“Great views of the lake and mountains, but directly beside noisy motorway”
Reviewed August 25, 2008

We wanted to try a different hotel on lake Geneva for a weekend break this year, having in the past always stayed in Lausanne and Geneva.

The Hotel website promised tranquility and great views from all the rooms. Sadly the reality was very different. The Hotel is enclosed by a raised motorway on two sides and the rooms at the back and the side suffer from the associated noise 24/7.

The rooms are clean, with high quality bedlinen, but very basic furniture with linoleum floors and a very sterile bathroom.

Breakfast is great, both in terms of views from the breakfast area and the food.

In summary I would say that this Hotel is more of a Motel, unless you book the top of the range rooms directly facing the lakefront.

  • Liked — the breakfast was great
  • Disliked — the location directly by the motorway spoiled everything
  • Stayed August 2008, traveled as a couple
