Magical old world hotel right on Lake Geneva

by Philby_79Sydney on 23 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

I stayed for one night, it was such a lovely hotel, felt like we had gone back in time but in a good way. What was fab? • Old world charm • Spacious rooms with balcony overlooking lake • Amazing front desk staff who made us feel very welcomed • Tasty, hot and quick room service breakfast (was snowing outside, sat in oversized arm chair and was so comfy) What was drab? • Hotel is warn in places and may need renovations • Need more of a bar atmosphere, service was a bit slow due to lim...

My stay at Hotel du Grand Lac Excelsior

by corneb686 on 18 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

In it's heyday 70 odd years ago this must have been a very grand and luxurious hotel. I can appreciate the old building/ architecture which must have been built in the late 1800's, as well as the antiques etc etc. Our room was pretty shabby, and not something you would expect from a 4 star hotel. The sanitaryware was from the 60's,the furniture in the room showed signs of wear and tear and some of it probably belonged to Grandma and came from the 1930's. The new flat screen TV was wall mounted b...

nice stop over, pity it was only one night

by littleirishjay on 08 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

Nicely located. Fantastic pool and wellness area. Awesome view of the Lake. Great walks along the manicured coast line. Enormous room, very pretty. Kids weren't comfy on the sofa-bed, the noisy springs woke them - and me during the night. Breakfast was served at a table with a view of the sun rising over the lake. Pity we weren't staying longer, but we will be back.

Sub-Optimal Start but Fantastic Recovery

We arrived around 3:30 PM at the Hotel du Grand Lac Excelsior to find that our booked "junior suite" for my family of four wasn't ready due to a minor error on the part of the hotel. After waiting around 30 minutes and chatting with the staff about options, we were upgraded to a fantastic two-bedroom suite on the fifth floor. This suite was very nice and we greatly enjoyed our night at the hotel. The staff was polite and attentive, and the upgrade to the suite more than made up for the short del...

Great stay and amazing views of lake Geneva

by L H on 04 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

We really enjoyed our stay here, for the price we paid for one family room with breakfast it more than exceeded our expectations. The family room was huge - it had 2 bathrooms and a lounge area, one double bed and two camp beds set up for the kids. We had beautiful views of Lake Geneva from our room and it was very clean. Breakfast was a basic continential but there was enough choice for everyone and again from the resturant the view is amazing of the lake. The reception team were fantastic help...
