Spent a night here with my wife on our way to Interlaken. The hotel is just a short walk from the train station. Upon entering our room, we were greeted by the spectacular view of the lake and mountains. Room was clean, cosy and old- in a good way. We took a walk to the Chillon Castle and although the... More

If you want plush luxury stay somewhere else but if you can appreciate the charm of family owned and operated one hundred year old plus hotel this is your place. Book a lake view it's worth it a corner room if possible. Ivan one of the owners is great fun to talk with and is most helpful with any requests.... More

This is an excellent value, location, and the staff goes above and beyond. Ivan and David did everything to make us feel welcome and at home They helped with dinning recommendations, reservations,train schedules and anything else we requested. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The service was outstanding!. The location near the train station made our daily travels very easy. Would... More

Finding a hotel within my budget which overlooked the lake was a task in montreunx, but Splendid hit the spot perfectly. We loved the place, the lake was visible from the bed in the room. Breakfast was spartan but the girl at the restaurant was extremely helpful and customer friendly. David, the manager was helpful and so was one of... More

If youre looking for an excellent value hotel for your stay with staff that really take a keen interest in your visit and provide an incredibly high level of customer service, dont bother looking anyway else but this hotel. We didnt experience any of the noise that a couple of other reviewers mentioned so cant comment there. Room was clean... More

I echo Megan K's review. I frankly do not understand Rick Steves recommendation. The only positive thing I can say is that the location is good, but quite noisy. It has been re-done since I last stayed there in 1988, but it is simply an old rundown building. The two brothers that are running it now are very friendly and... More

I am so surprised by the number of positive reviews and Rick Steve's' recommendation of this hotel. Our room was about 200 SF/night and we paid extra for a view of Lake Geneva. This hotel is in an "old" building but instead of a cute old charming place, this is an old rundown place. Even the hallways, filled with old... More

Great location, the lake view from the room was beautiful. The family-run hotel is very welcoming and the service is great. I emailed the hotel before visiting there and I received their call answering my questions immediately. If you come by train, it's a 5min walk to the hotel. You can take the red elevator on the right side of... More

We must have gotten the same room as the others who gave poor reviews. We could hardly believe the rave reviews we read. We chose this hotel based on Rick Steves's travel book recommendation. Our room was in the 200 Fr. range. It overlooks Lake Geneva. However, the room is in poor shape with peeling paint and stained carpets and... More
