The hotel is really nice and cosy. Its completely different to chain hotels. The room was very spacious and bathroom was quite big. Breakfast was nice although only jam was served. Cheese or some other food should also be available.
Quaint, by American standards located in a lovely setting adjacent to Lake Lemond in the center of the South facing hillside covered in vinyards. In the summertime in high heat and humidity rooms without good cross ventilation can be oppressive. Keeping the windows open helps but without screens that is not an option. We finally shut the windows and requested a fan which was delivered.
No air conditioning in the room; in August it was very hot during the night.
The hotel was lovely and so close to the lake. The town itself is so beautiful. The waitstaff was kind and helpful. Even when were a little late for breakfast to sit outside, the waiter allowed us and made the experience wonderful. No.
cully is a charming, quiet town on the lake with several nice restaurants and a beautiful promenade. the hotel is clean, charming and the staff very attentive. the hotel restaurant is excellent as well. it was 30c and very hot, no air conditioning and the room was very hot. we had the windows open all night but still were broiling.
All was great
Beautiful location.Very pretty hotel.Good breakfast. We have come to the Grand Vaux region for may years and treated ourselfs to a stay in the Auberge,unfortunately is was rather disappointing,the feeling we got of the place is that they cut corners.The showerstall was covered with mold in the corners,really gross.Lighting is bad, in rooms, no extra pillows.The restaurant is very expensive and not all that great for the price.We will not return.
Located next to Lausanne it boasts "antique"-like classic design of the room and public areas. We liked friendly staff, breakfast, room itself. Parking nearby is limited, we were lucky to get a place.
the quietness, comfort of the room. Location is really good, only one block from the lakeside.
The stafff was poilite and courteous. The checkin was fast and lean. The overall hotel ambience is clean and quite elegant. The breakfast was sweet and simple. Overall a good value for money if we go by the standard room fare. The TV in the room did not work properly even after asking to get thie repaired...
Friendly atmosphere; smiling staff and very caring of their customers. Good food and excellent wine! Lovely outside summer terraces. Free train pass to Lausanne for this is situated right in Lavaux vineyards. Fab view! Close to the train tracks, if one doesn't like train noise don't reserve here. Otherwise everything else is terrific!
friendly staff, Nice room, very good food, high quality of local wines: we passed a nice journey in a fine little familiar hotel. At a quite cold time we had no complaints, because we had the windows closed.In summer by open windows I can imagine that it can become quite noisy because of the nearby passing trains
near the station far from the lake
that it is close to the station the room was extremly small (for a single superior room) and the whole hotel has not seen any obvious renovation since the sventies - well it is stylish again somehow ;-)
it was good hotel little bit cheap, but near main railway station 5 min. of walk, the breakfast was good, but it's not included to the price, check it! The personal was frendly.
Covenient, quiet, comfortable and clean. Excellent for an overnight stay on business. Nothing to report
Position to station. Size of breakfast plates.
the comfort of the room
Location is great, close to train station and metro Beware of the floor. The 2nd is like a basement. Staff is not friendly.
I have only stayed 2 nights and have been away much of the tume, so I cannot really answer this question. There was nothing that made me understand that this would be a 4$ hotel: small reception, basic equipment in the rooms, everything quite small
Fairly good location, comfortable room, friendliness of staff, nice breakfast room
Comfortable, clean hotel, friendly receptionist, convenient location, reasonable price except for internet price which I think you should include in basic price. There was also no room apart from the bedroom wheere I could go quietly to use my computer. All very good
Great location, very very spacious rooms, good breakfast buffet, friendly and professional stuff
good and beautiful 'Modern Art' Hotel extra charges for everything (e.g. SAT-TV, breakfast, etc) reduces value for money drastically
It was very central especially convenient to the train station and bus terminal. The town centre is easy walking distance. Extremely quiet rooms which were also large and airy.
The comfort of the room, the services and the bathroom.
