“Views Simply Breathtaking!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

While the hotel has a number of oddities, such as bears and disappearing watches in the lobby, the views from the coffee/bar deck, dining room and lakeside rooms are simply incomparable! The hotel is on the hillside opposite the train station, so benefits from the elevation. The location is also excellent for easy access to the lovely, flowered promenade along the lake and is only about 2 km from the must see Chateau de Chillon. Staff all very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: There is no reason to not get a lake view room if you are staying at this property. Otherwise, stay...

The hotel is wonderful and the staff is amazing. We were treated like royalty when we walked in the door. They upgraded our room to a suite which was amazing. The rooms are wonderful with hardwood floors, large bathrooms, and very comfortable beds. The rooms have great views of Lake Geneva. We ate dinner at the restaurant named 45. Fantastic food and wonderful service. You can enjoy a meal looking over Lake Geneva as the sun sets. We also had the breakfast buffet in the dining room which overlooks Lake Geneva. This hotel is definitely a winner and one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. My wife and I travel a lot in Europe and usually stay in 4- star hotels and I would rank this one very high.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view and balcony. It is well worth any extra cost.

A lovely hotel and so close to the train station although would not have known it (no noise). The hotel offered little luxuries and modern rooms making the stay special (Ladies: L'Occitane toiletries!). The hotel has stunning glass work going up the stair well and a perfect viewing spot of the lake on their balcony. If arriving early and can't check in they will keep your luggage and be sure to get your half price tickets to tourist attractions especially for the Chillon Castle...do not miss, great walk down the lake to this building.

Room Tip: If possible ask for a lake view balcony.

notwithstanding an issue with broken heating on our first nights stay, was an excellent base for our stay on Lake Geneva. Staff were attentive and helped move us to a new, better room after the issue with heating, which was much appreciated after a sweltering first nights stay. Get a lake view if available.

We had a night here en route from Milan to London. The building and its interior are beautiful, the staff on reception are solicitous and helpful, but this is not a good example of value for your 4* money. The restaurant was so pricey we decided not to eat here, even though the views are great. We were kindly upgraded from a city-view room to a lake-view room. The balcony was lovely but the room was far too tiny for two people and two small suitcases. All the grandeur of the facade and the terrace felt a bit superficial with a room so small as to be uncomfortable.

I stayed in this hotel during my trip to Montreux to attend a Citywire event. I wasn't lucky with my room, because I had no views, but if you get one room with views, those are amazing, as you can see all the lake and the mountains. It is just a pair of minutes walk from the station. Breakfast was ok, as it was the bed.
