    I've stayed at this hotel every year since 2007 and noticed that the qualities of service and hotel staff including the food at the restaurant have gone down steadily during the last 4 years.

    I've stayed at this hotel every year since 2007 and noticed that almost everything (i.e. the service, hotel staff, food at the restaurant, room service menu) has gone down in quality. I wonder if the management changed in 2008. I will not come back again for sure.

    Superb

    A beuatiful location right on the lake side. Old-style luxury feel. Cafe with tables and chairs a few metres from the lake. Good weekend price.

    Breakfast a bit on the expensive side, although not uncommon for this type of hotel.

    Superb

    The location is great. It is right on Lake Geneva. We would recommend this hotel but just be aware that there might be better values.

    551 Swiss Francs per night but no lake view? 28 Swiss Francs for a hamburger. This is a pricey place. If you have Apple Mac Air you cannot connect in your room. We had to go to the restaurant to get connected.

    An additional Tax was payable not mentioned on Booking . com confirmation Apart from City Tax mentioned there was Resort Tax 4.00 and Taxe Touristique 2.00 both per day. Restaurant menue limited but breakfasts excellent.

    Fabulous

    Very nicely situated hotel by Genfersee. A little old-fashioned hotel, where you can still sence the glory of the times already gone by.

    It seemed, that in the first floor room the air- condion did not work properly. So it was guite warm already in the beginning of April when the temperature outside was only 7-10 centigrades during the night. The only window in the room was doors to the common terrace, so one could not leave the door open during the night. In some other rooms with real windows and a separate balcony one could leave the window open during the night, if needed.

    staf were very friendly, rooms were comfertable but without an air condition, the hotel located in the center of the city, they offer free bus ride in Montreux, Vevey & Vellneve also they offer free internet &10% discount in the restuarants,cafe,spa of 5 defferent hotels in the city of montreux.

    in my point view , I wished that the rooms were air conditioned in case of planning to visit the city again in the summer.

    What a disaster! Room was booked as Lake View, had to pay an extra Sw. Fr. 60 to change into lake view. The rooms are really old fashioned, airconditioning is blowing but not cooling. There's parking for guests but you have to reserve in advance (where does it say that?). We where having coffee on the terrace, there were 6 waiters, one excused himself since he had to take a private call on his cell phone, the others brought themselves after 15 minutes (I'm not kidding!!!) to ask us what we would like to drink (after several attempts to wave the over). The manager should be fired, his parking space (directly next to the entrance) taken away and they should put some 'real' hotel people in there. Oh yeah, the faucets didn't work, one drain was

    The location at the seaside was excellent. Furthermore, there is a small lawn to relax on.

    Very good

    A very fine hotel in a beautful location - subject to getting a good room! The rooms with views over the lake are the best. The staff are pleasant and there is generally a good "feel" to the place.

    I had reserveda superior room and was initially offered a rather dark, noisy and generally incommodious room on the "city side" of the hotel - which frankly did not correspond to the category of superior. Fortunately, thanks to the cooperation of the staff, I was able to change the room, to something more satisfactory -- though not with lake view!

    The shower system need to be improve. Water doesn't come out strong enough for taken the shower.

    Fabulous

    Rooms were spacious, but not modern preserving the older furniture. Certain hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Location was great with access to the main highstreet and the walking path along the coast of the Lake. Only a 15 min walk to train station or boat dock. Our room on the 4th floor had a balcony. I noticed from the outside that rooms on the lower floor did not have a balcony.

    Some hotel staff were just downright expedient like they wanted to just say yes and get the conversation over with. I would definitely have loved a view from the lakeside, but it costs extra.

    Fabulous

    It was ideally situated for me as I played in the Brass band contest. It also gave me a feeling of a weekend break combined with a weekend of intensive music.

    I booked to stay in a hotel to allow myself to catch up on sleep after a very busy week of work and then evening rehersals. My son and I really did not appreciate being woken up by the rehersal of a brass band at 7am in the morning!!! Our room ( 110) was directly above the rehersal room and although we play in a brass band, we had not anticipated being serenaded so early in the morning!!

    Very good

    The hotel has a great view of lake Geneva and also the beautiful mountain surround. It takes only 10 minutes walking. However, the hotel gave me the ticket for free local transportation.

    Room style is rather old. The free wifi was available until the midnight at the first day I stayed. It was ridiculous. Also, the hotel room rate was rather high with no breakfast . However, if you booked another day, it included breakfast with the same price. Thus, you must check the condition carefully.
