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

Our initial impression of this grand Victorian style hotel was one of superb decor and style. we were there as a lunch stop on a classic motoring tour of Switzerland, so regrettably, we were unable to assess the living comforts that the hotel had to offer. A truly superb lunch was served by the most unhappy looking staff that I... More

We were disappointed in Hotel Victoria. The public rooms had a stagnant smell of cigarettes and looked tired, in dire need of some updating. Our room, which had a wonderful view of Lake Geneva, also looked worn. This was definitely not up to the Relais & Chateaux standards that we experienced at other properties.

This hotel takes you back to a bygone era, but only in terms of the décor. The man at the front desk was inefficient and even rude at times, which was inexcusable. The view from our room was incredible, which is not at all uncommon in Switzerland, obviously. There was a snowstorm and the surroundings morphed into an amazing winter... More

We visited the hotel in February and it was a complete delight. The hotel is located high above Lake Geneva on a large site with lovely gardens. You feel as though you are perched on the side of the mountain which is lovely. You can access the hotel by funicular from the village below or by an exciting car journey... More

This is not the case at the hotel Victoria ,it is old fashioned in all the best senses of the words . Everything is immaculate from a bygone era and the food absolute excellent simplicity with portions that... More

We were looking for a weekend getaway from Zurich, and this place was just perfect. I spent a long time researching hotels in Montreux, then I came across this place, which is only a 10 minute funicular ride away (hey - who doesn't like riding funiculars?) and has a beautiful view over the city, the lake, and the mountains.
