Stayed for 3 nights in July 2014, and on the whole a very pleasant visit.
Clean and fresh room interior, although we were placed in the '60s extension which really now needs an external overhaul lakeside.. On the downside, No tea or coffee making facilities are provided in rooms, and the train noise every 10/15 minutes begins to grate as the room shakes day and night. There is no AC in rooms, and windows open at night is not on the cards if you expect a full night sleep. TV was small and only 3 English speaking channels were available, only 2 of which worked.. Bathroom was however recently modernised and boasted the usual creature comforts, steam extraction is not however provided and for the safety conscious, neither is Smoke Detection in the rooms, so no worries at least about false alarms.!
Hotel's location immediately next to the lake, and equidistant between Territet and Montreux is absolutely superb for access to the local treats, and the public balcony provides some exquisite lake and mountain views..
Breakfast was included in our booking price although at 23chf per head per night I would have expected a greater choice, I believe it is described as an 'american breakfast' rather than continental with scrambled egg and cooked ham (not bacon) or sausages.. Tea and coffee are not on tap, instead they appear rationed by the waiting staff...
Staff generally all very welcoming, and always eager to please.. English speaking and accommodating..
I would definitely stay again, but next time I will ensure to book high floor lakeside view with balcony, and take ear plugs..! If you arrive by car ensure you also book parking at the front of the hotel, and expect to pay an extra 18chf per night for the pleasure...
