Simply Charming

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Feb 2022via mobile
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.

I just enjoyed my third stay at Auberge de la Gare, and every time I leave thinking it's the most wonderful hotel and restaurant in the world. Philippe and Raymonde are such warm and thoughtful hosts. The rooms are big and beautiful and comfortable, and every meal I've eaten there is incredible. I hope I can return before too long.

We loved our four nights and two dinners at Auberge de la Gare in tiny Grandvaux on the shore of Lake Geneva. The setting is exceptionally lovely, overlooking the village and glistening lake beyond, and featuring a terrace shaded by grapevines. There’s also a petite chicken coop occupied by a handful of fluffy exotic creatures. Philippe and Raymonde are gracious hosts. The rooms are quite comfortable, with French country decor and vintage armoires and dressers for clothes. The bathrooms and windows are blessedly modern. The inn is very much “at the station” and trains do make noise, but we quickly became accustomed to their whooshing noise as they passed. We enjoyed dinner there for two nights and appreciated the skillfully executed dishes built upon fresh, local ingredients. I especially loved mornings, when Philippe presented a delicious breakfast and I was entertained by locals stopping by for a cafe and a chat. Trains to Lausanne run every half hour or so, making it a convenient base for exploring the region.

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.

This is an absolutely wonderful place to stay.. The rooms are very well done and the bathrooms are very modern and extremely well done. The view is one of the best of Lake Geneva and the restaurant in great. The hotel staff treats you like family and the drive to and from the hotel through the small town streets and vineyards is something you just have to experience. This a great place for the weekend or for a longer stay

Room tip: The rooms overlook lake Geneva are wonderful
