Nice room (No. 503). Very poorly equipped mini-fridge ! At the breakfast buffet on Sunday at 10 o'clock many plates (bred) were almost empty, employees and even the chef going by looking at them ... The Pavillon Terasse Restaurant, for this kind of establishment, could, yet should be more attractive although the service was very attentive and the food fine.... More

Great hotel in all sences: rooms, beds, linnen, staff and food. But prices for food and beverage are exceptionally high, going trough the Swiss roof. We asked for a quiet room, we got very noisy neighbours, visiting for a congress in the hotel. Its nog what we asked for.....

Gracious and elegant hotel on the lake and next door to the Montreux Jazz Festival venue. Lots to do just walking out the front door - walking along the lake, ferry rides across the lake, shopping, restaurants. Also lots to do inside the hotel, several restaurants, shopping, and a spa. The room service food was delicious and very fresh.

This is a beautiful hotel and the service was exceptional. Our room was very nicely appointed and the hotel property was absolutely gorgeous. Montreux has a lot to do and the hotel is right in the center of a great shopping and dining district. Our views of Lake Geneva were incredible as the hotel is situated right by the lake.... More

Probably on of the most legendary hotels in Montreux.With beautiful rooms looking to the Leman lake and the Alps.Room rate for a luxury room,without breakfast,is not cheap...around 280€/night...the location is great and the views too but you can get a 40% lower rate in a close hotel in the centre of Montreaux.Anyway Le Montreaux Palace is a must visit if...

More than 15 minutes being shuffled between the reservation and the front desk.I called around after 3pm and they didn't want to confirm my room location because I needed connecting rooms or ones next to each other. They wanted to charge higher prices than ones quoted at reservation sites

Fantastically-located with well-manicured grounds and excellent pool facilities. Classical decor and excellent service, views, and comfort. Only downside is the cost (like most things in Switzerland), which seemed a little outside my personal value-for-money range.
