Excellent value. Clean and comfortable. Picturesque location. Excellent facilities. Nice staff.
We booked this hotel for a one night stay during a trip to France and Italy. The hotel is situated near Lake Leman (Lake Geneva) on the French side. Although the hotel is advertised as a 2 star- it is very comfortable, clean and perfect for a short or long stay.
The hotel is perfectly situated- very close to the Lake. (Rooms at the front look over a very pretty square with view to the water. Evian, obviously famous for mineral water is a very clean, picturesque town, with plenty of shops, markets and cafes to visit. The lake is beautiful, and the town is safe and friendly to walk around at night.
Many restaurants are nearby from lo- to high budget. And there are plentiful cafe-bars, shops, gift shops and clothes
The Receptionist spoke excellent English (handy if you have rusty French) and the rooms were clean- comfortable, with good bathroom facilities. No drinks facilities were in the room, but you can easily step outside- and best to do so as the scenery is lovely.
There is easy access from the 3rd floor to the back of the hotel, to the free parking and to the source of the water where you can fill up as many bottles as you like!
** TIP** You cannot access the front of the hotel by car- there is a parking area and nearby public car park at the rear. Leave your car here and check in.**
Breakfast was included and was very good- usual continental breakfast, very well presented with fresh and hot pastries, tea, cerals, meats, yoghurts etc. Again staff were very friendly. Nice (small) garden at the back- and very accessible.
**TIP** Most of the shops close on a Monday!
Highly recommended, very good value for money and would visit again.
