My girls and I stayed here one night after our tour of Chillon Castle in Montreux. It was our fabulous castle/chocolate/cheese tour! Hotel is across the street from the lake. Large room with a beautiful view! Beautiful grounds. Indoor and outdoor pool. Wish we had time to swim. Brunch which was an additional cost was fabulous! Too much to choose...

Fashionable old style hotel with top level services. We felt welcomed and the staff did their best to make our stay perfect. The lake view from the room was stunning. Hotel is perfectly located close to city center and has all the comforts (wifi, parking, cable television, ...) The room was spacious and clean.

Probably one of those hotels in the world that set the standard of the business. Not overdone, simple elegance, flawless service and a sunday brunch to talk about until the next one. All restaurants and Funky Claude's bar are of the same level. Ecellent!

If I am honest I must say that it is difficult to find a bad hotel in Switzerland. I have stayed in more than 20 Swiss hotels in the last few years and even 3 star hotels are good. This however is a hotel in a different category, on par with many of the best Swiss hotels. Everything is good,...

Great venues at the Fairmont (4 different events in different locations) with great organizing. The hotel has amazing, Art Deco interiors and exterior. It is an old palace on the Main Street in Montreux, steps away from the lake and the concert hall that hosts the jazz fest. The staff is quite courteous and the service and meals at each...

My husband and I visited the Montreux Palace this past weekend for a winter getaway, and while the exterior of the hotel is beautiful, and the location is perfect, the establishment itself cuts a lot of corners and could use some serious refreshing.
