“A Wonderful Stay...”
Reviewed February 6, 2005

We arrived on a Thursday night and stayed for four nights at the Angleterre & Residence. The hotel is very well kept, front desk staff was friendly and helpful upon arrival. Our room was very modern, clean, and extremely comfortable. We had a beautiful view of the lake, as well as the Alps. All of our requests were accommodated, the only disappointment was breakfast not being included in our stay (Paying 375.00 CHF per night!). I would recommend this hotel for it's fantastic location, friendly staff (with the exception of the late night front desk staff, one gentleman was very unfriendly when we checked out at 3am to catch an early flight), and look forward to staying there again.

We stayed at this hotel about two years ago in a newer building up off the street. Our room was spotless and beautifully decorated (really), with an oversize marble bathroom, and nice balcony overlooking the lake. Impeccable service, good food, and nice spa. We travel a lot in Switzerland - always staying in nice hotels - and this is one of the really good'uns. Katie

We stayed at this hotel in July 2004. It is located next door to the Beau-Rivage Palace Hotel and they share facilities. When we checked in we were taken to a room in the building directly facing the lake and over the restaurant. The interior of the building and the rooms were VERY contemporary, but extremely dark and uninviting. There were no balconies. We asked for a different room and they showed us room 1101, a junior suite. This was a more traditional room with Laura Ashley type styling. It was very large with a sitting area and a very large bathroom. This older building has views of the lake (but not completely unobstructed) from lake facing rooms on floors 1 through 3. The room had individual A/C and was extremely quiet. We had a balcony about 10' x 3' with a table and two chairs. The room was very comfortable. Our friends selected a room on the 3rd floor of this older building. The room had a peaked roof and was rather small, with a small bathroom. It had a balcony, but it was very small- perhaps 5' x 3' onto which they somehow crammed two small chairs and a table. It had good views of the lake.

Breakfast was not included and they wanted about $20 per person for a buffet. That seemed excessive so we walked 1 block to a pastry shop each morning and got some wonderful pastries and ate them on our balcony.

The hotel is two blocks from thge Quchy Metro station which is less than a 10 minute ride from central Lausanne.

The staff was great, but for the price we paid for our room I probably would select another hotel for a future stay. Individually controlled A/C was very important in this area as it was quite hot in July. This was one of the few hotels which offered it.
