We stayed for six nights in the Chateau d'Ouchy. Our corner room was lovely -- a view of the lake and of the park. The room would have been ideal had the mattresses been more comfortable. They were the most firm hotel mattresses I have ever slept on, and the mattress pad was ridiculously thin. I ended up asking for... More

Nice concept of old and new with the modern decor in an old castle, but not executed well at all. The bar in the lobby area is lame with its underlit faux-marble bar, as was the Eurotrash crowd that was there over the weekend. The parking area is minuscule and a complete joke. The food is just alright. Room was... More

I strongly recommend Chateau d'Ouchy. Our room was excellent - large, clean, very nice spacious bathroom, plentiful shelf and closet space. Very comfortable bed and Frette linens and towels. The only downside was the dim lighting. There were wall sconces near each side of the bed, but they are not adequate as reading lights - too dim and too far... More

Every time in Ouchy, I will have one night an al fresco dinner with friends on this nice (and quite!) terrace. Food and Service are excellent. There is no traffic nearby what makes it a wonderful place to enjoy food and discussions with friends. I have very much appreciated the kindness and flexibility of the service team - thank you!

Just had a wonderful 4 days at this beautiful hotel. Right on the lakeside, the views are terrific, the food is great and the cocktails even better. We stayed in a junior suite, perfect for us and 2 chidlren - lots of space. It's a quick hop on the metro to the old town of Lausanne, but there's plenty to... More

This hotel is in a very quiet location overlooking Lake Geneva. It is excellent for accessing the Metro line as this is only across the road. The room we stayed in was comfortable and very clean. The weather was kind so we ate breakfast outside. The breakfast is extra but was very good. The views from the lake view bedroom... More

Le Chateau d'Ouchy is located in a perfect location - at the edge of Lake Geneva with views of the Alps. Originally a 12th century medieval castle, it is now a beautiful, modern, classy hotel. The rooms are very large with wonderful views. Very highly recommended!

This hotel remains a favorite. Beautiful room, clean, brilliant service, a reasonable price. This time I tried the restaurant too good food, nice wines, excellent service, expensive, but it added to the fun, as did a splendid drink at the bar! Really sorry I only come to Lausanne every second year to enjoy it

This hotel is absolutely beautiful. Our room was large with a very comfortable bed and great shower. The hotel pays attention to the little details. However, it was also very expensive. Not that you are staying in a hotel to watch TV, but sometimes it's nice to relax with a movie at the end of the day. Movies cost 15... More
