“If someone pays if for you, go!”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

I'm not sure I'd ever pay their rates, but the place is nice, people were quite friendly and I loved the food! Swimming pools looked lovely and my colleagues really enjoyed it. It is nice place to stay for two nights, after third night it must be boring. What I didn't like about this hotel was missing free wifi.

We stayed there for two nights to do some wellness. The first room we got was horrible, like in a hospital. The second room was ok, but poor for ****+ and so was the bathroom. The TV was rather small and too far away from bed and too low in volume (we were on maximum) - the entertainment system was with rather old movies and horribly overpriced! No free wifi. Minibar was only with water and beer, very small choice.
The restaurant was generally good in quality, but way too overpriced for the size of the portions.
Breakfast buffet was okay, but poor for a ****+ (again).
Service was good and quick, but rather formal (I guess you could expect that from an overpriced, overrated hotel)
Generally: overpriced and does not deserve the ****+. Especially that the wellness does not belong to the hotel (hotel wellness is just one pool indoor and one outdoor)

I spent there 1 night during the honeymoon with my wife and we really enjoyed the stay: nice room (we got upgraded to one in the tower), very friendly people. Pretty good deal including dinner for 2 through smartbox.ch, this way price is ok.

Hotel building is very nice and located about 15 mins walk from yverdon. The food is good but very expensive my evening meal cost £80 just for me. The heated pool is outside and really hot but there were lots of mosquitos around the pool. The hotel has free wifi but is only available at the business centre which is below the bar and has a range of about 10 metres. The only way to get wifi in your room is to pay for it. The last time i stayed at this hotel wifi was free in your room, for business users wifi is essential and i think it should be included in the price of the room. The room safe is tiny, approx 150mm wide, so again if you have a laptop, it wont fit inside. The room also does not have any ironing facilities.

Stayed here with colleagues on a business trip for two nights. Upon arrival, Claudia, working reception, was very welcoming and pleasant. She asked us about our journey and our travel experience. We were also pleased to learn about the natural thermal baths adjoined to the hotel.

I found the staff, especially Claudia, very considerate, helpful, and welcoming. On our first night after arriving late, we were dying of hunger and didn’t feel like crawling into the small town. The kitchen and dining in the hotel closed at 2100, but it was only 2130. Claudia called the chef and extended the kitchen for us to eat. We had a light meal and were appreciative of the extra effort provided by the staff to cater for us three. The food was good, high quality, and quickly delivered.

Overall I was impressed with the hotel and more with our customer service experience by each of the hotel staff. The rooms were large, clean, and of a modern standard. Each room had a free mini bar (two waters and two beers), but did not have free WiFi (in the rooms), which I found surprising. The breakfast was average, the quality of the breakfast food could be improved some. I did, however, appreciate the early breakfast start time of 630.

One of the best parts of the hotel is the direct access to the Thermal Spas (heated pools, saunas, steam rooms, etc.). We enjoyed this every evening after our meetings, which quickly washed away the stress and strains of the day.

I would recommend this hotel to other travellers, mainly business travellers due to the price, and would stay again.

Business Hotel in historical building. Very nice and with charme. The hotel has a direct access to the thermal spa. Hot water with sauna is very comfortable for relaxing after a business day. The hotel is very proper. The rooms are big enough with all comfort for this kind of hotel. Parking place free. Breakfast is a bit poor, but in a really nice and big room with tradition. Service is excellent and I will stay the next time once again in this hotel!

I stayed in this hotel for a week (business) and I must admit I loved it!
The room was big, light and clean. Among the best rooms I stayed in.

The restaurant is very good and the premises in general are convenient. We had coffee breaks organized and both the drinks and the food provided were amazing ("chaussons aux pommes" and "pains au chocolat" are my favorites!), fruits were also there.

Personally I was a bit surprised that the "Grand Hotel des Bains" (stressing "BAINS") didn't include access to the thermal bath in the room price. However, since it was a business stay, it might be because of the agreement we had with the hotel. Something you might wanna check just to avoid surprises.

Going to the bath is really convenient as there is a direct access (some kind of windowed tunnel connection). You may go there in your swimsuit!

The hotel is located at the end of the city (quiet far from the center). However, make sure you visit Yverdon (buses stop in front of the hotel). There are nice pedestrian only streets and the lake to enjoy.
