The hotel has beautiful views of the lake and my room had a balcony. Very friendly accommodating staff. They opened the restaurant early for me on my departure day, so really care about their customers! Ivan was particularly helpful.

Location was perfect with magnificent views over the lake and only a couple of minutes walk from the main train station. The staff were very friendly, particularly the owner Ivan, who made sure I had everything I needed for my stay in Montreux. Also included is a travel card for free and discounted travel and free wifi. Would not hesitate... More

We booked a room with balcony and lakeview. It's so relaxing to enjoy a cup of coffee with the beautiful lake view. Besides, the hotel is within 5-minute walk from the station and there're many shops and restaurants near the hotel. The hotel also offered us the travel card to take public transport for free in the city. It's very... More

The location of the hotel is excellent as it is near to train station, shopping areas and restaurants. The room was excellent, clean and comfortable. WiFi works really good . Breakfast was included with good choices.

Arrived in Montreux just as the heavens opened. Unfortunately, it continued to rain for the rest of the day. The Hotel Splendid was wonderful. We stayed one night in a family room, looking over the lake. It had the ambience of a stately Victorian hotel which put a smile on our faces. Whilst the decor was looking a little faded,... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel during the first week of August with our 4 month old son. We loved Montreux and the hotel. The location of the hotel is very central and convenient. We got a room with a lake view (paid a bit extra for a lake view). The view was spectacular, the lake with the... More

The location was great, close to the train station, port and lake. But our room was a mess; the terrace wasn't cleaned yet and there were plastic bottles, cigarette and lots of other trash. There were holes in the curtains from the cigarettes and there were stains on the curtains and carpet. Overall, all furniture is in need of renovation.... More

This is a very fairly priced hotel with an excellent location. The hotel is old and a bit tired looking, but the rooms are spacious by European standards and are well appointed. The breakfast is adequate with cereals etc. A frankly don't remember the breakfast or the breakfast room. Location is outstanding. Across the street from the lake promenade. We... More
