Out & About Two Swiss Lakes, a journey by boat and train. Switzerland has stunning alpine scenery but it also has some very beautiful lakes, including the largest in western Europe- le Léman or Lac de Genève. We visit Genève: our arrival point -the international airport, Gare Cornavin and the wonderful lakeside. A waterbus takes us on a harbour tour then a cable car run up Mt. Salève, At Lausanne we see: the cathedral and old town, then the lakeside At the tourist information office we learn how a new metro will make travel in the city easy. We take a paddle steamer to Montreux for a visit to the iconic Chillon Castle. Along the way we view trains and boats and pay special attention to Cully where the vineyards almost touch the water. On Lac de Neuchâtel we visit another castle Grandson and again watch trains and boats along the idyllic lakeside. We take a boat through Zihlkanal and onto the Bieler See for the best views between Neuchâtel and Biel where we take a funicular to view the city. There's lots of very practical advice throughout: eating, drinking, hotels, places to visit and how to get the best out of Switzerland's wonderful public transport.
Advantages: Very welcoming, clean, lovely view Disadvantages: no bath in our room.
...When it was beautiful weather last summer a friend of mine asked if I would like a night away with her as a treat. This really was a lovely one off and we decided it would be lovely to go to the seaside. We opted for Llandudno as we have both travelled here a few times and have happy memories. We also thought that there would be plenty of sights for us to see. We chose this hotel after reading...
Advantages: Clean, basic, reasonably priced, well-situated Disadvantages: Could be better decor in rooms, buffet a bit hit and miss
...When our coach pulled up outside the back of Hotel Ternopil, I saw a large impersonal hotel, which looked like it had no charm or individuality, a throwback from the Soviet era. My first impressions were not entirely inaccurate, but the hotel is well situated, by Lake Ternopil, and has had a good re-vamp.
Whilst the outside of the hotel, which is in good condition, does look unappealing...

Review of Hotel Ternopil
Advantages: Clean and spacious rooms, friendly staff, good food, relatively cheap Disadvantages: Car park could be bigger
.... With Derry being the 2013 UK City of Culture, the prices were unreasonable (over £70 for a basic room in a Travelodge?), so when I saw this hotel offering bed and breakfast for £60 for the room, I thought it seemed reasonable. What swung it for me though was that this hotel had an 8.9 star rating on TripAdvisor, which was higher than some of what I would have considered the top hotels in the area.
