A pleasant surprise. Top notch. Superb all the way.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent 3 en in the rain (I love). As a writer it stimulates mycreativity. . . It's only that darn jack hammer or bulldozer building next door that gives you no mercy! Earplugs handy or take a long beautiful walk (which us what I love doing). Love DuLac!sass SshhhhGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is in a lovely setting and is beautifully maintained, but, most importantly, every single member of the staff could not have been more kind and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very Nice Hotel"
Very nice location, big rooms and fantastic view of the lake. Breakfast was awesome too but above all, hotel was kept clean at all times. I'm back soon for sure. Totally satisfied.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"a life of luxury"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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 recommendGenuine Expedia guest review
"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 bac […] k.

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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We really enjoyed the lake front location and the ability to have great walks with fantastic views of the mountains.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms very hot. When asked to help cool room ,found out air condition is set on 21 degrees the lowest it will go . They sent someone to room who turned it off and told us to open all windows and leave them open. Not what you expect form a 5 star hotel . Also beds so hard they were very uncomfortableGenuine Expedia guest review

"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
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! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

le personnel bouge beaucoup à chaque fois que nous y sommes retournés et malheureusement pas en bien.Pas de bagagiste ni à l'arrivée ni au départ, service au bar très médiocre à tout point de vue et d'une manière générale il n'y a pas d'âme , en l'absence d'un manager invisible. Nous déplorons cette détérioration du service autant que nous trouvons […] incroyable de payer 40 FS/ jour pour le parking extérieur . !!!!! c'est un peu beaucoup comme 39 FS le pdj .

"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Tolles altes Hotel sehr stilvoll renoviert."
Wir verbrachten ein erholsames romantisches Wochenende in Vevey. Das Hotel passte perfekt: von der Ausstattung über die Lage, das Essen und den Service fühlten wir uns wie die Könige. Das Hotel ist im oberen Preissegment aber absolut berechtigt. So nach dem Motto klein aber fein blieben für uns keine Wünsche offen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Grand palace charm with human scale"
04/23/15 travelistanr1 London
The 1900s architecture hides modern comfort and amenities. An orientalist lounge, a live piano bar, a Michelin star restaurant, loggia and terraces facing the lake and the Alps ( yes, weather permitting, you can see the Mont Blanc). A swimming pool, a garden, this is comfortable and relaxing. Exuberant , enchanting flower arrangements. Expensive goes with it, Wi fi is free but not the necessary overnight parking chf 40......
"Living in Harmony !"

Since my parents stay in the Hotel , until the death of my Father , I only can congratulate the people working in the Grand Hotel du Lac , in Vevey. Food is exquisite , perfect , rooms are very luxuous and the whole ambiance is a stay in a first class place , in Switerland , with Nestlé's headquarters just around the corner , and near Montreux and it's famous Jazzfestival, the whole place just makes you feel like you are at home !

This must be one of the nicest hotels I've ever seen. Elegance; good taste; friendly and out-of-time atmosphere. Fresh flowers perfume everywhere; incredibly beautiful furnishings; a pretty SPA (lacking hydro massage, but still lovely). The room was comfortable and very well designed. The only accident was that, in the evening, a waiter came into my room while I was inside, I was totally naked but she didn't care and went on talking to me like everything was normal, that was embarassing and a bit shocking... I just don't know why this happened! Anyway, everything else was so good that I easily forgot it. I had a delicious cup of Earl Grey tea served in a Japanese style teapot accompanied by meringues. The Oriental Lounge is such a special corner of this place. The hair conditioner (by L'Occitane) provided in the SPA shower was so amazing, it made my hair soft and shiny. I also appreciated the dried fruit and herbal infusion supplied. And the slippers - I think they were the softest ones I've ever put my feet into. The overall experience was just like a dream. I would suggest this hotel to anyone who loves beauty.

