Le Bourg 7 is situated in a quaint old town next to Lausanne. The hotel occupies a group of buildings close to the Lake. In the evening, It is pleasant to walk a block to the lake front where there are restaurants and creperies and benches to sit and watch the lights of France across the water. There is a parking lot close to the hotel, and easy highway access. The rooms are beautifully decorated in a modern designer chic style. Our rooms were rather small, but well appointed. There is free internet. Breakfast consists of yoghurts, bread and jams. There were a selection of cereals, but they consisted of two chocolaty kids cereals and cornflakes. A muesli would have been nice. Fresh fruit was available for an extra charge. Breakfast service was a little slow at times and it would probably be easier if the coffee was served in pots as requesting another cup of tea or coffee at breakfast time is tedious. The staff are extremely pleasant, and speak excellent English. Unfortunately, in summer the church bells are loud and caused us sleepless nights. As there is no A/C, we kept the windows open at night. The church next door rings bells to mark every quarter hour. One bell= quarter past, two bells = half past etc. On the hour it rings four times to mark the hour, plus bells to mark the actual hour. Therefore, midnight is four bells closely followed by twelve bells! We tried closing the windows, and the sound is muted, but then we melted! The other problem was that in both of our rooms the safes were not functioning. As the hotel leaves the exterior doors open during the day, and our rooms windows were opened for air flow, we did not feel our rooms were as secure we would have liked. There are no chains on the room doors either. I'm sure Lurty is a pretty low crime area, but security is important to travellers, especially those with families. This is a gem of a hotel, and it is obvious that the owners have spent considerable time and effort on the decoration and equiping of the rooms, but the lack of sleep makes me hestitate to give an unreserved recommendation. Visit in cooler months, or with ear plugs!

As for the saves its a shame you didnt bring this to our attention as it was surely the batteries and we would have been more than happy to fix this for you. We also have fans for all of our rooms in the very hot weather witch for us is a couple of weeks a year in Lutry.
Unfortunately for the church bells it comes with our village location and although it is part of the charm it can be a nuisance if you are a light sleeper. We do have earplugs available.
We do hope that we can welcome you again in the winter under cooler conditions!
thank you again for your comments
