"Happy return!"
This was our third stay at the Grand Hotel , the first still in Best Western days. We have now returned after a decade or so and we found the hotel much improved in all respects. Accordingly, we enjoyed our stay tremendously and hope to return at some future date.

"Quiet and charming"
A quiet and charming place. We loved the small, cozy rooms on the main floor to relax and sip a drink. And the food at the restaurant, although a bit pricy, is delicious. We ate at a pizzeria in Montreau one night and it was disappointing...next time I'd stick with the hotel restaurant. The hotel offered battery-powered bikes for rent which we used to ride through the Lavaux wine region. It was a lovely ride along the shores of Lake Geneva and through quaint little towns.

"Perfect accommodation near Montreux"
At the time of the busy Montreux jazz festival, Vevey and this hotel is an excellent option for enjoying Montreux festivities without the noise and buzz of the surrounding crowd. The charm of Hotel du Lac makes it perfect for a very stay and rest between concerts and musical events.

"Very nice hotel"
My stay at Grand Hotel Du Lac was very nice. The hotel is a beautiful old world hotel. There were a couple of flaws with my stay, e.g. the electric wasn't turned on in my room when I got to my room, they made a mistake on my room service order, but the staff were eager to fix both situations. I would definitely consider staying here again.

Superb Hotel .We stayed the week and found everything to be top notch. with excellent décor set of by magnificent floral arrangements.1st class ambience and eating a pleasure although one small criticism- Sunday night in restaurant my wife's main course had a somewhat tired look about it as though it had been standing a while. This the only niggle and staff all very friendly but appreciated precisely how to perform their roles to ensure a first class stay.

"Bad Service and attitude"
We had requested in advance by email that our room be ready by 12, for which they charge 15% of rack rate, but still had to wait almost one hour for the room. We were overcharged for lunch. Room service is 10 CHF extra. The service attitude and lack of flexibility are horrible. The room was smelling like cigarettes and was musty. I found it quite small, perhaps they should have considered giving a larger room to a family with two children. The restaurant was dangerously overwhelmed with the dietary requirements, serving the wrong plates. The veal filet was overcooked and disappointing. Reception and the host told us breakfast was until 12. We wanted to take breakfast at 11.30 and were sent away. Your terrace restaurant was extremely inflexible for our lunch. It was impossible to get gluten-free french fries, and it seemed impossible even to substitute fried potatoes for fries. Most dishes are not suitable with gluten (Sandwiches, burgers), and the staff was not able to suggest any alternative. Unfortunately we were not the only disappointed guests. I heard the hotel has new management, it seems the attitude has worsened since.

"Nice hotel by the lake"
Beautiful, old school hotel. The staff is great, beds are big and very comfortable. Very beautiful hotel. The negative is the parking of the hotel is expensive (40$ Swiss Frank/day - but you can use public parking next to hotel). It would of been nice to have a coffee machine in the room but it is not common in Europe. I highly recommend

"Luxury stay in an outstanding hotel."
From check in to check out nothing was too much trouble. We opted for the Superior room with a courtyard view and was not disappointed. Although no lake view we had a view of the town. Lovely room beautifully decorated and church bells as a backdrop. Room not huge but very elegant. Do not miss Sunday bbq buffet in the garden. Superb. We will be back.

"Absolutely delightful"
From a wonderful welcome on arrival, through to great food and service in the restaurant, clean spacious rooms and a lovely pool, staying at the Hotel du Lac was wonderful. The staff are friendly, the bar drinks great, and the location fantastic. I don't think I can find fault with anything. I was looking for a relaxing 5 day break and this hotel delivered. In particular, the quality of the staff shone through consistently, from a great welcome, the restaurant and bar staff and front desk always ready to help. Its a fifteen minute gentle walk into Vevey or a free bus outside the hotel which is along every ten minutes. Perfect for a relaxing break from real life.

"Spoil yourself and live the dream"
Fantastic 5 star hotel with splendid views over the lake. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel which can take you anywhere right from vevey through to Montreux and beyond. There is a bus every 10 mins and the hotel provide a free bus pass for your stay. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and it was everything you'd expect for a five star hotel. If I had to say anything negative it would be that on the Thursday the restaurant was closed due to there being a promotional evening held by a major cosmetic company, although this didn't affect us as it was too expensive to eat in there anyway. On the plus side the nature of the promotion meant the place was flooded with models and Aston martins in the car park. I would recommend booking the deluxe as rooms these provide a better outlook over the lake and mountains rather than the road at the back. . . fantastic stay.

"Traumhaftes Oster-Wochenende"
Es war ein traumhafter Aufenthalt. Wir hatten ein Zimmer mit Aussicht auf den See. Der Aufpreis lohnt sich! Das Personal war sehr freundlich. Der Spa-Bereich ist gepflegt und kann mitbenutzt werden (Sauna und Dampfbad). Das Frühstücksbuffet war einmalig! Parkplätze stehen im Hotel zur Verfügung, kosten aber 40.- pro Nacht. Direkt vor dem Hotel am See gibt es einen öffentlichen Parkplatz, welcher v.a. am Wochenende problemlos genutzt werden kann, Sonntags sogar gratis. Insgesamt war unser Aufenthalt sensationell, wir können das Hotel uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen!

