Practical location of this hotel, close to the highway, not far from either Geneva, Nyon or Divonne in France. It has a nice garden, a spacious terrace where food and drinks are served, some climbing and play stuff for kids, a beautiful view on the lake and the mountains and free parking (and free shuttle to the airport)
Our standard room was on the first floor and a tiny bit of a disappointment, because it was quite small. But it was clean, I liked the (fake?) wooden floor, the bathroom was efficient but no toiletries nor shower cap are provided except for the fixed soap dispenser.
The aircon works well. It switches off if one opens the window (very efficient :-)
We had breakfast outside at 8 o'clock in the morning. It was still relatively quiet (I think the families and their children come later) and we were welcomed with a friendly smile. The bread and croissants were fresh, the tea good, the espresso not so good (and only 1 machine = not enough = waiting), fruit salad that was awfully sweet and I think sweetener or sugar was added.
What I did NOT like is the fact that any outsider can enter the various hotel floors and have access to corridors and rooms. Nobody needs a room card to access the lift or the stairway.
We tried to have diner outside on the terrace but staff was overworked and did not pay us any attention.
We decided to drive to the next village, Commugny, and have some Italian food at the local pizzeria.
If you leave the hotel grounds/parking, turn left, at the end of the road (roundabout) make a right turn and drive all the way down towards Commugny. Pass the little village, but keep on the same road, the pizzeria is on the left with free parking in front.
There is a big shopping mall on the other side of the highway, "Chavannes Centre". You can take the car or walk there. I think it opens at 9 o'clock in the morning and in case you are interested, Manor restaurant offers breakfast for 6 Swiss francs (6 ingredients plus a hot drink of your choice).
Overall a pleasant stay. less
