“Grand Indeed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Unfortunately we only stayed one night at this fine hotel. You walk down the stairs from the train station and virtually into the lobby of the hotel. Yet, with this proximity to the station, I can't recall ever hearing a train!

We had a lakefront room which provided a wonderful view of the lake and the lakefront walk. The room was modern and bright and had a nice-sized bathroom. The beds were a little soft for my preference (a trend I found throughout Switzerland), but my wife loved them.

The lakefront is down a serious set of steps outside the hotel (and therefore a serious climb back up). It looks like the hotel may have had an entrance from the lake level at one point, but no longer, unless we missed it. Strolling along the lake is beautiful and, if gambling is a pastime, the casino is a 10-minutes walk.

Montreux in itself is beautiful. After our arrival, we decided to have a look at all the hotels because we couldn't really decide from the reviews and rates. We had however thought that we would stay at fairmont. Suisse Majestic is at the perfect location, just across the train station, beautifully renovated, and gives you that fresh feeling. All the other hotels including fairmont had carpets, something I personally hate. They were quite dull and gloomy.

We were especially pleased with the hospitality, given a special rate for the executive suite on the 8th floor by Martin (manager) and allowed a late checkout as our flight was only at night :) The staff is perfect, happy to help and suggest. The restaurants that were suggested were also great. Recommend Mai Thai and Molino.

The whole ambience of the hotel, and their hospitality forced us to stay back one more day! Highly recommend, don't bother checking the others!!!

Room Tip: It's worth getting the lake view room :)

My wife and I spent two nights in this very well located hotel in Montreux. Rooms seemed freshly remodeled from floor to ceiling. With free WiFi in the room as well as in the lobby, I picked my preferred work place during the day between them. Hotel staff deserves a gold star in my opinion with a fairly consistent level of customer service at nearly a deluxe level. The one exception was a young women who fairly enough seemed hassled by the hectic pace at the desk. I enjoyed the meals in the dining room with a stupendous view. I warn you thought, it will be the largest bowl of salad you will ever eat, though it's hardly a problem with fresh greens and nuts.

The room was absolutely perfect. We had a fantastic view overlooking Lake Geneva! Watching the sunset from the balcony will be a memory I hope we never forget.
The hotel was centrally located -- we were able to walk everywhere.
The staff was helpful and friendly.
Bonus: The shampoo and soap smelled REALLY good!

Absolutely the best place to stay in the area. We stayed in really nice places in Rome and Paris but this topped them all. So quiet, relaxing, tranquil! Excellent breakfast buffet. Staff all spoke excellent English and were very helpful! Will definitely stay here again. Great value ! Spectacular views!
