As far as casinos go it is a little small. Located right off the lake though it has a spectacular location. The most interesting part of the casino though is on the second floor--The Queen Museum and their former recording studio

I was visiting the great old town Montreux in September, because I was being part of the great party dedicated to birthday of my beloved Freddie Mercury. The party was on 4-5 September exactly to celebrate his birthday together all his fans around the world. Inside of this beautiful buildind with an old and interesting history we had the party....

No dress code. One security guard in a jogging suit serving as doorman.a five star location in breathtaking beauty but inside. ..well....think two stars red velvet off the Vegas strip. Bus tour pensioners coupons in hand queuing for discount buffet and a mah jong room low end ambiance about the whole place. Too bad. I decided to dine elsewhere and... More

Living in Las Vegas makes me spoiled but the casino floor needs to manage the bad odor that greets you at the door. Otherwise the establishment was a nice little Casino on the Lake.

Freddie Mercury adopted Montreux as his home-away-from-home, and even bought the excellent record studio made famous by the Deep Purple song: Smoke on the Water. In the years since Freddie's passing, the casino has created a museum of sorts where you can see loads of Queen paraphenalia, videos, hand-written lyrics, and the actual 24-track Struder analog recording machine made famous...

I went to the casino to see the Queen Experience. If I were a gambler, I think I'd have enjoyed the ambience in the casino. As it is, I just enjoyed spending time remembering Freddie Mercury at the Queen Experience - and buying Queen souvenirs!

We enjoyed our visit to the Casino which was filled with all manner of colourful and amazing ways to try and beat the odds. We did have a small win as the screen on our machine filled up with rows of roses. We were happy that the win covered the cost of our drinks. It was all a bit of... More

Easy to get to. The casino is in the heart of the strip. Make sure to remember your I.D card/ Passport as they check everyone to go in. I would go back.

Like others before us we visited the Casino in Montreal not to gamble but to see the Queen Studio Experience. We were there on Sunday 4th September 2016, in the company of many other Queen fans, the day before Freddie Mercury would have been 70. We decided to have lunch at the Casino Barriere on the upstairs terrace which offered... More

There is not actually a lot to do in Montreaux and the Casino provided entertainment on a dull afternoon. The casino has a similar look and atmosphere to those in Vegas although on a smaller scale. There is a self service area where you can take free hot and cold (non alcoholic) drinks. There is a good range of table... More
