having stayed at other Novotels i was not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. The hotel staff was very friendly and accomodating to my needs. There was a children's play area with video games, chairs and other activities.
Outside there is a nice sitting area looking out towards the lake and mountains. They have a Swiss alpine prairie as part of the garden which i found quite nice. There is also an outdoor pool that was clean and pleasant.
The rooms are your typical Novotel rooms, however the Swiss efficiency is noticeable here. The room was spotless.
Breakfast was a nice buffet which the whole family enjoyed.
This hotel is a good value if you have a car. it's not close to the lake but if you have a car it's easily accessible and you get all the benefits mentioned above. or you could stay on the lake and pay 4 times as much.
