This is 4 metro stops from city center- maybe 8 minutes total. The lake views are worth it. You'll pay less too for this 5 star castle. Their checkin was so easy and the front desk gives you a tourist pass upon arrival for trains/busses. Rooms were extremely comfortable. Serious one of the best beds I've slept in Europe. One...

This is a super hotel, worthy of all the praise and definitely of five star quality except for the breakfast experience. Do they not 'get' breakfast? We know the French do not understand this meal but we are in Switzerland! All the hotel staff at other times of the day are superb, friendly and well trained as you expect from... More

An old castle that has been remade with an added solarium for a stunning lobby interior for a nice romantic hotel that's great for couples. Throughout the rest of the castle, the interior is very clean and has a very modern touch. The elevator buttons are 'touch screen' sensitive - which adds to the modern feel, however, they are a...

The staff are charming and so helpful. We were given an upgrade, always a good start, to a junior suite. The room was lovely, very comfortable bed - views of the lake. Had dinner on the terrace, again overlooking the lake. Good food but expensive, although switzerland seemed very expensive. We were given free metro tickets for the duration of... More

The hotel is ideally located on Lake Geneva and the facilities are nicely appointed. There is a pretty terrace with a small pool and a grand lobby. Unfortunately we were prevented from enjoying the facilities due to a wedding which took over the small hotel. As regular guests we were asked to leave the lobby due to a private function.... More

Wonderful setting nearby the lake, the view is breathtaking. Rooms are quite new, fresh with a lot of light and comfortable. The restaurant is worth a visit as well and the staff is professional and friendly. There is a quiet swimming pool area as well where you can relax a bit as well. I will certainly go back

Booked this hotel at the last minute and so glad we did! Very good location--right on the waterfront and across from the metro station, which provides a quick ride into the old city. Hotel supplied metro passes free of charge. Rooms are well appointed, with generously-sized new bathrooms. Our rooms looked our across the parking lot to the park next... More

We stayed at Le Chateau for 3 nights and enjoyed the facility and the surrounding area. The hotel is lovely and is well situated to explore the town of Ouchy as well as to venture into Lausanne. The hotel has a great location directly across from the water and there were restaurants and water activities within easy walking distance. The... More

This was our first trip to Switzerland and we decided to base ourselves in Lausanne. It was a good choice. The Chateau d'Ouchy is situated right on the lake, and you can walk to several restaurants nearby. The Metro station is a five minute walk, and you easily access most of Lausanne using this service. The hotel is extremely comfortable... More
