“The only port in a storm!”
Reviewed March 1, 2007

Having just driven from Calais on the way to Zermatt, we headed for the the lake on arrival in Lausanne. This hotel just looked right so I parked up across the road and my partner ran in to suss things out. Next thing the big thumbs up and in we go.
So refreshing to find a really comfortable and friendly hotel right in the thick of things! Recently refurbished this hotel felt like 4 rather than 3 stars. The bathrooms were 1st class, the beds sumptuous and the staff immediately friendly and accomodating. If you stay in Lausanne, stay at the Hotel Du Port!

Reviewed November 20, 2006

Upon recommendation of Tourist Info Office we were directed 100m down the esplanade to this warm and friendly family hotel. We were greeted by the owners daughter at reception who (realising we had only 2 days in Lausanne) not only recommended a day trip across Lake to splendid medieival Yvoire Village (700 yr old this year) but also provided bus and boat timetables (Eurail compatible) and then booked dinner for us at the restaurant next door who (she said) did the best cheese fondue in the city .
The view of the lake from our room and the free internet were a bonus to this most enjoyable stay.

  • Liked — helpful staff and view
  • Disliked — cost
