This is a wonderful property in a perfect location. It is a 100 year plus Beaux-arts hotel that has all the modern amenities. Only two things keep me from giving 5 stars. First, the group I arrived with had several couples waiting several hours for their room. All this amidst general indifference from the staff. Secondly, the hotel food is... More

This property is stunning, from the inside out. We stayed three nights and didn't want to check out! The staff was so friendly and helpful, the Montreux Jazz Cafe was delicious and the room was amazing. The pool and gym are also very well kept. Couldn't have asked for more and we really hope to return again!

The hotel is centrally located and on the lake with spectacular views. One never goes wrong with a Fairmont when it comes to location, rooms, quality of service and food. This is the first Fairmont I visit in Europe not counting the one in Montecarlo that I visited many years ago. Everything from reception and check in/ check out and... More

We had high hopes as fairmont has a good reputation and this was booked as part of a scenic tour. Our room was smelly, small and dingy. Before we touched anything, we called and asked to be moved to another room. An employee was sent up with some sort of spray and headed straight to the bathroom to "fix" the... More

So it has beautiful views as you would expect given the location. It's ifeally situated in the city centre, close to shops some nice bars and reasonable restaraunts. The hotel is clean enough but could do with a refurb. The rooms are dated and the decor reminds me of an old peoples home. It does however have a lift to... More

We stayed five nights in a beautiful suite at Le Montreux Palace Hotel in June. Our room had a useable balcony and overlooked Lake Geneva with the Swiss Alps in the background. The hotel had wonderful food and the staff were very helpful. The location was wonderful, having everything you need in walking distance. Other small Swiss towns were nearby... More

This place my wife and I stayed for business and it was really pretty nice. I will say there are some downfalls to the hotel. If you are in the older portion of the hotel the amenities in the rooms are simply not as nice. We were of the misfortune to be in one of the smallest rooms on the... More

Memorable stay with magical view over lake. Efficient, friendly staff. Quiet comfortable room. Made to feel special. Excellent location. Enjoyed a very good meal in Jazz cafe but no real intimacy and the service was very slow.
