Impromptu 2 night getaway hoping to get into Belterra Hotel on a Sunday night. It was booked. They offered their sister property, Ogle Haus Inn and they booked us for a King Balcony Suite at $119 the same cost as a room at Belterra. We drove to VeVay approx 10 minutes west, checked in and were delighted with our room. The bed was comfortable; large space; balcony that was set back in a recess so we were out of the wind. The room was cold and we found out they had already shut off the heat for the season. Within an hour of speaking to the desk clerk, we had heat again.
What we couldn't understand was why we were smelling food for hours in the evening. From a previous post, we now know people must have been living there as we saw a full size outdoor grill. It did not bother us, but it did make us hungry!
I would not call it a quiet place to sit outside during the early evening, as there was much talking, laughing from them. But that was ok with me, and later on it quieted down.
We would actually stay here again instead of Belterra in a suite. But we would check to see if there was a family event or if it was mostly full. The noise does carry outside along the balcony as it is all connected in one long row. We were lucky again like I said earlier, our sitting area was set back and so out of site of people and the wind.
One note: the jacuzzi tub had steps to enter. The shower is also within the tub area. There is a handrail, but it did take some thought as to how to enter and exit it safely!
