Great little town, great little hotel in a great location. This newly renovated hotel in the middle of this medieval town has beautiful rooms, but no heating (except a little plug in deal!), no self-closing/locking front doors, generous sized bathroom with no room for toiletries, good sized bath tub but no splash guard, no grab bar and no block-out curtain at the window. The designer of the place didn't think the job thru! The restaurant served great, but minimal quantity food at the usual high Swiss prices!

we came to avenches to admire the remains of the ancient roman city of aventicum. la couronne was one of three hotels to choose from, all virtually around the same price, and not cheap. the hotel is about exactly in the middle of the main road, right next to the sweet town square and the adjacent 11th century church. on saturday there was a tiny market consisting of four (4) stalls: bread, cheese, meat & vegetables on the square. the huge amphitheater & the museum - really fascinating, with a lovely & enthousiastic archaeologist at the desk - are a stone's throw, the other ancient ruins in walking distance. the trilingual people at the hotel were very friendly and it's in a cute, comfy & relaxed atmosphere. the functional room at la couronne was huge, but could perhaps do with a new carpet & wallpaper. otherwise very clean (the bathroom too), with a view of the main street and a really comfy double-bed. breakfast was small but lovely with croissants, swiss muesli, cheese etc. but the real surprise was the restaurant (again, not cheap at all) which appears to be listed in the guide-michelin and after dining there twice we could see why. the restaurant is divided into two parts (yes 2). the front part (from the street, with a little terrace) is the brasserie, somewhat less pricey than the 'restaurant' in the back. menus looked similar, so we chose the brasserie the first night and thought we were sitting at the wrong table. the cook(s) is a first class chef, the fresh food and service are excellent, with attention to detail and the wine too (try the local reds from Vully) was quite spectacular. we ate in the restaurant the next day, two tables further on, and although it was expensive, we would definitely go back. all in all, nice & quiet hotel (like the town) with a fantastic restaurant.

Room Tip: ask for a room with view of the main street, I think they're larger

The location is perfect for exploring the historical town of Avenches and it was really a pleasure to stay here. The staff were warm and helpful at advising us of the towns historical features. The room we had was spacious and bright with a wonderful view. We ate the most delicious dinner in the restaurant and had some excellent champagne and wine. I would highly recommend a stay here and definitely have dinner at least once in the restaurant!
