We booked a room for three people last night. Finding a convenient offer on the Internet, we have been very satisfied. A dynamic environment, professional staff, an amazing castle. Outstanding services, comfortable and pleasant spa, breakfast terrace directly on the lake. Heritage and modern design blent to create a cradle of relax and surprise.

Arrived on a rainy saturday afternoon - fast efficient reception - provided free local transport tickets for stay (great for shoppiing). Rooms up to expected standard for price & good atmosphere in lobby. No issues with WIFI (as I'd read -ve comments). Strongly recommend the restaurant - good food & service - but book on weekends as it was full... More

We normally stay in Geneva our first night due to flight timings, but this year could not find a room due to the Motor Show. Had to go as far as Lausanne to find a suitable hotel, but that did not matter as we were on our way to Zermatt. Easy to get to by train and the city metro... More

I used to stay at other hotels during my previous business trips to Lausanne, but after colleagues of mine made a booking at Le Chateau d'Ouchy, I could say only say that this is my new favourite place to stay in Lausanne. Perfect to the smallest detail, this place is an amazing mix of history and modernity. Spacious rooms, perfect... More

Very nice and beautiful hotel with classic touch of an old castle. Love the stay especially the easy walk to the Lausanne city centre and beautiful lake view. So much better than a typical business hotel and highly recommended for business or leisure stay!

No detail has been overlooked to deliver an exceptional experience. The rooms are large and tastefully decorated. The elegance extends from the superb bedroom to the bathrooms. I have not been this impressed for a long time. Sufficient wardrobe space, superb bathroom amenities. Wow

From the spectacular visual appeal to the finest service detail, this hotel is first class. The interior design and finishing is supreme, which matched by the effortless service and refined competence of the staff. The location is perfect for a visit to the Olympic Museum, access to the impressive metro service, or a walk along the edge of the lake.... More

Real chateaux and the room is beautifully modernized design. Very clean. Big bath tab with window. The hotel was really nice for us to upgrade. So kind!! If you prefer to stay near the lake, 100% I recommend this hotel. 3 mins from metro. Pity that there is no room service for diner.

I happened to stay here as Geneva was fully booked and crazy expensive for even poor hotels. Conclusion: what a blessing. For business travellers going between Zurich and Geneva, this is a brilliant way to break up the trip. You can zip into Geneva on the direct train in about 30mins and get far more for your money as a... More

In a city and indeed country where prices can exceed well beyond quality, this is a hotel where your money delivers sufficient value. When comparing this hotel to hotels in Geneva, for example, the value versus price really shines. It's also difficult to compare a 5 star in a old building such as this to a 5 star in a... More
