Firstly Montreux is all very very expensive so you have to just accept that. This place is reasonably priced for what you get considering this fact. It is only a small hotel with 6 or 7 rooms which feels much more personable that the bigger faceless hotels. The room itself was lovely - we had the junior suite which does...

Overall we had a good time in the hotel and I would recommend it for short stays in Montreux / Clarence! On the Plus-side: - The location directly at the lake is suberp - don't miss to book a room with balcony and lake view! - In between all those big hotels with 100+ of rooms, "Au Fil de L'Eau"...

We booked this hotel for a celebratory wedding anniversary weekend. We have spent a lot of our anniversaries in both Montreux and Vevey and for us this was the perfect type of hotel. The Staff: It is a small hotel with a small staff and we found them to be extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. We got by using Franglais...

I tried to make a reservation by email. First in German then in English. Both mails were answered with "???" only. What attitude is this? Even in France I get a service in English in the meantime. Not in the French part of Switzerland obviously. If you do not speak French I advise to look for another hotel.

The only really great thing about this restaurant is the location. It's not worth the expensive prices. Service average - poor wine knowledge. Chips (crisps) with the aperitif. They ran out of the ravioli and the restaurant wasn't busy. Slow, slow service - we ended up ordering a second bottle of wine due to the wait, almost one hour for...

Great Dinner, fab location. Service is excellent and one of the best price quality in Montreux and surroundings. The lobster ravioli and the mushrooms were just perfect. In the garden dining with a really nice ambiance. Not pretentious yet if very good quality. Great selection of wines. Overall a wonderful experience.

Norwegian is as usual punctual, and optimally in terms of customer service on board. Great seats, free wi fi, normally priced food and beverage. Nice and friendly flight attendants. Clean and neatly, all in all a very pleasant trip.

You can tell it's going to be good from the outside. At reception you glimpse the wonderful view over the lake. Staff kindly took our bags up to the 2nd floor.

Stayed one night at this smaller, modern interior hotel on Lake Geneva, just next door to Montreux, Switzerland. The best aspect of this lovely property is that it is right on the water with great views and a walking path that leads right to the heart of Montreux. Hotel likes: - Private - Free parking on stone pebble drive -...

This was a lovely place right on the lake. If you are packing a lot of luggage be advised there is not a lift/elevator and you are on your own for lugging it upstairs. It is in a small, mostly residential area. If your a tourist there aren't many amenities as you step out the door except for a Grocery...