Clean hotel and helpful staff. I booked a single room and was pleasantly surprised by the generous size of the room. Very close to the station (and metro) - perhaps 400 mts away, so easy to get to with luggage. Phone calls to the UK using the hotel phone were, as promised, cheaper than using my pay-as-you-go mobile phone. Having to pay extra for wireless (or wired, for that matter) internet access was a disappointment, since in an equivalent hotel in the UK it tends to come included in the room rate.
Location Beds an pillows are unconfortable
Large rooms Bathrooms are divided from room by glass wall, meaning whenever the the light in the bathroom is on the whole room has the light. Not very convenient when u are in 2.
Big modern room No King Size bed
The room was very large and offered a nice view. The location of the hotel is great. The room was well designed however the atmosphere was therefore a bit cold. The room was located on the fourth floor. We had to take two different elevators to get there,
nicely decorated the room is extremely small roadworks in city centre and the hotel is difficult to be reached
Nice and clean room, good smell. Wireless internet. Door to balcony, which allowed me to refresh the room. Room was quite small. Airco not working (or not available?).
Good location,and in a quiet district The room was incredibly "small". For two adults sharing we had to have the balcony windows open, to mover around. It felt very claustrophobic.
Perfect location, nice rooms. The free internet service. Rooms are comfy but not perfectly clean. Not user friendly for babies, as they have no ramps to access the reception, only stairs. Very expensive breakfast.
Very quite situation No pay-TV (movies)
Very small room
The excellent location right next to the Metro stop and its charming rooms offer a very good value for the money
Staff were very helpful. Location was excellent.First Class hotel. The room was rather small.
perfect location, next to metrostation, only a few minutes from city centre
good location the Food was awful
Everything, it was truly wonderful, the staff were so welcoming and friendly, and the views from our lakeside room balcony were breathtaking.The food was gorgeous, restaurant really pretty with amazing views. To walk around the vineyards in the evening was a joy. There was absolutely nothing negative about this hotel.
The view over the lake is fantastic, the location in the country side makes it a good selection for people seeking relaxation. The room size is too small, no water boiler or comlementry coffee and tea.
The location was beautiful, great views of the lake. The only thing that we didn't like was the price of the dinner buffet, it was very expensive and there was hardly anything to choose from.
Very basic compared to how it is presented/advertised. Perfectly okay, but hardly luxurious. Breakfast was very basic.
cleanliness, nice room, breakfast
Superb location, delightful room with fabulous view across Lake Geneva from balcony and decent food.
The reception staff were very helpful and polite We booked evening dinner and were asked which table we would like we booked but when we went down to dinner other people had been given our table. The waiter was not the same one that booked the table originally, however we were disappointed because the dining room has fabulous views.
The rooms are good and the view of the lake is grand! We found that the service during dinner was resonable but not good.
Friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. Close to rail and road lnks. View overlooking Lake Geneva. Whilst you could not hear any noise from outside, my room had an interconnecting door which meant that I could hear every word that was said by the people next door. No air-conditioning in the room which meant it was too hot.
Lakesight,very nice light room,good food and vines in restaurant:Chief of reception is very kind woman. Swisscom WIFI-hotspot is very expensive.Young waiter in the restaurant is not so good educated. I^ve ordered expensive wine, and had to fill in my glass alone, all time.
convenient & quiet
the room service was bad. in a way, you don't get the same answer from the hotel staff if you call and ask about something you want. for example, i called room service and order dinner. the selection was limited and i wanted Stake. the answer was, the kitcken is closed and no more stake. i called after 5 minutes and i have ordered the stake.
well decorated, efficient. clean The majority of staff is competent, with few notable exceptions at the reception.
We had a discount : 250 chf 2 nights, which is a quite good price. The hotel is easy to find when driving out from the Motorway. The room is clean and big. A few more parking spaces would be welcome. And also, too bad the hotel is not located closer to Lausanne, one needs a car if he wants to move around. A larger choice in the menu of restaurant would also be nice.
