This fairytale-like palace is on the lake adjacent to Ouchy Harbor and was built in 1861. It has it all: an excellent location, the best spa in Switzerland, outstanding service, and delicious food, as well as amazing buffet lunches. There's also a new restaurant in the works by chef Anne-Sophie Pic, of the Maison Pic in Valence, France.

                It was probably the worst 5 star hotel that I have stayed in. The carpet in the corridor of the hotel is worn out and looked dirty. The mattress in my room is perhaps the worst example (and probably the cheapest) of any 5 star luxury hotel on planet earth. Sleeping on it is a nightmare, the mattress offers no support to your body and it sags under the weight of the sleeper coupled with the oversized pillow (also of bad quality), there is no hope of getting a good night sleep. However, the breakfast offered by the hotel is excellent and the concierge is very competent.

                Lovely location with views of the lake & mountains. Excellent service from arrival to departure - reception, hotel bar, restaurant, breakfast, car-parking & the spa. 10/10 !!
