We enjoyed 3 nights in this lovely old Relais & Chateaux hotel. We had a comfortable, elegant room overlooking the street (but well sound-proofed), with a very comfortable bed and excellent linens. We would have loved a lake-front view, as those rooms appear to have stunning views. The bathroom was big, with heated towel racks and a nice shower and... More

This is one grand hotel. From every detail it is to the highest quality with professional and courteous staff, amazing views of the Lake and located close to everything. Restaurant is up there with some the best I have been and pricey too. But you get what you pay for, high dining isn't cheap.

Came here for an afternoon for two. Best to book in advance apparently for this (we hadn't), but the chef was able to do it without notice. All perfect save for the scones were clearly pre-made/ warmed from frozen - the first which we had to send back was closer to granite and the second was only just acceptable (score... More

I stayed for a conference in this calm and pastoralist hotel in Vevey. The food is very good and the rooms are comfortable and clean. The location is just near the lake and an afternoon walk can be a pleasant experience. Well recommended.

It's a charming garden lounge that serves the best fruit salad! Fruits are super fresh and juicy. Environment is really relaxing. Service is a bit slow though. Perfect place for afternoon tea during a daily trip to Vevey.
