Located about half an hour away from Old Town Geneva, this place offered a classy and quiet accommodation for our big family. It was a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy area.

We were warmly welcomed by Silva, the front desk person. This hotel is a "must experience" for travellers hoping to relax in an atmosphere of serenity and beauty. The view of Lake Geneva with its many yachts is a thing of beauty. The excellently selected room amenities provide an ambience of "home away from home". A golf course, although private... More

The hotel is located outside Nyon. It has a large lawn and its own access to the lake. The Swiss National Museum in Prangins is within easy walking distance. Despite the secluded location it is not totally quiet, as airplanes approaching the Geneva airport can be heard. The room cleaning staff excelled in cleaning our rooms while we were at... More

On a recent trip in Switzeland, we joined some friends who were staying at la BARCAROLLE ; we found many of the staff had poor attitudes and delivered poor service to guests. During our lunch, on many occasions we had issues with the staff restaurant service and instead of finding solutions the staff just compounded them further. Supervisory staff that... More

We had an absolutely wonderful stay - the staff couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating! The rooms were spacious with a small balcony. We had both a delicious dinner and breakfast had a large selection. Outside of the restaurant is a nice patio and deck area facing a large open lawn. And there is also a nice seating area... More

Nice quiet place by the lake with beautiful views of the lake and alps. Wish they would have coffee/ tea facilities in the room for american travellers. The breakfast is good and the dinner and lunch can be pricey. You need a car to get to the center of town or a quick walk gets you there in 10 mins.... More

Hotel literature advertizes a "beach bar," giving the impression that it is possible to swim in the lake right in front of the "beach bar." That is not possible. When we were there in June, the water was clogged with water weeds, detritus from nesting birds, and was turbid and quite dirty. There is, however, a publc beach reached by... More

The hotel is situated on the lake. In summer is possible to swim in the lake with own little harbour. For visiting arounding, bikes are at disposal. The Restaurant was nothing special. The rooms good with sea view.
