Smallish but clean and comfortable room with lake view and small balcony. Excellent air conditioning, efficient and nearly silent! Good buffet breakfast. Ideally placed for our pick up point, the Tourist Information Centre, which was just round the corner. No bad points as such. Would have liked a proper shower over the bath rather than the hand held one that could only be used whilst sitting in the bath (no shower curtain). Would also have like coffee making facitlies in the bedroom
A nice location with a balcony overlooking the lake. Good breakfast. The room itself was comfortable and adequately appointed. The internet connection worked. On arrival, it is difficult to park for unloading bags. The english speaking staff were very helpful, but some spoke no english at all. The bathroom and toilet are below an acceptable modern standard.
propietor rmost helpful and very friendly well situated position,b/fst ok.clean ,front desk excelent querky tedybears
Very friendly, helpful staff. Great location, and nice toiletries.
Well located - right on Lake Geneva and close to amenities. The room was very small - not much "extra" space.
Nice room with the sea view, friendly staff, private garage, restaurants nearby.
Nice view on the lake. There was the matter of view on the lake (our room had a bit of a view from the side) but it was quickly solved with a front room. It wasn't busy in the hotel and the room did not smell very nice. The doors were painted in a weird colour, all together not what we expected.
Nice, comfortable room breakfast quite poor, coffee not drinkable
Friendly clean modest hotel. Good value and reasonably priced. Excellent location No
Hotel was in excellent location for bus from Annecy and for boat across to Switzerland. Fronts onto lake and in middle of the town. Staff very polite and helpful. Room very comfortable.
great location, many possibilities for outdoor activities (tennis, swimming in lake & pool, jogging, walking on the lake shore), helpful staff, nice food
We were pleasantly surprised by how nice this hotel was. Its location on the beach was extremely pleasant and it had a superb adjoining restaurant. To be highly recommended. We hope to stay there again.
Swimming pool, lakeside restaurant
The location was great. In front of lake Leman and next to the Alps. Best of both worlds.
We like food but it could be changed time to time. We didn't like that serve priority was given the Arabs.
The location is perfect !!! Also the comfort is at the expected level :-))) ! The price for the breakfast is outrageous !!! 25 eur is too much since we had to pay also for our kids ( 9 and 12 years old !!!!! ) .
I booked the hotel from booking.com website but in hotel we paid 150 Euro more for kid . I had written two kids in comment section. and they had not any response.
An excellent hotel in a lovely town. ( we go in winter time)
The hotel was well located, staff were attentive and helpful and the Riva restaurant provided a pleasant setting for an evening meal, albeit it should be marketted better to attract more guests to eat there. It was difficult to get a drink on the terrace!
location The standard of the room was not good. The room smelled damp during our entire stay (2 nights) and the bath tub / shower was dirty upon arrival. The "double" bed I booked was in fact 2 single beds which divided in the night middle leaving a huge gap in the middle. Given that we only had one "double" duvet this was neither comfortable or practical. The balcony light flickered the entire night until we found the switch to turn it off. The room rate I got from Booking.com was good (130 Euro per night) but upon arrival I was immediately asked if I wanted an upgrade to a lake facing room for 75 Euro per night. Which I refused as it was dark anyway. I have stayed at Hilton before but would think twice about booking a Hilton again.
The room was large and very comfortable, with modern ,new furnishings....also the breakfast was good,and the position on The Lake. the hotel had no bikes to hire for guests, and had trouble finding a company that would rent them to us, when we walked into the town nearby we found one from asking the tourist information, and it was right in the center.....!
Badly lit room with bad aspect and bad water pressure. Very heavy charge for internet. Had to walk outside in rain to get to restaurant.
Great views of the lake. Excellent restaurant with modern French cuisine. Choose an executive room if you can. The free access spa area is too small for the size of the hotel, therefore a little too crowded
breakfast was nice and rich. there were many small objects everywhere. it was disturbing because everywhere was full of ornaments, pictures and accessories. the room was not sufficiently soundproof. I heard the snoring neighbors next door and upstairs. and the room was not clean enough.
Hotel staff, Place of hotel, ambient
really cosy hotel -
Very accomodating staff with exceptional food and service
I liked the general ambience of the hotel, unlike more modern ones. The breakfast was excellent. Parking was reasonable as well.
The charm of the decoration, the professionalism and the warmth of the entire staff. This is a big surprise as France is for several years now losing the hospitality touch. Hard to find anything wrong as as soon you mentionned they will fix it. I booked 1 night and I extend another one as I was captured by the mood of the location.
