A wonderful lakeside experience, with superb swiss touch, great service by the waiters and chefs. The rest of the staff is a little bit stiff--not helping with the luggage, not keeping small promises, but it's not surprising for Switzerland. Take a night drink at the outside bar with the lake view. Great breakfast--not very rich but still nice.

This hotel is good but I couldn't give it 5 out of 5 because the staff just aren't well trained in customer service. It was the sort of hotel where the staff are young, good looking and cool - and made me feel that I wasn't quite as cool as them. The receptionist who checked us in failed to smiled... More

We loved everything about this hotel - its location, view, architecture, décor and luxury. Loved the wellness centre. Services were excellent and the restaurant was good too. We stayed for 4 nights and wished we had longer.

Expensive but worth it, we stayed here for a night on the way home and it was great. The bed had a pseudo four poster effect, there was a turret out the window and Lausanne is beautiful. We took the metro up the hill to have a few hours tourism and to eat out. We slept well and everything worked... More

I had no major expectations since Swiss hotel rooms are usually disappointing when compared to other equivalent European or American hotel standards. However this one had incredible charm and flair, great design combining old and new, young dynamic service from reception to the restaurant and lobby bar. It was one of the trendiest hotels I've seen in Switzerland and didn't... More

This hotel is a very well renovated and refurbished chateau right by the lake, on a busy function. Our room was lovely, a good view of the lake and extremely we'll furnished in the usual neutral colours but well done. The wardrobe space was good and enough drawer space for a longer stay. Bed linen, duvet and pillows were all... More

The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated. The beds were quite firm but we have found this is the case all over Europe. Good sized modern bathroom with large walk in shower.

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
