We didn't stay here but returned twice to have some wine and a snack in the luxurious garden. It is well worth the money and spend an hour or so watching the world go by. A beautiful view of the lack also

Hotel has many good things - not least location, the rooms and some of the staff. But it lacks in a number of areas - there are lots of staff - but many don't appear to have had proper training. Breakfast service was really poor. If I was coming back to Lausanne - I would probably look to stay somewhere... More

This is a "grand dame" hotel of epic proportions! The service is the BEST part of this hotel - they arranged biking through local vineyards that MADE the visit as well as several other special events we requested! The suite was perfect with an exceptional bottle of champagne and treats as a welcome gift only to be outdone by the... More

This is a lovely hotel with a wonderful staff and beautiful grounds.The breakfast buffet is grand with many local delicacies and the garden terrace begs you to sit for a lovely glass of wine and enjoy the view.

Spent two days here with the family recently and booked two connecting deluxe lake view rooms. Admittedly, arrived here on the back of staying in some of the top properties in Switzerland like the Trois Rois in Basel, Bellevue Palace in Bern and The Alpina in Gstaaf, so had great expectations for this one. Check in was at 3pm so... More

We stayed here for one week at the beginning of July. The hotel is very impressive with beautiful grounds and amenities. We booked through LHW and requested a high floor, quiet room with lake view, but were allocated to a first floor room. At first we did not ask to change as the room was refurbished to a high standard... More

The reception staff is extremely friendly and nice. Check in/out experience was professional and we felt very welcome. The breakfast food and service was efficient and friendly. Huge buffet spread with lot of local delicacies. The room was clean but the scale was not working. Someone tried to enter my room in the evenings. Might have been housekeeping while I... More

A most enjoyable respite from strolling lakeside, take refreshments on the terasse but mind the cheeky sparrows determined to feast on the nibbles provided. There is a plump tabby cat eyeing off the birds bit they are not intimidated. What you would expect from an LHW property. Delightful garden surroundings, efficient but discreet staff, and lovely interiors, there are an... More

This classic Hotel is probably one of the best in Lausanne. Beautifully located, and definitely worth a visit. However, there are some things about this Grande Dame that need refinement. Firstly, the bath and shower are combined. Something I dislike immensely – especially when the sides of the bath are high (a Jacuzzi), and one has to climb over to... More