I liked Les Cygnes because all the staff were friendly and helpful and the comfortable atmosphere and fasinatingly detailed decor succeded in making a very homely atmosphere. Possibly lack of an elevator to take suitcases up. Staff offered instead.
The building is an amazing one, very charming like an other age castle.... And the view on the Leman lake!!!!!!! Moreover, the staff is perfect, nice and smiling, trying to do everything to help us (luggage, tourism informations, food choice, facilities...). I've never found an hotel like this one, cheap but with everything like a palace. They're very professional and i like it. I'll go back soon. No.
A pleasant waterside location with excellent views across Lake Geneva Hotel rooms & public spaces had far too much tasteless frippery which was an encumberance particularly in smallish rooms
The friendliness of the staff and the tranquil environment. The position of the hotel next to the lake with great views.
Virtually everything about it was excellent. Really well run. The taller of the 2 head waiters was a bit grumpy. "Threw the toys out of the bath" when we requested a change of table! The other head waiter was really nice.
The beutifull gardens and setting. Food and service was tirst class and the staff could not have been better. Will be returning next year
the layout of the hotel is magnificent. the gardens and the external spaces are very pleasant. the dinner was tasty, especially the "fillet de beuf" which was extraordinary. breakfast as well was wonderful with real french croissants. moreover they upgraded our room! to conclude, it was just a lovely getaway.
Relaxing setting, fine views, excellent food and facilities. A well run hotel. Restaurant prices for dinner are inhibitive. Perhaps better choices for vegetarian
good atmosphere in the hotel, friendly staff the hotele is a bit outdated, maybe this is also the charm of the hotel
A great place to go and go back to.
a full 10 points there was no wifi on the hotel premises, as indicated on booking.com - so i really had relax (there is a business center with free internet though)
It's still retains its old classic furniture and smell. Some renovation is done to it. The staff are super super friendly, always smiling, willing to help, prices are also great. Going to it is also a scenic drive. It is built on its original natural way. The land has not been flattened out. Their breakfast is homemade and yummy. The lift is small. If you have a couple of bags or large bags you will need a couple of trips to get to your room.
A very pleasant "old world" style of hotel. Nice gardens and an even nicer restaurant. Staying here is very civilized without going over the top. However, for some people the old fashion qualities may be a turn off. Having a small toilet separate from the bathroom and entered into directly from the bedroom was a negative point.
Hotel staff were excellent, all very pleasant and helpful. Gourmet dinner was superb although a little on the expensive side. Parking was a joy - free and within 5 metres of our room location. A charming hotel with lots of character. A pleasant change to the modern hotel chains. Although Free Wifi was available in Public Areas (a big plus); it would be nice to also have it in the room too.
The room was a good size and well maintained. It has a lovely veranda, althought the view was of the tennis courts of the adjacent club. The restaurant is excellent, with 3 set menus at varying price as well as a la carte. The wine list was expensive, but no more than you would imagine from a high class restaurant. The staff in thre restaurant were very friendly and attentive. The room rates varied considerably when I booked - at the rate I paid this was reasonable value. I booked the hotel because I needed to be in the area the next day and we wanted a celebration dinner. The dinner lived up to expectation, but the hotel probably not. If I am in the region again, I would try a different hotel. The room was very noisy - the walls were paper thin and we could hear every conversation and clickof light switches. Also the bottle of water left in the room - without any accompaning note - cost 6 Euro. Beware of drinks in the bar - Gin and tonic = 12 Euro.
Location was great right in the centre of the town and close to the lake A little "tired" could do with an overhaul and the car park was very difficult to find
Breakfast small and cramped room.
Friendly staff, excellent position, quite cheap
The staff were really friendly and were very helpful over arranging for my late arrival. Clearer sign posting to the car park would be useful - I had stayed there before so knew how to get in, but new patrons might find it difficult to find.
location in the center of Evian near the springs and on the pedestrian area it could be useful the frige or minibar in the room (specially in summer time) Early in the morning ( from 6.00) very noisy, inspite of the pedestrian area. Services cars stoped in front of the hotel
very good location, nice rooms, very clean no internet connection during my stay
It was qiet specially at night The air conditioning was not working in any of the 3 rooms and we arrived tired and thirsty. My mother has a few medical conditions and there was not water or air conditioning the first night. We phoned reception but no one answered. The 2nd night my mother was given a fan.
Nice staff, good breakfast, central location
Location! Walks on the lake front, many restaurants nearby, beautiful location. Lovely breakfast room and food. Difficulty in finding the parking!
THe hotel is good value, and close to Switzerland. We stayed 2 nights with 2 children in the "family room". However, the room is extremely small with no option but to go to bed at the same time as the children...
Charming small hotel designed in old style, calm and clean. Good breakfast. Very friendly helpful staff.
