    Lots of "Belle Epoque" charm. Large bedroom and bathroom, balcony overlooking the lake. Unfortunately the weather was so bad that we decided to curtail our stay, and the desk staff obligingly only charged us for the night we spent there.

  • Couple
    8.8

    The view from the room was simply breathtaking and, although not in the centre of Montreux, it was an easy ten minute stroll to get there.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    The staff (although some were so young I felt old at 43!), the view, location and rather bizarre furnishings. The kids loved the free on-demand movies.

    About 30 years ago this hotel certainly would have been luxurious but it's not by today's standards. Really it's a model of how trying to bolt-on facilities can only get you so far.

  • Couple
    7.8

    Comfortable bed, splendid view of the lake

    bathroom was a bit old

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    Incredibly big rooms and high ceilings for a swiss hotel. A nice pool and gym. Unforgettable view on the lake and the Alps(the higher your room, the better). A big terrace in our deluxe room. Very clean everywhere.

    The hotel is shabby, you rarely see the staff. All in all it's not that bad, but the price is exaggerated even for Switzerland. Too far from Montreux to go on foot.

  • Couple
    8.8

    The lady at the main desk with glasses was excellent.

    The bathroon tiles need replacing and the walls and doors could have done with a lick of paint.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The room was very nice and big , with a vew to the lake. Really excelent. The hotel staff very kind. Brekfast was nice. We really liked our staying in the hotel and will recomand it to our friends.

    The parking is not so comfortable.

  • Couple
    5.0

    The front desk staff was very friendly. The view from the room was very nice.

    The hotel was far from the center of town. We picked this hotel because of the lake view but it took us over 20 minutes to walk to the main train station. The hotel itself was rather run down- paint was peeling off the walls and there were stains on the carpet. The furniture was old and had many nicks- the place did not look like it was well taken care of at all. The buffet breakfast was incredibly disappointing - especially since they charge 23 CHF per person for it! They didn't even offer to make us coffee but we had to get it from the Nescafe machine. While the hotel staff was friendly, it was overall a disappointing experience.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    has the charm and room sizes of an old-style 1900 luxary hotel

    could take a little bit of refreshing nevertheless

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Excellent location. On the waterfront, can walk along the lake to all major sites, close to train station. Balcony with lake and mountain view was a highlight.

    Hotel is undergoing renovations which is a good thing because older rooms, although very clean clean, definitely need a face lift.

  • Couple
    6.2

    The beds were really comfortable and the lake views from our room (despite the heavy rain) were lovely.

    The pool was only open from 10am which as we had to check out by 11am left very little time to use the facilities that are included in the price. We didn't realise this the night before and it wasn't very clear within the broom information booklet.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    The view of the lake & the swimming pool. Comfortable beds.

    It was a bit smelly in the general areas. Bathroom very aged. Not a 4 star as rated. Very over priced.

  • Couple
    6.6

    junior suite layout, great indoor swimming pool

    suite smelled of stale smoke, despite all rooms being no smoking.

  • Family with children
    3.8

    Close to Castle Chillion and the view was good.

    The renovations in the room next door was noisy during early morning.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    Very close to the lake, beautiful view from the balcony.
