This true Victorian hotel is perched high above Lake Geneva with splendid views over the lake and the Savoy Alps. Everything here is in the original Victorian style: The walls are plastered with original paintings, beautiful bronzes are everywhere and there is period furniture all over the hotel. - At last a hotel that has not been "renovated" or "updated"...

I only had lunch with family and friends at this hotel. I had a marvellous time. The cuisine was superb and we all enjoyed the lake of Geneva. We had meat, fish and chicken and the meals were excellent. the desert as well was really tasty and different.

If you like this ancient style and decor this would be a good hotel. I had a feeling it was haunted, with squeaking floors! Switzerland has wonderful views everywhere and this is one of them, on top of the hill overlooking the lake and Montreux. We only had dinner at the terrace restaurant which supposedly is a Michelin star. Unfortunately... More

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times, but honestly it is not my first choice. The views of Lake Geneva and the French Alps are breath-taking. The hotel has a certain old world charm, but each time I visit it, I wish that they would upgrade or at least modernise the rooms and bathrooms. I am all... More

From arriving to departing the service is exceptional. This is a beautiful hotel full of some of the 'old world charm' that is lacked by modern day establishments. The staff are totally committed to giving a first class service and the hotel is run by very experienced owners. We would have no hesitation in returning again and would thoroughly recommend....

Hotel Victoria has wonderful presence - you feel as though you're staying at someone's country home c. 1890. The hotel is perched high above Montreux with wonderful views and a very peaceful garden/pool area. Our two bedroom apartment was spacious and beautifully decorated with period antiques. However…a few negatives - many of the guests would fit in c. 1890 -... More

In my opinion this is one of the most beautiful hotels in the world. Glorious situation with wonderful views. The food is excellent and the service tip top. There is a fantastic buffet breakfast and every day a different set menu for lunch and dinner or a full a la carte menu. All meals are taken on an outdoor terrace... More

We have just returned from 3 days at this lovely hotel. We discovered it 2 years ago when we traveled to glion by the funicular railway and vowed we would return. We had a beautiful superior room overlooking the lake with 2 balconies. At first I thought the shower room a little small until we discovered the main bathroom through... More

I arrived at this hotel after a 20-hour travel. The 5-minute walk from the train station to the hotel almost did me in. Check in was quick and I was shown my room which was not in the main part of the hotel. I had a problem with the hotel room lock, it was the kind that you need a... More

A uniquely bad service in the Relais et Chateaux network and a uniquely bad service in Switzerland, where usually even in modest establishments service is at high standards. Enough to turn a magnificent, historical and charming hotel into a nightmare. The worst part is the restaurant: when I asked for a rare (saignant) lamb, the mâitre said "of course", then... More
