Old world splendour meets modern day comfort. Really, this place is luxurious perfection. Excellent setting on the lake and all the amenities one could dream of. Super helpful staff and excellent cuisine.

We recently stayed here for three nights, including New Year's Eve. What can I say besides, WOW! We had three rooms, one for my wife and I, one for her parents, and one for my adult daughter (20 yrs old). My room was on the third floor, right in the middle of the hotel, facing the lake, with a great... More

Beautiful small hotel with eclectic interior decor. Various styles starting from chinese to indian have been blended in nicely. Small details have been thought of, and every corner looks strange but perfect! There is direct access to the Lake. The outdoor seating and bar is the best part of the hotel, over looking the lake. Its lovely in the evenings... More

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. Fantastic view, quiet, excellent beds and pillows. Excellent restaurant. You'll never want to leave. Special thanks to Jessica. The trainee any company should want to hire.

Very good location with direct access to Lac Leman and close to Montreux. Food and beverage were perfect and the hotel team was very helpful and friendly. We normally love more contemporaine design but the decoration here was very elegant and really pleasant to enjoy. Lots of little attention to details that made our stay wonderful: nice chocolats and cakes... More

Great stay, nice and helpful staff. I went there with my family, staying in this really classy hotel: 2 spacious room, well-decorated, very cosy, so comfortable. One of the lady from the staff told us to take the bus from Vevey to Montreux which was so much easier than taking the car, as the Crhistmas market is so popular. The... More

Perfect, classic hotel. Spacious room. Truly exceptional service. Check-in and check-out was fast and the staff was helpful and kind. They even offered a chocolate box when we left. Beautiful view on the lake from the room. Chocolate in the room. Easy and cheap parking over night close by - pointed out by the staff, which was a nice touch... More

The hotel apparently has several restaurants. I had dinner at the "La Véranda". Fantastic cooking, and great service -- just what you would expect from a 5* hotel. The "homard" was perfectly cooked, and the venison (cooked in traditional "grandmother" style) was the best version of this dish I have ever tasted. The dessert was very good too.

I absolutely loved this beautiful hotel. Every where one looks it is pleasing to the eye. The interior decorating is amazing. The rooms lovely and comfortable, with great attention to detail. Staff were so charming and polite. It was living in someone's beautiful home. We had a meal and cocktails at the oriental lounge with shiva. It was great, the... More
