Ok so the rooms are a little old fashioned, but who goes to Switzerland to stay in their room? Service was excellent, communal areas were lovely and the food was good. Hotel is central and is handy for the lake, railway station and shops. My husband and I enjoyed our stay.

Stayed here in MAY 2011. The hotel has a very friendly and caring staff. Rooms are clean and warm. They serve decent breakfast, which includes, bread, croissants, lots of fruits, corn flakes , milk, coffee etc. Non-vegetarian and eggetarians have other options too. The hotel is located very much close to the local markets and cafeterias. The entire surrounding is apt for people who want to do some experiments in night photography. Above all, it is located near a local Casino, so all those who want to try their hands on luck can opt for this place :).
Had a memorable stay here and wish all of you the same.

Room Tip: We had a great stay, and wish all of you the same... :)

If you’re looking for a brand new design hotel, I would not recommend Eden.
But, if you’re in favour of authenticity combined with modern comfort, look no further.
On my business trips, I always try to find a hotel that blends in with the surroundings.
Eden palace au lac, is ideal situated near the Montreux lac and it’s not far away from the train station. The chambers with panoramic view, offer a stunning sight on the lac and the mountains.
I can recommend everyone to get a deluxe room, the space and the quality of the bed is priceless.
One small issue, sometimes you need to book them at least 1 week upfront. The staff is friendly and helpful and even on a bad day they will try to smile…
If you’re looking for a restaurant with good food at the right price, than Chez Gaston will meet all your expectations. It must be said, there are some things still to be renewed, but I feel quite happy to accept these minor details in the relaxation scenery of the belle époque!
Now don’t forget to enjoy the mountain air on the fabulous terrace.

Room Tip: Get a deluxe room with lac view on 4the floor

Excellent location, we paid extra for a room with view and balcony over the lake, absolutely worth it. the room was large and had an impressive bath room. Breakfast was charged extra , but I think it was priceworthy. The breakfast room itself is fantastic.

We stayed for a week with our daughter and her family. We chose the hotel because having been visiting Montreux for 30 years we needed a place to stay by the lake as it was easier for our young grandchildren and us older ones with aching limbs!
We had visited the hotel in the past for the odd meal and a drink.The staff are pleasant and welcoming. The rooms faded, plain, old fashioned and creaky. Obviously it costs a lot to upgrade such a traditional old building but the normal extras which are available in virtually all modern hotels ,even 1 or 2 stars were not there.We thought they had forgotten our tea and coffee in the room so on request they gave us a kettle with two cups but no tea or coffee so we took 2 sachets from breakfast ! The dirty cups were not replaced so we washed them ourselves . No cotton buds or other amenity kits. One of the blinds was broken.
A 4 star hotel , Why? The breakfast was a very good buffet which was to their credit.We did not eat in the restaurant as prices generally in Montreux are very high which is not just the exchange rate.
A pity as we love Montreux region but it is slipping further back and we were disappointed. To summarize , a good location with beautiful views but behind the times.If they improved we would return.

Room Tip: a lake view

We had a lovely few days in this hotel, in a lake view room. Although the weather was poor the location of the hotel is perfect on the lake. We enjoyed the breakfasts and all the staff were friendly. The hotel has very grand breakfast room and public rooms. The bedroom was lovely and clean. The only thing missing is a kettle, typical of most european hotels. We will remember to buy one for the next visit. I would love to visit in the summer to be able to make the most of the pool and gardens

Room Tip: Get a lake view room.

Great location, beautiful dining hall we loved the breakfast and indeed the amazing views! The walk along the promenade was very enjoyable! We took a trip to Vevey for a walk around the old town, the chemical chilling is also worth visit!

Room Tip: We stayed in a family room which had a partial lake view but was perfect!
