I am being completely honest when I say that this was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. First the man at the check in desk was not very polite. He was not pleasant and acted like he did not want to deal with us. We were on the second floor and there was no elevator and no one... More

I was "stuck" here for a week and felt I was surving time in prison!....The staff was cold and didn't care about your needs and more than once I felt like I was interupting their lives when requesting a favor. Listen, I've been to 55 countries, this place is one of the worst staffs I've ever had to deal with.... More

We received very poor service at this restaurant and the food was only average. They rely on tourists but then don't treat them right. They refused to make a plain pasta dish for the children and only answered "we have what is on the menu". I do not recommend

We have visited this hotel several times - and we find very nice. I think most of the rooms now finally are renovated (which indeed was needed :-). We have always had our rooms facing the lake side and the view in the morning is just great when you wake up and looks at the lake. And the small terrasses... More

This is a fabulous hotel but I wouldn't think it will agree with everyone's taste. Lots of antiques around the place, in the reception, up the staircase, in the rooms and so on. It's all done in the style of organised chaos but the result is very 'boutique' and 'charming'. The bedroom we had was 'modest' in size but had... More

We are still puzzled by this hotel. The building is charming, the location on the banks of the lake is beautiful and there are pretty gardens although it was raining during our visit so we were not able to enjoy them. When we arrived we were rudely greeted by a very unfriendly receptionist. The hall was gloomy and full of... More

The hotel is in one sense charming and in another just too much. We arrived in beautiful Evian with no reservation but it was no problem as they had plenty of rooms. We chose a mid-priced room for €100 and while it was quite small with a tiny bathroom it was fine. The furniture was quite dated (not antique, just... More

I stayed in this hotel as part of a business trip to Evian, third week of July 2014. It was a brief experience since we arrived late and left early the next morning. What an incredible place! It consists of a main building next to Lac Leman and an annex building across the quite busy main road (Avenue de Grande... More

A spotlessly clean took with a stunning window out onto the lake. As others have commented there is too much clutter and it would be a good idea to clear the surfaces a little, although this does add to the quirky individuality and charm of the hotel. Breakfast was chaotic! It is necessary to have surfaces where plates and bowls... More
