Lovely hotel in peaceful, tranquil area with spectPosted May 30, 2015
Lovely, small hotel in peaceful, tranquil area with spectacular views. A little out of the city but only 9 minutes by train (twice an hour and free with hotel pass) to Lausanne. The hosts are very welcoming and the restaurant is superb. It was the perfect tonic to an overly hectic schedule and we enjoyed every minute.

Excellent stay in proximity to Lavaux vineyardsPosted Jun 30, 2014 on Hotels
Very comfortable and well equipped bedroom - I had what amounted to a vill in the gardens. Very welcoming staff. As it was a monday, the hotel was closed, but the manager very kindly knocked me up a salad and cold meats when I had found difficulty in finding somewhere else to eat locally. Very nice breakfast. Personally, I didn't find the fairly quiet adjacent rail line a problem at all - yes the line interrupted the view from the hotel, but the proximity to Grandvaux station was a real benefit to me - with regular trains to Lausanne.

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!
