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

Take a trip back in time and visit an age that service was what it still should be but rarely is . 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.

My husband and I stayed here during the Montreux Jazz Festival in July, 2013. It was like stepping back in time to a bygone world of civility and grace. The views from the balconies overlooking the lake are spectacular. Rooms are elegant, bed linens of top quality. Wait-staff is well trained - as one would expect in Glion - and... More

My husband and I stayed here in December for a long weekend hiking. The hotel wasn't very busy which was perhaps why we were so well looked after [room service arrived in 10 minutes]. The public rooms are rather eccentrically furnished but the bar and the restaurant are excellent with very good food and superb breakfasts. The reason for my... More

I am currently staying in this hotel. I'm Swiss and therefore expect pefection. This hotel exceeds my expectations. Its ambiance is that of another epoch. The staff is highly qualified and NOT overly zealous (being overly zealous is, in my opinion, synonymous of lack of experience and of trying to make up for lacking quality). The decoration is simply wonderful.... More
