“18th century next to 21st”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

Geneva is not very friendly to drivers and at the same time you can't walk it for business or pleasure. Last minute decision and we land there with no hotel reservation. At the hotel desk at the airport my son asked for a swimming pool. Geneva doesn't have many places with pools. Manager at the desk asked us, - how about Chateau? 10 min drive to the center, nice views and best restaurant in Geneva.

Best deal I had in Geneva. For CHF275 we had two floor suite with fireplace. The building is historic but has all modern amenities. Plus free parking,view of the vineyard in the window, garden and scenery of the mountain valley as far as you can see.

Special feature is restaurant. Apparently the owner of the place is one of the best chefs in Switzerland. EVERY evening he personally is in the kitchen. Dinners are reservation only and they are full with visitors from town. We were given special treatment, as there were no tables we got VIP room in the cellar for free. And french fixed menu dinner is really good. Really.

And the last but not the least. Breakfasts. We asked first day for the menu and were told that there is no such thing. Not because there is a great selection of cheeses, sausages and other stuff on the buffet display. The principle is simple, - tell us what you want and how you want it and we make it. Probably you can do it if you love it and there are 10+ rooms in your hotel. So I recomment you make a reservation beforehand and ask for the room on the top.

Hotel price is reasonable but Swiss taxes are not. There is something called "Geneve Tourisme Package" and it is CHF333 plus CHF4 per person "Taxe de sejour". So my bill for CHF550 for 2 nights got these extras (I got an impression that it is one off, not per night). CHF20 per room (not per person) for breakfast was a nice surprise.

Stayed here for one night in March 2014. Everything was perfect, from the very welcoming staff to the large cozy room. We felt very comfortable overall. One very minor drawback is the bathroom, which has a pretty small tub, and some of the amenities begin to show their age. Dinner at the restaurant is delicious and definitely worth the splurge.

Stayed here a few days for work. Wonderful place. There are sun beds outside, the courtyard is cool and always people around to serve you. It's a tiny little hotel with a fantastic restaurant although expensive $210-290 for a 7 course menu.

Pros:
Overall this is a beautiful hotel, the rooms and bathrooms are a good size, amenities are fabulous, the air conditioning is effective and quiet (!),very clean, the breakfast buffet is excellent, and the views are absolutely wonderful – it is definitely a quaint oasis on the outskirts of Geneva. Their restaurant is also a 3-star Michelin (but note that it is very expensive and you should make a reservation prior to arrival).

Cons:
1) Hotel restaurant is closed on Sundays and Mondays - this is not unusual in Geneva but this also means no room service, nothing, which can be an issue if you are arriving after a long day/s of travel ...unless you have a car ....
2) and, you need a car if you are planning on staying here for more than a one night stop-over...getting around from this hotel is not easy, regional train station is not close by, you can get a taxi but with traffic in Geneva expect to pay around 50 - 60 CHF each way, I seem to recall that it cost us about 40 CHF to get to the main train station in Geneva at 6:00 a.m. The hotel has no shuttle service/driver service of any kind....which is quite ok, but they might want to consider offering guests with no car at least a lift to their sister restaurant "down the hill", at minimum when their own restaurant and kitchen is closed.
3) Welcome and service is not as good as other five-star hotels in Geneva and definitely not what you expect from a smaller and Relais Chateau hotel. We had a very cool reception which unfortunately only got cooler after we complained about being misinformed about what time their sister restaurant started serving for the evening meal. This likely wouldn’t have been an issue at all if we’d had a car and not had to walk down/up the hill in sweltering heat after long travel ...and if the first response to our complaint upon our return to the hotel wasn’t “you must have misunderstood”. Note that we are first language French speaking ...okay not the same accent but I think we can understand whether a restaurant is serving or not ...specially that we specifically asked before we set out on foot (and yes, they knew we were on foot). To their credit however, when we asked to speak to the manager on-duty she was very nice and quickly arranged for us to have cold meat/cheese/salad plate – which was fantastic and on-the-house. But overall we couldn’t shake the feeling that we were now “problem” clients.

In the end I would still refer the hotel as it is a beautiful location and our room was very nice – but I would caution to take note of our comments ...we should have taken heed of a previous reviewer’s recommendation to have a car instead of relying on the hotel’s website which implies that it is easy to get to Geneva – yes easy if taking a taxi but slightly expensive.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Rhone

My wife and I recently stayed one night at the Domaine de Chateauvieux before departing for home from the Geneva airport. The hotel is a Relais et Chateaux property and is accordingly very expensive. The building was originally part of the medieval Chateau de Penney. We booked our stay at the last minute; and so, we did not have the hotel's best view out onto their own vineyard. However, our room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was modern. The shower was in the tub, commonplace in Europe. But, because the tub was so narrow and slippery, this seemed like 'an accident waiting to happen'. The A/C was not central, nor was there a window unit. It was plumbed into the sink and made a lot of noise when the compressor came on. Closing the bathroom door was the solution to this odd problem. We enjoyed good service for our hotel needs but distinctly poor service at the restaurant, which is overpriced even by Swiss standards.

There is a really excellent facility in 'Suite'. The deco of room is outstanding. We all like the table and sofa in the room that have nice quality. Specially, There are two chairs in the room. I like one of it put on second floor that is comfortable. I think the only problem is you need find the way to hotel if you take train from Stingy.
