I stayed at the Hotel du Golf for 5 nights, the 3rd week of May. I was part of a tour group and we were all given rooms that had mountain views as I believe this was their off season and they were not too busy. My room was large with a balcony and breathtaking views of the mountains and little clusters of houses. It was nicely laid out with plenty of closet space and lots of hangers - at least 20! The bathroom was spacious and the shower worked very well, although quite a high step out of the tub. Everything was very clean. The rooms also have a safe which is very handy. There is free wifi in the rooms - great for keeping in touch and sharing the mountain views!
We ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel and the meals were very good. Breakfast was a buffet with scrambled eggs, sausages, bread for toasting, cheese, ham, cereals and delicious pastries. The coffee and tea service was pleasant and efficient. Our dinners were also very good with a different menu each night, everything cooked well. Three in our group were on gluten free diets and were well accomodated by the hotel.
I used the spa area for sauna, steam room, jacuzzi tub and bucket shower and everything was clean and well maintained. A very relaxing experience!
The front desk was very helpful with information about the town. The hotel is located a 3 minute walk from a train/bus station that you can take to visit Montreux or Aigle. They also have maps showing local hiking trails, which were unfortunately too muddy and slippery to hike on while we were there. The hotel has a very nice looking patio restaurant/ bar in the back which is probably open in the summer. It would have lovely mountain views, but too cold to be sitting out much when we were there. Apparently it was the coldest spring in 30 years this year, so hopefully outdoor activities are usually OK in May. In spite of the cool weather I enjoyed the stay at the Hotel du Golf.
