Top-notched service. The room is classical and comfortable with modern amenities. It gave me a warm feeling that after the day's end that I was going back to the comfort of Grand Hotel du Lac. Hotel location is great, the lake is just in its backyard. Beautiful!

I have stayed in this hotel during a conference in Montreux. The view and design of the hotel was spectacular. Especially lake and mountains view from the restaurant was breathtaking. Try the cocktails, they are also very good.

We booked for a night when heading up into the mountains. Wish we had had much more time. From the moment we arrived until we left, the service was elegant and refined. Truly a memorable experience. So glad we stopped. Dinner at the restaurant was such a treat. The manager is Canadian so we felt at home. The staff were...

I hopped on the train at 5PM on a Friday and headed to the Grand Hotel du Lac for what was to be a relaxing, de-stressing weekend. I chose this hotel among the other grands in Vevey because if its smaller size, intimate feel and top restaurant. I was not disappointed. The rooms are beautifully appointed with plush towels (lots...

I didn't get the chance to stay at Hotel Du Lac this time in vevey, I was down the road at the Trois Courrones - however I know that on my next trip to Vevey the Du Lac will be top of my list. Christian was great and really looked after us on the two occasions we had dinner there.

We enjoyed 3 nights in this lovely old Relais & Chateaux hotel. We had a comfortable, elegant room overlooking the street (but well sound-proofed), with a very comfortable bed and excellent linens. We would have loved a lake-front view, as those rooms appear to have stunning views. The bathroom was big, with heated towel racks and a nice shower and...
