“Don't eat, don't drink”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

On our stop to Italy we were forced to stay in this hotel because the neighboring budget hotel for only sleeping was full. Well, we thought then let's pay a bit more (..more than double) and have a meal and a drink so tomorrow we'll have a relaxed continuation of our journey... We should have taken a pizza like the people of the budget did. What makes hotels like these serve meals while there's only a microwave in the kitchen? To make things worse, the beer was straight out filthy, probably the pipes were not properly cleaned or something like that. There was only one waitress and she couldn't do much with our complaint letting us know that she absolutely knew nothing about the quality of beer... Big hotel chains like these could improve not by putting a impersonal welcome/remarks note on your pillow but by taking care of enough and qualified personnel to give their guests a decent welcome!

This hotel has undergone a fresh-up with the Mercure "business suite" upgrade. These rooms are tasteful and eye appealing, and happily we received a free upgrade to a pair of these rooms. There is a debate within the family as to whether these rooms are air conditioned or just ventilated with the fan unit. One web page says only public areas are airconditioned and another says the room are airconditioned. It was 32 degrees late afternoon in the room with the fan running high circulating the 32 degree air. Our room was not AC; another family member in adjacent room says her's was cooled. Opening the window made temperature bearable but the traffic sounds of the nearby autoroute made sleep quality poor. Toilet seat was partially detatched from WC; toilet paper dispenser was hanging limply so roll slid off; and higher level shelving above minibar you could write you name in the dust. Items reported to front desk upon check out were written down by duty manager with some surprise. Property has potential with some fine tuning of daily management. Location is great for visiting Geneva-only 15 minutes to the lakefront by auto. A great alternative to the SFr300+ per nite rooms that dominate the market. We will give them a second chance when back in the area.

This was my second visit to Gaillard, a small and pleasant French city quite close to Geneva. Last time, I stayed in a rather utlilitarian property: the Mercure was a pleasant upgrade. The Rhone river races behind the hotel: the walking trail is a few minutes away providing a tranquil and scenic escape from whatever business brings you to town.

While this is not a top luxery hotel, the friendly and helpful staff from check-in to the dining room, make one feel welcome. There is a nice assortment of newspapers in the lobby in several languages and a daily news sheet in four languages is printed as well. Free internet is available but with limited bandwith - internet telephony was not possible. You can pay for faster internet but I found this to be sufficient. The room and bathrooms were acceptable, the bed reasonably comfortable. The window opened - a plus not found in many of the better hotels.

The hotel grounds are nicely landscaped; eating outdoors with the local Savoie wines and views of the mountains was very pleasant. The company that brought me provided all meals at the Mercure, so I got to know the kitchen quite well and was impressed by the variety of the menu and the excellent preparation and freshness of the offerings. There was a pool as well which would have tempted me had I brought swimming trunks.

I could understand an overnight guest or someone stayng for two nights thinking this to be an average or worse hotel but staying for nearly a week, I found it to be relaxed, accomodating, and quite comfortable. Add the friendly and helpful staff and I have to move this up to very good.
