I stayed two night on business at this hotel. The location is fantastic, right on the lake and from the outside the hotel looks modern. However once you leave the reception (which strangely is on the first floor) and go back to ground level where my room was, it was a bit like walking into a prison block, and the... More

My wife and I stayed at the end of July for 1 night in a Double room with Mountain view. This was one of 11 different hotels during our road trip and was the worst we experienced. The room wasn't very large and had a strange smell upon entering. The carpet also had lots of stains all over it. There... More

Stayed here for one night on route to Italy. The location is great, just across the road from the lake so stunning views -some rooms don't have a lake view so best to check. The bedroom itself was a good size let down by a tatty bathroom with a grab rail over bath that was rusting plus a very basic... More

On the plus side : nice views of the lake, tables nicely set, very modern and clean. Good choice of food. On the minus side : the waitress didn't know her hands from her feet and was always interrupting the conversation rudely. We couldn't get a smile out of her the whole meal. The food was good but we didn't... More

On the way back to CH, after a "Culinary trip" to France, we thought since we were near Nantua "Quenelles de Brochet, Sauce Nantua", would be a light enough lunch after "gorging" at the various Temples of food (Troisgros, Lameloise, Levernois, etc.). We chose this place as it had a view over the lake from the second floor restaurant...and were... More

Booked for a one night stay en route to Chamonix and it was a real let down. Reception and restaurant are very modern and clean, but the rooms, although clean are one up from a prison cell in my opinion. There is a very small double bed. A TV and one chair and that's about it. If a double room... More

Our room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast sufficient and exactly what you would expect for the price paid. This was a nice peaceful and quiet spot for us to break our trip on the way to Italy. The restaurant was a surprise in that the food and service was extremely good for what I thought was a hotel off... More

A comfortable stop off close to the motorway but secluded and quiet. The carpark is locked at night which was important for us since we had a lot of stuff in the car. We did not explore the town, but it would have been very easy if we had had time. The hotel is right by the lake, and we... More
