The room we stayed in was amazing ... it was in the tower and had views facing all 4 directions. Gorgeous hardwood floors, drapes around the bed, huge closet area. Big bathroom with a full bath and two sinks, unusual for Europe. I could go on and on about how awesome our room was. The service and general vibe wasn't... More

Last year I spent 4 weeks in a row at the Chateau d'Ouchy due to a course I took at the business school nearby. The service is excellent and the personnel very friendly. Cuisine is on the upper level quality-wise, but so are the prices, especially the wine card gave me some question marks with regards to the local wines... More

We spent 4 days for Christmas 2013 in Chateau de Ouchy and loved it. Great service, clean rooms and it was spectacular view of Lake Geneva & Alps from our room on the 3d floor. The interior was elegant with Christmas decoration. We enjoyed our walk along the lake. Everything is close by and you can walk to the train... More

A beautiful suite with the best view in town of Lake Geneva; a couple of minutes walk from the Metro station and Lausanne harbour; a massive garden and play area with rides around the hotel... That's the Chateau d'Ouchy for us. We stayed at the main tower, which used to be the real chateau with a dungeon (and the elevator... More

This was my second stay at the Chateau and both stays were memorable. Once again, I was upgraded on checking in (although I have no idea why) with a great room facing the lake with a large bathroom with bathtub and walk-in shower. The air conditioning was extremely quiet and I simply forgot it was on. I even got to... More

For US$560 a night we got a nice junior suite in the tower. Location is great but service is unwilling and you feel like an intruder. We asked the concierge to help us book a room in restaurant and he answered he had to go so I was left without help. No coffee machine forces you to buy coffee or... More
