Only casino in the city

This is the biggest casino in town, and there is only one, we won the roulette quite a lot, it was a fun night. Recommend for a nightlife tourist.

You cannot enter the casino without showing your pass port. This is something we did not know until we arrived at the door. Also, their seems to be a dress code. Our female friend was wearing capris and the "doorman" had to check whether or not this was acceptable. However, her husband who was wearing a tee-shirt and jeans was... More

Hot, dark, boring. Not typical casino, very quite, machines don't make noises, music isn't very loud either. Have to show passport to get in, no free beverage service.

What a treat! We travelled on the electric bus from Villeneuve and came across the casino at Montreux. We had no idea how much history is here, the Queen museum was very interesting an poignant to know that Freddie Mercury spent so much time here. Great experience. Well worth a visit.

A well run and managed casino. Everyone is screened before entry. The slots were plentiful, complimentary beverage centers for players, and a good atmosphere.

The casino is nothing special - it's far too warm inside, there is no air conditioning and with all the lights and machines it makes an unpleasant experience if you are in there too long. Best thing about this place is the 'Queen Studio Experience' as you can read about the history of the band and all about Freddie Mercury... More

The "Mountain Studios" is located on top floor (which is the ground floor, where the parking lot is). Enter the main and on left hand you find the "Queen Studio Experience". First you can take a look at various merchandise and releases from Brian May's personal collection. You can also see original tour costumes, handwritten lyrics and stuff Queen left... More

Dark, tacky - and lots of slot machines. Some gambling tables, but we didn't bother to go in or use any of the machines available. Seems sacrilege to be inside in the gloom when its so beautiful outside. There's a GREAT restaurant attached ( Le saxo) where we had the best meal of our stay. Great food, happy, pleasant staff...
