A first class experience which you pay for but they deliver in spade fulls. Excellent reception desk, helpful and friendly personnel. Friendly door men. Lovely room, a deluxe with lake view. Well maintained, excellent housekeeping, beautiful lake views, small balcony- lovely. Another mention of reception who were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable when I ran into problems on our last day, trying to submit the UK passenger locator form. They solved the problem, thank you! We dined in the Beau Rivage Cafe, lovely food, professional service, pleasant ambiance. We also had drinks on a number of occasions in the main bar where the staff were quite excellent. I have nothing but praise for this hotel. Thank you for a lovely stay.

This is a true 5 star hotel . In fact , I have been to a few 5 stars hotel in my life but I have never lived such magical experience. It was a budget for us that we don’t regret as we will remember this time fondly . Everything was faultless and beyond any expectations we had .

Entering you feel immediately as though you are royalty, the palace is beautiful and the decorations are stunning, especially at Christmas. Thé breakfast was delightful, the lake view gorgeous, the beds extremely comfortable and many well thought-out activities for kids. I highly recommend a visit here.

Our favourite hotel in all of French Speaking Switzerland. This is now a third trip here and every occasion is magical. It’s a haven of peace and calm. Head to the CAFE and Qamil Will ensure you have a memorable experience. He even remembers from a trip eight months ago! You can’t teach this sort of attention to detail. It comes from passion. Amazing beef tartare and fillets de perche from the lake. The lounge is also a great place to hang out for a cocktail and if you have the occasion this winter do go out into the champagne tent. We’ve done at Ana Sophie Pic twice previously and considering perhaps the best restaurants we visited on Earth and we have been to 11 Madison. On this occasion we couldn’t eat at Anne-Sophie as it was closed due to several staff getting infected however the hotel quickly found a solution with a table in the CAFE and a courtesy glass of Champagne. At the moment, an antigen test is required to enter the pool and spa area and only valid 24 hours which is a bit of her struggle. We went to pharmacy Ouchy just two minutes away for antigen tests however the gentlemen who tested us was rushing and a little aggressive and our noses still hurt. it’s perhaps the most aggressive test we had so far. If the hotel could organise in-house tests that would be amazing and we have seen this elsewhere.
