We enjoyed our 10 year anniversary here because not only was the ambiance luxurious but the hotel also had a nanny and playroom in which my daughter age 4 could enjoy her time. The brunch spread was good with many options but there was probably more for seafood and dessert lovers. There was not a great option for vegetarians. There was some meat but we thought it lacked some flavours but it was very thoughtfully prepared. There was a popcorn and candy floss machine which was a cool feature for accompanying guests. The price of the brunch (85 chf) made me give it a 5/5 rating as it felt like it was worth the experience.

Hotel's Favorite
The Grand Hotel du Lac enjoys a lovely location on Lake Geneva in Vevey. It is set back from the shore in its own lush garden. The hotel is convenient to walking along the lake and exploring the old town. The beauty of this hotel is unsurpassed. So many wonderful details everywhere you look. The fairy-tale inspired tea room has midnight matte velvet walls and sumptuous gold and dark blue upholstery and window treatments. As this was our second trip here I made an effort to enjoy their vast collection of ginger jars located throughout the property. Each one so beautiful. My favorites are the black and white ones on the breakfast buffet fireplace mantel. Our tranquil lake view junior suite is elegantly decorated in slate blue and beige with lovely traditional soft furnishings. The view from the balcony is spectacular. The suite is comfortable and spacious as well as completely practical. It has spaces for everything and even an ironing board and iron are in the closet. We stayed for eight nights and did not want to leave. The breakfast buffet staff are particularly delightful and we heartily enjoyed the breakfast foods presented for us. We found everyone at the hotel to be friendly and helpful. This hotel makes a wonderful and quiet base for day trips around the area. We are planning on an even longer stay next year.

After having spent a week in an hotel in one of the well known Swiss ski resort, I was expecting to get the same level of service for an equivalent price. The hotel is nicely located on the lake, especially in you book a room with a view on the lake (at an extra price though). The grandiloquence of the hotel, XIX century grand style - comes with a trade-off. The rooms are small, with a tiny bathroom and a bed in which 2 adults could barely fit (not sure it was a queen size - looked more like a full bed). The valet parking fee was super expensive (40 CHF) for the car to be parked juts in front of the hotel and the restaurants are in the same vein (super expensive). We visit Switzerland on a regular basis, but it is not the reason to have prices at this level when the room is not in par.

Dear guest, To begin with, thank you for having chosen our establishment last Summer and for having posted your comment. We are delighted that the location of the hotel, the room and our culinary offer have fully met your expectations. Regarding the issue you mention with the parking: we have got an outdoor secured car parking of 16 places with valet parking, available upon reservation and at an extra cost.. Last Summer was very special with the expected venue of 40’000 people per day during the unique one time per generation Fête des Vignerons. In that respect, the Grand Hôtel du Lac had expressly informed all its guests of the alternative possibility to park their cars in the public car parking adjacent to the hotel, given the very unusual traffic this summer. We regret sincerely if this was not convenient for you and we thank you for your understanding in this matter. Beside this point, we hope that you appreciated your time with us and are looking forward to welcoming you back on another occasion. Yours faithfully. Luc Califano General Manager

Wow. We had brunch. Brunch? Yes, a blow out food experience. This was not just food , this was Swiss food at its very best. Ok, it wasn't cheap , but it was a foodies dream. The service from entering the immaculate front door to the end of the experience was outstanding. You may not believe that we are not royalty but it would appear so! I believe the Maitre D' was Sebastian? but he made our experience truly rememberable . I'm in Switz for skiing at Champery, 20 minutes away several times during the season but the Grand Hotel du Lac will always be on my agenda. In summer the walk outside the hotel along the lake side in Vevey and Montreux is so stimulating , the colours and the people, I love it!! Don't miss the jazz festival, it is so exciting and yet relaxing! Some times one finds something so good that it's worth shouting about!
