i stayed for three nights in a duplex villa, it was very pleasant stay. the villa was spacious and nice. nothing to complain about for the hotel except for the breakfast, it was very limited choices and doesn't match the vale for this kind of hotels.

We booked 6 nights here online, from their own website and booking system. We received a formal confirmation. A day later, we got an email saying "ah, sorry, that's not available after all. You could have two days where you booked, then four in a triple room". When I responded that this was poor service from a place with a... More

I have been here a few times during the years, mainly for business but for a “tet a tet” it must be a romantic overwhelming experience. I hope I one day have the time to take my love here. Never a less this is not only the place by the lake, the food is great and you enjoy every minute.... More

Reception was incredibly friendly and helpful as soon as we arrived! We also really loved our cozy beautiful room that had a gorgeous (partial) view of the garden and lake. We had decided to stay here since we were going to a concert at the Montreux Jazz Festival that night and the walk was an easy and enjoyable 15 minutes.... More

Sitting on the terrace on a sunny day with a drink and the best views of the lake, was like heaven. I wish we never had to leave. We stayed for 2 nights plus had dinner in the restaurant one night. Yes it is pricey (as all the hotels in the area appear to be) but worth every bit of... More

We had lunch in the restaurant at the Ermitage. The dining room has splendid views over the lake with a light and airy atmosphere, and the decor had some nice touches. We were aiming for a light lunch, so we ordered one course and shared a pudding; but by the time we'd had the amuse bouche before our main course... More

This hotel should be called a boutique hotel as it is so far removed from the big hotel concept . Its a "must visit" hotel in "must visit location . I stayed for 2 nights and I wish it could have been longer ! All the rooms have a view over the lake as I had one of the cheaper... More

My husband, my teenage son and I spent 2 nights in this lovely ancient mansion which houses nowadays a gourmet restaurant and a small hotel. It’s more a restaurant with rooms than a hotel with a restaurant. Having said that in my opinion it’s one of the few establishments in Montreux offering not only a preferred location directly by the... More

I was in Montreux like less than 1 month before this trip, which was actually a surprise trip for both of our families. Only dad and the mother of the other family knew about this trip so when we came to Montreux, I started to laugh. I love this city! Last time we stayed at the Fairmont Montreux Palace Hotel....

We stayed in the "Villa" room at L'Ermitage during our visit to Montreux. The Villa was very spacious. It's located separately from the main building. There is a living room, dining room, master bedroom, another sitting room off of the master bedroom with a pull out couch, and a nice balcony. Then there is also an annex where there is... More
