I spend four nights with a group of friends in this hotel, though I live 10Km down the lake. I know Nyon pretty well and was sure that this would be the best hotel in town. Maybe it is...but then I am disappointed.
Let's start positive; the location is great! The entrance side of the hotel is on a nice street filled with restaurants, bars and cute shops and only a short stroll (uphill) away from the Chateau. The lake side in on the boulevard and gives great view towards the Alps and the lake.
The staff is very polite and helpful. The bar only opens at 16:30, but if you want to start drinking earlier, there are plenty of public bars around.
Great breakfast!! We didn't have dinner, but the menu looked good.
But then....the building itself. Should have been renovated years ago! I like a classical style (though prefer modern), but this was just outdated, dusty (not litterally!) and not cozy. I had a very nice spacious room (suite) overlooking the lake and the bed slept wonderful, but the whole feel to it....old!
A problem I did not face persoanlly; my room was located on the first floor, which is a smoking floor. My room was fine and I smelled nothing, but some of my friends got offered rooms on the same floor that smelled like you entered a ashtray! They did get move to other rooms on a different floor though!
