“Team motivation trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

I went to this hotel during a team building/motivation trip.
First major plus: the view!
If you are lucky, as I was, you'll get a room overlooking the Swiss alps and the Leman (aka Geneva) Lake. Breathtaking!
I even had a terrace!
My room was very clean, as was the bathroom.
Food was very good (buffet, so you can choose).
Meeting facilities were perfect.
They also have two parking areas: one covered, the other one not. But anyway, it's safe!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with Alps view!

This is one of the nicest hotels that I have stayed in, in a long time. Granted you can get a larger room for a small increase in price. I was in the area for work, and was under budget constraints. None the less, it is a great place to stay.

The service is good, the restaurant is outstanding, and the view of the Alps is fantastic.

Room Tip: room with a view, and or a bit larger is the way to go.

While the quality of service in hotels in the french speaking part of Switzerland is already usually below my standards - certainly related to the low level of professional background of the staff from France - the reception at Prealpina scored quite high in my personal ranking of client unfriendliness. Well, I recognize, I should have told them when reserving that I had a voucher for a 20% rebate on the room price...but seriously, i don't really care about the money, but this kind of situation is always a good way to test a hotel personal.... conclusion: there is a nice way to tell a client that the hotel can not accept a voucher and then there is the Prealpina way which makes the client really feel like an idiot. Otherwise, the rooms are clean, even though without charm and breakfast was not really a winner, but then, the hotel is not that expensive and the view on the lake at least compensates partly

Would stay here again. Staff was friendly and the restaurant first rate. We stayed here with a bunch of hungry and tired cyclists and the Pre-Alpina was just what we needed for another day of riding

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2010

I'm the owner of a small video production company and we filmed a conférence for Nestlé Research at the lovely castle of Oron in Switzerland. We asked the castel where to stay (2 nights) and they mentionned the prealpina as the closest to the castle.
Everything started smoothly but a mix up happened in the reservation and the hotel took advantage of this to charge us with extra money. Appart from this the view is fabulous but the room rates are way to expensive. the rooms looks like cheap motel's and the bed are not confortable to say the least. I would strongly recommand you forget about this place unless you're masochist ;-)
