Our family

The Hotel d’Angleterre is a proud part of the family-owned and run The Red Carnation Hotel Collection. Led by General Manager, Jean-Vital Domezon, with over 20 years with the company, our team is a family of warm and passionate people, deeply committed to giving the very best guest experience. We are deeply proud of the hotel’s history, both as one of the first hotels in Geneva, and as the city’s only luxury boutique hotel.

A breathtaking location

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, backed by snow-dusted Alpine peaks and the majestic Mont-Blanc. Set in the heart of the picturesque Swiss city of Geneva, the hotel 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.

An extrordinary heritage

Built-in 1872, the hotel is a true city landmark, with an impressive facade designed by celebrated architect Anthony Krafft. Not only is Hotel d’Angleterre famous for its refined style and generous service, but our pedigree means we are also proud to have some of the longest-serving members of staff.

Dining with a view

From delectable swiss Beef to the theatrical Crêpes Suzette prepared at your table, healthy breakfasts and delicious high teas, Windows restaurant is renowned for service and spectacular views over the lake. Executive Chef Alexandre Cardiga creates signature dishes from our founder and president Beatrice Tollman, alongside local specialities and an exceptional wine list, including hand-crafted wines from our sister property vineyard, Bouchard Finlayson.

Stories to tell

Our history runs deep. Even our meeting spaces have incredible stories to tell, from the blue-walled Louise Salon, named after Princess Louise of Saxe who fell in love right here with her children's Belgian teacher, to the classic, gentlemen’s club-like Cigar Lounge, or the vibrant Leopard Lounge. The Parquet Salon, meanwhile, is an elegant room with golden chandeliers and its original
19th-century flooring.

Unique design and curated art

Stay more than once and you’ll quickly see that no two rooms are alike. Each is filled with carefully curated antique pieces and fascinating pieces of art, with beautiful marble and onyx bathrooms, raw silk curtains and rich, fabric-lined walls giving a cosy yet sumptuous feel. Some suites have private balconies overlooking the lake, while others feature fine art lithographs by Miró, Calder or Picasso – and all are designed with our guests’ comfort
at front of mind.

Thoughtful touches

Our staff are proud to work in such a historical hotel, and are passionate about the genuine difference they can make to each and every guest’s stay. From knowing your name from the moment you arrive, or offering a complimentary glass of Champagne before dinner, to setting up a delicious picnic by the lake, or leaving delicate hand-made chocolates in your suite, our service is subtle, caring and truly generous.

Authentic experiences

Visitors and locals flock to our justly famous afternoon tea, where home-made cakes and delicate finger sandwiches are served on elegant tiered plates – all enjoyed with the finest views of Lake Geneva. Our local experiences are exceptional, thanks to our expert concierge team and our long-standing relationships, including a fascinating half-day watchmaking workshop, an unforgettable picnic in the Parc de la Perle du Lac, and an insightful market tour with our Executive Chef.