Good quality reasonably priced hotel in the centre of Evian. The owners were very friendly and very helpful. They also spoke excellent English which helps. Only negative I can think of is that the hotel has no Car Parking, hence the local Car Parks have to be used, although this really is no big deal.
Really nice owner and family, comfortable, centrally located hotel. Good value nothing
The staff were very helpful and welcoming. The room was comfortable, with individuality lacking in the large chains.
This is an absolute gem of a hotel and could be rated much higher. We were so pleased we stayed longer. The room was gorgeous and the staff were super fantastic. We loved it. Just be sure to check your directions if driving and avoid the tricky one-way streets by knowing where to park.
Only 5mins walk to the lake and boats to Lausanne, Good restaurants nearby. Quiet hotel, comfortable beds, charming staff. Excellent breakfast and pleasant music in the breakfast room
location and staff
Very simple but stylish, individually decorated rooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. Central location
The location. It was comfortable and the staff were helpful and friendly. We would stay there again.
Central location, comfortable room Difficult to access as in pedestrian area
The feeling of luxury and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff One of the 3 restaurants the Verandah was extremely disappointing for an evening meal. The food was basic and unappetising and the ambience was more like a zoo canteen than the restaurant in a 5* hotel.
The hotel style & location Breakfast
This is a very beautiful hotel with a great view on the lake. There was too much noise around the hotel during the day, from lawn mowers, etc., This is not what you like and expect from a hotel in the hills. Children can stay free in this hotel, and there are many families with many children. Therefore the hotel is hardly suitable for adult couples who wish to spend a romantic weekend.In fact, adult couples pay relatively much to compensate for the free stay of all these children. I would recommend this hotel only for families with children.
Hotel is beautiful and the view is amazing. Staff do not speak english, problems with accepting credit cards. Staff make too many mistakes and treat you like you owe them!!!!! Not the attitute of 5 star hotel at all.
Exceptional site, wonderful landscape, refined services excellent cuisine specially restaurant Edouard VII. Too expensive for middle class people who appreciates this kind of hotels.Ma
Park, garden and Swimming pool. The hours of meals should be more extended and the selection of food at bar could be wider. On Sunday the Gastronomic restaurant should be open.
i like the staff of hotel nothing
We loved everything about the hotel Ermitage. The staff were exceptional.
It was very nice hotel with excellent service. Spa is very clean and with a big swimming pool. We appricated a lot that the children are welcome to this hotel. The breakfast was delicious! The price for massage is quite high!
excellent,excellent,excellent! perfect!! the room had new decoration smell
Superb location, with varied amenaties, very efficient and friendly staff. Ideally situated for Lake Leman and the town of Evian and plenty of activities to pursue in all weather conditions. The rooms were dated, but are being 100% refurbished later this year.
Nicely renovated, with friendly staff and lovely rooms. Although we only stayed one night, we intend to come back soon
I like the friendly service and hopsitality.The Casion was excellent
nice few, good food, friendly people one can feel the bedsprings, very uncomfortable beds, tiny rooms and bathrooms
The beautiful location of the hotel. All staff were very friendly and attentive. The room was of a good size and with a balcony. The dinner menu included in the price was good. Value for money was excellent. Considering the price only minor things: there is not much to choose about the included dinner menu; we felt some springs in the matress; there was no shower curtain; and we could hear some noise from the adjacent room.
The view Very old;small room;should not be included in the list of relais silence
Lovely friendly hotel in a beautiful location. Great views over the mountains and good food served in the restaurant for dinner.
I liked the hotel very much. I had breathtaking view from my balcony. And I liked their hospitality. Also I enjoyed using hot tub. By the way, it was not mentioned on the web that this service is not included. ( The daily cost for using hummam and hot tub is eight euros. The gym is for free, though. There was no coffee maker and fridge in the room. And, if you don't rent a car, you can only get their by taxi for 25euro. And the nearest supermarket (petit casino) was 40 min on foot. And be aware, that they don't speak English in that hotel.
Nice area, quite. Not impressed by the food, 3 pieces of melted cheese and ham on french bread is not my idea of a gourmet dinner, but that is of course my (biased) opinion.
The location is beautiful, the staff are nice. The size of the room and quality of bathroom were great. The hallways were a little dark, crowded and dirty. Quite dusty in parts of the room.
Room, location, staff, food Elevator, please...
Nice and pleasant country hotel. Very nice food. Not much english spoke, but this wasn't a problem
Service was excellent, very courteous staff and over great experience Highly recommend
Excellent Family Hotel
atmosphere of a family hotel, regional food served the room equipement is not very modern
