Sat outside this hotel on a few occasions when visiting Cully. Beautiful location. Relaxing atmosphere and pleasant staff. Had tapas and sandwich one evening which was very good. Not too pricey. Can't comment on hotel itself as stayed elsewhere.

We found this hotel by chance, without a prior booking. It is right on the lakeside, with a little park just in front of the hotel where we and the locals were able to enjoy a drink outside on a sunny evening. There is also a landing stage for the lake boats. The owner/receptionist was very welcoming, and offered us...

The appeal of this hotel clearly lies in its location. The rooms are rather basic and a bit antiquated, and the hotel has no elevator. But the location is outstanding! It is nicely situated on the shore of Lake Geneva with only a narrow strip of public park land separating it from the water. The park itself, shaded by a...

The location of the hotel and the view from our room was absolutely perfect! You're situated right on Lake Geneva and you can swim in the summer, walk along the promenade or walk up into the vineyards above you. It was a very memorable experience and I'd love to return someday. My only complaint would be the breakfast that is...

When my friend and I arrived at this hotel we were blown away by the location right on the shore of the lake! The lady who gave us our keys (she may well have been the owner) was brilliant. She spoke several languages (I was very impressed) and was very helpful. I was lucky enough to get a room with...

This was a nostalgic trip back to a village where I lived for several years. The rooms are pleasant if not luxurious, the restaurant provides excellent food and plenty of those delicious slightly petillant white wines to choose from, and the location on the Place d'armes is unbeatable, with the view of the lake and the mountains, the steep vineyard-clad...

I stayed in Cully a couple of years back at a hotel 100 metres up the hill, Auberge du Raisin, whilst there the restaurant was shut and they recommended "The Major", and yes the food was good. So on this trip as the Raisin was expensive and The Major was not so, I booked it. I can see why the...

We loved our one night here. Bernadette Messmer, the owner (with her husband) runs a traditional hotel which still had all the things you need (broadband, peace and quiet, good food, clean rooms, etc.). Location is a good as it can get. Service was very 'French' the nice end of abrupt you could say. All the locals came in to...

The Major Davel has an outstanding location in Cully, across a vast grassy area from the boat pier, in a low traffic area. Most guests staying in one of its few rooms will undoubtedly taking advantage of the room and board option, including continental breakfast and a full course dinner in its excellent restaurant, one of the better ones in...
