What our customers say
"A pleasant surprise!"
After an absence of 30 years, I retuned to this hotel and was very pleasantly surprised. The interior decorations and general look of the hotel was very pleasing and well thought out. The breakfast was expensive, but had many good things to eat and the coffee was excellent. The staff in the restaurant was very professional and the food was good. The little treats from the kitchen were delicious, like caramel chocolates and fruit bonbons.
We had a very pleasant stay. We felt pampered and enjoyed the view from our room on the lake and the mont blanc.
"Excellent stay in a wonderful environment "
We had a great time in La Mainaz. Great starting point to explore the area. Wonderful view over lake of Geneva and Mont Blanc. Wonderful and very friendly staff at the hotel. Gorgeous food and very flexible ‘cuisine’ for vegetarians. We enjoyed our stay a lot.
"Very nice and helpful staff"
At check in the staff was very friendly and helped to arrange an early check. As well we had a nice conversation and get very useful tips for our short trip to Geneva.
"Overall great experience "
We liked the equipment, which was original and very stylish. The view from our room was marvellous. All details are thought through in the hotel, great. And on the top we could charge our electric car. What we missed was fresh vegetables served for breakfast, also more vegan options, e.g. Vegan spreads. I would also welcome more electric outlets in the room.
Very romantic, nestled among the trees and overlooking the valley leading to Lac Leman. Views of the lake and the French Alps behind were breathtaking. Although Montblanc was covered with clouds nature still gave us a wonderful display of lightening behind the clouds as a storm approached. Dinner was fabulous and so was the wine list. The service was special. The server appeared stretched to cover all the tables until an assistant arrived. I was pleasantly surprised to find some very special wines (Grand Crus) at reasonable prices. We had to leave early to catch a flight out of Geneve so we missed breakfast. We’ll come back to try this as well. We love the squirrel pillows, where can we buy them? You emblazoned in our memories forever. Thanks.
Friendly staff and nicely designed Hotel. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated in style. Good breakfast and gorgeous view. We highly recommend the Hotel. The restaurant however we didn’t rate as highly.
