Stayed for one week so able to review more comprehensively than the normal 2-3 night stay.
Hotel is an easy drive from Geneva airport and wonderfully situated for access to all the lakeside towns and both the Swiss and French Alps.
Car park entrance and exit are a little difficult to negotiate but it's well lit and maintained. Hotel parking charges are a particular irritation to me, why aren't they included in room rate ? However reception did offer a €55 weekly ticket which represents a useful saving on the €12 daily fee.
Check in (and out) was efficient and friendly.
Our room on the 6th floor was immaculate with outstanding views from the balcony. Also afforded us access to the Executive Lounge which offers a comfortable area inside and huge outdoor terrace, with coffee and soft drinks available all day and evening snacks and alcoholic drinks provided from 6.00pm. The only downside is that the lounge is often unstaffed and on Tuesday night the entire lounge was hijacked and 'looted' by a group of guests, many who were admitted to the lounge by colleagues as they clearly did not have authorised access.
Breakfast was included with our room and was extensive in selection and well presented, however the 'hot' breakfast components varied every day from, at best, warm and at worst, cold. The continental selection was very good with interesting local cheeses, cold meats, fruit, yoghurts and pastries.
Many local restaurants are within easy walking distance and varied in selection ( we used a different one each night guided by Trip Advisor reviews). On our last evening we ate in the hotels Riva restaurant. Food was well cooked and presented, but was approx 50% more expensive than similar quality meals in town. Hotel overheads ?
Also have to mention the Housekeeping dept which is exceptional, maintaining extremely high standards of cleanliness, even the windows, so often missed.
Overall this was a very enjoyable and satisfying stay. And we would love to return.
