5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Oct 2016
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 stayed here one night and enjoyed a really good meal on the terrace overlooking the lake (and the railway line!) The staff were very friendly, attentive and helpful. Delicious lamb! You just have to accept that the railway line is just beneath you and see beyond it. Trains rush past but that doesn't spoil the enjoyment of the panoramic view of the lake and mountains. It was a very warm evening/night, and our room at the front of the hotel was very hot. Opening the windows wasn't an option for us due to the noise from passing trains, but it still did not bother us too much. Breakfast on the terrace the next morning was again delicious, buffet style, with excellent coffee! We will certainly return.

Room tip: Book a room at the side of the hotel if you want a quieter night!

Room was comfortable with nice view of Lake Leman. We stayed Auberge de la Gare four days and enjoyed dinner every evening in the panoramic terrace. They are particuler to use local produced ingredients and all the plates sutisfied us. I strongly recommend to stay this Auberge to enjoy La Vaux atmosphere.

Room tip: Good view of Lake Leman

I enjoyed an excellent stay at Auberge de la Gare during my recent Switzerland trip. I had been looking for rooms in the Eastern end of Lake Geneva, but had not been happy with what I found in Lausanne, Montreux, or Vevey, until I stumbled across this property, but what a find. Comfortable, attractive rooms (some with views), at very affordable prices, and above an excellent restaurant. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The location, less than 100 yards from the train station, is particularly good if you are using a Swiss Pass to get around the region. And, although the tracks are right across the street, the passing trains didn't generate as much noise as I would have expected, more like passing automobiles than the rumble of freight trains that I'm familiar with in America.

Note that the restaurant is not open on Sundays and Mondays, but there are other local options when it is closed. Overall, this is a great option if you are looking for someplace in the Lausanne/Montreux area. The setting in the midst of the vineyards also sets this property apart from most other lodging options in this area.

This is a delightful hotel and restaurant. Our hosts were attentive and kind to the whole family from the moment we arrived to our departure. We stayed one night and ate in the restaurant that evening. Before dinner the children were invited to see the rabbits and chicks and were welcomed in the restaurant. They ate their children's menu with gusto and also enjoyed my nettle soup, which I hadn't expected but is one of the best things about French food. The breakfasts are especially good, with homemade jams, croissants and coffee a la carte. We would definitely recommend staying and eating here!

Room tip: Our rooms (2&3) overlooked the railway line (it's auberge de la gare naturally), but we weren't too disturbed by the trains.

Beautiful view, parking in front of hotel. Amazing kitchen, good breakfast and comfortable bed. This family hotel is small and since many years very good. Not far from Lausanne and train station is in front of the hotel. Not so loud for me.
