Elegantly poised at the edge of Lake Geneva
Throw open the French doors to your suite, breathe the fresh mountain air and gaze out over placid Lake Geneva and its famous Jet d’Eau, the magnificent 140-metre fountain. Our prominent hotel affords guests spectacular lakeside views, backed by snow-dusted Alpine peaks and the majestic Mont Blanc.
Set in the heart of the picturesque Swiss city of Geneva, the Hotel d'Angleterre combines the joys of a central location – the complimentary boat shuttle service leaves from just outside the hotel – with the relaxing atmosphere of a lakeside retreat. Make the most of all the Geneva has to offer from our enviable central location, returning to the luxurious surroundings of Hotel d'Angleterre after a lively day in the city.
