this was a very pleasant surprise. the rooms were nice, big and clean; the hotel was quiet. breakfast is not stellar, but very nice nonetheless. there's a nice bar, fireplace and pianist. free wi-fi (!)...
it's really nice

If you want classic rudeness and apathy, by some staff and certainly management, stay here. We had an apauling stay here. I incurred the wrath of serving staff because I asked for a clean plate. Management were away skiing and could not be contacted during my weekend stay. Our credit card was charged without our permission or discussion of our legitimate complaint. I will never, ever stay here again. A dated, tired, over priced, badly run establishment. A visitor centre dedicated to displaying classic rude French-Swiss rudeness.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your comments. unfortunately we cannot find traces of your file nor the dates of your stay under your name to help us to give you the right reply. Maybe you shared the room of someone who registered under another name. I am quite chocked by your words and need to clarify the situation which seams incredable.
With my best regards.

The hotel is a part of luxury Swiss life and you can feel it from the reception, sleeping in your room, walking in the yard and to the lake or during breakfast. Unfortunately no fitness room. The Internet is free at the whole territory of the hotel

The hotel is simply lovely, the site is exquisite and watching the morning break from our balcony over the lake and the snow-clad peaks in the distance is magical. As was having the hotel pool to ourselves the morning we were there. Through booking.com I had a fabulous deal which made this most luxurious of my stop-over hotels one of the cheapest. The breakfast buffet was up to standard, (fruits, yoghurts, cheeses, breads, boiled eggs to cook yourself). The Bogner bathroom products were lovely and there was even hair conditioner for a nice change.
There were a few drawbacks, however: the staff were overall a bit too laid-back. I had the impression that if you were to ask, nothing would be too great an imposition. In the absence of requests, service just didn't occur to them. One staff member did distinguish himself from the rest by offering a level of service commensurate with the style of the hotel and I'm still grateful to him, it wasn't easy crossing Central Europe alone with 2 kids, one of whom had a broken arm, and it's the little services and kindnesses that make all the difference.

We had a three-night stay, which we enjoyed. The room was good - and my wife is not easily pleased with bathrooms! From the top floor (room 304) we had a very nice view over the grass down to the lake, with the mountains rising on the other side. Strolling down to the lake-side was nice (though we felt they could actually make *much* more of the garden area). We had one very good dinner in the restaurant, and one not quite so good on a Monday (perhaps the chef was having a day off). The staff were all helpful and pleasant. The lounge and bar area is comfortable, and leads out onto a well-designed terrace overlooking the lake.
After 6:00 Jean-Pierre was playing piano in the lounge, was happy to play some Duke Ellington, and did it remarkably well. If you like that kind of thing, it is worth going just to settle in the lounge with a Negroni for a chat and listen to him.
The Orchidarium, which is walking-distance nearby, is lovely.

Room Tip: 304, for example, had an excellent view of the lake.
