Given that for British travellers Switzerland is eye-wateringly expensive, I think the Hotel du Lac is actually good value for money. We were staying elsewhere in Vevey but visited the hotel on two occasions. Once we sat in the outside bar, enjoying the views of the lake and had a bottle of wine and a shared plate of cheese and...

My wife and I spend one weekend on this hotel and we really like it. The only thing we did not like it is that we order a king size bed and they gave us two single beds join together by a bedspread with different blankets.

Early this past week we enjoyed a lovely lunch of fresh perch from the lake. Lovely service immaculate food Michelin quality. We eat here often! However, out for a walk-on Sunday the 19th July stopped to enjoy a drink close to the harbor on the outside of the hotel at the bar area near the water. We were rudely refused... More

The Grand Hotel du Lac is a wonderful historic hotel with all modern infrastructure. It is located right at the lake Geneva and has a lovely garden with a small pool. The staff was extremly friendly especially at check-in! We stayed there for a short break away to attend the Montreux Jazz Festival - there is a free shuttle bus... More

Superb hardly does it justice. This is just a great hotel in very way. Location, rooms, staff, restaurants, and attention to detail. Breakfast is a delight, it has everything, eggs, bacon, sausage, mushroom, tomatoes, - pancakes fruit etc etc. On the banks of Lake Geneva a short walk along the lake to the centre of Vevey which is situated between...

We spent 3 delightful nights at the Grand Hotel du Lac. The hotel has a wonderful position, steps away from the promenade and the lake. There are very nice open spaces outside the hotel overlooking the lake where one can sit, have something to eat and drink. A walk along the promenade offers plenty of restaurants and interesting sights. The... More

Good in sizing; not too many rooms so not crowded. The room is clean and well prepared for your arrival. We had the room with Lake Geneva view. It was superb. Staff were very helpful and loads of hospitality. I love all flowers there, the view and the breakfast. However, the location might be a bit too far from Train... More
