    Very good

    The views from the hotel are magnificent and the staff are very friendly & helpful.

    The hotel could do with smartening up the exterior - in serious need of attention.

    Good

    Excellent view of lake Geneva from large balcony.

    No breakfast. Parking was a bit of a hassle. Getting ice cubes was difficult.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is right on the lake an the views from rooms with a deck facing the lake are very nice. The rooms are clean with a very comfortable bed and include many amenities. The indoor pool and spa are very nice. If you like to walk the location is perfect between downtown Montreux and Chillon. Both are easy walks along the lake.

    The rooms and hallways are are in serious need of a remodel. Everything is very clean, but the doors, floors and walls are badly outdated and worn. They seem to have remodeled some of the the lower floors, but the rest are overdue for remodel.

    It was perfect! The location was fantastic. We had a lake view room and the view from the balcony was gorgeous. The bed and pillows were more comfortable than any other place we'd stayed in our two week trip in Europe. The staff were pleasant and friendly. The walk to the nearby Chateau de Chillon was one of the best of my life. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

    Switzerland food prices.

    Position is fabulous - view over lake to snow capped mountains. Staff friendly and effiicient. Ideal to walk along lakefront. Large, comfortable room and not a chain hotel "box"

    Superb

    The room was very spacious and nicely furnished, with excellent facilities in the en -suite bathroom. It was relaxing sitting on the balcony looking at the superb view of the lake and the mountains.The beds were extremely comfortable. we had a lovely meal in the restaurant and the waitress was very helpful and oblliging. The receptionist was also helpful with using the internet as I had to book my flight on -line. Unfortunately I didn't have time to use the swimming pool, but it looked very inviting. A lovely hotel, but too short a stay.

    The combination of mixed interior design, restored and contemporary, added a flair to our comfortable stay. The suite was exceptionally clean and hotel staff demonstrated A+ professionalism (both in English and French). The location of the hotel is walking distance from the Casino and surrounding restaurants. Although the in house dinner menu did not provide a huge variety, this was not the case for breakfast. The extensive selection for breakfast catered for all tastes and the stunning views from the restaurant made our morning experience even more enjoyable. We were fortunate to find parking at the door step of the hotel. I would strongly recommend arriving prior to sunset to enjoy the views from the hotel.

    The location of the hotel at the lakeside was perfect, quiet, fabulous views and not too far from the train station and shops/restaurants.

    Fabulous

    My double room on the third floor was very comfortable and spacious. It opened to a beautiful, unobstructed lakeside view. The building itself evokes a romantic feeling of a bygone era. The hotel receptionists (two young ladies) in the morning were very friendly and helpful.

    The room could benefit from more lights as it was very dark at night with only two bedside lamps. The buffet breakfast at 23 fr was not good value for money as it had only one choice of cheese, ham and oily fried egg, sausage and bacon.

    The location was great, as long as you have a lake view. I don't think I'd want a non-lake view as you'll be on the side with the train. It was an easy walk into town via the lake-side walkway, or you could take the complementary train (but we just walked as the weather was lovely).

    Well, our Booked.net reservation was apparently lost so they upgraded us to a suite for the same price. Everything was lovely. If we'd had the standard room that we'd paid for, then we probably would have had a room to the front next to the train and no view. If I use the hotel again, which I'll probably do, I will upgrade to at least an lake view. It is expensive, but less than the other hotels in town and the quality seemed as good, if not better, than what I saw of the other hotels in the area.

    The view of Lake Geneva was spectacular.

    Although spotlessly clean, the hotel is tired and overdue for a refurb.

    We stayed in one of the refurbished rooms, it was spacious and luxurious. The hotel is very well situated and we could relax without the noise of the passing train.

    The cleaning staff enters the room without knocking. There is a strange smell when entering the ground floor
