This was a really delightful guest house. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Also is a great place to stay to be near to Geneva airport. We did not have breakfast there but I heard it was fantastic. We ventured over the road to a bakery which was to die for. Great place to stay .

Very tiny and silent place. I visit their restaurant, very satisfactory. Like the tastes from beginning to the end ... very near to Geneva exhibition Palexpo , around 3 km . Restaurant was very clean and timely service, rooms should be similar . Boutique hotel style. Definitely recommended

This is a truly peaceful and delightful place to stay with a classical attention to detail. The staff were extremely polite, attentive and responsive to every request. Our room was clean and well appointed with the most comfortable bed and charming views over Ferney Voltaire. Situated on the third floor, the stairs were quite manageable in turn for the delight...

a fair classical food restaurant; a varied menu with long established typical French cuisine. makes for pleasant evening out especially in summer as the restaurant has a very pleasant terrace. prices are ok compared to geneva centre; the restaurant is 10 mn drive from the airport CP & CP family

for a little hotel in a small town, this was very comfortable. no elevator, so be prepared to walk up 3 flights if your room is on the 3rd floor. has a very good restaurant, but it is closed on Sundays. so if you arrive for your room on a sunday, they will send you a code to get into...

The hotel is nice and well located , near the bus stops of the F to Geneva and Y to the airport. The house is old but well refurbished and kept. The breakfast is well done. One has to consider that the rooms are located on 3 floors and the lift is not existing. The personnel usually doesn't help to...

The restaurant is of a very good standard with an interesting menu that varies with seasons (I have been a number of times throughout the years). A good wine card. One can say that the restaurant serves very good traditional French food but at the same time is quite "heavy",but this does not deny the excellent taste of the food....

Be aware when booking this historic hotel that breakfast is not included in the price of the rooms and that you MUST book a table for dinner even if you are a guest staying in the hotel. We waited 1hr 30 for our starters, having turned up with no reservation, with no explanation as to why there was such a...

We were recommended to this Hotel by a friend, however it is very basic.Firstly although we were warned that there is no lift, we didn't imagine that the stairs were narrow and steep. We had a room on the third floor and it was very cold. There were no curtains on the windows which I think may have helped keep...

Although the room itself is basic, I loved getting out of town and staying in the cute village atmosphere of a small typically french town. Much more atmosphere than staying in one of many geneva airport hotels. The restuarant is a highlight, actually the pride of the place and four course haute cuisine. Easy to get here, bus Y from...
