We stayed here for the final night of our holiday before flying back from Geneva next day. Getting to the hotel was problematic as lots of roads were blocked off for the Triathlon which we had not known about, but we were able to park by the hotel, get checked in (very pleasant staff on reception) then move the car to the nearby underground carpark.
We were delighted to find that not only did the room have the requested lake view, it had a whopping great terrace too! As the weather was superb, it was lovely to be able to sit out there and view the goings on for the Triathlon and then view the race a bit the next morning. We ate at the adjoining restaurant, Le Pirate, which was very good (the logo makes you think it’s going to be naff, but it wasn’t) then had a couple of drinks at the bar next door. Breakfast the next day was OK – the staff were working hard to keep everything topped up and the room was a bit squashed, but it was fine. I would recommend this place for the location more than anything, it was comfortable enough but no frills and the bathroom was tiny. Our flight wasn’t until the evening, so we sat on a shady bench at St Prex down the road which seems a charming little place with more wonderful views.
