For the beginning of our honeymoon, it sure was a good way to start off... We only stayed here for one night in July, but it was definitely worth it. The hotel is very well located and pretty close to everything. The hotel is charming and so nicely decorated. When we made the reservation, there were only rooms with view... More

All the features of a 5 star hotel, with a personal touch (staff is neither too distant nor too familar). Beautiful views on the lake, excellent cuisines, perfect breakfast (although it should be included in the room price). Highly recomended for a short getaway on the lake.

stayed in July 2014. drove from Gstaad to Vevey and enjoyed every minute of the mountains and wine region. Arrival at Du Lac is like going back in time. No one to make sure your bags are set, and a small area like a city hotel to park and enter. Our room JR Suite with lake view was nice enough... More

We stayed in this hotel for a wedding. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we could not fault the hotel in any way. It is probably the most expensive hotel we have ever stayed in in Europe, but it was a wonderful experience. The wedding dinner was excellent.

I stayed 1 night with friends. We were very impressed with the superb service upon arrival, very friendly welcoming staff. The building itself is beautiful inside and out. It has a great grandeur about it and is immaculately presented. We were given a room on the first floor which had a good sized terrace with stunning views of the lake... More

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!
