We had received a gift which was for one night in a hotel with dinner and breakfast. Since we didnt want to drive to far we decided to stay at the La Mainaz. We had been here in the sommer for a drink outside and thought this would be a nice stay. We arrived in the afternoon and the receptionist... More

I've been to the La Mainaz for a wedding and everything was just breathtaking. The owners could speak very well english and were nice at all times. Talking about the really amazing view over the lake to the Mont Blanc, just beautiful. The food was super tasty and served with excellent manors. The best is really the spacious rooms and... More

This is an extraordinary restaurant and hotel nestled in the Jura mountains. On a vraiment apprecie le cadre, l' accueil chaleureux de Sylvie et Francois, le repas gastronomique et une carte de vin a faire rever! The view is incredible, the food excellent, and the service warm and professional. Who could ask for anything more? The rooms have been redone... More

When we arrived at this hotel the staff were not very welcoming and spoke little English. There is a view of Lake Geneva, Mont Blanc and the Alps in the distance. This hotel is tired, dark and need of an upgrade. Our room was adequate with a balcony. The balcony looked very unsafe which was of great concern. The redeeming... More

We called in at the hotel restaurant for lunch after a Sunday trip to the Col de la Faucille. The view of the Alps and the Lake Geneva basin is truly stunning so make sure the weather is good up there before making the journey. The dining room has big picture windows to make the most of it. Food was... More

We wanted a spacious, clean and well maintained room and this is exactly what we got when we booked the junior suite at La Mainaz. It had the most breathtaking view of the Alps and Mont Blanc!! Absolutely loved waking up to it in the mornings. We didn't really use room-service so I cannot comment on this. However, the house-keeping... More

Great mountain setting and a warm reception were what characterised this one night stay. My only gripe really is that the decor and fittings need a bit of an upgrade as it is looking a bit worn. We had a quad room as our two small daughters were with us and we all slept comfortably and very peacefully as you... More

Francois and Sylvie make each of their guests feel like family. They have created such a warm and welcoming environment. The rooms are cozy and the views spectacular. The food is sublime. The local area has as much or little to offer depending upon your preference. Geneva is 30 minutes away for shopping and sightseeing. We cannot wait to visit... More

We were recommended this hotel and booked two nights en route to the South of France. The location is superb with views over Lac Leman and our room made the best of this with a view down the mountain far over the lake. The room was large and well appointed with a very comfortable spacious bed. The old-fashioned appearance and... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night, having found it in the catalog of Relais Du Silence. The location of this hotel is fantastic. The view on the Mont Blanc and Lac Leman is just breath taking. The hotel itself needs major updating. Our room was very spacious but incredibly old. The bathrooms (we had two bathrooms) really come... More
