Very good place, Great Bath, not really expensive if you stay at the hotel. Bath price are calculated with time passed... The bill could explose ! So Baths and all attractions are really pleasant. Really good price on the small take away restaurant.

God hotel -- rooms are not very well appointed though. Breakfast is typical European - frugal but you can ask for specials at an extra cost. The Dinner Buffet is pretty good and surprisingly as the only meal option in the hotel fairly inexpensive. Suggest just go for the Plate of the Day Buffet - you can always take Dessert... More

It's not a very refined or quit SPA but a relaxed fun set of pools and water treats. The whirlpool is the big attraction. It's similar to an carousel in hot water. A great experience for kids and grown ups.

The hotel is quite good in general (though the bed was not comfortable). But the bains themselves are awesome! Its one of the best experiences we have had. Though it was cold outside, the water was extremely warm and comfortable. A must visit place!!!

This is an utterly pleasant and relaxing hotel. Staff are friendly. Prices are reasonable. The baths are great and you can also get massages, facials, etc in the wellness centre that is part of the hotel. The buffet in the Oasis restaurant is great - the only criticism of it might be "how not to overeat?" :-) Some of the... More

This is the third time we spend a weekend in Lavey-les-bains and specifically in this hotel: rooms are fair but clean, better the ones on the first floow with terrazze on the beautiful garden. The hotel provides free access to warm pools, where you can have hamman, sauna or simply enjoy the contrast between the warm water and the chilly... More

First I should say I love, love, love Lavey-les-Bains and have been visiting for years with a local friend. Until recently I'd only ever come to the baths for 3 or 4 hours at a time. This week I stayed for a few days in the hotel. I wasn't expecting much and was overall pleasantly surprised by the hotel decor... More

To be fair, this hotel is quiet and accomodating. The room is clean and simple. But the pillow and the bed are uncomfortable for the price I paid. 175 CHF. each person and extra person for 80 CHF. I was with my husband and my 12 yrs. old son, so we paid for that simple room for 435.00 CHF. per... More

We spent a week end in Lavey after our recent move. This break was excellent, the hotel is good, the staff attentive, and our "grand charme" room was very spacious. The food is good, plenty to chose from in the buffet. We had a lot of fun in the pools, the sun was out so it was lovely Only downside... More

The hotel reminds you of the ones from the 'belle epoque', as does the furniture and decoration. Most importantly, the beds are fine, the bed covers very light, and in this hotel you can still sleep with the windows open. The spa facilities are one of a kind, and a must see, especially on a bright and cloudless day ,... More
