Lovely setting,with views to die forPosted May 24, 2014
Pros: It has a very individual character,high levels of comfort and a truly laid-back atmopshere. The views are just stunning, as are some dishes.
Cons: There's none of the usual room info, so you have to work it out (not hard), but otherwise, very little.
Location: Regular trains run into Lausanne; the local card (free to guests) gives free local transport. Lutry is beautiful; the steamship an experience.
We spent a truly relaxing weekend based at l'Auberge de la Gare, having travelled by rail from Geneva via Lausanne; the Auberge is a stone's throw from the station yet not disturbed by passing trains at all. The views are mesmerising, the auberge charming and homely yet with all modern comforts; it's popular with locals, who call in for a drink or a snack, and I imagine that a meal or drink in the sun on the terrace would be sheer heaven after a busy day.

A nice little place with amazing viewsPosted May 19, 2014
Pros: The room is clean, spacious and very comfortable. The view through the windows is unbelievable. The restaurant downstairs serves amazing food.
Cons: The hotel is more like a B&B with the restaurant downstairs being the main business. There is no front desk or designated people for hotel.
Location: The hotel is located in the middle of vineyards. You need to drive through mazes of extremely narrow paths in order to reach it.
This hotel is a gem for people who travels with a car and doesn't need a lot of help from the hotel staff. It is nicely located in the middle vineyards and the view is amazing (I saw beautiful rainbows over the mountains and the lake right from my hotel room). The room itself is spacious and comfortable. But there are a few things I would like the bring up for references. First of all it isn't the easiest thing to find the hotel even with a GPS. My GPS gave me wrong directions and also the roads are extremely narrow (sometimes single lane for traffic from both directions). Also I don't know if I should call it a hotel because it only has two guest rooms(?) and there isn't any front desk or designated staff for hotel. Every time I got questions I had to go downstairs to the restaurant and ask the servers there. On Sundays the restaurant is closed so you are pretty much on your own. For me I don't mind it that much and I would go back if I visit the area again.

In the middle of the vineyardsPosted Oct 1, 2013
Cons: parking is limited due to the popularity of the restaurant.
Location: Gruyeres and Chateau Chillon, Lausanne and Geneva and a vinery
What a lovely unique hotel. Everyone was terrific. Our room was in the back separate from the main building which has maybe 4 rooms. It felt very French and country. The restaurant was also great. We ate there 2 nights. The train may be an issue, but it was not for us. We found it convenient to hop on the train. You are surrounded by vineyards and have a fabulous view of Lake Geneva. What more could you want?

Hidden treasure in a UNESCO World Heritage Site!Posted Sep 14, 2013
Pros: Location, location, location! We liked everything.
Location: The location is overlooking Lake Geneva and Vinyards. The Grandvaux train station is a very short walk and Lausanne is 9 minutes away. Lots to do.
Fantastic views of Lake Geneva and local vineyards covering the hills. The owner is the Chef in the restaurant and the food is superb! There are only a few rooms and reservations are necessary for both the Hotel and Restaurant. The owners are very friendly and helpful and we hated to leave!

A great place to stay!Posted May 27, 2013
This was a very charming spot in the middle of the vineyards with pluses such as easy free parking, free wifi, a great restaurant, and personnel that were very helpful. I just came from a $500 per night hotel and the experience at this hotel was ever bit as good if not better.
