This is a traditional hotel, oozing class and history, we loved it!
Excellent breakfast, well trained and friendly staff will cater to your needs. The choice of breakfast amongst the best we have experienced. The 2 star michelin restaurant was a little pricey for us for the evening meal, though you could get a set lunch for around 180 CHF (£120).
The Beau Rivage cafe was ok for 3 course evening meal for around the same price and the swiss wines were quite nice 'Chabelais' (not chablis) about 42 CHF a bottle, remined me of the Monty Python 4 Yorkshiremen sketch! Anyway, you'll gather that you have to check prices and get the best value unless you are a millionaire, they know how to charge here, check outthe small teddy bear in the gift shop 680 CHF... The Italian Accademia restaurant,mat the sister property next door was ok, though the staff looked a little thin on the ground and a little stretched. The pool,area is really nice, as is the Olympic museum which is right next door, accessed from the gardens.
Coco Channel actually lived here for some time, staying is a corner suite 460, we were in room 458 which was very nice, recently renovated, and a cool view of the lake.
All in all we would definately return. Check your final bill !! Though I would do that in any hotel to be honest.
The free passes that you are given for the metro which is a short walk away are handy and you can get on and off as you please.
