“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Have stayed at Chateau d'Ouchy for 3 nights when attending a training at IMD. Great value. location was superior, room was very spacious and comfy with high ceiling, though on the 1st floor just above the roof of the restaurant. This didn't bother at all, but large windows looked out to the lake - view was magnificent. Rooms on higher floors have reduce upper space due to mansard inclined walls. Front desk was very helpful. Restaurant was a great place to hand out in the evening.

I very often eat at "le chateau d'Ouchy" for dinner. The meals are always delightful and very raffinate. Enough to eat, and the choice is changing at each season. I couldn't advise on fish however it is one of the specialties, for I never taste it. But the rest is very good indeed, with very good advices on wine. The waitresses and waiters are perfect, smiling and available. The reputation of being very expansive is not that true compared to the other high level restaurants of Lausanne. Book a table in summer for the view on the lake is so nice that it is very easily overcrowded.

This hotel is in an excellent location. I travel quite a bit and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The facilities are very clean. The rooms are quite nice with large showers and bathrooms. However, the beds could be more comfortable.

I am not sure that the hotel would be a good choice for young families but families with older children would be quite happy.

very good location, facing the leman lake.
good vibes at the bar, good music and ambiance, helped by lots of students from IMD closeby.

Room Tip: ask for the room in the old tower or 5th level, even numbers

This is really an experience staying in an old castle like this it is very nice view on the lake but the windows are small , and because it is built as a castle so the rooms are limited designs
breakfast extra,parking as well so i see it's too much for such room 4 star hotel while it was low season

Room Tip: make sure your lake view room with out trees in front of you so you do not pay extra for no view eve...

It's a gorgeous chateau right on lake full of old world charm with a swanky cool lobby and very clean and comfortable rooms. We got a deluxe room on top floor with lake view and huge bathroom. Service is great. We skipped breakfast, but opted for latte and croissant instead at very reasonable price. Metro is within the block. We won't hesitate to go back again any time we are in Laussane.

Nice small hotel, great room in the Donjon (junior suite) with many amenities. No water boiler though. Breakfast was just not good and did not compare to breakfasts we had in other Small Leading Hotels of the World. They need to offer much more style, quality and service there. Some of the staff are very friendly, others are not customer oriented and should be fired.
