The location and historic background of the hotel adds to its charm. Service was excellent as expected. One of the dinners did disappoint some since the quality of the food was not up to snuff for a Michelen star restaurant. Maybe it was an off day for the chef. Otherwise, the hotel did not disappoint. Will return to try again.

This hotel delivers, service, food, room, staff ALL top notch. Make sure you leave time to just sit under the trees at the outdoor bar with a late afternoon cocktail and a book; so relaxing. Food is excellent, have a meal on the outdoor patio...wait staff is impeccable. Hi to Hugo...I'm headed to Portugal to visit your vineyards!!

This hotel was a 50/50 selection for us and we are pleased to say that it exceeded our expectations. The service was excellent and the hotel was stylish in a grand fashion. Definitely on the top of the list in the greater Montreux area.

I travel frequently to Vevey for work (there is a major global company headquartered there!) and LOVE staying at the Grand Hotel du Lac. There are a handful of 4/5 star hotels in the area but for the quality of rooms, staff, food and location, Hotel du Lac wins every time.

I had the opportunity to stay (...unfortunately) only one night in this spectacular Hotel and it was amazing. Everything was perfect with an elegance that is not common nowdays; the hall was really full of wondeful flowers and the room was so quite and relaxing. Final opinion : one in the life must be tried!

We stayed here for a couple of nights on the occasion of my sister's wedding which took place in the hotel. You could write an astonishingly long list of things this property does with excellence. One thing that truly stands out is the true, unmistakeable class of an authentic Swiss Grand Hotel that overwhelms you the second you step foot... More

At these prices you would expect perfection. Unfortunately this hotel under delivers. On the positive side I had booked a courtyard room on the hotel's website. On check in, the hotel had upgraded me to a lake view room which had a stunning view of lake Geneva from the balcony - very fortunate as the 'courtyard' rooms face inland and... More

Beautifully renovated hotel, but the service was really lacking. The prices were astronomical and totally unjustified. The room and bathroom were well appointed with everything one expects from a top hotel, but again, there is no real service by fine hotel standards. It seems to be all about gouging their clientele, which they do amazingly well. The bar area was... More