Nice room. Nice staff at reception, bar and room. I had reserved a deluxe room on the internet so I was a bit disappointed to find that the reception staff had no record of the reserevation, or indeed if there was even a room avialable. Luckiy there was, and it was very good.
The breakfast was very generous and there was a variety of food to choose from. The room was clean and of a good size.
We got a great deal on Booking.com, so was much cheaper than usual. Nice room very clean We were out all morning and our room was not cleaned (even though the cart was outside out room as we left), when the lady came to clean in the afternoon we were having a nap, so she just gave us some extra coffee, sugar and whitener and thats it. You need a car if your staying here
The hotel is in the process of being renovated to a good standard. The rooms are modern and comfortable. The hotel restaurant offres a good range and the food is excellent. The bed was very uncomfortable on the first night but I was to tired to investiogate. On the second night I realized the mattress was upside down so I stripped the bed and turned the mattress. This was a bad mistake by the housekeepers!
Location is excellent. A little disappointment regarding the breakfast and the food at the dinner.
very modern hotel , with easy parking (handy to the autoroute although not near the tourist area). Very clean and efficient as you would expect in Switzerland. More business than toursist oriented. Rooms favour form over function, not very practical for couples travelling together especially the bathrooms which seem designed for one...and then attached to a double room.
Peace full and relaxing
It is situated close to the Lake I had burned toast for breakfast, the staff is polite but that's it
Close proximity to the IOC and olympic family colleagues
My 3 nights staying at Beau Rivage was wonderfull. I would never forget that. Its spactacular view on the lake, friendly and helpful staff, cleanliness, peace and comfort. In one word it was perfect. Although it is almost 45 minutes drive from Geneva, but for sure I would reserve the same hotel next time.
Overall experience. Great location Nothing
The hotel is so nice that it is very difficult to specify something. In general I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends as this place is absolutely beautiful.
The new rooms The bathroom layout The view Asian food selection at breakfast and Japanese restaurant The color scheme in the halls The Cafe experience is not consistent with the rest Presentation of Asian breakfast at buffet
Luxury- Location-TRUE 5 Star
Fabulous helpful friendly staff Rooms verybuilding tired and hotel decor very stark for a belle epoque
Simply the best hotel on the lake leman. Exceptional, outstanding wonderful!!!
I like very good hotel stuff, they gave a lot of attention to you and try to do the best during the time we spent there. I dont like that they block the money from my credit card more, than the price of room. Until today i dont have the money that they have to retern. It is not a good expierence to block the money in case off...
Comfort, service and luxury.
We had a wonderful view of Lake Geneva, the room was clean, and the breakfast buffet was nice. We enjoyed watching a few small birds beg for crumbs in the restaurant. The safe in the room was easy to use. We found the room's lighting to be inadequate and the shower arrangement was hard to keep the water from splashing out. The halls were dark and unattractive.
It is quite good. Bathroom can be more spacious. Breakfast is very expensive 32 CHF, but it is tasty and the variety is great. Breakfast too expensive . no bed clothes changing.
i liked the lake view from the room which gave it a resort feel. other wise room is small though decent enough for 2 adults. we were travelling with a baby and a baby cot was provided. parking is 26 chf a day..the lake promenade is just outside the hotel and the metro is 100m away. the hotel gives a free travel card..
I stayed at the Movenpick because of the location (next to Lake Lemain, also called Lake Geneva). My room was reasonable in size (not large by US standards, but large by European standards) and had a beautiful view over the lake with the snow capped mountains behind. Absolutely worth paying the extra for the view! The breakfast buffet is very expensive, but you can order a la carte and it's much more affordable. There's a very good fitness center in the hotel (one of the best hotel fitness centers in my experience) with a sauna in it. The hotel has three restaurants, and the chef is very good (same kitchen for all three restaurants, just different atmosphere), and have a fine wine selection. Walking near Lake Lemain is one of the reasons to stay at this hotel. Enjoy! When ordering a la carte for breakfast, the waitstaff are often slow to the point of it being a problem.
