We've stayed at the Major Davel twice. If you don't like old Europe you won't like this. A beautiful location, quiet,, charming, where people gather in the afternoons or evenings to have a coffee or glass of local wine. Mme Messmer was always nice to us, as was everyone there.

I had the misfortune of visiting Au Major Davel. The food isn't really wonderful, and the hostess treats her employees horribly. You can just see it in their faces, it's quite sad. The view is great over looking Lake Geneva, though.

Breakfast (served on the covered terrace) was a disappointment, so was dinner at the hotel.
