I stayed here for a business conference and this hotel was awful even more so if you don't have a car because the town is absolutely dead. The restaurants in town never seem to be open. The food served at lunch during our conference was tasteless so didn't try to eat there for dinner. You cannot change the temperature in... More

Given its location so close to Switzerland I found the prices very reasonable. Typically stay at the Domaine de Divonne for twice the price, but couldn't get a room there this time. The quality of the bedroom was, In my opinion, superior and location near lake good although I didn't have a lake view. A bit far out of town.... More

Here on business for two nights - would not return! I've stayed in many hotels and have never received such bad customer service from reception. The first night and the next morning there was no hot water so endured two cold showers, water did not drain from the bath unless you took the entire drain cap out, the bed sheets... More

Stayed in this hotel for a conference. Service was terrible. First night my room didn't get cleaned. Second night the minibar didn't get filled and the bath robe disappeared. No aircon. When I enquired, they told me to open my window! Which by the way opens to a parking lot where garbage trucks come at 5am. The food is average,... More

Stayed only one night; disappointed to hear that no more rooms despite reservation. I received an apartment in other building near the hotel. Reception staff was very slow and took 15min to find the reservation. Dinner was very good including service.

Booked in just for a change of scenery for a night. I know Divonne well and contrary to other reviews, you do not need your car to get into the town centre - just wak out of the hotel on opposite side to the lake and take the path by the river - 5 minutes max - so location by... More

Not so positive I'm afraid. May be I am proned to attract negative energy, most of the staff I interacted with weren't particularly friendly. Perhaps because I do not speak French and it had to be English, and there was a lost in translation somwhere. Room is spacious, the balcony with lake and mountain view is pleasant. Room is somewhat... More

Location is OK if you have a car, and it is about 1 km from the center of Divonne-les-Bains. Staff was very friendly. Apartment was very spacious and clean with very good equipment. The neighborhood is maybe not so nice, but it was OK for one night stay. Hotel also provides spa, but we didn't have time to check it... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of an Interrailing holiday during the summer. I had wanted to visit a friend who lives in Nyon but was also on a budget. This hotel fitted the brief perfectly compared to the much more expensive hotels in Switzerland. We were lucky that my friend offered to drive us however, as to get... More

Stayed overnight on a recent business trip, and the accommodation was very good, and although we did not get chance to use the spa or see much of the lake, we intend to go back on vacation in the summer months. The hotel offers a free shuttle to Geneva airport which is worth knowing and a good saving on taxi... More