This hotel is 10 minutes from home but i decided I wanted to treat my husband and father of my precious offspring to a night just for us! We frequent this hotel quite often anyway, for dinner or a late night drink on their wonderful terrace and are always impressed, especially by the exceptional service. Even if we overstay our welcome on the terrace on a Saturday night , the night receptionist will organise a night cap even if the waiters are finished for the evening, most other hotels in the region just kick you out unceremoniously at midnight! In fact all the staff at this hotel are wonderful, we took my in-laws for the fabulous Sunday brunch just after New Year, food was wonderful and afterwards we were entertained in the bar by the most fantastic Spainish pianist. My father in law asked him if he knew on old Russian folk song his mother used to play... the pianist went away during his break , googled the song, came back and played it perfectly, reducing my father in law to tears! The Valentines experience was wonderful! The receptionist gave us an upgrade to a suite and we had 24 hours to ourselves, fantastic massage and facials for two in the spa, followed by a mind-blowing dinner . So romantic! Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, we felt so pampered and special every moment of our stay!
"Excellent service and luxurious decor."

This hotel is beautifully decorated, the rooms and bathrooms are elegant and tasteful. The views and location are perfect. They make wonderful chocolates in house. However, the best feature of the hotel by far, is the staff, who go out of their way to make you welcome and provide you with everything you could need.
"Luxury by the lake"
03/16/15 Colin P London, England, United Kingdom
This is A truly wonderful hotel. The views across Lake Geneva are spectacular so worth paying a bit extra for a lake view room. Rooms are charming and elegant. The staff deliver highly personal service tailored to one's every wish. Breakfast buffet is excellent with a wide variety of dishes. Also worth the time is the magnificent restaurant Les Saisons, which has superb and different food fully justifying it's current Michelin star - and could look forward to a second on the experience we had. Overall also excellent value for money for a hotel and restaurant of this calibre.
"One of the best in Europe"
This facility belongs to Relais Chateau and is simply one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in in Europe. The staff was professional and went out of its skin to solve any problem (when the internet malfunctioned they did far more than would be expected including providing an slternative computer). The rooms are comfortable with a magnificant view of the lake and the food is of top quality. Great !!!!

Old world splendour meets modern day comfort. Really, this place is luxurious perfection. Excellent setting on the lake and all the amenities one could dream of. Super helpful staff and excellent cuisine.
"Exceptional Property and Service"
01/15/15 GringoWim Sao Paulo, SP
We recently stayed here for three nights, including New Year's Eve. What can I say besides, WOW! We had three rooms, one for my wife and I, one for her parents, and one for my adult daughter (20 yrs old). My room was on the third floor, right in the middle of the hotel, facing the lake, with a great little terrace. Nice sized room, top of the line sheets, towels, towel warmers, accessories etc. Really spectacular. Beyond the accommodations, I would be remiss if I weren’t to mention several staff members. Francesca, who works in the reception area, greeted us and showed us around; she has a very professional attitude and is beyond competent. In addition, she and Giulia (reception) helped my daughter track a package that she had purchased on line and had delivered to the hotel. On the 31st of December, the package had yet to arrive, and we were leaving the following day. The two of them were able to find the package and basically MAKE it arrive that afternoon! Splendid customer service, above and beyond the call of duty. In addition, there are two employees whose names I unfortunately cannot recall (SORRY!). A pleasant young blonde woman in the bar area who mixes a spectacular Negroni, and our breakfast waiter, a young Portuguese man; my in-laws are Brazilian and speak neither English nor French, so the fact that he was able to communicate with them was a huge help. All in all, a great stay. Highly recommend this place for its spectacular facilities and staff. Congratulations Grand Hotel du Lac.

Beautiful small hotel with eclectic interior decor. Various styles starting from chinese to indian have been blended in nicely. Small details have been thought of, and every corner looks strange but perfect! There is direct access to the Lake. The outdoor seating and bar is the best part of the hotel, over looking the lake. Its lovely in the evenings to sit, watching people go by, kids cycling and senior citizens taking their evening strolls peacefully with/without their dogs. The service was excellent. Very helpful staff. Free bicycle rental coupons are given from the hotel which makes living and going around the lake even better. Excellent food. In the restaurant and also at the bar. Very well located, just across the Nestle quarters. Their are plenty restaurants and bars on the lake strip. So afternoons and evenings can't get better.
