Quick weekend away drove over from Switzerland for a romantic getaway.
The Villa is a beautifully refurbished convent perched above old town Lyon and within walking distance to the most charming parts of the town.
The view- the whole city rolls out in front of you...from the room or the dining room or the pool...special mention to the view sitting in jacuzzi.
We stayed in a junior suite on two floors and had (as with all the rooms) a stellar view.
The restaurant- a 1 Star Michelin is in line for it's second star- excellent- with at least half the patrons from outside the hotel (which tells you something)...especially in a town such as Lyon. I wrote a separate review for this meal.
Bed, bedding, towels, amenities, complimentary sparkling and still water and focused service was generally at the level one would expect. Could have used Q-Tips in the bathroom.
The little niggles?
Luggage was not in the room when we walked in.
Bathroom makeup light was fixed uncomfortably high for my girlfriend...doing her makeup on her tiptoes was irritating.
The lights for the entire room were linked to the bathroom....so middle of the night visits to the bathroom lit up the whole room.
Overall we very much enjoyed our stay, would stay again and warmly recommend.
