                      • Fantastic location nice room, very impressive at the banks of Lake Geneva and pure luxury in a beautiful setting. The staff were lovely, the beds were very comfortable to sleep in and food and services were exceptionally good at the Ann Sophie PIc restaurant. The gym was well equipped and mantained to an excellent standard.

                        The hotel is old, bar prices are ridiculous.

                      • The location is good, the hotel is on the shores of the lake at Ouchy and has wonderful vistas, the staff is amazing and tries everything possible. The rooms are extremely elegant and the service is surpurb, the breakfast is one of a kind, great gardens to relax in.

                        Pool spa – super chic and well built into the old building.

                      • Good location and views, the Olympic Museum is just next door and worth seeing, service is excellent, delicious food is everythere in the hotel. The interior spaces are a stunning mix of classical and modern design, the Spa is superb and the staff are excellent, the Concierge is knowledgeable and prompt. The bar and lounge on the ground level is very relaxed and has live music, breakfast is reasonable.

                        Old world elegance in a beautiful setting, prices are NOT small for anything and front desk are poor. A not very efficient air conditioning system in our room.

                      • The location was very convenient, the hotel was exceptional in every way and from the window I was just seeing buildings all around. The staff were very courteous and room was good. My rate included breakfast was a truly excellent buffet, gardens were perfect.

                        The bar area was very dull and the furniture/bedspread/drapes were overly worn. Food was bad.

                      • The service is wonderful and the views are outstanding, hotels such as this dot the great cities of Europe.

                        Our room was over $1,000 per night and totally not worth.

                      • The views across the lake were fantastic, the selection and quality of the breakfast buffet was exceptional, service was the best ever received. Bed was extremely comfortable.

                        The mattress in my room is perhaps the worst example of any 5 star luxury hotel on planet earth.