"Unberechtigte Preiserhöhung,unfreundlicher Service"
Uns wurde unberechtigt eine Preiserhöhung berechnet: Wir haben ein Superior-Zimmer für 1 Nacht gebucht; es wurde mit Blick zum Innenhof bestätigt. Wir haben im Hotel angefragt, ob es auch zum See möglich ist. Nachdem wir erfuhren, dass alle Zimmer zum See belegt sind und ausserdem ein hoher Zuschlag fällig würde, haben wir abgelehnt. Beim Check-in am Mittag war das Zimmer noch nicht parat; wir wurden NICHT informiert, dass wir nun doch ein Zimmer zum See bekommen. Wir bezogen das Zimmer um Mitternacht. Am Morgen sahen wir, dass das Zimmer Seeblick hat. Beim Check-out wollte das Hotel einen deutlich höheren Zimmerpreis von uns haben als bei der Buchung bestätigt wurde! Wir mussten deutlich reklamieren, bis der Zuschlag storniert wurde. Das Zimmer war bequem, mit schönem Balkon. Der Zimmerpreis und der enorme Zuschlag fürs Frühstück (ohne Eierspeisen (ausser Rührei)...) ist übertrieben. Ausserdem wurden wir in dieser Fünf-Sterne-Umgebung weder begrüsst noch verabschiedet, es wurde nicht gefragt, ob man z. B. noch einen Kaffee möchte. Das Personal macht Dienst nach Vorschrift, so dass wir sehr enttäuscht wurden.

"Hübsches Hotel in sehr schöner Lage"
Das Hotel ist hübsch, sehr gepflegt, das Frühstück ist wirklich excellent - man sitzt bezaubernd schön in einem kleinen Gärtchen. Der Service könnte besser sein - alles irgendwie kompliziert und zu wenig zuverlässig. Tipp ans Management: die Mitarbeiter im Restaurant sollten dringend angewiesen werden, Umsatz auf keinen Fall zu verhindern - ging uns so - habe ich bei anderen Gästen beobachtet. ...Pool dürfte besser gepflegt sein, ansonsten sind die Zimmer aber hübsch. Kann man empfehlen. Karte an der Bar für Snacks ist zu wenig ansprechend.

"Two Very Different Experiences Within Days of Other!"
07/19/15 Josmshank
Early this past week we enjoyed a lovely lunch of fresh perch from the lake. Lovely service immaculate food Michelin quality. We eat here often! However, out for a walk-on Sunday the 19th July stopped to enjoy a drink close to the harbor on the outside of the hotel at the bar area near the water. We were rudely refused service due supposedly for a party at this space, though others were being served! We were in workout clothing and did not desire to have a drink inside which was offered. We are not tourists, having a apartment here and being frequent guests at lunch! Not acceptable service!

"A short and relaxing stay at the shores of lake Geneva"
07/15/15 Barbara S Aarau, Switzerland
The Grand Hotel du Lac is a wonderful historic hotel with all modern infrastructure. It is located right at the lake Geneva and has a lovely garden with a small pool. The staff was extremly friendly especially at check-in! We stayed there for a short break away to attend the Montreux Jazz Festival - there is a free shuttle bus right at the doorsteps of the hotel to go to Montreux for the festival. We really liked to be there - to relax and chill a bit away from the hustle and hetic of the Montreux Jazz Festival. I personally was very impressed by the exraordinary flower decoration.

Superb hardly does it justice. This is just a great hotel in very way. Location, rooms, staff, restaurants, and attention to detail. Breakfast is a delight, it has everything, eggs, bacon, sausage, mushroom, tomatoes, - pancakes fruit etc etc. On the banks of Lake Geneva a short walk along the lake to the centre of Vevey which is situated between Montreux and Lausanne. Beds are superb big and comfortable with great pillows. Even though the hotel was built in 1868 the bathrooms are excellent first class Swiss plumbing. Staff courteous, friendly, helpful and efficient. It's not cheap but if you are going to spoil yourself this is the place to do it.

We spent 3 delightful nights at the Grand Hotel du Lac. The hotel has a wonderful position, steps away from the promenade and the lake. There are very nice open spaces outside the hotel overlooking the lake where one can sit, have something to eat and drink. A walk along the promenade offers plenty of restaurants and interesting sights. The hotel itself is very nicely presented, check in and check out were both quick and easy and the staff cheerful and helpful. We were not able to book a lake facing room as they were all booked up but asked for a quiet, higher placed room. We then ended up beneath the roof, which was fine except the windows are small and it would have been nicer to have bigger windows. However, the room was very nice, maybe a little small but very comfortable and nicely decorated. Bathroom was small and only had a shower which was tiny. Overall though the room was cosy and we were happy. Breakfast was included and was a good buffet in the sunny dining room. The only dinner option whilst we were there was their Saisons Restaurant, we did eat here but the menu was ‘fine dining’ and rather too specialised for our taste. So many options nearby that this is not a problem. We had the ‘High Tea’ at the hotel one afternoon and it was not as good as we had expected it to be, not actually worth the money. We would be happy to stay in this lovely hotel again.

Good in sizing; not too many rooms so not crowded. The room is clean and well prepared for your arrival. We had the room with Lake Geneva view. It was superb.

"Restaurant going down the hill quickly...."
06/28/15 Samuel C
Our wedding anniversary, we decided to go back to the Gran Hotel du Lac for dinner, which is the place were we celebrated our wedding. We were four people in total and had booked 1,5months in advance the same table we always take. Well, for some reason io the terrace we were booked inside (sun and 25 degrees outside). One of the waiters was pretty rude and showed it when I asked him to take my meat back to the kitchen since it was like cardboard. The bill around 750chf, I would have expected much more, as it used to be!!! He toilets were dirty and unkept. The hotel is going down in quality, we won't come back again.