It's location, the view and the comfort. Nothing.
Location Food is terrible and very expensive. Only the Icecream is good.
Real friendly and helpful front desk.
Good service from reception staff. Poor value for money.
Location Clean room was not very good
Fish restaurant at the entrance Service at the cafe
there are wonderful staffs and very helpful. it is easy to go every where
It was fine over The things that I didn't like were: 1) difficulties to communicate with staff in English 2) food service was slow and taste is just fair and limited menu options 3) value for money is not there as it's an expensive compare to other international hotels. ...
the room space no balcony on the lake veiw side
Everything: the staff was amazingly good and polite, the location was great,« the facilities were amazing! Nothing
Friendliness of hotel staff despite being luxury hotel-
The Spa and the customer service at the concierge desk
chic, and comfortable the checkout counter charge 30 CHF parking fee per night, even we did not park any car for a night
The staff was amazing!
view on the lake on the sixth floor the walls are not really sound proof...
very good no wire less
Some of the staff were polite and used my name when serving me (example the room service team used my name when delivering my order) and I was escorted to my room by the reception Some of the service in the food and beverage areas of the hotel was very poor, and some of the staff were very cold when answering my questions. When I arrived at the hotel there was no one to greet me and help with my bags. Reception was confusing and under staffed.
Everything. Very luxurious. Spa was great. Room service was wonderful - my non-french speaking husband had ordered, so there were two mixups. We asked them to fix one and forget about the other, but they came back upstairs twice to take care of it, and didn't charge us for the forgotten dessert that they delivered to us anyway. The beds are amazingly comfortable. The internet was speedy and no problems connecting. All of the staff were courteous and friendly. We wish we could afford to stay there more often.
Beautiful hotel, lovely setting
Lovely restaurant with an interesting menu. I will ask for a view of the lake next time.
The Hotel was beautiful the staff fantastic and the location incredible . We had a fabulous time and will return
Hotel style , I like very much all furniture and design. Hotel style is prestigious but family atmosphere. I really like this hotel. In the toilette, the floor is cold. and toilette seat is cold. It will be nice to change the toilette seat into the Toto ( Japanese maker ) . Toto's toilette seat is really confortable. Please check this.http://www.toto.co.jp/products/toilet/toilet_list.htm
Outstanding location and tasteful refurbishment Disapppointing restaurant with a limited menu - the same for lunch and dinner. A hotel of this standard should serve breakfast rather than offer standard buffet style
Staff was extraordinarily helpful. The hotel was recently renovated and was beautiful. The location of the hotel is perfect. No
Lobby, reception, restaurant, room, all first class !! This hotel is very romantic..
The situation, quietness, comfort, style, room quality, restaurant and service Nothing
The employees of this hotel are very friendly and competent. The hotel is central and has wonderful food. We were treated as special quests even though we didn't appear rich.
i like the style of furniture in the lobby and the hotel was very neat and harmonized i really could not sleep well in the morning due to some instruction work down my window in the front of the hotel yard that's why i think they should've given me a room with a lake view just make my stay pleasant.
It was very central and in close proximity to the Train Station Safe in room did not work and breakfast was a let down.
The hotel staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. I enjoyed the close proximity to the train station. There is a fee for connecting to the internet
Friendly service in the breakfast buffet. The lady who served me was always friendly and very helpful. I arrived on 18th July, when the weather was extremely hot. I asked Reception if they had a fan, and they said the last one had been given to someone else. I had difficulty sleeping because the window did not open very far. I think it would be a great improvement to have air-conditioning in all rooms, as I understand from the Manager, that there are some rooms with air-conditioning. It would have been nice if the Receptionist could have tried to find me something with air-con.
