“Nice Hotel in the Outskirts - need a car!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Check out the gardens they are really nice!

Great place at reasonable price (by swiss standards) However they have a dedicated Fitness room that only has 2 functioning pieces of equipment. When I questioned them about a non working treadmill in the room 8 weeks ago they just removed and said they would replace but have not. It is now Jan 7th 2013 and still no new equipment. For a nice hotel with a dedicated fitness room they need to provide more than a Bike and a rowing machine

Efficient and helpful service especially at the reception desk. If you have a car and do not want to stay in Lausanne center overnight, this is a good place to stay. Great value for money. A short advice: use a car navigation system to find the hotel - this is not very easy to find without.

We stayed at this hotel for one night during a Cosmos tour. The room was exceptionally clean and spacious. We had two beds sharing a common headboard, a nice flat screen TV, mini bar, and a two-part bathroom (toilet had its own room). Although we had to ask twice for a new roll of toilet paper due to a partial roll there when we checked in, the frustration on the front desk clerk's face when we had to ask the second time let us know he was actually concerned about our stay. The view from the "back yard" was beautiful- looking out across Lausanne toward some mountains.

Breakfast consisted of eggs, bacon, sausage, cereals, assorted breads, yogurt, coffee, tea, and juices.

To get into town we had to take a short walk to a bus stop. The bus was very convenient and dropped us off downtown near a variety of restaurants.

Very good quality/price rate.
If you have been to one Novotel you have seen them all and you know what to expect.
We spent three nights at the hotel and it was very good. By Swiss standards the price was very reasonable. The room was a good size, clean and very comfortable. Well located on the highway, just outside Lausanne.

Situated in the outskirts of Lausanne, it is a perfect hotel for business travellers, especially if you are in your way though. Easy to find, large parking in front of the hotel. Usual Novotel quality of rooms (good), an unusually big choice in the restaurant menu, food of good quality.
