It hardly never happens, and certainly not when I am travelling without my famous husband but on a recent trip to Lausanne I got upgraded to the 7th floor tower suite of the Chateau d'Orchy hotel with its 360° views over Lac Leman, the Alps, the bespoke hotels in the neighbourhood and the vineyards of the Vaud. Beautiful mixture of... More

My wife and I stayed at the chateau d'ouchy for two days. We got a very nice upgrade and had a lovely stay. Only complaint is that the bathroom is not enclosed so constantly woke my wife up getting ready as I am an early riser

Chose this off the internet due to its location. Right on the shores of Lake Geneva in an old Chateau. Was pleasantly surprised with the modern interior and spacious and well appointed room. Had a lake view room. It is not close to the train station but plenty of public transport. The restaurant is lovely. On the expensive side but... More

It is a far walk from train station. There is not much to do around the hotel for night life and there were very few restaurants to choose from within walking distance. This hotel is Over priced for its location. Beautiful view of lake Geneva!

We loved every minute of our luxurious stay at Le Chateau d'Ouchy! It definitely has the best view on Lake Geneva of all the luxury hotels, and is reasonably priced compared with Beau Rivage. Our suite was very well appointed, with loccitane products and a wonderful view. The pool and hammam were also very nice. Breakfast was lovely sitting on... More

Excellent location with a lot of things to do during weekend. Morning jogging along the lake makes difference :-) The building is old chateau from 11th century. Nice large rooms well equipped. Good breakfast and finally friendly and helpful staff.

Stayed in September, 2016. They upgraded me to a suite room (316- with a rock star terrace overlooking the marina). I can't say enough good things about the appointments of the hotel. However, is internet important to you? I had trouble connecting and then the connection was so slow, that it took 10 minutes to sync my basic work email... More

This hotel is gorgeous, and is right on the water. You can't ask for a better location. The service was stiff-- not friendly but not unfriendly. The room was amazing! We had the Riviera Suite on the 7th Floor. Wow. Very clean; very cool. The room has windows on all 4 sides with amazing views. We also had breakfast one... More

Really liked this hotel, the building and location are excellent, staff very friendly and efficient. Overlooking Lake Geneva and the spectacular mountain range you cant really ask for much more of a view. The free travel passes are handy and appreciated. Rooms are a good size and were clean, no issues there. The only "negative" I can mention is the... More

We had three nights on the fifth level in the original tower at the chateau (wife and three kids aged 11, 10 and 7). Everything was in walking distance from the metro to restaurants, water activities and the outstanding Olympic museum. Great spot to people watch at night with small concerts happening on the waterfront (till around midnight). Lausanne is... More