Location is very convenient, staff are helpful and nice. This is a very old hotel. It needs a upgrade work on the rooms, things especially like beds, carpets, wall coverings and window covering. And it will help if it has a/C.
We loved our stay at Continental Hotel Lausanne. The proximity to all forms of transport plus the free ticket given by the Hotel was so convenient. The view of the mountains from our room was just lovely. It was peaceful and yet it was in the hub! The breakfast was excellent with so many choices. The Staff were friendly and helpful. Our stay was very enjoyable and as we were visiting family we will stay at this Hotel again. Perhaps tea/coffee facilities in the room!
Very close to train station. Windows didn't open very much which is important in June with no a/c.
Friendlyness of staff Room very old fashion - needs renovation
Clean, good location Expensive, small rooms for a 4 stars hotel. First time i had to make a caution and give my amex number, The small things that usually are free in that kind of hotels you had to pay for them
The room was spacious and very tastefully decorated with a beautiful view of the lake and mountains. The location was quite convenient to the train station as well. We were able to walk to the old town as well as the the lake.
room was welcoming, very clean lines and right across from station, hotel will give you a transport card which is great to visit the lakeside ouchy section...the reception and outside are standard, don't give indication of nice room/bathroom, reception gave me a converter which was fantastic as my converter didn't work in the swiss outlets expensive, breakfast included but nothing hot included in the spread and no internet access
Location Breakfast has a limited choice of menu
Great Location and very helpful and friendly staff.
Comfort and location
The renovated room was superp. Spacious, comfortable, clean. Good breakfast.
Very comfortable hotel with very obliging staff. Excellent views of city. Very accessable by metro to main sites.
Hotel room (516/7) with balconies. Once we went down at 0955 for breakfast and one of the staff passed a comment even though there were still guests having breakfast. Otherwise the service was provided just as good.
The friendly staff Rooms facing the back and looking into other rooms. Had to keep the curtains drawn all the time
Room was very nice with an extraordinary view of the lake but I would say that the breakfast was no more than marginal. Service from the front desk to the bartenders was good with everyone being attentive to our needs.
the staf, location to the city center and shopping, big standar room with flat t.v, not bad bathroom, far from the lake (by walking), poor lobby.
nice room & bathroom - excellent reception service - excellent parking service in center of city breakfast was not really up to standard
The staff at the reception are very professional, kind and welcoming. The old style of the hotel that is kept. It is very elegant and classy.
The first week I had a comfortable room with a beautiful view on the Lake Leman. The second time I stayed there I had a stuffy room, while I paid a lot more than the week before. I asked for a better room twice, but was not helped so I moved to another hotel.
Everything was perfect.
Efficient, Friendly, Comfortable, Location Nothing
Hotel Staff always willing to help Pool Spa and Haman out of action for the rest of the year very disappointing
Really nice hotel, best location, excellent staff,really nice spa. Spectacular view of the Savoyen alps and lake Geneva the control panel for the heating didn't work properly, and so the temparature was a little bit too low at night.
This hotel was amazing - the hisotry, luxury and service were impeccable. Beautiful views over teh lake and excellent tour advice and assistance. The restaurant was of gourmet rating.
The service and the facilities
the glorious views overlooking the lake; the peace and quiet; the attentive and helpful reception.
Extremely friendly and professional staff. Super Spa facilities. Delightful room. More notice needed to those having breakfast as to when it is finishing on the day. We came down at 10am on Monday thinking it would continue until 11am -as per Sunday. And were told at 10.25 that it would be closing at 10.30 ie a weekday.At evening meals there was one young girl who served us who was glum and unfriendly-definetely needed more training in people skills.Some of the food was disappointing but most of it was excellent. I would not say that the level was consistently excellent.
