This was our third visit to the Dahu - but the first time in Summer and the first time with children - age 7 and 5.The food is still as wonderful as before. Breakfasts really have everything and the food at dinner is really superb. There is no choice but that means the food that is served is carefully chosen, often using local ingredients, and is of a high quality. The waitresses are charming and helpful. Our family room was very comfortable, with good quality pillows and duvets ( which I am fussy about!). I was glad of the balcony over the valley - It is worth paying the extra for that. I see another reviewer said the "spa area is dated". The inside pool area and sauna etc could not really be called a spa - and it is perhaps a little dated but absolutely fine for a family hotel of this type. The outside pool is absolutely lovely.
Evening child care arrangements- effectively a free nanny service - was a great success, allowing us to eat without the children most evenings, knowing they were nearby, safe and happy. The children ate earlier and children's food was also excellent.
This hotel is very good value in the summer, more expensive in the winter but still worth it. It appears to cater primarily for French families- we were the only Britsh family staying at that time - and the menus etc are all in French, which I like. I have not stayed in many French hotels but Le Dahu is of a higher quality than typical British 'family hotels'.
We have tried the Esprit/ Warner family holidays, Crieff Hydro and Five star hotels with the children, but I prefer Le Dahu to them all.
If taking taxi from Geneva, book taxi through the hotel in advance. it is much cheaper than an airport taxi.
We spent the days walking - easily 'do-able' with kids because of the chairs/cable cars but watch out for the many bikes!
We hope to return to Le Dahu in winter and summer.
