I had been debating for days about whether or not I should stay at the Beau Rivage, or the Chateau d'Ouchy, but I'm so glad I stayed at the latter! First, it's a real castle, and it has so much charm that speaks to that. The rooms are just comfortable and modern enough, but you still feel like you're staying... More

As much as this hotel is set in a wonderful setting - renovated castle, on the shore of Lake Geneva, etc. I had some trouble finding sleep. The rooms (at least on the 5th floor) are renovated with a floor that does not absorb noise which means you can hear all of your neighbors' steps along with their doors opening... More

My wife and I were amongst the first guests to book into the Chateau D'Ouchy after this hotel was extensively renovated and reopened in 2008 and, since then, we have returned regularly to enjoy the incredibly beautiful surroundings and the warmth that the hotel's staff unpretentiously affords one. If one seeks understated and relaxed luxury then this is the place... More

D'Ouchy is one of a half dozen top tier hotels in Lausanne but for my money it ranks right at the top of the list. The rooms were clean, staff was friendly and the location of the hotel is second to nine with magnificent views of Lake Geneva, the Swiss Alps and the twin of Evian. There is a park... More

First of all its a castle and gives you an amazing feeling. Its located exactly near the lake! Room is very comfortable but a little small due to location I guess. The service is better then is some 5 star hotel. In general I highly recommend !

Must be great in summer, but even in autumn it has ist charme. Good Location to explore the area around the lake. Lavish breakfast with a view. Historic building, nicely modernized without giving up the historic framework. The rooms are stylish and comfortable. The pool is an outdoor pool - you Need the right weather to enjoy. There's a sports... More

Small luxury room with an excellent location close to metro and with views of the lake. Beds are comfortable and toiletries provided are l'occitane and plentiful. We stayed for 6 nights for a medical conference and we had paid for a premium room but on check in we were given an upgrade free of charge to a larger room on... More

My room was lovely, very comfortable and spacious. The room rating should be excellent. The lobby was a little bling and dated, service at the restaurant was slow and generally felt a little tired. The hotel is located directly on the river and I would consider returning but have plan for a different restaurant in advance.

I had read some of the TA reviews prior to our stay, and was puzzled by the variable reports, some quite negative. We have spent two comfortable nights here and can offer a positive review. The hotel is clean, our room was very well situated, with lake and mountain views and the hotel meets its four star rating well. Check-in... More

With American Express we were somehow upgraded to the room on top floor. Elevator opened up into room. Very nice, large suite with amazing views. Truly an incredible place to stay. I would stay there again. It is an old castle but has been modernized while keeping its character.
