The rooms were very comfortable. The view from the lake facing rooms is spectacular. Definitely worth the extra cost you pay for the view. The Bar was very lively and had some great food. There was a live band which really added to the ambiance. The gym and the spa area was also worth using.

When I came to this hotel in 1989 for the first time, the rooms were all in dark red colour and one had the impression that thousands of moths ware celebrating their harvesting festival in the equally red, heavy curtains. Well, the grand old lady of Montreux had a few face-lifts since that time and the very last one is... More

Beautiful hotel on the lake with a breathtaking view of both the mountains and lake. Staff was very courteous and always ready to help with places to visit and restaurants to go to. The bar and restaurant in the hotel were outstanding as far as the food and ambience goes. Probably the second best Fairmont hotel I have visited the... More

Most stunning hotel. Exquisite rooms and a view to die for. Situated slap-bang in the centre of Montreux. My only negative comment is that the reception staff can't speak a word of German! We are afterall in Switzerland, and German is an official language of the country. We also had to wait nearly 20 minutes before we were able to... More

Of course it is everything you would expect of a five star Fairmont. Location superb and if you take public transport the bus is right outside the door,so convenient for a ride down the road for dinner. Breakfast is outrageous but expensive unless you buy the B&B plan. The whole stay wAs decadently luxury but smaller good hotels seem so... More

When I called mentioning it was our wedding anniversary weekend, they automatically let me know there would be special arrangements in the room which were not mentioned on booking, but truly nice to have. We had an absolutely fantastic chocolat mousse and we arranged some champagne on top. All of this delivered in the room, upon our return from evening... More

We stayed there with my family for my graduation. It's a nice hotel, a historical place, however doesn't look very old. There is an amazing bar on the ground floor (Harry's bar) which is the best pre-party place in montreux. Rooms are quiet large, clean and with a good lake view.

I stayed here for four consecutive nights while attending a large business meeting that was held here. It is a beautiful property with great service. It is also in a great location, as just about everything in town is walkable, including the scenic walk along the lake and to many shops and restaurants. You can also walk to the Chillon... More

Located on the waterfront, this palace hotel delivers on all counts. Helpful staff, an elegant seafood restaurant on the waterfront, beautiful gardens and a superb bar make this our top choice in Montreux. The rooms are big, especially was Swiss standards and proximity to the train station is an additional bonus.
