Hotel d'Angleterre in Geneva is a perfect small luxury hotel, in a great location. To walk along the Lake we just had to cross the road, and we were also in walking distance from the old city. Our welcome in the hotel could not have been friendlier. Check-in was very efficient, and very soon we were in our lovely room (we had a "deluxe" room). Beautiful decoration: pale wooden floor, off-white furniture and doors, fabric wall coverings with a red décor, beautiful curtains. Very comfortable bed, large television with many channels, walk-in closet. Large bathroom, with (of course) bathrobes and slippers, and with Penhaligon toiletries. Very good individually controlled airconditioning. Fresh fruit, mineral water, sweets, and lots of individually wrapped chocolates (mmmm!). But best of all was the view of Lake Geneva, right in front of the famous water-jet, and with the Mont Blanc in the background. (Later in the evening we saw the sunset on Mont Blanc, it was incredible!). Very good turn-up service in the evening. A very good breakfast the next morning.
The public areas in the hotel are beautifully furnished in a traditional way, always very comfortable. The staff is just wonderful, so friendly and effective. Do not think of those shallow professional smiles that disappear as soon as the customer has turned away. In this hotel the staff gives the impression that they really are happy to see you!!
We had dinner in the Windows restaurant, and we were very surprised that this restaurant does not (yet) have a Michelin Star. The food (including the presentation and the amuses), the wine list, and the service are all that even the most demanding guest can wish. (You may also want to read my separate review of this restaurant.)
We did not go to the Bar Lounge Leopard, and we did not use the fitness center. That will have to wait till next time: we will certainly be back in this perfect hotel!
