What a lovely Holiday Inn in France - so close to the airport and so much more relaxing than staying in the center of Geneva or directly at the airport. The shuttle drivers were all very friendly and helpful and helped us find an incredible french restaurant Le Coq Rouge nearby. The entire experience was really something nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cwmfelinfach Easily accessible from Geneva airport
I have stayed here four times now and it is a decent choice if you need to be near Geneva airport or near to CERN. However, it is out in the middle of the country (on a busy main road but not in built-up area) so do not expect any restaurants, shops or facilities nearby. If you get a good room. you’ll have lovely mountain views.
In normal traffic, the shuttle to and from the airport takes about 15 minutes. It comes to pick you up on demand and goes back once an hour on the hour. It will also drop you off at a tram stop which goes into central Geneva. A taxi to the airport will cost about €45 and to Geneva up to €70.
The hotel normally costs less than the close-in airport options so, oddly, it is usually cheaper than the Holiday Inn Express (which is much closer).
The executive rooms are bright and spacious. The normal ones are smaller, darker and less appealing. Don't rely on getting upgraded if you have an IC platinum card (I was once). There is more hall noise than there needs to be but I am more sensitive to the issue than most people. A few simple steps would cut banging and mute conversation
Breakfast is fine but nothing beyond the usual buffet. All I care about is a functioning Espresso machine (€7 for two doubles). Room service is very limited and ends at 11 pm. The minibar is expensive but not extortionate. You would be better off going to the Migros supermarket at Geneva airport (it's open until 9 pm) or one of the take -aways at the airport (some are open until 11)
There is no gym at all which is a big omission in a location this far from any other fitness choices. Of course, there is almost limitless room for running or walking but you would need to be hardy in winter. By contrast, the Holiday Inn Express has an agreement which allows guests to pay for daily use of an excellent nearby health club.
The Internet service is provided by Swisscom. As always with Swisscom, this means a complex log in name and password and that the service drops out from time to time. Most of the time, though, it’s adequate although sometimes not always fast enough even for radio streaming. (That must delight the visiting CERN physicists) You’ll need a separate username for each device. As a platinum member, they happily gave me three.
The people at this Holiday Inn are great: friendly, capable and very helpful.
The hotel is spotlessly clean and well maintained

Not a good value/price compromise. The internet service often didn't work. It was difficult to take a shower without getting the floor wet. The breakfast was O.K. but not a good a good value. The staff were generally friendly and attentive.

A very tired hotel - a long way from the airport.
The wifi is absolutely hopeless so if you're there and need internet access, book another hotel.

A comfortable stay in a well kept hotel. Dramatic view of the mountains.
A good location for a few days of peace and quiet.
Not the place to go for nightlife !

Overall great experience staying here. The staff was very efficient, polite, and welcoming after our long drive to get here. The rooms were clean and big, a welcome relief from other rooms in France we stayed during our trip. I would recommend to take the airport shuttle if at all possible as the cab ride to the airport (which was quickly arranged by the staff) is fairly expensive at 60 euro.

ok, we have been in Thoiry many times and expect to return soon. For us it is a nice hotel in a quiet surroundings with good service. We experienced a extremely high price which we had never before.We think it was too high.

We stayed here for a night on a layover back to the States. The food was fantastic. The rooms were much larger than expected. Well worth the money. Also, they provide a free airport shuttle and the folks at the airport will call them for you. We used that and they were very prompt.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by primitivepios Very Poor
Just came back after staying for 3 nights at the hotel.
Location is nice if you have a car, and the views are great. But the rooms are very dated, and you feel that - bathroom doesn't have a clean feeling to it at all (toilet has stains and a yellowish color to it, which you can only relate to years of use withour any renovations), carpets could be much cleaner and the sheets are very stiff (laundered too many times and should be replaced).
Breakfast is a disaster - very expensive, very limited choices, and the worst of all - many of the dishes were empty mose of the time since the staff failed to refill. That caused situations where we had to wait very ling for some bacon (and in one morning, we ended up leaving without eating bacon at all since it was never replenished...). On top of it all, when food finally appears, the amount brought from the kitchen is so small that it disappears quickly.
Service was very good, but the hotel needs renovation work ASAP (and to change the very old towels and sheets), and to change their entire way of handling breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eder Good facilities and friendly helpful staff
I stayed in this hotel for a night and business purposes. All facilities were in good condition and according to the specifications during booking. The best of this hotel were the friendliness of the staff. Note that the hotel is about 20 mins from Geneva by car. I did not use it, however the hotel offers a suttle bus to the airport

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Up In The AIr Professor Reasonable Near-by hotel
This hotel is in France, a mile or so from the nearest Swiss border crossing at the main entrance to CERN. The hotel itself is a collection of building additions, such that the rooms vary in size and accessibility depending upon which wing you are in. Generally the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is open for meals every day, which in the local area can be problematic for Sunday evening meals outside the hotel. There is a shuttle service that runs hourly to the airport, or to CERN, (both of which are too far away to get to any other way). However, you can take a bus or tram from either the airport or CERN to access almost anything in Geneva. Because of the need to use the shuttle to go anywhere if you do not have a car, this is not a good choice for tourists visiting Geneva. My only negative comment is that the shuttle service does not begin until 7:00 AM and it can take 30 minutes to get to the airport in traffic, so you cannot depend on the shuttle service if your flight leaves before ~8:30 AM, and there are a lot of flights that do. The only alternative is to have a taxi take you and the taxi fare can be comparable to the least expensive single night's room rate at the hotel!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pete124 Great option for Geneva Airport
Have stayed at this hotel numerous times in the past, and this was my first visit in about 2 years. Much to mu surprise I was warmly greeted at reception as I entered the hotel saying how nice it was to see me again after such a long time.
Likewise was welcomed back by restaurant staff.
I was given an executive room, and they really are very large by standard European standards for an equivalent 4* airport hotel.
While this hotel is just over the border in France, it is in my opinion by the best choice within its price range for Geneva airport.
The beds are large with nice mattresses and WONDERFUL pillows (you're given firm and soft ones). Always get a wonderful sleep in this hotel.

Very good hotel. It is the best in the area.
But, the high breakfast cost (16.5 euros) was justified in the past years (rich list of options). Now it is not justified due to the poor list of options.

Better overall than any Holiday Inn I have stayed in, despite not having some of the facilities others have. Attentive, friendly but non-invasive staff make you feel more human than sheep when travelling on business.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tinu nice hotel, good location
great for early departures from Geneva Airport, spacious rooms. Hotel food poor. Staff ordered a taxi for me for an early morning departure to Geneva Airport - Taxi was on time, but it wasn`t a regular taxi - some kind of a Limousine which I hadn`t asked for. Charge for the 10 min trip Euro 60 ! Will not recommend this Hotel, since staff doesn`t actually care for their customers.

The rooms have been very dirty, in the toilet I could still see excrement of the former user of the room and in the bathroom unfortunately I found a lot of hair, dust & dirt in every corner. The breakfast was all cold (bacon, sausages & eggs). In total I can not recommend this Hotel!

I am always happy to return to Holiday Inn Thoiry. It is comfortable without being pretentions, everything works, and I feel at home. It is very comfortable and quiet, in lovely surroundings.
I would love to be able to stay, and eat, at Thoiry for a few weeks.
