“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We only had a few quick hours in Switzerland and this was a perfect place to spend them. The rooms were very nice and had everything we needed. They were quite large for European standards.
The front desk was so accommodating. They helped us with restaurants, maps and tourist information. We ate at the Swiss Chalet which was very, well, Swiss. Fondue, rochlette, all was delicious.
We took bikes our for a ride to the cathedral and then zoomed back to the lake. We felt like the tour de france.
Breakfast at the restaurant down by the water was just magical! It was a beautiful day and we ate with the mountains and lake as our view. The birds were very cute ... and aggressive! Hold on to your croissants!
Loved this place ... would Love to return!

Classy, efficient, clean, quiet, comfortable. Little sister of the next door Beau Rivage, this hotel has all the standards without the exorbitant costs. The setting, overlooking Lake Geneva in the Port de Ouchy is a lovely spot and whether it's dawn or dusk the light on the lake and mountain scenery opposite is super. Great for trips on the lake or a visit to the Olympic Museum and just a short hop on the metro up into town.

Spent a week in this nice hotel with the family.
Booked a junior suite and a connecting room just in front of the lake Leman with a beautiful balcony.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
One of the best options in Lausanne that comes with the correspondent price.

We arrived at the hotel at 2pm, our room was not ready. We were offered a free drink at the bar and sat outside in the Hotel's garden restaurant and admired the wonderful view of the lake and mountains. Our room was very large and spotlessly clean with a view of the lake. The bathroom had a separate shower and bathtub and a large basin with plenty of space for our toiletries. The bath products were Loccitaine, just lovely. Dinner in the restaurant was delicious, although very expensive. Plenty of choices for breakfast and the staff were attentive and very pleasant. Highly recommend this hotel. Paid parking is available at the hotel. The free wifi worked well.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lake.

Great location by the port of Ouchy. Rooms are in separate buildings. The staff is efficient and friendly, which is always appreciated but not always the norm (even in Swiss hotels) these days. Rooms/bathrooms are modern and very clean - wooden floors (so less dust) and comfortable bed. Very private because you do not have to pass through the lobby as you come and go. Prices are much more reasonable than the Beau-Rivage, which is right next door, and you get far more for what you pay - plus the Angleterre staff is superior without the unnecessary (and inexplicable) attitude at the B-R.

The Angleterre & Residence is a stunning top notch luxury Swiss hotel situated on Lake Leman in Ouchy in Lausanne. Adjacent to the Beau-Rivage Palace Hotel, it occupies a series of linked and renovated historic buildings. The style of building is modern restoration with glass and aluminium completed to an exacting quality.

The large bedrooms are decorated to a very high standard with tasteful furniture and decorations. Bed lined, towels, slippers and toiletries are all sheer luxury. The bathrooms are spacious with no expense spared on the fixtures and fittings. There are separate loos in the bedrooms that I have stayed in and some of the rooms have small balconies.

Meals can be had in the restaurant and if inclined you can sit outside with stunning views across the lake to the mountains in France and Switzerland. You are unlikely to find a better breakfast. The restaurant can be busy in the evenings especially at the weekend, so make a reservation if you intend to eat in.

The employees our efficient and discreet - they are here to help you.

There is an modern underground car park next to reception which you will have to pay for. There is also a medium size swimming pool in the grounds of the garden.

For those in need to exercise a walk along the lake promenade is easy and for the more adventitious the metro is within five minutes of the hotel and it will wisk you to the main railway station and then beyond to the city center. The hotel will provide you with a free travel pass. The nearby ferry terminal has boats leaving for Evian across the lake in France at least once an hour.

In terms of cost Switzerland is expensive and so is the hotel. However you will be buying luxury.

Having some (9) friends over for a long weekend, we decided all to stay in a hotel in Lausanne/Ouchy. To keep it affordable, in stead of choosing the 5 star Beau Rivage, we went to the 4 star neighbor (same management).
The set-up of the hotel is very interesting; a separate central reception building and then a couple of beautiful 2 story buildings around it with the rooms. Quality of my room was excellent. Nice bed, spacious bathroom and super lake view.
The hotel features a small outdoor pool (4 x 10 meter) with deck chairs around it. We has splendid weather, so most chairs were taken, but there were always some available.
The restaurant l'Accedemia serves a very good breakfast buffet and lunch. Dinner was great; Italian inspired. It is rather pricey though for what it is, but the great view of the lake (only the boulevard separates you) makes up for it.
The staff is super friendly and helpful. The cleaning staff might show up at the strangest hours though....

Room Tip: Go for the lake view!
