Nestled between the big boys (Angleterre, Chateau d'Ouchy and the Beau Rivage) this family run hotel and restaurant is a real gem. Wonderful view across the lake for a very sensible price. Comfortable rooms with friendly service and a warm welcome. Try the set menues at their harbour front restaurant. Great value for money and delicious choices. A real secret...

This hotel surpassed my expectations in every respect - and how rare is that? The location is superb - right by the beautiful lake with stunning views; one minute's walk from the Metro Ouchy which delivers you (free with card from the hotel) to Lausanne centre; three minutes' walk at most from the boat booking office. (Tip - get to...

What a lovely little place this is, situated on Lake Geneva with views out over the lake if you ask for a lakeside room of course. It’s obvious that some thought has gone into the design in this place with things like the lights turning on outside the rooms when you step out of the lift. The room was bigger...

We had a 4 night stay at the hotel and found it very comfortable. We had a lake view which was gorgeous. The windows were good in blocking out street noise at night, though there wasn't much of that except for Saturday night. The bathroom had a huge soaker tub which is a nice change from the tiny shower stalls...

We got a room facing the lake...great view. The hotel is very convenient. 2 min walk from the Ouchy train station. We took a train from Geneva to Lausanne, and from main station to Ouchy took a max of 10 min. Excellent breakfast with many different selections, and the room is clean and reasonable. Very good value for Switzerland. 10...

Stayed for 1 night in order to be relatively close (by train) to Geneva airport for early flight. Friendly efficient staff, excellant breakfast and clean, comfortable room in hotel both close to metro station Ouchy (200 metres) that connects directly with main line station and lakeside prom (100 metres), together with numerous restaurants.

Main attraction here is the location, raise the lake and beside the tram. Try to get a lake view, it make all the difference. Rooms are average.

We found this hotel to be a good value for Switzerland. There are much more expensive 4 and 5 star hotels that share the same location and similar views. This hotel is on the lake and very close to a metro station which is very convenient to get to the train station and to central Lausanne. We were given a...

This hotel is located directly across from the Chateau d'Ouchy, right 'on' the lake in this excellent part of Lausanne. Given the prices and often limited availability of the 'higher-end' properties in this area I would recommend this hotel as a 'more economical' option. But be advised that, in this area, prices are so high that 'economical' is 150-200 CHF...

Our room was lovely, clean, comfortable, and quiet. Breakfast was good. Location excellent. Service was helpful and friendly. Wi-fi was free and strong. Nice view out over the lake. Our one caveat is that we arrived by car. You have to pull up on the sidewalk and quickly unload your bags. There were 3 of us, so I could leave...