Comfortable, did notice that the room I was given I think (not sure) was allocated to guests booking at lower prices eg. after first night free newspaprer at door not delivered, no chocolates at night certain prices - coffee, water etc were very expensive but I suppose to be expected in a 5 star hotel. Staff did not speak very good English, not front staff, staff in dining room.
A hall is not a living hall.
great location, and great views of the city carpet was dirty, and many of the common areas were dirty too.
Location, relatively inexpensive The rooms desperately need to be remodeled, no breakfast incl., no free parking
Very comfortable, friendly staff and good location being at the exit of the metro station and close walk to main attractions. Breakfast was expensive and hotel decor was a little dated. Was expecting more for the money I paid
Location and friendly staff was also quiet Poor bed position in room and no hot water jug for tea making
Modern style of this recently redesigned hotel. Excellent location, with a nice view on the cathedral (rooms with view slightly more expensive but worth the extra cost). Friendly staff. Free Web access only in the lobby. Bad accoustic isolation from the corridor.
Checking-in and out : quick and very efficient. Room: ok for the price - we are in Swiss after all. It's better to take a metro from the rail-station, because even if there is only a 10 min distance there is only up-hill, so if you have a big suitcase it's not recommended.
Close to city center, and clean inside the Hotel.
Location was good. No air conditioning and leaving the window open was not an option because of the incredible noise all night!
convenience to the cathedral, and shopping under the beds was not cleaned
The hotel is nice. The price is okay. We didn't like the price for the breakfast (30 CHF). That's just to much when you had a big meal the night before and just want something rather small. Our stay was just one night and therefore we can't juge.
The way the hotel was up dated and the nice view from the balcony.
The modern decoration is beautiful and looks happy
the location is really nice but definitely too expensive and the food at the hotel was poor the staff, even though nice, is not up to a 4 stars hotel. At the cost of the room, I would expect at least breakfast to be included.
The beautiful room The restaurant was disappointing and the service in the bar very poor
the service was perfect, the food as well and i got a good upgrade of my room. so the holiday was perfect
the look of the room, the bed was very comfortable. the only English speaking entertainment channel was not working.the tv screen was a little too small to watch tv from bed - distance between bed & tv to great. would have been nice to have free wi-fi in room rather than not just cable connection
The room was excellent, as well as hotel facilities.The food was good (we had breakfast).Everything is still new and clean since the hotel has been recently opened. The hotel spa (consists of dry and wet sauna only) is supposed to stay open between 07:00 am and 20:00 pm, but in fact the hotel staff was trying to prevent us from using it, and gave us a free entrance ticket to another hotel spa (which was 10 minutes drive!).We had an argument with the hotel staff and they finally let us in late in the evening.
The proximity to the lake, the food in the restaurant, the use of the Spa at the Palace
stunning hotel in a fantastic location, easy access to the metro expensive bar
It was good to have free internet access in the room. The hotel staffs were helpful and very kind. If you stay at the lake-side room, it would be wonderful but we still have a fine view from the balcony even of the room at the street side. The hotel is situated near the station and provided us the free traffic pass during our whole stay. The price sounds a little bit too high.
Professionalism and courtesy
Within walking distance of the train station. Free use of Metro and buses with hotel card. Free breakfast was very good. Nice size rooms and bathrooms. Free internet in rooms. Small elevator.
Nice atmosphere, great restaurant food and breakfast Balcony view onto construction site
Friendly staff, nice design, very good breakfast, clean rooms, restaurant. The metro station is pretty far
It is conveniently located in the middle of Lausanne with a bus stop on the corner and free bus pass provided for the duration of one's stay. It has the "feel" of a good, solid, French-Swiss, turn-of-the-twentieth century hotel. Some rooms have a view of the lake and the French Alps to the south.
Convenient location close to rail station and reasonable price for quality of hotel. Room had balcony and partial view of the lake. Extremely comfortable bed and pillows. Bathroom was somewhat dated in appearance. Carpet likewise was somewhat worn out.
