      Individual guest reviews

      • Its location is very convenient and just a few minutes walk from the train station. The hotel staff are friendly, the Chinese restaurant a few doors along the street is surprisingly good and room is big and the bed is extremely comfortable. The breakfast is excellent.

        Wifi connection of very low quality available only at the lobby hall, furniture is outdated and the toilet all are very old.

      • The location was amazing and my first view of the hotel was the bright red carpet stairs leading to the reception area. Staff were great and helpful, the beds were very comfortable. Linens and towels were clean, breakfast was good.

        The place looked like hasn't been refurbished for at least 20 years, the room was very small and limited parking facilities, gave us problems arriving late.

      • Central location near to the lakeside and the front desk was the most amazing part of the hotel. Staff were just wonderful and the bedroom suite was spacious and clean. The breakfast was nice.

        Room run down and tired.

      • Quite suprising for such a nice location and pleasant family stay. Excellent service and value, the receptionist was very helpful and friendly. The room was clean, breakfast was good and the staff there were efficient.

        Not the hotels fault, weather unusually warm.

      • The bus pass gives you free access on the local buses throughout the city, the location is great within 2 blocks from the Casino and the Lake Leman, decor is poor in the rooms and bathroom. The staff are very helpful and breakfast served there is good.

        The hotel is old.

      • Just next to the bus stop and good location. At a wonderful place, the reception was nice and informed us free wifi was available in the lobby, the staff all spoke English and were very helpful. The bed was comfortable and breakfast was sufficient and certainly was enough to get you going for the day.

        The hotel looked old, the lake view room only has a narrow lake view the two casino buildings.

        Hotel charged a very high rate for credit card / wifi in public area only, breakfast could be a bit better organised.
