Well, what can I say!! For an Aussie with minimal French language skills, Les Gentianettes certainly looked after us and catered for all of our needs AND without any hassles. Nothing seemed too much of a problem. The hotel is personally managed and run by the owner and all of the finer details reflect her passion of things being done... More

We stayed at Les Gentianettes for 7 days at the beginning of September (we are actually still here, it's our last night :( ). It was amazing! The most important for me it was very clean. It was surprisingly busy for the end of the season but very quiet. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. They have two great restaurants... More

For a modern hotel, this has lots of character and was a welcome respite after a day's hike over the hills from the shores of Lac Leman. The evening meal in the restaurant was a real highlight, and not just because we were very hungry! Breakfast was also excellent - look out for the fresh orange machine! The room we... More

We spent two nights here on a walking holiday. The hotel is well situated off the main road so very quiet. The rooms are small but well appointed. However the food is excellent and the restaurant was always full, deservedly do.

The hotel is spacious, comfortable and well designed. The location away from the main road avoids the noise of constant traffic that thunders through the town. Staff on arrival were very friendly and helpful given how dehydrated we were from our long alpine walk. There was also a well maintained indoor pool to cool down in. Our large room had... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights on a walking holiday. Lovely location, staff and ambience. The restaurant food was good but not great. It was a pity the room we were given (a family room) was so cramped.

Located in the centre of the small village, 50m from the main road. It has a local look and feel, decorated in 'mountain' style. Friendly staff at reception. Rooms are small, a bit outdated, with darkbrown blankets. Restaurant and wellness are good. Small balcony with plastic chairs.
