“Spectacular Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2011

We just returned from a one week trip through the Berner Oberland by way of Geneva, and our stay at the Angleterre was the icing on the cake. This hotel is spectacular, from the convient address-across from the lake and many restaurants, to the well appointed rooms, and great service, really pleasant staff. The beds were very comfy and felt great after a week of hiking in the Alps. My only regret is that we didn't know what we were missing and could easily have stayed longer. We will be sure to return.

A small boutique hotel with excellent service, extremely friendly staff and a very knowledgeable concierge team. Rooms are comfortable and include free internet access. Breakfast is served in Windows restaurant, which has amazing views of the Jet d'eau and offers a wide choice of food both buffet and a la carte along with juices and even champagne. In the evening the hotel bar, The Leopard Room is not to be missed even if just to check out the decor! It can get quite busy later but hotel guests get priortity for tables and there is also live music.

With regards to the location, the hotel is just across from the lake and hotel guests can get free tickets from reception to use on the yellow water taxi's to cross to the opposite side.

For families, the botanical gardens are around ten minutes walk away and are a good place to take children. There is also a small train which stops near the hotel entrance and goes along the lakeside regularly.

All in all I would definitely recommend this hotel and Geneva as a destination to anyone travelling to Switzerland.

Wow! This place is so so fancy! I just loved it. It is really so so very special and you can see why it is 5*. Our room was probably one of the smaller ones but it was perfect and the staff were so professional and amazing. It is very expensive (for me anyway!) but as a treat - it is worth it - I loved it.

We went to this hotel to celebrate my birthday. We had a really wonderful time the staff were extremely attentive and very helpful. In the evening at dinner they brought in a wonderful birthday cake with a giant sparkler on top it was so delightful and the waitress sang happy birthday to me. I would highly recommend this hotel.

My spouse and I spent one night at the D'Angleterre after a hiking trip in the French Alps. Prior to our arrival, we received an email that welcomed us in advance and asked us to fill out a short questionnaire to ensure that any preferences we had could be accommodated - a very nice/professional touch. We received a very warm greeting upon our arrival at the hotel, check in was seemless and the desk clerk gave us a tour of our upgraded room, where we found some fruit and a few sweets waiting for us. The bathroom was spacious. Turn down service included lit tea candles in the bathroom. The room was very quiet, which ensured a deep sleep. The room was immaculately clean. The decor can be described as 'masculine'. We had a number of requests - an early wake up call, reservations at a restaurant that could accommodate my spouse's specific dietary preferences, a taxi, a premier chocolate shop, etc. All these were dealt with very efficiently by desk staff. The location of the hotel is ideal - right on the lake, very close to the jeu d'eau, within a short walking distance (about 12 mins) from the train station, close to the designer shops and also a short walk to the old town (no need for a taxi to and from the train station). If you need to get to the airport, you can take a train from the train station for about 3 euro - most, if not all trains stop at the airport. It is also a close walk to the bus station (if you need to get to certain destinations that are serviced by bus). The hotel is a member of Leading Hotels of the World and that designation is very well earned. This hotel is not cheap - in fact, Switzerland is quite expensive in general, but I consider that this is money well spent.

I was booked in this hotel through work, and really enjoyed my stay. It is not cheap, but you feel why it has 5 stars.. Service is friendly and personal, from the moment you arrive to the moment you walk out the door again. The room was not very large but beautiful, comfortable and fully equipped. For non German or French speakers like myself it would be nice to have 1 or 2 english entertainment channels (as all shows are dubbed) but that is honestly all I could think of as a point to improve!
